Serial Number and Barcode Reading
Track thousands of small parts during the final assembly process and improve process control
In the final assembly process, Cognex serial number and barcode reading solutions help reduce the number of defective mobile wearable devices entering the supply chain by minimizing the incidence of scrap parts and improving production efficiency. As mobile and wearable devices shrink in size, so do the components that go into them, including barcode labels used for traceability and process control during the assembly process. Manufacturers can experience losses every year when inaccurate parts are assembled and wrong operations are performed on assembly lines with thousands of different intermixed part numbers.
Changing from a manual to an automated serial number and barcode reading process increases production volume and reduces the number of defective products and scrap parts.
