Machine Vision for the Logistics Industry

Machine Vision Excellence for the Logistics Industry

When it comes to the dynamic and fast paced world of Logistics and Warehouse Automation, we use our in-depth knowledge and expertise to deliver efficient machine vision solutions. Many of our UK based installations are within blue chip organisations such as Unilever and Wincanton.

The logistics industry encompasses the rapidly growing home delivery market which is utilising the latest in 3D machine vision technology. Our Scorpion 3D Stinger robot vision system is widely used in robot pick and place because it offers a level of accuracy and reliability that isn’t possible with 2D vision systems.

However, the universal demand for improved productivity levels and reduced labour costs has also increased the use of multi-line robot vision systems for standard 2D pick and place applications.

A key challenge for distribution centres is locating and accurately identifying packages or even whole pallets prior to dispatch. Here we supply advanced 1D and 2D barcode reading technology for increased read rates and throughput as well as ensuring full traceability.

We have provided a range of machine vision solutions for a variety of applications, including:

  • 3D and 2D robot vision for pick and place
  • Visual product inspection prior to packaging
  • Barcode and lot code reading
  • Datamatrix code reading

Contact us today to discuss how we can help improve your production process.
