As pallets are loaded and shrink wrapped, a shipping label with a barcode is attached. This barcode identifies the pallet load and notifies the WMS system that the pallet is ready for shipping.
The ABR image-based 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 ABR barcode reader or VE smart camera verifies the pallet, the pallet is taken to the warehouse for storage or loading dock for shipment.
Banner Engineering’s ABR image-based barcode reader utilizes advanced algorithms. Every ABR decodes a full library of 1D and 2D barcodes, including DPM, damaged, distorted, or overprinted codes. The setup is simple with easy configuration, by installing, acquiring image and setting the inspection parameters.
Alternatively, Banner’s free and easy-to-use Vision Manager Software provides a number of tools and capabilities that enable VE Series Smart Cameras to solve a wide range of vision and identification applications, such as item detection, part positioning, flaw analysis, quality assurance, traceability, etc.
