The idea for the development of an automated, integrated cubing (dimension scanning) and weighing system first began with a need at U.S. Department of Defense supply depots in the mid 1980s. Their receipt of goods from vendors and inter-organization shipments required that military shipment labels disclose parcel dimensions and weight. Furthermore, they needed item cube in their attempts to optimize the use of storage space at supply depots. Prior to the development of an automated solution, their only option was to manually measure product with tape measures, and then weigh them, recording all results manually. The process was time-consuming and error-prone. As a result of this need, the founder of Quantronix set out to develop a more effective and efficient product solution.
By 1987 the prototype of an automated dimensioning and weighing system had been created and information sent to the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). Interest was expressed and several months later, in early 1988, a demonstration of the equipment was arranged. There, DLA officials had an opportunity to see the potential solution, ask questions, and test a product prototype. The initial response was very positive, and in 1989 Quantronix became a prime contractor to the DLA for the installation of a large quantity of dimension scanning systems (model CubiScan® 100).

In 1990 Quantronix began to vigorously pursue private-industry needs for automated dimensioning systems, both in transportation and distribution industry applications. By mid 1990 the company had established itself as a small but innovative and viable supplier of static and in-motion cubing systems, capturing contracts with large courier and logistics companies in both the U.S. and Canada.
Since its development, the CubiScan 100 has been used by a number of governmental and private organizations in warehousing, distribution, and freight manifesting applications. Quantronix has been, and continues to be, a pioneer in the development of automated dimension scanning equipment and now offers the most complete and broadest product line available. We continue to lead the market in price/performance measures and are the standard for small and large static cubing system applications worldwide. CubiScan products are used in a wide variety of automated freight handling (air, ground, rail and ocean), parcel postage, material handling, and warehousing systems where dimensional data must be rapidly and accurately obtained for use in computing shipping charges, shipment and logistics planning, storage space planning, material sorting, and so forth. With a product line that includes the CubiScan 100, CubiScan 150, CubiScan 50-PS, CubiScan 30, CubiScan 1000-VS, CubiScan 1200-AKL, CubiScan 200-B, CubiScan-LC, CubiScan 200-TL, and CubiScan 200-XIR, we are able to satisfy almost any cubing and weighing application in the market. Quantronix is an innovative, problem-solving organization committed to the further development and cost-effective application of sensing technology in industry today.
