The new SSI Order Verifier from SSI Schaefer includes fully automated, item-by-item checks and documentation for shipments, which helps companies ensure that their goods are shipped accurately and with perfect documentation. The Order Verifier takes advantage of recent developments in image processing and mechanics so it can automatically count, identify, and document items. In addition, the module for these automated monitoring processes satisfies requirements for track and trace and forms the basis for extensive shipping documentation and consistent documentary evidence of origin needed for pharmaceutical and other applications.
The module can either be operated as a standalone station or incorporated into the conveyor technology immediately following order picking. The items picked into containers for an order are emptied into the checking station and automatically separated on a conveyor belt. The system then records the barcodes of the individual parts. Any products without barcodes are captured photographically at a throughput rate of up to 6,000 items an hour.
The industrial image-processing technology allows the volume, content, expiration date, and counterfeit indicator of all items to be checked. Information technology compares the information recorded with the corresponding order details. Once approved, the station puts the order back together, and transfers it to a load carrier. The recorded item data and photos are saved to the IT system and stored for documentation purposes so that the customer can be provided with accurate details of the shipment at any time.
