Product traceability and anti-counterfeiting solutions require reliable automatic identification products. SICK offers the three most common industrial identification technologies: laser-based scanners for 1D codes, image-based 1D and 2D code readers, and RFID readers.
Image-based code readers
Image-based code readers provide flexibility, high performance, convenience and simplicity. Even at fast conveyor speeds, SICK image code readers can reliably detect and evaluate 1D, 2D, DPM (direct part marking), and partially damaged codes. These readers identify markings on nearly any surface, including metal, glass, plastic or paper.
SICK barcode scanners accelerate logistics and automation processes. Their excellent reading performance ensures continuous process flow - even with poor quality or damaged barcodes. A high scanning frequency permits high process speeds, and simple networking improves operational efficiency. Plus, compact connection devices save space and reduce costs.
Radio-based RFID technologies in the HF (high frequency) and UHF (ultra high frequency) ranges supplement SICK's industrial automation portfolio. In applications where process-relevant data is modified remotely, RFID makes it possible to store data on writable and re-writable media. And, in contrast to optical solutions, RFID provides reliable identification of all objects - despite dirt and everyday wear.
Hand-held scanners from SICK provide fast, flexible code reading capabilities for a wide range of applications. Unlike manual solutions, hand-held scanners make it possible to automatically detect data at high speeds - with nearly no errors. They are ergonomically designed, speed up processes and help eliminate sources of error.
