Improve Warehouse Efficiency with Honeywell’s 8670 Wireless Ring Scanner

Posted September 21, 2016

The Honeywell 8670 Wireless Ring Scanner brings a lot of versatility to the mobile warehouse worker. It’s 1D and 2D scanning performance, fast decoding, and ability to read poor-quality or damaged barcodes make it the best in the industry. A few things to highlight a few things about the Honeywell 8670.

  • Lower profile ring scanner. The Honeywell 8670 ring scanner has a much lower profile than the Zebra RS507.  In other words, it sits lower on your finger.  This is important because with this device you’ll be doing lots of piece picks, case picks, etc.  With a lower profile ring scanner you are much less likely to hit the scanner on the bin/racking when reaching into a bin/racking to pick something. Rack hits = frustrated operator, progress disruption, damaged scanner.
  • No ring spin! The scanner button on the Honeywell 8670 does not sit below the finger.  So when you pick up a box the scanner stays put.   If the button sits below your finger the scanner will spin every time you pick up a box.  So you’ll have to readjust your scanner after every pick. Life with a scanner that does not take this into account turns a 2 step process into a 3 step process.
    • Step 1: Scan item.
    • Step 2: Pick up box.
    • Step 3: Re-adjust ring scanner.
  • Practice putting the ring scanner on until you’ve got it down to one smooth motion.  This also applies to the wearable computer.

First impressions go a long way, and if a your workers continue to fumble with the scanner trying to put it on…well….then it diminishes the productivity that you are trying to capture in your business.
