Wiesbaden, January 23, 2017 – Focusing on the demands of digital supply chains and intralogistics, VITRONIC will show powerful Auto-ID solutions at this year’s ProMAT in Chicago. Integrated data capture solutions that combine processes and provide transparency are key for complex supply chains. VITRONIC is your partner when it comes to state-of-the-art hardware components, intuitive software packages and comprehensive service offerings.
Hardware – New line-scan camera VICAM 3S
VITRONIC will introduce the latest generation line-scan camera, VICAM 3S. The camera is the core of our DWS system solutions that combine three work steps (dimensioning, weighing, scanning) at one single point in the process chain. The 3S in VICAM 3S stand for smart, small, and synchronized. Smart – an integrated decode unit on board the camera enables plug and play operation as a stand-alone system. Small – the compact design, with a width of only 45 cm and around 40% less weight, simplifies handling and installation. Synchronized – the system reads, processes, and transmits the data while the goods pass through, offering optimum read results.
“VICAM 3S is the most compact Auto-ID line-scan camera on the market,” explains Wayne Pugh, Vice President Logistics Automation, VITRONIC Machine Vision Ltd. “The integrated decoding unit guarantees superior image quality and reliable data capture in real time”.
Software – Monitoring and Analyzing Data
In order to optimize processes, shipment data not only needs to be captured automatically, but also monitored and analyzed. VITRONIC software solutions are tailored to meet the complex requirements of digitized supply chains and offer a variety of options to utilize the captured shipment data. All information can be archived both locally and centrally and can be accessed by a web browser at any time. Detailed evaluations, regardless of location, form the foundation of targeted process optimization.
Service – Expanding the international service network
Comprehensive consulting, customizable maintenance and service packages, upgrades, and special training courses offered by the VITRONIC Academy are the cornerstones of our Lifetime-Services. With the expansion of its global services, VITRONIC is strengthening its position in the logistics automation sector and helping its customers to benefit from over 30 years of experience in industrial machine vision.
