Automated Sorting

Deliver the right package to the right place at the right time


Automated sorting systems use 1-D and 2-D codes to move and track goods through a facility. Labels—located on various sides of packages—often need to be read in rapid succession, simultaneously, and from extreme angles. Also, sorting systems must be able to identify compromised labels and quickly correct problems.

Image-based barcode readers are essential for decoding information and ensuring packages are properly sorted and delivered on time. High read rates at automated sorting locations reduce labor costs and maximize productivity rates.
