Steel King Inc.
Steel King Inc.’s cantilever racks are designed to be a cost-effective solution for warehousing. Cantilever racks can be implemented by any facility requiring storage versatility. With no front column, the cantilever rack is faster to load and unload, reducing handling time and costs. The lack of a front column also saves horizontal space normally lost to rack structure, and increases handling clearance. Loads may be placed anywhere along the entire length of a row, and any load or storage slot is immediately accessible. Nearly any type of load can be stored, including long, bulky or odd-shaped items. Info: 800.826.0203, www.steelking.com
Card Scanning Solutions
Card Scanning Solutions' new Snapshell IDR camera scanner is a revolutionary tool for capturing driver’s license information quickly and accurately. Powered by software that can accurately read cards from all 50 states and more than 30 international countries, the Snapshell IDR uses a 3 mega-pixel camera built into its base to snap high-quality digital images of ID cards (up to 600 dpi), populating the card’s text into appropriate fields within a couple of seconds.

Its easy integration into kiosks provides a time- and cost-effective means of automating information collection. The scanner can come bundled with Card Scanning Solutions’ IdScan or Scanshell.net modular software, or can be used with an SDK for smooth integration into third-party software.
