The growing need for unit-level traceability, combined with increasingly limited space on parts for adding barcodes, has led to the widespread use of information-dense 2D barcode formats, such as Data Matrix, marked directly on circuit boards, capacitors, photovoltaics, and other electronic components. Microscan offers a range of imagers designed to read these barcodes, including extremely small, low-contrast 2D barcodes, and barcodes with optically noisy backgrounds. Direct part marking plus a robust barcode reading system enables manufacturers to achieve part traceability throughout the supply chain. Barcode automation can also confirm that the correct part is added to an assembly, and trigger line changeovers.
Microscan’s line of barcode, vision and lighting products is backed by one of the world’s most robust patent portfolios and years of proven performance in the electronic industry. Microscan’s barcode traceability technology helps manufacturers cut costs by achieving higher yields and reducing defects; machine vision eliminates human error for fast, reliable assembly verification and automated inspection of PCBs, flex circuits, connectors, and other parts.
From basic barcode reading to complex machine vision inspection, identification and measurement, Microscan remains committed to continuous innovation and development to meet market and customer needs for quality product solutions to track, trace and control applications.
