High-volume fruit cooperative keeps track of products by using TSC's portable Alpha-3R

6 marzo, 2017

TSC - Alpha 3ROGM Obstgrossmarkt Mittelbaden eG is a modern, high-performance wholesale cooperative with its headquarters in Oberkirch, district Central Baden, Germany. There are around 2000 fruit producers that are members of the wholesale cooperative that deliver their freshly harvested goods on a daily basis to the producer’s cooperative. There, the berry fruits, stone fruits and pome fruits undergo a thorough check, are sorted and labeled. Then the entire flow of goods are bundled, sales orders are picked and the delicate goods are loaded on modern refrigerated vehicles. As a rule, the products are in retail stores within 24 hours after having been harvested.

An enormous amount of data has to be processed by the ERP system in a very short time, given the large number of different products and suppliers, the numerous collection points and operating sites, and the speed with which products are handled. To achieve clear identification of goods, and maintain continuous transparency and traceability throughout the supply chain, a total of 39 powerful battery-powered TSC Alpha-3R printers were implemented.

The printers print duplicate barcodes and labels directly at the fruit crates and pallets in the warehouses and open spaces. This means that employees generate labels when and where they are needed. This procedure guarantees that the proper codes are generated and the goods are labeled correctly. The labels contain all the necessary information, including supplier number, lot number and two-dimensional Datamatrix codes. It is essential that the printers are fully functional during hours of operation and that all the necessary data are available at all times.

TSC - Alpha 3RThe Alpha-3R portable printer only weighs 550 grams including the battery, making it so light that it can be worn comfortably over a long period of time on either a belt or with a shoulder strap. The printer’s battery ensures optimum performance for 12 hours, without needing to be charged. The printer’s 8 MB SDRAM and 4 MB FLASH offer sufficient memory capacity even for high demand printing requirements. And the double-walled plastic case resists dust and water, and the rubber casing protects the printer from drops at heights up to 1,5 meters.
