SIC Marking can provide hand-held vision solutions when the vision system isn't fully integrated on the production line. Flexible, and easy to use, these portable 2D code readers are more typically used in job shop manufacturing operations.
Traceability is not only used on production lines, but also in environments where marking stations are set up and part handling is not automated, or when part shapes vary greatly in size.
Hand-held readers are used more and more in job shop manufacturing operations, quality control test stations, and even in logistics areas. The advantage of this solution is its versatility. The equipment is mobile and can be supplied in a wireless configuration for situations where part size or position creates access issues.
