To a large extent, the smooth operation of a logistics process is reliant on the reliable identification of goods & load carriers and to provide genuinely efficient solutions for identification tasks, you need more than just one type of technology. This is why SICK offer the three most common industrial identification technologies for your product traceability and anti-counterfeiting requirements including; laser-based scanners for 1D codes, image-based 2D and 3D code readers, and RFID readers.
As the shear volume of products being processed by the logistics industry has increased at an unprecidented rate, these organisations require efficient inventory management and warehosuing solutions to cater to this growing demand. SICK can simplify the inventory management process. For example, pallets loaded and labelled with RFID tagged parcels can be simultaneously scanned for palet number, units, goods identifier, serial numbers and process data. All items are identified and transmitted with a single scan using an RFID solution.
You can obtain a complete system solution from SICK as you can combine identification technologies and enhance your application with additional sensors from SICK's extensive product portfolio. An example of this are tote loads that need to be verified by bar code scanners which are triggered by proximity sensors in the storage or retrieval process. No matter how complex your application may be: SICK has a sensor solution for all of your automation challenges,
