  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

    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 Bar Code Verification of Two Codes

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

  8. Industrial Bar Code Verification on a Cell Phone Component

    The PresencePLUS P4 BCR industrial bar code 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 bar code reader tool, enhances compliance with federal requirements for identifying and tracking pharmaceutical products.

  10. Industrial Bar Code Verification on Clear Labels

    The iVu and iVu Plus with UV ring light are an ideal solution for detecting bar codes 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. The iVu UV vision sensor provides 2-dimensional area inspection versus single point inspection with UV photoelectric sensors, which helps establish better contrast in this application.

  11. Industrial Bar Code Verification on a Metal Part

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

  12. Intelligent Mail Industrial Bar Code Reading

    IMB technology combines the capabilities of POSTNET and PLANET Code bar codes into one unique bar code to enable end-to-end visibility in the mail stream. The iVu BCR is used in these mail applications to help direct mailers from multiple smaller runs as they are combined into larger ones. Because the iVu BCR has an integrated or remotely connected display, it provides instant feedback to staff monitoring the process as to how the sensor is working on the production line.

  13. Robotic Cell Industrial Bar Code Inspection

    Since it can be difficult and expensive to stop robotic operations to configure and monitor the bar code inspection process, it's a good idea to install an iVu Bar Code Reader with Remote Display. The Remote Display can be mounted up to 16 m (50 feet) away from the sensor to enable machine operators to easily configure and remotely monitor or troubleshoot the inspection process while the robot is in operation.

  14. 2D Stamped Industrial Bar Code Verification

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

  15. Verification of Two Bar Codes on a Part

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

  16. Barcode Confirmation on Pallet

    In the beverage filling industry, barcode technology can provide many benefits when shipping products among multiple locations. Shipping containers such as shrink wrapped pallets can be 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]

    Prior to installation, engines and transmissions are coupled together on the assembly line. A worker using a hand held bar code reader scans the QR code on each transmission. The codes are small, have minimal quiet zones and are dense with embedded information. Additionally, the bar code readers have a limited range. Combined, these factors made scanning the QR codes difficult, adding time to the assembly process and diverting labor resources.
