ExpressCube manufactures state-of-the-art dimensioning and weighing equipment that will eliminate chargebacks and optimize warehouse and logistic operations. The ExpressCube™ countertop system is a low-cost cubing and weighing system designed to meet point of sale, factory shipping and logistic applications. The unit is capable of measuring the dimensions of rectangular or square objects in inches or centimeters, weigh the object in pounds or kilograms, and calculate the dimensional weight based on user-defined cubing factors. ExpressCube is now a patented technology with the attainment of United States Patent 7,373,722 for its underlying technology.

ExpressCube is classified as a device for measuring package size in a patent issued May 20, 2008. Specifically, it is a package measurement apparatus comprising three measurement devices, one for each dimension. Each measurement device comprises a plurality of signal receptor modules. Each module comprises a row of signal receptors, and a signal energy source. In a first calibration step, the outputs of each receptor are standardized to reference maximums and minimums. In a second calibration step, calibration sets of receptor inputs are created and recorded. During measurement, a measurement of receptor outputs is obtained and matched with a calibration set of receptor outputs to determine the dimension of an object.

"Underlying the patent is the versatility of the ExpressCube technology," commented Lorne Hull, VP Manufacturing. "Our desktop devices open simply and are ready to operate with no special ambient lighting or power requirements. The patent also describes a green friendly device with a power draw of less than 15 watts. That versatility has seen the device installed in a broad variety of interesting applications."

The ExpressCube™ countertop system is a low-cost cubing and weighing system designed to meet point of sale, factory shipping and logistic applications. It enables shippers to meet dimensional weight billing criteria by major shipping companies and the shaped-based pricing criteria of the US Postal Service and similar rules for other postal services.
