JANUARY 9, 2009--Research-based machine-vision company Vitronic Machine Vision (Louisville, KY, USA; www.vitronic.com) has named The Numina Group (Woodridge, IL, USA; www.conveyingcontrols.com) as the winner of the VINTEC award. The VINTEC award will be presented to the president of Numina Group, Dan Hanrahan, on January 14 at 12:00 p.m. at PROMAT Booth #4827.
Numina Group is receiving the VINTEC award for its advances in automating order and product picking validation through the combined use of barcode and vision technology for the order fulfillment and warehouse distribution industry. Numina Group improved picking efficiency and order accuracy for major distributors of electronics and consumer products. Other clients have achieved essentially 100% order integrity for case and case content validation with the Numina Group Solutions based on Vitronic Camera Technology. As a result, Vitronic reports, facilities are able to process orders more rapidly, with virtually 100% accuracy, reducing delivery time and operational costs.
"This VINTEC award highlights the importance and impact automation has on the material-handling industry," says Vitronic vice president Robert King. "Numina Group's impact significantly reduces costs and maximizes customer service." Numina Group joins the ranks of past recipients such as 2008 award winner Daimler.
An international panel of Vitronic engineers determine the award winner based on a proven demonstration of ongoing success in providing automation concepts, delivery, and commitment to serving the needs of material handling; facilitation of the logistics process; and a solid record of achievement, management, and leadership.
