Hands Free Barcode Scanning
As the scanning of barcodes, both 1D and 2D, is becoming present in every aspect of the manufacturing, warehouse and logistics processes, so the barcode scanner has evolved to make it easier for the worker to carry out both the industrial or logistics task and capture the task's data by scanning barcodes. Scanners have changed from corded to wireless to allow operator freedom, but the simple human effort to deal with a hand held device in the form of a barcode scanner, while doing the job, causes some problems that until now have not been addressed.
Until now barcode scanners have needed to be carried around and held in a particular way to allow barcodes to be scanned. This disables the worker from any sort of product handling that needs two hands and and makes it awkward to carry out high speed tasks.
Wearable barcode scanners have been around for some years, but early models are heavy and clumsy to use.
Now there is a new barcode scanner from ProGlove, which has been specifically designed to solve all of these issues. Worn as a full or half glove (made to a proper industrial spec) the ProGlove is super light and easy for the operator to use and the battery lasts 15 hours - (about 6000 scans)
Major businesses are already using ProGlove, in fact almost every European car manufacturer uses ProGlove including BMW and VW Group. Also used in retail, warehouse and logistics. See a Video success story from Volkswagen here
