PDF 417 bar code is a laser-scannable symbol that packs
up to 1.1 kilobytes of data into the same space as a linear
bar code. It could carry data, text, graphics, biometrics
and voice records. The PDF 417 is used by Department of
Defense for supply chain applications and automotive industry,
such as General Motors. Some states use the symbology
on licenses to provide detailed information about drivers
to police officers on the spot.
JETEC for printing 2D codes on your products.
Corporation has the capability of upgrading your present
marking process to include 2D code marking and reading.
For those customers with existing ink jet or laser marking
systems our IMS5000
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.
