Vitronic is to exhibit at Post Expo 2008, the three-day, world premier event for the postal, mailing and parcel industries, which takes place in London and begins on 30 September. Located on stand 1200, Vitronic will demonstrate a range of its camera-based package identification products and have its engineers ready to handle queries.
Post Expo is an annual event that attracts thousands of visitors from approximately 100 countries. It has rapidly grown over the years and now features nearly 250 exhibitors, which supply products such as cargo handling equipment, navigation systems and transit containers. Post Expo is an ideal forum for Vitronic to meet new customers and network with other companies for future contracts.
Vitronic will display its VIPAC parcel identification system at Post Expo. VIPAC operates over conveyors and sorters, and its high-resolution, line-scan cameras capture images of parcel labels. The system interprets these using advanced software and optical character recognition (OCR) techniques, allowing it to read barcodes, handwritten addresses and supplier numbers. The acquired data is used to sort parcels automatically at high speed. Together with videocoding, a facility that allows the manual input of unreadable labels, VIPAC achieves read rates approaching 100%.
Also on show will be VICAM-mobile, a handheld camera scanner used to scan goods that are normally difficult to process (e.g. awkwardly shaped items), and Volumec HS2s, an ingenious device that utilises lasers to calculate the volume of parcels. Volumec HS2s is fully compatible with VIPAC and affects the efficient utilisation of transit space in vehicles. A unique and pioneering product, it is the only automatic volume-measuring device certified for use over sorters.
Malcolm Smith, UK Sales Manger at Vitronic, is anticipating the event; “Post Expo is a valuable opportunity for us to present our products to an international audience, which will comprise key personnel from the postal, mailing and parcel industries. Last year our stand was very busy and we took a large number of enquiries. We hope for similar success at Post Expo 2008!”
