Developer of machine vision sensors, Cognex announced that an aerospace industry manufacturer has chosen its DataMan handheld ID readers to error-proof part handling and speed order processing at production units.
The aerospace manufacturer has procured over 100 Cognex DataMan 8500 handheld readers to scan ID codes marked on order sheets and on parts, to authenticate whether the orders have been precisely processed. The handheld readers will also be used to generate a traceable path for every path all over the supply chain. The DataMan 8500’s code-reading algorithms assure high-quality performance on difficult 2D Data Matrix barcodes that are marked on almost all kinds of surface. The liquid lens technology enables the handheld readers to read small and long barcodes without any manual alteration to the lens.
The handheld readers feature Cognex 2DMax and 1DMax code reading algorithms. The algorithms provide sophisticated technology for reading both 2D and 1D codes irrespective of the surface, printing method, quality and size. The DataMan 8500 readers also provide Industrial Ethernet communication capabilities.
Cognex’ Business Unit Manager for ID Products, Carl Gerst stated that the DataMan 8500 offers high-quality performance, ease-of-use, and ruggedness for reading the bar codes.
