Reading between the lines: Bar code basics

Modern automated warehouses, conveyor belts and manufacturing facilities increasingly require the implementation of identification systems. One of the main requirements of the production process is the link between the information and the material flow. Thus, objects can be identified in real-time locations, which results in increased flexibility in every phase of the work process.

Optical identification represents approximately 75% of all identification systems currently in use. Thanks to bar codes, printed data can be easily and automatically
read by means of a reading device. Bar code applications can be found in all fields of industry, retail, in the public sector and in everyday life.
