The continuous tracking of parts and products with the aid of a code is of increasing importance in industrial processes. Parts are generally labelled with one-dimensional barcodes or two-dimensional data matrix codes, which are either printed or applied using dot-peen or laser marking technology (direct marking). Our VISOR® Code Readers reliably read all industry standard code types.
The VISOR® Code Reader accurately reads all industry standard code types. With the aid of different lenses and lighting options, it is even possible to reliably interpret extremely small printed codes or codes that are marked on problematic backgrounds (curved, reflective or rough).

Shampoo bottles can be sorted according to the color of the lid. The versatile color sensor FT 55-CM in compact design allows a reliable color detection even on shiny surfaces, in case of color variations or varying distances. A simultaneous distance measurement enables the color brightness to be determined independently of the object distance.

Using so-called multishot technology, the VISOR® Allround offers unique object illumination, which renders height differences visible. Engraved or raised lettering on directly marked objects can therefore be reliably read thanks to the combined functions of the VISOR® Object and Code Reader.

The following application examples show you the possible uses of our products in practice.
Each component installed in a battery pack usually has a directly marked code on it. Before the components are installed in the housing bottom part, this code must be read out and transmitted to the higher-level control system for subsequent tracking.
Vehicle windows must be identified during production and mounting processes to avoid mix-ups with similar windows. The aim of the application is that a window is clearly identified by means of a DOT code.
Test tubes have DMCs measuring 3 x 3mm in size with 14 x 14 modules. The aim of the application is to clearly identify the content of test tubes via a DMC to avoid mix-ups.
In order to guarantee the traceability of the components installed in a battery pack, the codes on the delivery notes attached to the transport boxes are read with a sensor. The contents can consist of one-dimensional barcodes, two-dimensional data matrix codes or plain text.
Throughout the production process, a large quantity of data is generated that has to be monitored and checked. The operator must be able to consult, manage and evaluate this data easily in order to identify and implement any necessary modifications to the process.
