Metrologic Instruments, Inc., providers of optical image capture and processing solutions that design, manufacture and market sophisticated imaging and scanning solutions for a variety of applications, today announced the signing of an agreement for an airport baggage handling/ security scanning tunnel system with The Second Research Institute of Civil Air Administration of China (CASRI).
A total of four systems, each consisting of two 6-sided scanning tunnels will be installed at the airports servicing the cities of Chengdu and Chongqing. In 2001, the CASRI commissioned Metrologic to supply a solution for scanning the bar code on each piece of luggage that is processed through an automated baggage handling/security system. Metrologic delivered the scanning solution and installed several systems at the Guiyang Airport and Shenzhen Airport.
Over the past few years, the needs of the CASRI have changed and Metrologic has been able to introduce newer technologies. The result is an aggressive and reliable scanning system utilizing a combination of HoloTrak, laser-based scanners and iQ180, camera and vision-based scanners.
Metrologic designs, manufactures and markets bar code scanning and high-speed automated data capture systems solutions using laser, holographic and vision-based technologies. Metrologic offers expertise in 1D and 2D bar code reading, portable data collection, optical character recognition, image lift, and parcel dimensioning and singulation detection for customers in retail, commercial, manufacturing, transportation and logistics, and postal and parcel delivery industries. In addition to its line of bar code scanning and vision system equipment, the company also provides laser beam delivery and control systems to semi-conductor and fiber optic manufacturers, as well as a variety of sophisticated optical systems.
