Zebra’s 3600 Series Sets a New Standard in Rugged Barcode Scanners

Posted May 23, 2016

When it comes to capturing bar codes in rugged environments like the warehouse or manufacturing plant floor, every second counts—speed and accuracy is directly related to workforce productivity, throughput, and the quality of products and customer service.  Zebra’s New 3600 Ultra-Rugged Scanner Series is the industry’s first ultra-rugged line of corded and cordless industrial handheld scanners that set new benchmarks for rugged design, scanning performance and manageability.  The result is unstoppable performance—faster-and-farther-than-ever data capture, with unprecedented scanner uptime and a low total cost of ownership.

Ultra-Rugged Design
Just how rugged is the 3600 Ultra-Rugged Series?  When it comes to industrial strength, nobody does it better.  In fact, the 3600 Series offers the most indestructible design available today, with the highest drop, tumble and sealing specifications for comparable devices.  All scanners in this family offer an 8 ft. 2.4 m drop specification that is 23 percent more durable than any other scanner in this class.  These scanners continue to operate reliably—even after 5,000 tumbles.  Also, only the 3600 family offers IP67 sealing as well as two sealing ratings—IP67 plus IP65—making it dust-tight and waterproof.

Superior Performance
When it comes to scanning, the 3600 Series simply shines.  Built to out-class its competition in scanning performance, users get advanced scanning technology that enables the first-time every time capture of bar codes faster, farther and in practically any condition—under shrink wrap or damaged, dirty or poorly printed.  With six models to choose from, there is a 3600 model designed to meet the specific scanning needs in a warehouse or manufacturing plant.

Direct Part Marking (DPM) Explained

Posted April 4, 2016

DPM-Example-2While most barcodes you come across are printed on a label or paper-packaging of a product, in the manufacturing world and work-in-process applications many parts or components need to be marked with a barcode directly. Direct Part Marking is a process that  allows  users to mark a barcode directly on an item instead of printing the barcode on a label.

There are 3 main technologies available for DPM:  laser or chemical etching, dot peening  and ink jet printing. Each of these has specific  advantages  and disadvantages  in terms  of durability, cost and ease of reading.   The main advantages  of codes with  DPM technology are that  the code is permanently marked  on a surface and will  survive  for a long  time  (ideally  forever), regardless  of the  stress the part is passing  through during its’ life cycle. The main  reasons to choose codes with  DPM technology are:

  • Items that need to pass through harsh testing processes  (chemicals  agents, thermal cycles, oil, moisture, etc.)
  • Items that need to  be tracked  during  their  entire life cycle
  • Very small items (difficult to label)

DPM technology was first  adopted  mainly  by the automotive and general mechanical industries. Currently, the popularity of codes using  DPM technology has spread into  different sectors  including electronics, chemicals  and healthcare  industries.

White Paper: The Internet of Things

Posted August 31, 2015

zebrbcilogoWhat is it?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the coming connectivity of everything you own, everything you see. No longer will access to the internet be limited to single point interfaces like your phone or computer, or single-point data sources like web pages or servers. Nor will it be limited to you! Everything you see can, and someday will, be interconnected and sharing data: your tv, your refrigerator, your home, your car, the roads you drive on, the building you work in, the package you’re delivering…everything.

So far, the Internet of Things has been most closely associated with machine-to-machine (M2M) communication in manufacturing and power, oil and gas utilities. Products built with M2M communication capabilities are often referred to as being smart.
