Automated tote identification with bar codes

High throughput and a reliable, smooth material flow are the core tasks of every package conveyor. This demands automated identification of totes using identification solutions. Fixed mount bar code scanner with a reading field optimized for intralogistics make it possible to integrate a track and trace function into the process, as well as enable control functions such as routing or assignment to a storage space. High read rates can be achieved even under adverse conditions or when bar codes are partially damaged. Compact image-based code readers of the Lector® series reliably detect even omnidirectional 1D and 2D codes as well as stacked codes.
