DWS Static

Your Benefits

  • Economic alternative to expensive fully-automatic DWS systems
  • Automated invoicing of freight charges using legal-for-trade weight and volume data (revenue recovery)
  • Several freely programmable host interfaces can be used to generate additional data for sorting parcels


SICK has created a number of DWS (Dimensioning-Weighing-Scanning) systems to enable courier, express, parcel, and postal service providers, as well as logistics centers to record all the data needed for their shipments (volume, weight, and identification).

All the relevant data for calculating freight or creating the freight documents can be recorded at the touch of a button.

The systems include the tried-and-tested volume measurement systems VMS510 or VMS520, a reliable static scale, and a hand-held scanner that records code information – all in one stable mechanical unit.

Each product in the DWS Static series is optimized for its specific application: the DWS510 Static for cuboid objects, the DWS520 Static for irregular shaped objects, and the DWS520 Static Extended for oversized objects like non-conveyables.

DWS Static is a universal solution that can be set up in just a matter of minutes. It can of course also be calibrated in accordance with OIML, MID, and NAWI standards.
