Datalogic Tracking for Global Electronics Giant
Reader-tracking system module.
Bologna, Italy — Datalogic is providing a flexible track-and-trace solution, involving almost 700 Datalogic Matrix 210 2D barcode readers, to a major international manufacturer of electronics products. The barcode readers are being used for traceability of electronics components involved in SMT


Headquartered in Japan and with branches around the world, the electronics giant and key equipment vendor for the world's biggest electronics manufacturing service (EMS) providers, required a specialist solution for component identification and traceability. This was crucial for the electronics company to provide its own clients — original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and original design manufacturers (ODMs) in the global electronics industry — with equipment for PCB manufacturing able to cope with varied electronics components and fluctuating production volumes. Component identification in the PCB manufacturing process involves several kinds of 1D and 2D bar codes that need be identified and have their data collected, while electronics component traceability helps reduce recall exposure, as well as improve product quality and line efficiency.

In order to meet these requirements, the electronics manufacturer has now deployed 700 of the Datalogic Matrix 210 2D barcode readers in its Chinese plant for a number of specified needs.

Requirements being met include 1D and 2D bar code reading capability — up to 5mil (0.127mm) wide FOV at a close distance for compactness and optimal installation.

Connectivity is also a plus, allowing various interfaces such as Ethernet, USB A/B and RS-232, as well as providing ease of installation and operational ability in confined spaces.
