Blickfeld partners with CubiQ to eliminate measurement errors in the logistics industry to increase revenue and reduce costs

• Blickfeld announces a strategic partnership with robotics technology company, CubiQ, to efficiently automate and digitalize warehouse incoming and outgoing processes. • CubiQ freight measurement solutions with integrated Blickfeld Cube 1 LiDAR sensors are offered under the name CubiQ-X, delivering dimensional weight (DIM) in less than two seconds and providing up to 99 percent accuracy. • CubiQ-X is the only system on the market that can measure pallets secured with black stretch wrap and isn't affected by reflective light conditions. • 200 CubiQ Systems have already been installed and are operational globally for companies like Procter & Gamble and DHL and can be updated to CubiQ-X for even better performance.

January 26, 2023: Blickfeld, the Munich-based manufacturer of breakthrough LiDAR sensor solutions is announcing its partnership with CubiQ, a company developing cutting-edge technology for the automation of logistic processes. Blickfeld's Cube 1 sensors will be integrated into CubiQ's warehouse management solutions. The LiDAR-enhanced systems will be named CubiQ-X.

A measurement system with unique capabilities
CubiQ-X offers warehouses a solution with unprecedented precision for calculating the dimension of objects. The 3D dimensioning system provides the length, width, height, weight and photographic image of the product in less than two seconds. It also scans barcodes and uses natural language processing to read text on labels. CubiQ-X is, thanks to the capabilities of Blickfeld's Cube 1 sensor, the only system on the market which can measure pallets secured with black stretch wrap and isn't affected by reflective light conditions. The solution is technology agnostic and thus can integrate with any ERP or WMS.

Leading companies worldwide already rely on CubiQ
CubiQ is the leading solution for dimension issues in Latin America and is being used by global companies like the US-based consumer goods group, Procter & Gamble; the German parcel express service, DHL; the Chilean cargo airline, Latam Cargo; Colombia's largest airline, Avianca; the Italy-based global industrial conglomerate, CPS Group; and the US-based warehousing and logistics service provider, Magnum Logistics.

Patrick Pylypuik, Vice President of Sales, Blickfeld North America, comments: "CubiQ has created an unfair advantage for its customers in highly competitive industries. Forward-thinking logistic companies, especially Freight Forwarders, Couriers, and Airlines, are selecting CubiQ not only for its ability to formulate DIM accurately in less than two seconds but also seeing ROI in 30 days. The low cost of entry and ease of use make the CubiQ-X by CubiQ Technologies, a must-have for any business that manages freight in 2023."

Camilo García, CEO of CubiQ says: "We are very pleased to be able to take our well-established system to an even higher level with Blickfeld's LiDAR sensors. Our customers will benefit greatly from the extremely fast available data. Their processes will be more automated and digitalized - reducing the lead time to clients by up to 60%, and reducing operating costs by up to 80%. In logistics, speed, accuracy and reliability play a key role, and Blickfeld LiDAR sensors improve all these parameters enormously. Also, our Software-as-a-Service business model makes CubiQ an OpEx investment and as such reduces the financing risk and the tax load."

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

Our retention knobs are manufactured above international standards or to machine builder specifications. Retention knobs are manufactured utilizing AMS-6274/AISI-8620 alloy steel drawn in the United States. Threads are single-pointed on our lathes while manufacturing all other retention knob features to ensure high concentricity. Our process ensures that our threads are balanced (lead in/lead out at 180 degrees.) Each retention knob is carburized (hardened) to 58-62HRC, and case depth is .020-.030. Core hardness 40HRC. Each retention knob is coated utilizing a hot black oxide coating to military specifications. Our retention knobs are 100% covered in black oxide to prevent rust. All retention knob surfaces (not just mating surfaces) have a precision finish of 32 RMA micro or better: ISO grade 6N. Each retention knob is magnetic particle tested and tested at 2.5 times the pulling force of the drawbar. Certifications are maintained for each step in the manufacturing process for traceability.
