DPM Considerations for Automated Manufacturing Lines

On fully automatic manufacturing lines, parts are handled and moved by conveyor, indexer or robot and the ID reader is mounted in a fixed position where the mark can repeatably be placed in front of the reader. Similarly, a presentation reader operates in a continuous reading cycle, automatically performing the decoding task once the operator places the part in front of the reader.
