Non-standard technologies

Our specialists have developed a scanning system and software that allows you to automatically read all the barcodes available on the product. The solution allowed scanning even small and dense barcodes with a density of 8 mil, reading codes from all sides (except the bottom) in an arbitrary orientation, as well as recognizing codes on products of arbitrary dimensions (from 50 x 10 x 10 mm to 600 x 400 x 300 mm).
