China Post recently awarded a contract to Accu-Sort Systems for several multi-sided AV6010 camera barcode scanner tunnels. China Post selected Accu-Sort's AV6010 as part of a major technology upgrade, in addition to implementing it at newer facilities that will be coming on line later in the year. Installation was completed at multiple facilities in China, including Guangzhou, Taiyuan, Suzhou, and Beijing.
The investment in automated sortation equipment will further enhance China Post's reputation for fast, accurate parcel processing, and enable it to meet the needs of a growing global economy that depends on quality logistics.
China Post has a long history with Accu-Sort. The first CCD bar-code scanners used at China Post were from Accu-Sort, and up to today, all its CCD scanners are from Accu-Sort. The new AV6010 is a long-range, high-speed camera barcode scanner that reads 1D and 2D symbologies. It also supports OCR, video coding applications and certified dimensioning. It is designed for fast installation and simple networking: A complete scanning tunnel can be installed and provisioned in a single day.
Dai Guobin, general manager at China Post, has used Accu-Sort equipment for 10 years, and he already has a positive impression of the latest technology. Not only were all four locations up and running the day of installation, Dai credits the A6010 with a higher read rate, less need for maintenance, and high reliability. "I believe Accu-Sort products meet challenging requirements because the company has a tradition of continuous innovation based on customer needs," he said.
Managers like Dai appreciate the advances in technology that the AV6010 barcode camera scanner provides. These advanced features are designed to increase reliability and include a Linux-based operating system, flash memory storage of system parameters, a dust-free cooling system, and field-replaceable modules that minimise downtime.
Dai is satisfied with his recent experience with Accu-Sort. "Accu-Sort has very experienced technical staff that install systems quickly and give good service," he said. "When a problem does occur, local technical staff always respond quickly and give SPEC and China Post its highest priority."
