Project Description

CR6000 Product Overview

cr6000-mfg-barcode-scanningThe Code Reader™ 6000 (CR6000) is an industrial grade direct part mark (DPM) imager designed to read barcodes of every sort. The CR6000 effortlessly reads laser-etched, embossed, dot peen, low-contrast and postal barcodes, and easily decodes dense and extremely small barcodes. Designed with multiple illumination fields, the CR6000 intuitively selects the field that is most efficient at reading each barcode type. This results in quick and accurate data collection from hard-to-read surfaces, damaged barcodes, and those that are smudged, dirty or even caked with debris. This makes the CR6000 ideal for component tracking on assembly lines and other manufacturing applications.

How do our customers use the CR6000?

The CR6000 is made for manufacturing. We see this reader used a lot in automotive, heavy equipment, assembly lines, work-in-process, and more.

CR6000 Industrial Grade

The CR6000 is the industrial grade scanner of choice for manufacturing workflows. It is an aggressive DPM reader that can read off of any surface, in any condition, and with any lighting.

Multiple Illumination Fields

The CR6000 is designed with multiple illumination fields. What does this mean? This reader can intuitively select the field that is most efficient at reading each barcode type. This feature is ideal in manufacturing processes where the lighting and conditions aren’t predictable. This reader can read any barcode in any situation.


Built for Manufacturing

Don’t you want a reader that is specifically built for manufacturing workflow? With the CR6000, there will never be a barcode missed. In a workflow as sensitive as manufacturing, we think that is pretty important. The CR6000 can also be used hands-free or handheld, depending on preference.
