Tracking / Tracing
Especially with the introduction of the Eggs Cargo Concept automatic depalletizing becomes more and more interesting for egg packing centres. Ovotrack BV and Twinpack therefore developed the Eggs Cargo Identifier or ECI. This is a plastic clip with a unique barcode that can be clicked on the top corner of the pallet.
At the batch change position on the loader of the grading machine a fixed scanner is installed in order to read the barcode and activate the shift from one supplier to another.
Also in manual operations this is more reliable than the current procedure where people have to push a button or pull out a flag on the correct moment of batch change.
