pallet scanning system with cameras

Prevent shipping errors and maximize scanning productivity with a drive-thru solution for touchless, rapid pallet tracking with included image capture.

Artemis Vision's RaPTr (Rapid Pallet Tracker) barcode scanning technology integrates with your shipping operations to automatically scan pallet ID labels with built-in reporting and photos, boosting both scanning speed and accuracy.

Reduce Shipping Errors

Immediate feedback at dock doors signals whether product is going on the right truck. Real-time record keeping enables track-and-trace for pallets to prevent mis-shipments, increase shipping efficiency, improve OTIF compliance, and create tighter inventory control.

Photo Documentation History

Each scan contains timestamped photo documentation to aid in warehouse location history and successfully contest and prevent freight damage claims.

Keep It Simple

A relatively simple automation investment that's compatible with more complex automation while also flexible and customizable for long-term change. Compact system footprint and quick installation, with flexible mounting scenarios to fit your existing layout. Low maintenance and simple to use. Simple, standard cables. Integrates with any major WMS system.

How It Works

RaPTr is a camera-based barcode scanning solution for warehouses that can be used as a drive-thru scanner. A compact unit with camera(s), server, and included software automatically scan barcode labels passing through warehouse dock doors or other checkpoints. Touchless scanning reads barcodes in motion, making dismounting from or even stopping forklifts unnecessary. The technology is a more efficient, less expensive alternative to RFID pallet tracking systems, with the extra benefit of photo documentation.

All scans are timestamped with image capture and instantaneously recorded in the system for scanning visibility and verification. Search and retrieve data through an included web-based dashboard and reporting tool.

While being ruggedly built for industrial environments, the system's small footprint and its simplicity allow for quick installation and flexible mounting scenarios (mount next to dock doors, to portals, to walls or unistrut, overhead, etc.). RaPTr optionally integrates with your existing WMS or ERP through interfaces including SAP Gateway API, REST API, Stored Procedure, custom C# plug-in, and basic CSV/XML.

A Challenge Resolved

Manually scanning with handhelds in the warehouse introduces human error and profit loss because it is slow, labor-intensive, and prone to missed scans and mis-routed pallets. Our barcode scanning system was designed for outbound pallet scanning but can be used at any logistics checkpoint for large field of view barcode scanning.

In the case of a client who uses returnable crates, RaPTr has proven indispensable for recovering and billing while saving personnel time. RaPTr is used for automated scanning and reporting for tracking new product as it moves from the production floor into the warehouse. Other customers use in cross-docking for verifying content in supplier shipments before they are forwarded to the manufacturing facility, allowing errors to be caught before the production line. Others use to catch labeling mistakes, such as mismatched content. Some have integrated RaPTr with AGVs and boom gates for a fully automated solution. 

In all scenarios, warehouse operations become more efficient. Personnel time spent manually scanning is freed for elsewhere. Operators receive clear and immediate feedback that product is dispatched correctly. Records are easily retrieved to confirm shipments have been invoiced accurately. Shipments can be turned faster, with the accuracy and data needed to avoid OTIF, OS&D, and other compliance fees.

  • Use existing barcode labels instead of expensive RFID tags.
  • Retrieve timestamped scanning data with photographic proof.
  • Improve forklift safety by eliminating need to mount/dismount to scan and allowing drivers to keep both hands operating the vehicle and eyes ahead.
  • Enable better inventory control and visibility to reach and maintain FTZ warehouse requirements.
  • RaPTr is the fastest large area scanner on the market (scan area of 1m x 1m or larger).
"The Artemis Vision system provides data and visual evidence of what is happening on our shipping dock. This enables us to know the status of our inventory and to troubleshoot any missing or damaged shipments with our carriers and customers. In the end, we have better control over our assets and more satisfied customers."
