Logistics companies make high demands on the degree of automation for different process steps. No matter whether it appertains to For efficient sorting, order picking, incoming and outgoing inspection and storing of goods, customer- and object-related data needs to be captured and processed. VITRONIC offers innovative state-of-the-art camera systems for Parcel Logistics and Warehouse & Distribution companies: VICAMsnap! and VICAMssi2. These systems speed up capture processes, increase productivity of employees and reduce logistic expenses per item.
Advantages in efficiency, productivity and cost-saving
Both camera systems are most suitable for optimizing data capture processes e.g. for handling of returns and inbound inspection, order picking, sorting and outbound inspection. As different code types on packages are read automatically, all capture processes are accelerated, cycle times are shortened and the logistic expenses per item are reduced. The captured data is transmitted to warehouse management or customer relationship management systems and can be used for further customer- or object-related processes. In addition, the productivity of the employees is increased as remarkably more articles are captured in less time.
VITRONIC’s VICAMsnap! is mounted above the workstation, captures barcodes and 2-D codes fully automatically and provides images for archiving. Thanks to the large reading field of 31 cm width, 26 cm depth and 30 cm height, the user can move objects with both hands extremely fast underneath the camera.
This saves time during data capture and increases the productivity of the employees. There is no need for additional and expensive reading stations and materials handling. Thus, VICAMsnap! pays off in a very short period of time.
VITRONIC’s VICAMssi2: The high-speed line-scan camera for highest read rates
VICAMssi2 provides highest read rates at fast conveyor speeds of up to 4,5 m/s. Besides barcodes and 2-D codes, plain text (OCR) is captured fully automatically. Furthermore, the compact camera reduces the energy consumption by 50% compared to cameras of other suppliers. VICAMssi2 is an in-house development of VITRONIC. The system is in the 7th generation of production and has been installed worldwide more than 5,000 times in 40 countries worldwide.
