Digitize to Improve: Intelligent, Vision-Based Systems Ensure Track and Trace Success


The key to success in logistics operations ultimately comes down to moving the right items to the right customers quickly and efficiently. However, with an ever-changing industry, ecommerce success can be a challenge. With industry trends like smaller, more frequent orders and an increase in polybags and irregular-shaped packages, this drives a need for smart, digitized sorting and tracking. SICK’s intelligent, vision-based sortation and tracking systems is one way to increase productivity and enable greater control of your production and distribution processes.

SICK is a global provider of intelligent industrial sensors, including vision-based bar code readers that capture and digitize information to help optimize production, especially for flow of products on conveyors, sorters, and automated storage systems. In addition, SICK has a solution for detecting irregularly-shaped objects, like polybags, on conveyors so you can ensure your operations remain productive.

Our intelligent vision and sensing portfolio addresses multiple functions, including:

  • Investigating the cause of no-read events
  • Providing a visual record of package condition
  • Ensuring equipment is working correctly
  • Providing high-resolution images of labels and bar codes
  • Rapid identification of damaged goods or difficult to convey/handle products
  • Integrated dimensioning and weighing

Vision gives you that bigger, two-dimensional field of view that takes into account different variables that can impact being able to capture the information you need,”
