  1. Barcode Presence and Rotation

    A leading pharmaceutical manufacturer produces a diverse range of medical products. Many of their products are individually packaged in sealed pouches. Each pouch has a 1D barcode encoding the product’s identification. Before the product can be shipped the company must validate that the correct barcode is on the pouch and verify that the package is correctly aligned for heat sealing.

  2. UV Barcodes for Traceability [Success Story]

    Before shipping to the brand assembler, a supplier of auto visors needs to verify that Data Matrix UV barcodes have been printed on each visor’s safety label. The customer turned to Banner to read invisible 2D Data Matrix barcode and send data via Ethernet IP to a PLC for traceability/error proofing.

  3. Barcode Reading on Pallet

    Banner’s TCNM linear barcode scanner is recommended for scanning and validating the barcodes. It is able to decode over a dozen commonly used linear barcode symbols helping maintain an efficient flow of bottles along the production line. Utilizing the TCNM linear sensor allows for an automated way to confirm the correct product in real time.

  4. Barcode Reading

    The iVu BCR barcode reader scans pallets as they are loaded, identifying that pallets are complete. This ensures that operators know what truck or warehouse location the completed pallet will be directed. After the iVu BCR barcode reader verifies the pallet, the pallet is taken to the warehouse for storage or loading dock for shipment. Banner Engineering’s iVu BCR barcode reader decodes a variety of barcodes, including DataMatrix, Code 128, Code 39, Codabar and many more.

  5. Tracking of Received Goods

    Banner’s TCNM linear barcode scanner quickly and easily detects up to 10 linear barcodes on packages, helping maintain accountability and an efficient flow of packages throughout a distribution center. The TCNM linear barcode scanner is ready to scan right out of the box with SMART TEACH, providing scan rates of 500 to 1,000 scans per second. The linear barcode scanner can read barcodes in ranges from 40 to 600 mm.

  6. High-Speed 2D Barcode Inspection

    Banner’s iVu Plus BCR Gen 2 with remote display offers an easy to use solution for reading barcodes to ensure correct labels have been applied. The iVu Plus BCR Gen 2 models provide both a fine mode, for reading smaller barcodes that require full resolution, and coarse mode, for applications where speed is critical.

  7. Industrial Barcode Verification of Two Codes

    Medicine bottle labels include both a linear and a 2-dimensional barcode. The PresencePLUS P4 BCR reads both types simultaneously to verify that they are correct.

  8. Industrial Barcode Verification on a Cell Phone Component

    The PresencePLUS P4 BCR industrial barcode scanner reads and verifies the small 2D bar code affixed to a component of a cell phone.

  9. Pharmaceutical Product ID and Lot Control

    The Pro, equipped wtih a barcode reader tool, enhances compliance with federal requirements for identifying and tracking pharmaceutical products.

  10. Industrial Barcode Verification on Clear Labels

    An iVu BCR with UV ring light is an ideal solution for detecting barcodes in a low contrast situation. The iVu is coupled with UV illumination for an all-in-one solution that improves contrast on clear labels so bar codes are easily detected.

  11. Industrial Barcode Verification on a Metal Part

    A PresencePLUS P4 BCR industrial barcode reader detects and verifies the subtle 2D barcode that was stamped into a metal gear so it can be tracked through production and in the field.

  12. Intelligent Mail Industrial Barcode Reading

    The iVu BCR is used in many mail applications to help direct mailers from multiple smaller runs as they are combined into larger ones.

  13. Robotic Cell Industrial Barcode Inspection

    It can be difficult and expensive to stop robotic operations to configure and monitor the barcode inspection process. An iVu BCR barcode reader with remote display can be mounted up to 16 m (50 feet) away from the sensor for remote monitoring and troubleshooting while the robot is in operation.

  14. 2D Stamped Industrial Barcode Verification

    A PresencePLUS Pro barcode reader detects and verifies a subtle 2D barcode stamped into metal parts, despite variations in the stamped codes.

  15. Verification of Two Barcodes on a Part

    A part is tracked using both a linear and a 2-dimensional barcode. The high-resolution PresencePLUS P4 BCR 1.3 reads both types simultaneously to verify that they are correct.

  16. Barcode Confirmation on Pallet

    Shipping containers are often labeled with barcodes in order to more easily identify which product is present and ready to be shipped. A sensing solution needs to be present to confirm that the final, shrink-wrapped product is labeled correctly and matches the content inside.

  17. Vision Sensor to Read QR Codes [Success Story]

    iVu Plus BCR Gen 2 with 25 mm Micro Lens replaces hand held barcode readers to collect data from dense, difficult-to-read QR codes on vehicle transmissions. A WL50S high-intensity LED spot light illuminates the target area.

  18. Reading Multiple 1D and 2D Barcodes

    Barcode position can change with the location of each box on a conveyor and the height of the boxes can vary. An ABR 7000 barcode reader decodes multiple 1D and 2D barcodes over a large area in a single inspection, regardless of position or orientation.

  19. Tracking Products through Packaging

    Barcodes used to track packaged produce through the supply chain contain important product information that must be verified at multiple points during packaging. An ABR 3000 barcode reader ensures that the barcode on each package is present and correct.

  20. Reading DPM Codes on Automotive Components

    Direct part mark (DPM) codes can be small, complex, and difficult to distinguish from the material they are etched into. The ABR 7000 barcode reader is available in models specifically designed to solve challenging low-contrast and DPM applications like this.
