Zebra Technologies has launched a portfolio of solutions that enable track and trace capabilities and quality inspection of manufacturing work in process. Zebra’s suite of machine vision smart cameras and fixed industrial scanners is unlocked by Zebra Aurora (shown), a unified software platform that can set up, deploy and run both cameras and scanners.

Leveraging the same ultra-rugged stationary hardware, Zebra’s fixed industrial scanners (FIS) and machine vision (MV) smart cameras can inspect production lines and product movement processes, helping improve quality in manufacturing, warehouse and logistics environments. As part of its move into the FIS and MV markets, Zebra has acquired Adaptive Vision, a provider of graphical MV software for manufacturing and other industries.

Zebra’s flexible new portfolio includes seven fixed data capture products featuring a unique set of FIS and/or MV capabilities. Businesses can choose the products that meet their needs today and upgrade at any time to add support for new barcode symbologies, increased scanning speeds, or advanced machine vision tools via the purchase of a software license.

The fixed industrial scanners improve track and trace capabilities throughout the supply chain with decoding of every part and package moving through production, storage and fulfillment. Capable of reading 1D/2D barcodes, direct part marks (DPM) and optical character recognition (OCR) text, Zebra’s fixed industrial scanners help improve productivity and automate the movement of goods, enhancing the efficiency of warehouse, shipping and returns processes. Zebra’s MV smart cameras are suitable for automating quality inspections in a variety of discrete manufacturing processes, reducing defects as well as validating assembly and tracking information to improve productivity and quality.
