Fast and Reliable Sorting of Goods Thanks to Barcode Reading from Mars Tohken and Basler racer GigE Cameras

Reading barcodes off packages can be a tricky inspection task when sorting goods. This is particularly difficult if the items are of different sizes and the particular packages have the barcodes in different places. The solution? Barcode readers from Mars Tohken using Basler racer GigE cameras.

Mars Tohken is a Japanese expert for auto ID solutions. Among other products, Mars Tohken produces two-dimensional scanners that can read all traditional ID barcodes and 2D symbologies. In one system developed by Mars Tohken, the company combines Basler racer cameras with a barcode reader.

One challenge for these inspection tasks is that the barcode to be scanned can be located anywhere on the package, and in some cases are difficult to distinguish from the background. The packages are also often of different heights and can be standing or even leaning. The camera system must be set up to cover the entire area and provide sharp images.
