Product Traceability - the innovative way
2D Barcode System
Recent solutions from our sister company, Cobalt Systems, have aided the sorting and routing of mixed products by adding an internally used coding system. Now implemented with two separate technologies the Cobalt upstream device adds an identification to the product, which is recognised in final packing to ensure full traceability.
Using the Cobalt Sentinel technology -2D barcodes and UV marking have been used to identify the source of the product and then intelligently interpret the next stage of the process.
The coding enables pallets from mixed lines to be recognised - line specific data can then be identified and used to generate SSCC labels. The Cobalt Sentinel records all these actions to give full database traceability.
For traded units travelling down a combined conveyor, the Cobalt Sentinel UV technology module recognises the pack, then signals the conveyor changes needed for sorting and re-routing to the correct palletising station.
