Founded in 2014, we launched the first ever smart glove for industry. But more importantly, we are a dedicated team of more than 180 people who are driven by the quest to connect the human workforce with the industrial IoT. We understand that organizations who will need to meet industry 4.0 requirements have to revise the interaction between humans, machines and data. Therefore, we designed our smart wearables to address and resolve these challenges.


 Press Releases

  • Chicago/Illinois, New York/New York, Munich/Germany, January 12, 2020. Industry wearables leader ProGlove, in collaboration with Samsung Electronics America, today announced a combined product solution to address the growing need for wearable scanners in industries ranging from retail, transportation, logistics, and manufacturing. The combined solution consists of ProGlove’s MARK product family of wearable barcode scanners and Samsung’s latest ruggedized smartphone for business – the Galaxy XCover Pro -- providing enterprise users a seamless, secure flow of information, enabling consistent traceability and increased user comfort.

    The solution bundle will be on display at this year’s NRF Annual Convention and Expo, January 12-14, at ProGlove’s (#1638) booth.

    When using the joint solution, mobile workers effectively have the information they need at their fingertips and can enter requested data into their IT systems on-the-go. By removing the need for firstline workers to return to stationary terminals to conduct business, memorize directions or pick up conventional scanner guns, efficiency and user comfort increases while user error decreases.

    Samsung’s industry-leading rugged smartphones are a perfect match for ProGlove’s wearable barcode scanners. The Android-based Galaxy XCover Pro is a sleek, light and stylish smartphone that is built tough for harsh environments, while offering first-line workers a single device that can perform multiple tasks at once. It provides confidence for tackling any job, in any place and in any type of condition – whether working out in the field during extreme weather or at an indoors manufacturing site. Moreover, a big and bright 6.3” screen provides high-quality viewing when looking at charts, presentations or schematics.

    Other capabilities include an enhanced touchscreen able to work in any condition, ‘enhanced touch’ for gloves-on use in wet conditions, and multiple programmable keys to conveniently create custom actions with one click. By leveraging the powerful Samsung Knox platform users can also increase data security while improving worker’s guidance.

    Barcode scanning is an important function with regards to documenting process steps and ensuring traceability – an essential part of tracking and tracing a product through the supply chain. With this Samsung collaboration, ProGlove provides a classic example of technology built around the human worker, providing a next-generation scanning solution that is easy to deploy, reliable in use, and dramatically cuts scanning time and reduces picking errors by its refined worker’s feedback.

    ProGlove’s worker feedback provides a combination of haptic, visual and audio signals to confirm correct picks and identify wrong picks when items are scanned. The company’s MARK family is in use at some of the world’s most renowned global industrial brands such as BMW, Bosch, and Lufthansa Technik. MARK is completely hands-free, and roughly the size of a matchbox; making it the world’s lightest and smallest barcode scanner.

  • ProGlove Reel
    The ProGlove Reel is an innovative wearable device compatible with all ProGlove scanners designed for low to medium frequency scanning environments....

  • As our product portfolio of scanning solutions has grown, we’ve identified the need for additional wearables. In addition to our range of gloves and wraps, we’re excited to announce the introduction of our new Reel. Much like a common badge reel, the ProGlove Reel clips to an operator’s clothing, such as a belt, or can be worn around the neck. Our Reel allows operators to scan as needed and retract the scanner when not in use. Simply pull the scanner out when ready to scan, and the Reel snaps back into place, out of the way and ready for the next scan. Designed for medium to low frequency scanning use cases and  for operators that are not able to wear gloves in their workflow, the Reel is compatible with all MARK family scanning products.

    • Retractable reel for low-frequency scanning environments
    • Pull-to-scan function – automatically releasing the scan engine when pulling it out
    • Highly durable Aramid thread with a reach close to 28 in
    • Additional release button
    • Two way attachment: Tiltable clip and lanyard
