Cognex receives $4 million in orders
Cognex Corporation has received purchase orders totaling more than USD 4 million from a large parcel delivery customer.
The customer will use Cognex DataMan 300 barcode readers on automated sorting stations in its U.S. distribution centers. These readers are expected to be shipped by the end of 2013. Additional follow-on orders are expected in the future. “Cognex won this project after proving that our DataMan 300 ID reader provides a higher return on investment than other solutions,” said Carl Gerst, Cognex Vice President for ID Products. “DataMan can read even worn and very-hard-to read barcodes, which can be an issue with reusable trays used to transport items for sorting. DataMan’s nearly perfect read rates and ability to keep up with high-speed conveyors ensures the fastest and most reliable package throughput for the customer.”
