Create a seamless work environment by connecting employees
with accurate information, and empower them to do their
best. Whether on the production line, in the warehouse or at
the dock, better data means fewer errors and lower costs.
Handheld Computers and Tablet PC’s
Today’s manufacturing environment demands the convenience of a conventional computer in a portable, handheld
device. Access to data while on the move ensures information is accessible in real-time while increasing mobility
and productivity beyond the office to the production floor. VisionID supply and support a range of mobile devices from
the worlds leading manufacturers of these product ranges including Motorola, Symbol, Intermec, Honeywell and Xplore.
Intrinsically Safe/ATEX approved equipment
The diverse range of intrinsically safe and ATEX approved equipment available from VisionID means that
we can cater for your specialised needs for hazardous area electronic equipment for both maintenance and
production purposes. With ever increasingly stringent standards of competence having to be demonstrated
for personnel designing, installing and maintaining hazardous area systems VisionID offers training, site
surveys and inspection services for intrinsically safe equipment and systems installed in medical device
plants throughout Ireland. At VisionID we have teamed with the leading manufacturers of ATEX approved
products including Stahl, Gecma and Bartec.
Wireless LAN for Manufacturing
The VisionID portfolio of wireless solutions enables both process and discrete manufacturing environments to access, move and manage any
type of information including voice, video and data in real time. Combine Wireless LAN enabled handheld computers and bar code technologies
with applications from market leading automation partners to streamline your manufacturing processes. By creating a more seamless flow
of continuous, accurate information, you’ll experience fewer errors and improve production within your facility. VisionID supply and support
Wireless LAN solutions from the worlds leading manufacturers including Cisco and Motorola/Symbol.
VisionID provides both in-stock and custom-made label solutions for a multiple of applications within the
manufacturing environment. From full colour finished product to warehouse shipping labels, VisionID has it

VisionID’s dedicated Media Specialist can advise on best label solution for your product.
VisionID’s cleanroom labelling supplies meet the rigorous standards for printing solutions in cleanroom
environments, labels that will deliver consistent performance in spite of exposure to chemicals, moisture and
even extreme high and low temperatures. VisionID supply labels to hold up to the harsh conditions thrown at
them through autoclave and cryogenic treatments.
This line of labels answers the call for environmental purity in a broad range of manufacturing environments,
from biotechnology laboratories to breweries. The solutions meet the cleanroom needs of virtually all
industries, including pharmaceutical, automotive, aerospace, and medical device.
A complete range of label printers are available to compliment the on-demand label printing
requirement of a busy medical device manufacturing plant. Desktop, mobile, mid-range and
high end printers are available to ensure prompt, accurate and legible labels are produced for all
applications from end product on-pack labels to warehouse shipping labels and tags. VisionID’s list
of label printer manufacturers include Zebra, Intermec, Datamax and Toshiba.

RFID for Medical Device Applications
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) solutions for medical device applications provide a number of
benefits including a complete track and trace solution. By augmenting existing bar code technology with
RFID the manufacturer can create an electronic “pedigree” for every product. An electronic pedigree
contains a full account of how a specific product moves through the supply chain to the customer,
identifying unique information such as serial number, lot number and expiration date. The benefits
of RFID technology to the medical device sector includes increased brand protection through anti-
counterfeiting technology, improved operational efficiencies and improved data accuracy and integrity.
Direct Part Marking Solutions
Tracking individual components or simply tagging valuable assets can be a costly proposition when standard
product labelling techniques fail to measure up over time. Direct Part Marking (DPM) provides a permanent
marking solution that ensures readability throughout the life of your asset or products, even when subjected
to harsh environments. The most common methods of marking are Laser-etching, Dot peening, Ink-jet
and Chemical-etching and the method of etching is dependant on the material to be marked, the required
lifespan, accessibility of area to be marked etc. VisionID technicians can advise on best permanent marking
