一介平民為何要擁有一支條碼機?

 

首先, 因為很愛買書, 至於買了之後看不看, 由心情跟記憶力決定, 所以不知不覺當中, 就累積了很多本書, 多到甚麼程度呢? 大概就是淹腳目的概念,意思就是多到堆疊在地上會不小心被絆倒這樣. 然後漸漸地, 連走路的空間也越來越小.  怎麼辦呢?  扔掉可惜, 要看完又覺得大多數的內容都超想看, 一直到忍無可忍時, 我決定要斷捨離, 先把已經看過,覺得可以賣掉的書本先整理出來 ( 竟然沒有幾本 ) , 然後再把沒有看過, 感覺不想再看的書也整理出來 ( 超多的 ! ) 然後就是找可以賣二手書的平台.   透過網路, 我找到讀冊 : 



申請了帳號後, 開始賣二手書 , 然後畫面是這樣 :


在上方ISBN商品條碼那裏要輸入書本後面印刷的13碼ISBN碼 ( 簡稱書碼 ) . 





然後我選了22本書決定上架賣, 所以, 一個字一個字輸入要花不少時間, 如果輸入錯誤還要一碼一碼地確認, 非常花時間.   這時候, 我就想到我們公司的條碼機, 如果使用條碼機輸入, 事情就會變得非常簡單. 

首先, 使用條碼機時, 只要按下掃描的按鍵, 就會出現掃描的紅色光線


然後把紅色的掃描線對準書碼


這樣, 在聽到條碼機發出ㄅㄧ地一聲, 13碼的書碼就會在一秒內被輸入到那個 ISBN的空格中, 然後系統也會立刻顯示出相關的資料.  真的是超級方便的. 


所以以讀冊這個平台來說, 上架22本書所花的時間大概5分鐘之內.  這個叫做 [ 工欲善其事,必先利其器 ] ,善用工具, 
可以省非常多的時間.   如果使用手動一碼一碼輸入的話, 應該會半途就想放棄. 


接著,平民可能會說, 就為了賣二手書, 買一支條碼機?  當然, 對於喜歡看書買書然後要賣書的人, 添購一支條碼機是有必要的.  然後我這裡有一小批性能很不錯的雷射條碼機便宜出清.  為何要便宜出清 ? 

1. 這個機種已經停產
2. 庫存貨, 有點小瑕疵 ( 沒有 logo 貼紙 ) ,但是功能正常
3. 其中有幾隻可能有馬達轉動時的聲音 ( 有這種狀況的會更便宜出售, 只求有又好用又省錢的朋友可以考慮 ) 

要出清的雷射條碼機長相 ( 有人叫做激光槍, 這是大陸那裏的習慣稱法 ) : 



功能正常, 保固3個月, 購買後3個月內故障, 免費更換同款的新品.  整個條碼機是台灣生產製造, 雷射模組使用的是美國的名牌Metrologic 的產品. 
 

注意事項 :  雷射條碼槍的內部光學結構含有一個帶著鏡片的轉動馬達,負責把雷射二極體發出的雷射紅點打成一條紅色雷射線, 
                    因為有可動元件的關係 ( 轉動馬達與鏡片 ) , 所以不能摔, 摔到的話有可能讓鏡片破碎, 馬達軸心摔壞.  所以人為摔壞
                    的話, 是無法保固的. 

                    如果擔心自己粗手粗腳把雷射掃描機摔壞的話, 建議可以買 CCD 的條碼掃描機 ,這種設計中沒有可動元件,
     比較不會有不經摔的問題, 話雖如此,光學的東西能不摔還是不要摔比較好. 不過一般正常使用,還是挺耐用
     的. 

另外也可以免費獲得, 只要在我們的 google 我的商家留下 5星好評前十名的朋友, 就可以免費獲得一支. 數量有限, 賣完或者送完就沒囉. 

有興趣的請跟我聯絡喔. 

euginia@canmax.com.tw 

標題請寫 : 我想免費獲得條碼機

因為庫存量不是很多的關係, 參加留好評送條碼機活動的朋友, 也有可能獲得的是CCD的條碼機. 總之, 快點來參加吧. 

後記 : 

露天拍賣也可以大量上傳要拍賣的二手書, 所以也可以使用條碼機來縮短上傳的時間. 跟手動輸入大概是騎腳踏車跟高鐵行進速度的差距.

CANMAX Company Profile

 Hello everybody, I am the sales manager of CANMAX Technology Ltd., 

My name is Euginia. I am happy to be here and introduce CANMAX to all of you.     

We are a designer and manufacturer for bar code scanners.


And who are we? Simply put, CANMAX is a company that has been focusing on the bar code scanning industry for 26 years.
 
More than half of our business comes from customized projects.  And our clients are mainly from Japan. CANMAX attaches
great importance to product quality and technical services. And we have obtained a good reputation in the industry.

And how we make our clients happy and cooperate with us?

First of all, our business style is simple, direct and practical. It’s because we do business just like to make friends, should be long term relationship. The time will tell everything.  To make good control on the products quality, we insist to keep our factory in Taiwan and be the next door of our office.  So we can go there and watch the production at any time. Before shipping, we will make full QC test to make sure everything is perfect. 

Here I will tell you a short story to show our R & D team’s value.  It’s a story which my boss told me. 


Many years ago, it was only 2 weeks left before the university entrance exam in Taiwan. All admission tickets are mailed to every candidate. However, the examination committee found their barcode scanners could not read the barcode on the admission tickets. They were in hurry to look for bar code scanners that could read the barcode.  But no suppliers can help. Then our Taiwan distributor called us for help.  We found the reason for the trouble. The printing factory thought the barcode was too long and they cut to the length to what they prefer.  That’s a very ridiculous mistake because…




To cut any part of the completed barcode is something like to cut the part of the  left side photo.  That will make the image can not be identified. Then our  engineers were isolated to find a solution. And they have only one week left.  Finally, they analyzed the regularity of the damaged barcode data, and  compensated the cut data to recover the original data.  It’s great they saved that  university entrance exam successfully.  Otherwise, there is no time to print the  admission tickets and mail to all students again.  So I am very proud of our R & D  team. 


By this page you will see our organization and the division of our R & D. so we can take care ID Design, mechanism, hardware and programming for many different projects.


You can see the photo which I took at our R & D dept. during their working time.  And they are some of our hardware, software and mechanism engineers. 


In addition to man power on our R & D dept. we also invest a lots of money on equipment such like this page shows.


     This page shows the photo I took at our factory.  

During production, we will do burn in test for 8 hours then end with 100% function test for OQC then packing and shipping.

 
This page shows our product lines which is 1D,  2D, handheld, Bluetooth bar code
scanners and modules. 


Here are some photos to show the application with our bar code scanners which  can be used in super market, hospital, airport and warehouse.

This page shows some of our users and you can see most are from Japan.

This page shows the certification we have, include the ISO for manufacturer of barcode scanners.


Thank you for your time.  I left our company information for who wants to be our distributor in your country.

The best partner for POS

 CM-890 Slim type CCD barcode scanner is a old model of CANMAX Technology Ltd., for about 5~6 years.  It's quite stable and durable, very low failure rate and easy to use. 

CM-890 Slim type CCD barcode scanner is the best partner for POS.  It's durable and good for reseller for just buying and selling. So the resellers have no burden  and cost for the after service.  ( to maintain and repair the damage products is also a cost ) 

And this CCD barcode scanner is made in Taiwan and popular for POS users.  See following photo which I took in Tokyo, Japan when I 

had a business trip there.  I saw our CM-890 CCD barcode scanner in the shop and the lady said it works well and lightweight for holding it. 



Beside, the CM-890 CCD barcode scanner is with an optional function to have UV LED for banknote recognition.  



And it's allowed to have silk printing with customer's logo on the top of the barcode scanner : 


Because of the power power consumption, some customers use it as an external barcode scanner of tablet PC and smart phone. 
The cable is micro USB type. 


And there is stand for the barcode scanner










What else? 




Cute, right?  😄

But it's just my idea to have a Embossed logo to show a different feeling to present a brand, spirit or image. 

Beside, the slim CCD barcode scanner CM-890 can scan barcode from smart phone for payment system : 




If you are an exporter for POS, or an distributor for barcode scanners, welcome to send your inquiry to me by email : 


euginia@canmax.com.tw 

I will be happy to receive your message and answer you as soon as possible.

UV barcode Scanner

 By some especial request from our clients, we add a UV code reading function on our 2D barcode scanner, model no. CM-2D202. 


Our 2D barcode scanner can read UV ink printed barcode

The reading performance is good if the UV ink is with clear UV effect ( see above brightness barcode ).  And it will be poor if the UV ink is very light ) 

And the readable resolution is about 4mil.   But if the barcode is DM ( Data Matrix , it's a kind of " dot barcode " ) and some of its dots are gathered by one big dots, the reading result may be failure. 

The UV barcode be an  invisible barcode is a good solution for some security which is not easy to be
copy or seen by normal way.  But the technology for how to print a good UV barcode is a know-how.  Then how to have the barcode scanner to read such UV barcode is also a know-how. 


Above is a better done Data Matrix barcode which is clear and no much dots be gathered. 



Above is a poor Data Matrix barcode which is not clear. 


There are 2 barcode on above image.  The right side QR code is a good UV barcode and the left side QR code is a poor UV barcode. 


A good and readable UV barcode


The left side Data Matrix barocde is difficult to be read because there are lots center dots are gathered together.
