Retail

  

In the retail industry many miniature sensorssingle point load cells and object identification systems are being used. 

Due to the high volume of sensors in this market it is our challenge to produce and stock enough products for our customers in order to offer the best price, quality and service level you can expect.

 

 Force sensors in the retail industry

retail shelf weighing

    

This sector can be divided into:

  • Shelves with weighing function
  • Counter weighing with tickets
  • Counter weighing without tickets
  • Check weighing
  • Weigh-pricing-label weighing instruments
  • Self service weighing instruments

Important characteristics of force sensors

Typical features or demands for force sensors within this sector are:

  • 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.

Can force sensors be used for predictive maintenance?

Predictive maintenance is being developed in many market sectors

Thursday 3rd of October 2019, Maarten Kleemans and Corné van Gool from Zemic Europe visited JADS (Jheronimus Academy of Data Science). JADS and Co-host MEUNGO organised the event CBM and Predictive Maintenance. When you can predict an unplanned downtime for your application by steering on anomalies, costs will reduce and performances will be optimized. The market is changing from reactive service to proactive service.
