If you build it, it must work. Reliability – a seemingly straightforward product component –far too often gets sacrificed at the altar of two other bottom-line business elements: budget and deadline.
Not at Zephyr Technologies. At Zephyr, we design and test our client-customized data capture cables and accessories to not just meet, but exceed, the most-severe industrial environments our customers will face. But being tough is not enough. Our products are durable, and each is designed to deliver maximum flexibility to meet each client’s unique applications.
One example of Zephyr’s rugged flexibility is our Custom Scanner Boot – a housing for bar code scanners we created for an international shipping company. Barcode scanners suffer all sorts of random, in-the-field abuse. Here, workers were using the base of their scanners to push cardboard packages along the assembly line. The cardboard was slowly scraping away the plastic scanner housings, and the scanners were beginning to degrade and fail.
Zephyr studied the problem and developed a simple yet highly effective solution. Rather than change the barcode scanner housing – a costly and time-consuming option – Zephyr instead designed a wraparound boot resistant to the abrasive effects of the cardboard material.
The result? Zephyr’s reinforced redesign is allowing line workers to use the scanner as they had before (eliminating the need for expensive retraining), and empowering our customer to continue to deliver their packages to the world on time.
Creating better-performing products that impact the bottom line. That’s the Zephyr mission. Our success is rooted in providing quick turn design solutions to our customers’ most pressing problems. We partner with customers from project concept to product completion, combining design and engineering teams with a global sourcing and manufacturing network. This combination helps us condense order-to-delivery timelines and deliver completed data capture assemblies to meet customer deadlines.
