These tunnel solutions, which are based on Cognex’s DataMan® image-based barcode reading platform, properly read codes on packages at fast rates with tiny gaps, offering businesses an advantage when trying to speed up sortation and reduce processing times for e-commerce and retail fulfillment.
All tunnels are pre-configured with pre-built reader modules, ready to be set up within a day
“Whether it is new greenfield sites or retrofits to improve the efficiency of existing sites, logistics customers want to be up and running in a short amount of time while maintaining high standards of performance,” said Shweta Kabadi, Cognex Vice President, Solutions. “Modular Vision Tunnels allow for fast installation and easy retrofits, ensuring distribution centers achieve their expected levels of capacity, throughput, and accuracy.”
Five- and six-sided Modular Vision Tunnels feature DataMan 470 image-based barcode readers that use advanced decoding technology and algorithms to achieve up to 99.9% read rates, leading to greater throughput and traceability at inbound, outbound, and sortation areas. Setting up these solutions in vision tunnel for logistic is quick and easy – all tunnels are pre-configured with pre-built reader modules and can be set up within a day, greatly minimizing downtime and delivering fast ROI. Modular Vision Tunnels also offer 3D barcode assignment to ensure the right barcodes are assigned to the right packages to minimize rework.
