Bar code reading system

With the importance of the bar code system within the entire supply chain, PLF has developed a high performance scanning system for the identification and rejection of containers with incorrect bar codes.

The containers pass along the conveyor, where they are equally pitched for 360 degree scanning of the ladder bar code. If the code is correct (compared to the pre-programmed bar code), the container then continues to the next stage of packing. If the code is incorrect, the container is rejected with the PLF High Speed Reject System, for further inspection.

The purpose of the system is to ensure the correct product is in the correct container – verification at the beginning of the line reduces downtime at the end of the line ensuring that all containers are correct.
