Order fulfillment operations manage inventory by tracking and sorting goods using 1-D and 2-D codes located on various sides of items or packages. Manual pick and pack sorting applications, such as pick-to-light, put-to-light, and pick-and-pass, use fixed-mount presentation scanners to scan barcodes and verify that the item in hand matches the order.

Laser scanning challenges occur when codes are damaged from transport or handling, or when operators must manually present barcodes to a scanner several times before obtaining a successful read. This results in costly rework, delays and order inaccuracies.

Despite these material handling and presentation scanning challenges, Cognex image-based barcode readers improve pick and pack sorting times and maximize throughput by reliably reading:
  • Omnidirectional codes
  • Codes at angles exceeding 85 degrees
  • Damaged, smudged or distorted codes
