The Challenge Faced
Performance and accuracy in decoding product barcodes can sometimes become a major bottleneck for manufacturing firms. Such issues might become more prominent when using unstable open-source solutions.
ADLINK faced a similar challenge. Their IPC production line required a barcode decoding solution to accurately scan 1D, 2D, and DataMatrix codes on product boxes. The primary objective was to enable efficient tracking and troubleshooting by associating each product's barcode with an image of the box.
The existing open-source SDKs, such as ZXing and ZBar, failed to meet ADLINK's stability and performance requirements. The limitations of these solutions became more pronounced when working with industrial cameras placed 30-40 cm above the scanning area, leading to blurred images and unreliable barcode scanning.
ADLINK discovered Dynamsoft's Barcode Reader SDK while searching for an alternative solution to their existing open source solution. Intrigued by the positive customer reviews and the SDK's ability to scan barcodes accurately in various environments, they decided to give it a try.
They downloaded the trial version and quickly recognized the superiority of Dynamsoft's SDK in terms of stability, speed, and accuracy. The default settings of the Barcode Reader SDK proved highly effective in their environment, allowing for quick and precise barcode scanning.
By adopting Dynamsoft's Barcode Reader SDK, ADLINK achieved several significant benefits.
Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK provided robust and stable barcode decoding capabilities, eliminating the challenges faced with open-source solutions. ADLINK no longer experienced issues related to blurry images or varying distances between the camera and the scanning area.
The SDK's fast and accurate barcode scanning enabled ADLINK to streamline its production line. Operators could swiftly scan barcodes, associate them with product images, and save the data for tracking and troubleshooting purposes.
Dynamsoft's Barcode Reader SDK offered ADLINK a low-cost yet effective solution, delivering a high return on investment. The reduced development time and increased efficiency resulted in cost savings and improved overall productivity.
Although ADLINK did not require extensive support during the implementation phase, they appreciated Dynamsoft's responsive customer support team, which promptly addressed their inquiries and ensured a smooth transition to the new SDK.
