NATICK, MA—Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX) announced that a leading manufacturer of components for the aerospace industry has selected Cognex DataMan®handheld ID readers to speed order processing and error-proof part handling at its production facilities worldwide.
The manufacturer has purchased more than 100 of the new Cognex DataMan 8500 handheld readers, which will be used to scan ID codes marked on parts and on order sheets to verify that orders have been correctly processed, and to create a traceable path for each part throughout the supply chain. The powerful code-reading algorithms of the DataMan 8500 ensure reliable performance on eventhe most difficult 2D Data Matrix and 1D barcodes marked on virtually any surface, and variable-focus liquid lens technology makes it easy to read both very small 2D codes and longer barcodes with no manual adjustment to the lens. The DataMan 8000 series was introduced in August of this year.
The DataMan 8500 features Cognex 1DMax™ and 2DMax™ code reading algorithms, which offer the industry’s most advanced technology for reading both 1D and 2D codes regardless of size, quality, printing method or surface. It is also the only handheld ID reader that offers Industrial Ethernet communication and liquid lens technology.
