Manufacturing Applications Overview

Global competition constantly places more pressure on manufacturing businesses to be more efficient and with 100% accuracy on their operations, from their supply chain management, through the build process, to shipping. CipherLab scanners and mobile computers give production line workers, supervisors, managers, and executives the tools they need - in the warehouse, on the production line, at quality control, and shipping.

Wireless LAN-enabled CipherLab mobile computers and wireless scanners with Bluetooth® technology allow warehouse workers to keep inventories continuously updated for accurate, efficient supply chain management and inventory turns. A range of scanning capabilities, from close-up reading of tiny labels to scanning distant pallets and cartons, reduce tracking and supply errors.

On the production line, handheld scanners at build stages keep production records accurate and managers constantly informed of productivity through the line. Mobile computers with wireless LAN technology allow supervisors to keep working as they move from their office to production stages checking on the day's progress.

In shipping, handheld scanners with Bluetooth® technology update shipping orders and manifests, eliminating hand-generated paperwork and accelerating more accurate finished goods shipments.
