Logistics industry

The logistics industry, in which control and verification are of importance, has great need for weighing and inspection equipment of the kind supplied by Minebea Intec. In managing the flow of products such as food, materials and liquids between the point of origin and the point of sale or use, it is often necessary to measure and confirm quantities – a task that can generally be easily and efficiently fulfilled by suitable weighing and counting equipment.

Minebea Intec’s high-precision floor and pallet scales are commonly used for such applications, as are its bench scales, truck scales and specialised checkweighing equipment. The robust technology is easy to calibrate and to clean, and is designed for connection of computers, scanners, and the like, facilitating optimal transfer and management of data.

A reliable partner for control and verification equipment for the logistics industry

Minebea Intec has many years of experience in the development and manufacturing of innovative equipment for weighing and inspecting materials. Much of this experience has been in logistics applications, where reliable confirmation of quantities is of importance.
As a dependable partner of logistics companies around the world, Minebea Intec invests heavily and constantly in testing and certification in accordance with various national and international standards and regulations, such as

  • for Ex applications (explosion protection): ATEX/FM/CSA/IECEx/EAC
  • for calibration: OIML/NTEP
  • for ingress protection (IP): up to IP69k

We are thus well prepared to meet the varying needs of logistics companies, whatever the sector they serve – and, of course, to provide the associated quality documentation that might be required for the main logistic´s applications.

Applications of our products

Goods receipt

Checking of goods as received
Ensuring that all received items and materials are exactly as expected is a critical element in ensuring reliability in a high-quality logistics process.
Minebea Intec has a lot of solutions available to check the quantities of incoming goods – efficiently, reliably and fully compliant with applicable quality standards.

Moving and Sorting

Moving and sorting goods
Modern logistics operations typically involve complex goods management processes aimed at optimising use of delivery vehicles. This requires goods to be identified and sorted, with goods of different origins moved as necessary to bring them together.
Minebea Intec floor scales and checkweighing solutions can be used to help control these processes, also optimising this part of the operation.

Pallet handling

Handling of pallets
The pallet, a ubiquitous element of today’s logistics industry, is widely used to transfer goods from one location to another – often being handled numerous times, by different companies or individuals, along the way.
Where weighing of loaded pallets is required for control or checking purposes, Minebea Intec floor and pallet scales can be used to fulfil this purpose in an efficient and user-friendly manner.

Warehouse and Distribution

Warehouse and Distribution
Where goods are transferred to a warehouse or distributed internally prior to dispatch, it is beneficial to check and document the goods’ movements as a means of ensuring quality in the logistics process.
Minebea Intec’s range of checkweighing solutions and industrial scales are ideally suited to this purpose – high-quality products supporting high-quality logistics activities.

Dispatch

Final checking before delivery
Reliable control and documentation of the goods transfer to the recipient is important for commercial and risk-avoidance reasons.
Minebea Intec’s wide range of weighing solutions covers every such application, efficiently and reliably. In some cases, it may be most efficient to weigh an entire delivery truck, before and after loading with collected goods.
