Multiweigh Technologies
Automation leaders in custom fit, custom built solutions

Multi-Dimensioner (SWAD Machine)
Take the guess-work out of your billing and load-planning!



Fast and accurate, dimensions in real-time, including height, length, width and mass of parcels and pallets directly off the trucks along the conveyors.

Our unique approach combines state-of-the-art LED light curtains, as opposed to expensive laser technology. Combined with local content and expertise this translates to providing you with a high-quality solution, that is price competitive, and of an international standard.

Our customers can enjoy the resultant cost saving and the following benefits:

  •     Local support provided by Multi-Weigh Technologies.
  •     Seamless integration with your old and new operational and accounting software systems.
  •     Real-time data available.
  •     Conveyor systems improve process flow while simultaneously collecting dimension data.
  •     No PC is required as a full colour touch screen industrial monitor is standard equipment.
  •     With in-line weighing equipment the mass can also be determined in the same process.
  •     With dimension and mass data being available, our in-house software team can develop intelligent applications assisting with volumetric-mass determination for billing, loading and planning purposes.
