Customers expect maximum flexibility from the CEP service provider of their choice and the ability to handle packages of varying sizes, shapes, and materials. This means that the number and complexity of the parameters to be considered in the identification process are on the rise. The different types of code are standardized, but they must be found and read on items in an increasingly complex package stream. The quality of labels is determined by numerous factors, such as printer performance, paper, labeling process, handling, abrasion, or soiling. Many of these factors are beyond the direct control of CEP service providers – yet their identification systems have to deal with them. SICK provides the right solution for all requirements.
