Belintra introduces a new innovative and sustainable scanning solution for efficiently organizing the storage space for soft goods within a Kanban-FIFO approach.The OptiScanBan® concept increases efficiency in the restocking of goods.
It starts with the new OptiScanBan® label holders on which the status of the goods is changed from “available (green)” to “refill (red)” with a simple flip operation, which saves a lot of time compared to manual removal and turning of tickets in existing concepts. The label holders can be used universally, because they are compatible with all common baskets and modules on which they click firmly. They guarantee significantly fewer errors due to labels dropping or not being turned correctly. Moreover, they are provided with a label with a 2D barcode that allows for manual scanning or even further automation.
The automated scanning is made possible with the installation of one or more cameras per storage space, the OptiScanBan® software and a server to process the captured data. The cameras read the status of the OptiScanBan® label holders and are connected to the network via a POE (Power Over Ethernet) connection. The OptiScanBan® software analyzes the snapshots that the cameras take and recognizes the status of each article (the red and the green) and registers the latest status in the database after a successful scan. Through a link with Excel or the ERP system, the stock manager can provide the necessary instructions to ensure rapid restocking.
