Warehousing, distribution and fulfilment centres and manufacturing shop floor environments are undergoing a substantial transformation to meet the changing expectations of today’s consumers.
Facing higher volumes, faster fulfilment expectations and continued labour shortage issues, organisations need to modernise their operations to keep pace. Critical to these efforts are machine vision and industrial scanning solutions that support a variety of applications including high speed sortation, inspection, verification and trace and trace solutions.
To address this topic, Zebra Technologies has published a whitepaper: Fixed Industrial Scanning and Machine Vision. Zebra entered the industrial scanning and machine vision markets in 2021 with the launch of four industrial scanners and three smart cameras, addressing a key gap in its portfolio.
Zebra buttressed its new lines with simultaneous acquisitions of Fetch Robotics and Adaptive Vision, and expansion of its PartnerConnect channel network, all building upon its existing offerings for enterprise asset management. As the newest player in this field, Zebra has catapulted itself into a strong standing among machine vision and industrial barcode scanning vendors.
