In the future, one of Chinas largest providers of express logistics and its integrators will speed up their logistic processes by applying 600 special camera systems by VITRONIC. The line-scan cameras with autofocus will identify and sort parcels of any kind and size in several facilities in China. They are also able to detect the volume of the shipments and will provide valuable data.
“Fast and reliable processing of parcels is essential for our customer’s seamless same-day delivery and shipment tracking in real time”, stresses WeiTao WANG, CEO VITRONIC Machine Vision (Shanghai) Co. Ltd.
“Our camera systems will also generate additional data that will allow them to expand their services further”, he adds.
The provided data will enable the logistics provider to offer services in front-end processes such as warehousing management, big data analysis, and settlement management.
High Speed, High Efficiency, High Read Rate
The new camera systems operate at high speed of up to 2.7 m/s, require limited space for installations and provide a high read rate. In tests, VITRONIC’s camera systems clearly outperformed local systems based on matrix cameras.
"Line-scan cameras with autofocus are the global standard in the logistics industry. There are only three companies worldwide that have mastered this technology – we are the only company that has more than 35 years experience in code reading with vision systems”, stresses WeiTao WANG.
Together with the local partner Huayan, VITRONIC will deploy the camera systems in 2021. With this new large-scale project, VITRONIC is expanding its business in China – and its position as a leading provider of line-scan camera solutions for the CEP sector.
