Vitronic Machine Vision has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract to automate the manual processing of flats and small parcels from a large parcel and post customer.

Under the terms of the contract, Vitronic Machine Vision will provide over 2,000 VicamSnap! camera units in early 2014 to the customer's facilities throughout the United States.

The camera systems will provide scanning and barcode decoding for all customer specific linear and 2-dimensional codes, provide image capture and archiving routines, and allow the customer to provide additional tracking capabilities throughout their network. The VicamSnap! solution replaces a previous multi-step process, and will allow faster manual sorting and throughput efficiency along with providing improved tracking visibility.

'We are pleased to continue our relationship and this program continuation is a direct result of a successful roll out in 2013’ stated Michael Schindler, Vitronic Machine Vision's president of North American operations. ‘Our solution allows our customers to take advantage of the latest innovative technology in the market. There is no product like the VicamSnap! in the market today and we are proud of our successes.'

The VicamSnap! is a compact, lightweight camera based solution. It is equipped with white illumination which allows for the reading and decoding of coloured barcodes and provides more effective reading of damaged or poorly printed barcodes on coloured backgrounds. The Vitronic VicamSnap! provides a 12 x 10 inch width of field and 16 inch depth of field (read area 310 x 260 x 300mm) to allow operators to capture all 1D and 2D barcodes on parcels, flats and boxes.
