2D and 1D code scanning and verification in manufacturing
These days, different processes such as laser inscription, or printed 2D codes on products and components are applied for traceability and identification purposes. These are commonly designated as DPM (Direct Part Marking). In order to guarantee the quality and legibility of, in particular, 2D codes there are different standards such as AIM/DPM or ISO/IEC which, in part, defines different quality features for evaluation of the applied code. AIM/DPM targets directly labelled codes, whereas ISO/IEC 15415 addresses printed 2D codes.
Using certified systems from Cognex and Microscan we offer you completely configured camera systems for code scanning, verification and validation of 2D codes in your production line. Verification is achieved by explicit checking of the quality of the code against a pre-defined standard, a process which can usually be performed offline with one of a standard panel of selected camera and lighting systems. Using such a validation system, the quality of directly labelled codes can also be assessed at high speed during the manufacturing process. In this way, errors or abnormalities in the inscription can be recognized early on.
