Cognex, in industrial machine vision, introduces the DataMan 280 series, fixed-mount barcode readers. The DataMan 280 is engineered to solve a broad range of ID applications, including tough 1D, 2D, and Direct Part Mark (DPM) code applications in manufacturing and logistics.

“Cognex specializes in decoding the most difficult to read barcodes at the highest speed and accuracy,” said Carl Gerst, Cognex’s executive vice-president of Products and Platforms. “Optimized with our latest patented decoding algorithms, the DataMan 280 combines advanced technology from Cognex’s premium ID platforms into a compact and cost-effective housing.”

The DataMan 280 features a high-resolution sensor combined with a dynamic image formation system to improve code handling and coverage. This technology, along with connectivity options for today’s Industry 4.0 manufacturing needs, allows users to read complex barcodes reliably while improving overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and throughput.

DataMan 280 is ideal for reading codes on automotive and medical device parts, bottles and packages, pallets, and presentation scanning. Combined with Cognex Edge Intelligence (EI), it provides advanced Industry 4.0 features like easy web browser connectivity, device management, and performance monitoring. The modular hardware and software can be configured to solve any application and futureproof your investment.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
