Scanning & Mobility
The world of barcode scanning has changed dramatically in the past few years. With Microsoft announcing the end-of-life for Windows Mobile to the increased use of Tablets and Wearable barcode scanners, and the advent of new applications outside the 4 walls, the choices have multiplied.
Dynamic Systems can help you sort through your options based on your use case, environment and preferred price point. We carry only the best, so you can be assured your barcode scanning equipment will last for years to come.
This category that has exploded with choices from light, small devices to new ergonomic designs, to rugged Android mobile computers and mobile scanners designed to be used in freezers.
Zebra Technologies has announced a new line of rugged tablets, using Windows 10 or Android. They come with an embedded barcode scanner and offer options such as docking stations and protective cases.
If your workers need both hands for picking and put-away, consider a wearable. These devices vary from a ring-scanner worn on a finger, to a full wearable mobile computer that is attached to your worker’s arm.
Corded And Cordless Barcode Scanners
This technology has improved in speed of scan and ruggedness. There are many versions of these devices; we can help you choose the right one for your environment, scan requirements and preferred price point.
Dynamic Systems Inc. represents the top barcode printer manufacturers in the industry including Zebra, Honeywell, and Sato. We’ll help identify the best printer for you, from low duty-cycle printing for smaller businesses or retail environments to ultra-rugged high duty-cycle printers for harsh environments and 24×7 printing.
Desktop And Tabletop Printers
Low Duty-Cycle Label Printing – Low Duty-cycle Printers are designed for on-demand printing or for volumes under 1,000 labels per day. These printers have a smaller footprint and use up to 4” wide labels.
Mid Duty-Cycle Label Printing – Mid Duty-cycle Printers are the most common printer for Industrial applications. They work well in an 8-10 hour day with intermittent batch or on-demand printing. Formats include 203dpi, 300dpi and 600dpi resolutions, and 4”wide to 6”wide.
High Volume Label Printing – Companies that need High Volume Label Printing are those that work multiple shifts and need a printer that will withstand many hours of steady printing. The environment is typically a high-volume Distribution Center or Manufacturer, with outputs of thousands of labels per day.
If you need to print a label on the fly in the warehouse, cooler/freezer or on the road, a mobile printer may be the best option. Our recommendation would be Zebra Mobile printers. They use Bluetooth or WiFi connections, print up to 4” wide direct thermal labels, are protected against dust and moisture with an IP54 rating, and work in harsh environments, balancing the print speed to the ambient temperature.
Printer/Applicators are designed to be used in conjunction with conveyors. These devices print a barcode label and apply it automatically with no human intervention. Most Printer/Applicators require that the product being labeled is presented in a consistent location and orientation.
Printer/Applicators come in many technologies – wipe-on; tamp-on; blow-on; corner wrap; etc.
Because of the need for accuracy when applying labels automatically, there is a Discovery phase to the Printer/Applicator installation. It will include gathering information about the conveyor (speed, size, etc.) and the product being labeled.
Carts & Enclosures
In order to protect sensitive electronic gear such as barcode printers, we offer stainless steel enclosures to seal out water and dust, or to prevent freezing. We also offer power-supplied carts that can be removed from rooms before wash-down, and wheeled between production lines for workstation sharing.
