Automatically record master data and digitize processes
Master data builds the foundation of automation and is essential for state-of-the-art, pioneering logistics processes. To keep processes running smoothly, master data does not only need to be recorded, but needs to remain up to date and available. Two leading, all-in-one measuring devices are available to ensure this: MultiScan, the solution for automated master data recording during goods-in and goods-out, and ProfileScan, a solution for automated master data recording during ongoing operation. Both devices capture relevant product information and attributes in a matter of seconds and then transfer the data to WMS or ERP systems using standard interfaces.
The self-learning software solution KiSoft Genomix automatically decodes the DNA of items, which is made possible by collecting and maintaining all item attributes that are relevant in an automated warehouse environment. Innovative automated technologies such as Vision Blister and Vision Item Check perform reliable, highly efficient and resource-sparing quality checks.
MultiScan – The all-in-one solution for recording master data
Correct master data is a basic requirement for automating goods flows. MultiScan automatically records all master data and product attributes that are relevant for logistics and transmits them to the higher-level WMS or ERP system using standard interfaces. Master data relevant for logistics includes dimensions, product weight, fragility, stackability, packaging hierarchies and material information. The intuitive, easy-to-use WebApp software supports master data recording and can be adapted to a particular customer quickly and easily. MultiScan means automated master data recording succeeds from the start. The all-in-one solution supports the digitalization of work processes and other processes, increasing competitiveness.

Product master data forms the basis of all automation and is essential for state-of-the-art, pioneering logistics processes. To keep processes running smoothly, master data does not only need to be recorded, but needs to remain up to date and available. MultiScan is the perfect all-in-one solution for automated master data recording.
Fully automatic recording of product dimensions from 3–1,200 mm (0.12–47 in) and weight from 5 g to 40 kg (0.18 oz–88 lb)
Intuitive software with user-friendly menu guidance and user menus in different languages
Standardized transmission of recorded master data to the ERP system or WMS
Available in different lengths and heights
Highly expandable with just the right equipment
Software can be configured specific to the customer – fast and uncomplicated
Precise, automatic recording of item master data
Controlled process for ensuring quality requirements are met
Easy and ergonomic to operate
MultiScan – highly expandable with just the right equipment
Mobile and ergonomic with transport cart and battery box
The practical transport cart and the right battery box make it possible to use MultiScan to collect master data on the go. The comfortable working height creates ergonomic working conditions and the battery runtime of up to 16 hours in mobile operation allows master data to be collected at a variety of locations. Flexibility and mobility help make the most of master data recording.
WebApp – The flexible and intuitive application software
The MultiScan WebApp is a user-friendly web server application that works regardless of the operating system and allows fast and easy master data recording. It features user menus in different languages and the option to create text, number or selection fields with custom content and names specific to the company language.
Extending the measuring area with the right accessories
ScanTape can measure large items up to 3 m (9.8 ft) in length, while the digital vernier caliper and precision scale can record master data for the smallest products – starting at 0.01 mm (0.0004 in) and 0.5 g (0.02 oz) The measurements are sent to the WebApp application software automatically or at the press of a button and then integrated into the master data record.
Developed for shipping textiles – the TexPress
When shipping or storing textiles, having the logistically relevant volume of the product in the master data is important. The TexPress compresses textiles to their actual volume during the measurement procedure, thus determining the optimum storage and shipping size of the item. It saves space and lowers costs for the entire logistics process with precise material master data.
Item identification and visual documentation
Recording item master data and comparing it to the product information in the higher-level WMS or ERP system is often done using a unique barcode. With the barcode scanner, barcodes can be scanned digitally and identified using the master data recorded by MultiScan. The industrial camera takes pictures of the measured item, allowing it to be documented along with the entire master data record.
MultiScan with KiSoft Genomix – intelligent master data management
KiSoft Genomixautomatically decodes item DNA. The self-learning, all-in-one package collects and maintains all attributes of items that are relevant in an automated warehouse environment. In doing so, it adapts itself to the degree of automation of the system. The system centrally provides all the parameters that the automated technology needs for optimal handling. This is how KiSoft Genomix increases efficiency and performance.
ProfileScan – Item master data directly in the goods flow
Correct item dimensions and product data are needed at different stages of the automated goods flow. ProfileScan supports the process by checking the product profiles and the product dimensions at speeds of up to 2 m/s (6.56 ft/s). The measuring frame with an infrared light curtain is integrated directly into the material flow, such as over a roller or belt conveyor. Thanks to its modular construction, it can also be integrated into a closed conveyor system, which significantly reduces time and effort when installing ProfileScan. Different standard interfaces are available to provide a connection to the higher-level control system.
