Improve your barcode scanning procedures with in-motion systems from AP Datweigh, Inc.

In the fast-paced world of manufacturing and logistics, efficiency is crucial. One technology that has helped manufacturers handle their inventory and streamline operations is barcode scanning. Barcode scanning is not only about accuracy but also speed and efficiency. In-motion barcode scanning is a game-changer in improving speeds and ensuring accurate scanning of all inbound and outbound products. The experts at AP Dataweigh, Inc. can advise you on the best barcode scanning systems for your business and ensure that you receive high-quality results. 

Avoid Slowdowns on Conveyor Systems

By adding modern, efficient scanners to your conveyor belt system, you ensure that every side of the package is scanned so the system can collect the information it needs, no matter where the label is placed. Each package only needs to be sent down the line once, instead of re-circulating through the conveyor and re-oriented by an operator. This helps speed up items on your production line and reduces your need for labor that fixes machine errors.

Real-Time Data Capture

Traditional barcode scanning methods often require manual data entry or a stationary scanner, slowing the workflow. On the other hand, in-motion barcode scanning allows for real-time data capture as items move along the production line or through the warehouse. This instantaneous data retrieval provides up-to-the-minute information on inventory levels, order status, and more, enabling better decision-making and reducing the risk of errors.

Accelerated Inventory Management

Efficient barcode scanning in motion drastically accelerates inventory management. Workers no longer need to stop and scan each item individually. Instead, the scanner can read multiple barcodes simultaneously as products pass the scanning point. This saves time and reduces the chances of overlooking items or making data entry errors, ensuring that your inventory records remain accurate and up to date.

Enhanced Order Fulfillment

For businesses involved in order fulfillment and shipping, in-motion barcode scanning can significantly improve the speed and accuracy of this critical process. Scanning items as they move along the conveyor belt ensures that the right products are packed into the right orders, minimizing shipping errors and reducing the need for costly returns and refunds. This leads to happier customers and a stronger reputation for your business.


As your business grows, in-motion barcode scanning from AP Dataweigh, Inc. can easily scale with it. Whether you’re handling a small inventory or managing a massive warehouse, this technology can adapt to your changing needs. Adding more scanners or expanding your scanning capabilities is a straightforward process, ensuring your production efficiency improves as your business expands.
