2D Code Readers

1. What is the difference between 2D code reading and verification?

2D Code Verifiers

1. What is the difference between 2D code reading and verification?

Direct Product Marking (DPM)

1. What is direct product marking or DPM?

2. We currently use rubber stamps to mark our product information but are now required to direct product mark our parts with Mil-Std 130 UID compliant 2D codes. What process alternatives are available for compliance?

Ink Jet Systems

1. Can industrial ink jet printers from such manufacturers as Domino, Videojet, Imaje, etc. be used for Mil-Std 130 UID compliance applications?

2. What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of ink jet printing versus laser etching of UID marks?

3. What printers from Videojet are capable of printing UID compliant 2D codes?

4. I have Videojet Excel HR series ink jet printers and want to print Mil-Std 130 UID compliant 2D codes. Are they capable?

5. What other printers, other than Videojet printers, have JETEC tested or are in the process of testing for Mil-Std UID compliant printing capability?

6. My customer contracts require Arial, Helvetica or other fonts that are not standard with most industrial ink jet printers. Is there software available that will allow me to print standard true type or Windows fonts using industrial ink jet printers?

7. How can I determine if my existing industrial ink jet printer can be used for Mil-Std 130 UID compliance?

8. What are some of the Mil-Std 130 UID specific features available with printer device control software packages, such as JETEC’s IMS2701 or IMS5000?

9. What are some of the advantages in switching from pad transfer printing to industrial ink jet printing?

Why JETEC?

JETEC Corporation has the capability of upgrading your present marking process to include 2D code marking and reading in compliance with Mil-Std-130L. For those customers with existing ink jet or laser marking systems our IMS2701 Software can provide the necessary 2D code marking capability without requiring additional marking equipment. Otherwise, JETEC can provide complete, turnkey 2D code marking systems. All of the marking systems offered by JETEC Corporation provide the capability to print traditional 1D bar codes as well as 2D codes. JETEC marking systems incorporate industrial ink jet, laser scribing and dot peening technologies for Direct Product Marking (DPM), thereby creating a permanent robust mark without the expense and hassle of labels. Additionally, all 2D codes require a 2D code reader for encoding; they cannot be read using an ordinary linear bar code scanner. Process engineers should be aware that there is a large variance in how well vendor 2D code readers perform on varying surfaces. Knowing which industrial marker and reader to use for your specific application can be challenging. We encourage you to allow JETEC to use our expertise in Mark-Read systems to select the best product marking and read verification system for your application. Contact us for free consultation, sample marking, product demonstration and systems definition.
