Accu-Sort to Present Bar Code System Solutions at ProMat 2011

New bar code systems and capabilities increase accuracy and reduce cost

PHILADELPHIA, PA - Accu-Sort® Systems, Inc. announced that it will present several automated bar code system solutions that increase accuracy and reduce cost during the ProMat Show at McCormick Place in Chicago, March 21-24 (booth #2047). The solutions include reliable mid-range laser bar code scanning, affordable print-and-apply labeling, and long-range 2D camera bar code scanning with integrated dimensioning, and side-by-side package detection.

Accu-Sort has chosen ProMat to debut the first laser bar code scanner in its next-generation AccuLazr(TM) line, the AL5010, a scanner that offers exceptional mid-range performance and communication flexibility with a low total cost of ownership. Thanks to the innovative AccuLazr hardware and software platforms, the AL5010 laser bar code scanner is highly accurate, compact, and versatile. Its MTBF rating makes it one of the most reliable scanners in its class. The scanner provides built-in serial ports as well as Ethernet TCP/IP and Ethernet/IP communications. Basic and enhanced interface modules are available for ease of installation and maintenance. Although AL5010 has a small footprint, it provides a scan range in excess of 40-inches, allowing it to be used in applications where more expensive scanners are too costly or too bulky.

Accu-Sort will also discuss automated label print and apply systems during ProMat. At 10:30 am Monday, March 21, in Theater E, Accu-Sort will give a seminar titled "Three Ways to Grow Your Distribution Center Using an Affordable Print and Apply System." Accu-Sort's FAST Label® system helps distribution centers expand capacity without adding labor, while reducing costs by increasing accuracy.

Other solutions to improve operations involve capabilities beyond bar code scanning. Accu-Sort staff will discuss how options for the AccuVision® AV6010 long-range camera bar code scanner provide integrated, certified dimensioning and side-by-side package detection. These capabilities build on the best-in-class performance of the AV6010 scanner to improve efficiency, reclaim costs, and eliminate costly sort errors.
