Flake is a square array of discrete dots, similar to Philips
"Dot Code". It is possible to encode more than
100 numeric digits in a space of only 5mm x 5mm. User
selectable error correction allows up to 40% of the code
to be destroyed and still remain readable.
code is used in the pharmaceutical industry and has an
advantage that it can be applied to products and materials
in a wide variety of ways, including printed labels, ink-jet
printing, laser-etching, indenting or hole punching. Electronic
Automation Ltd. was acquired in March 1999 by Videojet
Systems International Inc.
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.
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.
