Among others, the guide covers topics, such as:
- How to select the right equipment by looking at existing processes
- How to calculate the total cost of ownership of new equipment
- How to integrate a DWS system into existing operations with minimum impact on operation
The guide offers practical, educational information to both experienced and first-time buyers of automatic DWS equipment.

The equipment is often integrated into highly automated sorting environments and uses sophisticated laser technology and data-management software. There is a lot to plan for in terms of cost, solutions, implementation and uptime. This guide provides a good overview of all that needs to be considered before, during and after investment.
