understands that manufacturers may have several industrial ink
jet printers and laser markers from various suppliers (Domino,
Imaje, Videojet, Synrad, Quantronix, etc.) at their site
but desire one central software to control these printing devices.
In addition to printing devices, manufacturers may want to read
a bar code from a work order, have the marking program for that
product type be automatically selected and then have product
specific variable information downloaded into the marking program.
Printed bar codes may need to be verified for readability or
2D codes scanned and verified for Mil-Std-130 compliance prior
to removing the product from the marking station. Lastly, the
manufacturer may desire a statistical record of the verification
results or the marked information to be uploaded to the central
host computer. To meet these and many other requirements, JETEC
offers the IMS Integrated Marking Application Software.
offers two IMS Software configurations. One for fixed head systems,
whereby the inkjet printer(s) or laser marker(s) will be stationary
and the parts moved beneath the marker head. For fixed position
applications JETEC offers the IMS
2701 Software. This software is capable of controlling
numerous ink jet printers, laser markers, label printers, bar
code scanners, 2D code readers, weight and measure scales, UV
curing stations, etc. The second IMS Software is for moving
print head applications, integrated systems with motion assemblies.
IMS 5000 Software was developed
to provide ink jet and laser marker control, in addition to
integrated devices safety light curtain, SMEMA conveyors, machine
vision hardware, bar code scanners, X/Y/Z and theta motion assemblies
and stop/start control hardware. All multi-axis JETEC systems
are under IMS 5000 software
Software operates within the Microsoft Windows environment.
It provides easy set-up and control of individual part marking
files. In most cases, using IMS Software will extend the normal
capabilities of industrial ink jet printers or laser markers.
Using IMS provides the user with the capability to print all
standard Windows fonts, manipulate bar codes or 2D codes parameters
based on specific substrates, print logos, images, custom date
and time formats and comply with Mil-Std-130 UID requirements.

offers software development services to provide complete application
development and integration support. JETECs software development
team can provide the IMS Software in its standard configurations
or customize the front end or provide enhancement capabilities
to support your specific application. Over the past years, this
Team has solved some challenging product identification problems.
Most modifications are in the form of device drivers for new
types of equipment or hardware, application specific user interfaces
or manufacturing database integration.
continually makes upgrades to the standard IMS Software configurations.
It is for this reason that JETEC strongly recommends IMS users
