Solving Traceability. Generating Value. Driving Growth.
We help manufacturers and producers leverage their data.
Technologies and disciplines where CodeIT have unique expertise:
Business-critical and mission-critical applications. We provide complete, open, standard software solutions developed in-house. Our software solutions are designed to be adaptable to each client’s special needs using configuration rather than programming. If software does not meet your needs, we can modify a feature or implement a new one in our core software.
Automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) refer to the methods of automatically identifying objects, collecting data about them, and entering them directly into computer systems, without human involvement.
Industrial automation is the use of set technologies and automatic control devices that results the automatic operation and control of industrial processes without significant human intervention. Automation devices include PLCs, PCs, PACs, etc. and technologies include various industrial communication systems.
Machine vision (MV) is the technology and methods used to provide imaging-based automatic inspection and analysis for such applications as automatic inspection, process control, and robot guidance, usually in industry.
Print and Apply machines for automatic labeling in automated production. Typical applications are manufacturing that needs a label applied on the product, on the box or on the pallet, with a bar-code, best before date, table of contents, batch number, weight, etc. (See also Dynamic Labelling below.)
Inkjet Printers use three main industrial technologies; Small Character systems for high speed marking; Large Character system for coding of texts and logos onto secondary packaging and High Definition systems for coding text and/or bar-codes and logos onto secondary packaging.
Laser Marking products focuses on providing top value solutions for automotive, electronics, medical devices, and high precision metal manufacturing. We have access to a complete range of products and solutions based on Fiber Laser, Solid State and CO2 technologies.
Thermal Transfer Technology is the ideal solution for overprinting variable data (dates, forward or backward number sequences, text, lists of ingredients, bar-codes, two-dimensional codes, logos) on plastic film or paper. It is a solution that allows printing directly in the production line, with the advantage of printing speed and quality. Industrial Thermal and Thermal Transfer Printers have trusted dependability for 24/7 mission-critical operations.
Dynamic labelling is a method for dynamically creating a label to give each product a unique ID, and when pre-printed labels cannot be used. Finished labels created in this manner are created according to specific customer orders and the product being processed. Labels are created, printed, and applied inline at high speed. (See also Print and Apply above.)
RFID (Radio-frequency identification) uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. An RFID tag consists of a tiny radio transponder, a radio receiver and transmitter. When triggered by an electromagnetic interrogation pulse from a nearby RFID reader device, the tag transmits digital data, usually an identifying inventory number, back to the reader. This number can be used to inventory goods. There are two types. Passive tags are powered by energy from the RFID reader's interrogating radio waves. Active tags are powered by a battery and thus can be read at a greater range from the RFID reader, up to hundreds of meters. Unlike a barcode, the tag does not need to be within the line of sight of the reader, so it may be embedded in the tracked object. RFID is one method of automatic identification and data capture (AIDC).
Supply Chain Traceability - In the supply chain, traceability may be both a regulatory and an ethical or environmental issue.
Materials Traceability - In regard to materials, traceability refers to the capability to associate a finished part with destructive test results performed on material from the same ingot with the same heat treatment, or to associate a finished part with results of a test performed on a sample from the same melt identified by the unique lot number of the material.
Traceability in Logistics - In logistics, traceability refers to the capability for tracing goods along the distribution chain on a batch number or series number basis.
Traceability in Food Processing - In food processing the term traceability refers to the recording through means of barcodes or RFID tags & other tracking media, all movement of product and steps within the production process. One of the key reasons this is such a critical point is in instances where an issue of contamination arises, and a recall is required.
Forestry Product Traceability - Within the context of supporting legal and sustainable forest supply chains, traceability has emerged in the last decade as a new tool to verify claims and assure buyers about the source of their materials.
Traceability in Manufacturing Records - A Manufacturing Record Book (MRB) is a collection of documents certifying quality control. It may contain tens of thousands of documents which are often buried in disconnected repositories around the world. It contains all applicable quality information regarding a product, such as the certificate of compliance, mill certifications and component test certificates that allow customers and inspectors to check for compliance.
Cloud computing is the on-demand availability of computer system resources, especially data storage (cloud storage) and computing power, without direct active management by the user. The term is generally used to describe data centers available to many users over the Internet.
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) - the integrated management of main business processes, often in real time and mediated by software and technology.
Manufacturing execution systems (MES) - computerized systems used in manufacturing to track and document the transformation of raw materials to finished goods.
Warehouse management system (WMS) - software made to help users improve the efficiency of tracking inventory and supplies as they move through a warehouse or distribution center. A WMS also makes certain processes, such as receiving, picking, and putting away products, faster and more accurate.
Technology Partners supplement our areas of expertise.
We have extensive experience with critical business-applications going back to the late 1980s. During this time we have built up considerable competency in many different types of hardware and technologies, and have built a unique network of selected Technology Partners with state-of-the-art systmes, devices and equipment we can use to supply turnkey solutions. We guarantee quality at every stage by working with "best-in-breed" partners and offering products and services from leading suppliers that supplement the software solutions we develop in-house.
No hidden agenda.
CodeIT solutions are designed to be hardware independent. They connect to clients’ existing equipment and leave clients free to choose hardware from different suppliers. Even though we are happy to supply turnkey solutions, we never tie clients to equipment brands or technologies. This enables us to be able to recommend, and our clients to choose, exactly what is needed in every situation. Openness and impartiality, and our strategy of always offering clients the greatest flexibility, differentiates us and has worked very well for our clients so far.
