Robust automated scanning
In warehouse management, high inventory turnover depends on fast and trouble-free goods movements as well as supply chains that can be traced. This is where manual scanning reaches its limits, as it is too time-consuming, slow and prone to errors, which results in too high costs.
Goods are often moved at high speed both continuously and jerkily, making it difficult to reliably capture the information from a barcode label. This requires fast and robust technology that offers high recognition performance. Scanning barcodes via image processing using the Basler ace camera is a more efficient and much more cost-effective alternative to RFID tracking.
From each automatic scan in real time with the Basler ace camera acA2440-35um in the Rapid Pallet Tracker, an image with the barcode scan is created. It is time-stamped and stored in a database that can be searched via a web-based dashboard. Such a drive-thru barcode scanning system works without the need for forklift operators to stop or dismount and provides immediate feedback on scanning accuracy.
Saved loading time and other benefits
The system saves 25 minutes of loading time per truck, which helps Artemis Vision's customers process more trucks per day. In addition to time, they save money through reduced labor costs and the avoidance of customer penalties and inventory inaccuracies. Compared to the cost of RFID tags, the system can save, at minimum, the cost of one full-time salary per year. Other benefits of RaPTr include:
Requires very little maintenance or space for the equipment
Can be easily integrated into existing ERP systems, but can also be operated independently
Available as a single- or dual-camera model, depending on the size and type of customer barcodes and depending on the warehouse configuration
