Handheld Verifiers

September 1, 2009

Cognex Corp. announced that the company’s DataMan handheld and fixed-mount 2D verifiers enable auto industry suppliers to verify compliance with the new B-17 code quality guideline issued July 20, 2009, by the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG).

The new guideline incorporates the Direct Part Mark (DPM) Quality Guideline for 2D codes developed by the Association for Automatic Identity and Mobility (AIM). The guideline provides the foundation for a universal standard to verify the quality of Data Matrix codes directly marked on parts with techniques such as laser, dot peen, inkjet, and other DPM marking methods. The goal of the guideline is to ensure consistent marking methods and to enable the highest read rates of direct marked codes throughout the manufacturing process and supply chain. Suppliers will be expected to verify and document that codes meet the guidelines before components can be shipped to the customer.
