The pressure for distribution centers to increase productivity and reduce labor cost is greater than ever. Distribution centers meet this goal by upgrading to digital reader technology that delivers increased read rates. Cognex barcode readers offer solutions for many logistics applications, such as those used in automated sorting, hand sorting, and bulk sorting.

 

Hand Sorting


 

Reduce cost and increase throughput for logistic hand sorting applications

 
 

Presentation scanning involves passing the item with the barcode in front of a fixed scanner, rather than pointing a handheld scanner at the barcode. Many manual picking applications, such as pick and pass, pick to light, or put to light, are more efficient when using presentation scanning. Scanning for these applications is essential to guarantee order accuracy.
