Zebra Technologies Barcode ReaderProduct ID Camera DemoBarcode scanners and RFID readers, matrix labels, verifiers, and vision sensors are solutions HTE offers for direct part marking and traceability applications. These products effectively decrease production errors and ensure product quality. By marking and identifying items, you are able to trace and monitor their status throughout the entire production process, allowing for quick corrective action and lower manufacturing costs.


With years of experience working with traceability products from top manufacturers, HTE’s TECHTEAM specialists are available to provide support at any point during the application of barcode label creation or reading equipment into your system. TECHTEAM members can assist with up front training, design and layout, installation and start-up, and ongoing technical support or troubleshooting.

Laser mark on ice-creamPermanent, non-destructive product traceability marks can be made on a much wider variety of materials than you would think possible with the laser etching equipment from Datalogic.  You can see many examples like the ice-cream treat pictured here by clicking this link.


HTE Automation is your local source for traceability and part marking solutions manufactured by Datalogic, and Balluff. Part marking items from these manufacturers include non-destructive laser marking machines. Some commonly used traceability products are RFID readers, fixed-mount and handheld barcode readers, 1D or 2D matrix labels, matrix verifiers, and vision sensors.


RFID Product TraceabilityRadio Frequency Identification, or RFID, allows for application flexibility and offers reliable information needed for complex business decisions. Designed for the toughest environments and compatible with almost any network, our RFID systems offer a wide selection of tags, processors, and antennas.  The lines we sell range from low to high frequency systems, and are ideal for many applications such as machine tool identification and logistics. The varieties of read ranges span from less than 1 foot up to 6 feet, making them capable of almost any challenge in the plant.
RFID Target
Direct part marking and traceability systems are becoming standard in many manufacturing industries due to increasing demand to eliminate errors and meeting increasing customer specification demands. Identification systems are already common in aerospace, automotive, and electronic manufacturing industries, but have a growing presence in many additional production applications.

By permanently marking parts, you are able to track their status through their entire life cycle. HTE Automation is your resource for all part marking, identification, and traceability needs if you are located in Kansas, Missouri or Illinois
