  • OIML approved sensors (legal-for-trade)
  • Low built-in height
  • Relative low capacities
  • Miniature sensors
  • High Accuracy


Object Identification Systems in the retail industry

Zemic offers 2 different Object Identification Systems which can be used to identify the weight information and weight change information of a single commodity in the cabinet, or a shelf. These systems can be applied for stock management in different environments, like the retail industry, warehouses, farms. When the system ‘knows’ the weight of a single product, it can determine which and how many products are taken from a shelf or out of a vending machine.

2 different Object Identification Systems:
Weighing kit cross; can be placed under shelves. 
Weighing kit bar; can be used in vending machines

What does the Zemic Object Identification System do for the Retail industry?

Many applications of the Object Identification System can be found in the retail industry.
The system is able to identify the weight information and weight change information of a single commodity in the cabinet, with the minimum recognition accuracy of 1 gram. So it can actively read the real-time weight of the current shelf. It can also actively upload the weight change during the shopping process to the user interface.
