The current deployment at Zenni in Novato, California, showcased the function of Cognex’s DataMan barcode readers in OSARO’s system, which includes a FANUC M-10 Collection robotic arm powered by OSARO SightWorks imaginative and prescient and management system for robots, a Pregis Sharp automated bagging machine, Cognex readers, and Framos cameras to information the robotic. NPSG World constructed the bodily infrastructure in collaboration with OSARO’s technical workforce.

The system demonstrated compelling ROI for one of many world’s high eyeglass retailers by fixing an ongoing problem. Zenni’s signature translucent blue eyeglass circumstances had stymied scanners from a number of OEMs that had been unable to learn barcodes by the plastic circumstances. OSARO vetted a number of suppliers earlier than choosing Cognex DataMan readers, which achieved 99% accuracy and skim charges whereas rising throughput by 80%.

Lighting performs an essential function in barcode studying options and helps to extend learn charges. Cognex’s high-intensity LED lighting — a high-powered built-in torch (HPIT) — was instrumental within the capability to learn barcodes by Zenni’s eyewear circumstances.
