Project-specific system construction and extensive diagnostic possibilities make the SICK bar code tunnel a highly available solution for airport luggage identification.
The Singapore-based company Pteris Global Ltd., an international logistics systems supplier, has fitted out more than 150 airports worldwide with solutions for a range of tasks including flight luggage, air freight, in-flight-catering and express mail. The company enjoys an especially good reputation for its effective and high-availability luggage conveyor and sorting systems. With a constant effort to supply its customers with technically high-quality, cost-effective and reliable solutions, Pteris Global is always interested in innovations that will further improve system availability. That is why Pteris Global is looking for an automatic flight luggage identification solution whose intelligent system design and comprehensive, individually-configurable diagnostic functionality would further improve scanning reliability and availability. As a world's leading supplier, having installed more than 2,000 systems, SICK is able to contribute the right product and service portfolio for the solution.
SICK bar code reader tunnels ensure reliable luggage identification and routing
The increasingly high performance standards of Pteris Global are satisfied by the SICK bar code reader tunnel (ALIS400). The scanning tunnels are complete solutions. Each one consists of a supporting frame on which bar code readers with integrated decoding technology are installed, together with a local controller and system control interface. The patented decoding algorithm ensures that even damaged, low-contrast and partially concealed codes can be read accurately. A remote diagnosis tool (RDT400) in the system solution records and checks all the scanning results and monitors the operational state of the system, as well as all the individual components. Thanks to intelligent mounting solutions and the parameter memory in the connection plug, device replacement takes only a few minutes. What is more, the overall scanner configuration is designed in such a way that if one bar code scanner fails, the tunnel's read rate will be impaired by less than 1 %.
