Wearable Glove Scanner in Glass Fabricating Industry for Tracking

Keeping track of architectural glass is tricky because most panes of glass look nearly identical to others, finding just the right piece can be laborious and time-consuming. Barcoding systems let the manufacturer uniquely identify each sheet by materials, size, or other key information without having to measure the individual sheet when moving or shipping it.

For high mobile workflows and intensive order picking or sorting of glass sheets that require frequent barcode scanning, the gun-shaped scanner and handheld industrial PDA may not be the best choice. Workers can lose 5 seconds every time when they pick up, scan, and set down a handheld scanner. In these cases the wearable barcode scanners such as ring-type, glove-type or glass-type scanners together with wearable data terminal can play an important role to improve efficiency.

The GS02 series glove scanners from Karls Tech provide professional solution for wearable barcode scanning and ware tracking in intensive order-picking under hard working conditions. The glove scanner are rugged and ergonomic, yet lightweight, comfortable to wear and easy to operate.

In glass fabricating industry each glass being cut into pieces needs to be tracked. The glove scanner provides an efficient way for 1D/2D barcode scanning in glass cutting workflow, while providing a protection for workers by wearing gloves

GS02 is a series of glove scanners by combining gloves with high-performance mini barcode scanners, and can be connected with a stationary or a wearable mobile data terminal via Bluetooth.

In collaboration with Hegla GmbH, the handling of glass panes can be managed by an Android based APP which employs GS02F glove scanner and LEMT smart watch. The APP provide a user-friendly interface for tracking and tracking. With hands-free solution, the glass glazier can handle glass panes with higher working efficiency.
