Identification on multiple sides with hybrid systems

Technology mix solutions from SICK combine the best of all technology worlds to increase flexibility, boost performance, and optimize the price/performance ratio. Based on off-the-shelf camera and laser products, these scalable solutions can be fully customized. Such systems can, for example, use a cost-effective laser scanner to counter the effect of total reflections that may cause cameras to "go blind” (counter-skew reading). Another example: If it is known that the items are aligned in such a way that the labels are usually on one specific side, a camera is used for this side and cost-effective laser scanners on the remaining sides. The systems support 1D bar codes, 2D matrix codes, optical character recognition (OCR), image capturing, and video coding of unidentified labels. They excel with outstanding read rates even for partially damaged codes and lower-quality labels. An under-the-belt camera can be added for identification from all six sides.
