(openPR) - After performing extensive comparison tests, the French logistics company Chronopost decided in favor of the camera-based identification technology from Vitronic. In its new distribution center in Chilly-Mazarin/France, up to 30,000 packages per hour are sorted at during peak times.|
In total two tilt-tray sorters each use two VIPAC systems. Five cameras per system automatically read barcodes and two-dimensional codes (Datamatrix and PDF417) on five sides of the package at conveyor speeds of 2.5m/s (490fpm). This is possible thanks to the – amongst other factors – very fast and dynamic focusing of the high-speed line scan camera VICAMssi which adapts itself in real time to any package orientation. In addition, Chronopost has also implemented the user-friendly archiving system. It is used for analysis of the NoReads and offers the possibility for optimization of the reading rates.
Chronopost International is a subsidiary of the French La Poste Group and operates across Europe as an express service provider. The new hub in Chilly-Mazarin is to become the main distribution centre in France. Increasingly more logistics centres are being fitted with the most up-to-date technology. The identification systems from Vitronic contribute substantially to an increased level of automation.
