Automated Sorting

Improve automated sorting inventory management using 1-D and 2-D barcode readers


A typical Distribution Center or warehouse facility receives goods from various suppliers and routes those goods to a specific endpoint or stores them for a future shipment date. Automated sorting systems improve inventory management by integrating computer software and machine technology to move and track goods through a facility. Goods are tracked and sorted using 1-D and 2-D barcodes, which are located on various sides of packages and often need to be read in rapid succession or simultaneously.

Logistics automated sorting operations are engineered to meet specific package sorting requirements.  Image-based barcode readers are essential to decode information and ensure packages are properly sorted and delivered. High read rates at automated sorting locations are important to these barcode reading applications to reduce labor costs and improve throughput.
