SENSOR FOR STAMP AND BARCODE DETECTION
THE AUSTRIAN CONTRIBUTION TO AUTOMATIC LETTER SORTING SYSTEMS
Stamp detection is performed only by pattern recognition of the
serration pattern. No chemical preparation of the stamps is needed.
Different codes located in the postage zone are detectable. The
codes can be printed either in the stamp image or on pre-printed
envelopes or postcards. A wide range of bar- and customer specified
codes are adjustable to the BML3D software.
By using the BML3D in multi channel operation, a separation of different
mail categories can be achieved. The criterion for separation may
be a code or different serrations. When using serrations, the number
of channels is limited due to stamp production. Codes up to 10 different
patterns (upper limit 34 elements/20mm) can be used to achieve mail
The BML3D system gives plenty of statistic support to check the
performance of the detection system as well as the mechanical condition
of the machine (measurement of the letter gap).
No preventive maintenance on the scanners is necessary. The only
consumable is the halogen lamp (life time approximately 2000h).
