In the previous article about data matrix codes (DMCs) you learned some basics. This article addresses questions which you will come across in your daily work with marking DMCs sooner or later:
- How can you optimize the DMC to increase its readability?
- How can you decrease the marking time for a DMC?
- How can you avoid that DMCs are incorrectly marked?
A data matrix code, or in short simply “DMC”, is a 2D code. In many industries DMCs have become the preferred way of encoding data, e.g. in automotive and medical industries. Machine readable data matrix codes are marked reliably, efficiently, permanently and abrasion-resistant with laser marking machines. But what do I need to know if I would like to mark products with data matrix codes? Read More
Since the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced the upcoming implementation of obligatory Unique Device Identification (UDI) marking for medical devices, manufacturers have been searching for feasible and economic marking solutions. Read More
Following the Unique Device Identification directive (UDI), mandated by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), medical devices have to be clearly identified to ensure traceability and patient safety. The rule-compliant implementation challenges medical device manufacturers and raises many questions. Read More
At the Medtech Europe, starting tomorrow in Stuttgart, FOBA will demonstrate laser marking on medical forceps. Visitors can get this trade show sample and see in live demonstrations, how vision-based automated laser positioning enables accurate marking results, even on products that are totally out of alignment from their expected positions.
