Cognex has introduced a DPM verification report. The free report discusses 10 important considerations to make when choosing a DPMV system. Direct Part Mark (DPM) identification is a key industrial identification (ID) segment. DPM ID involves directly forming machine-readable codes on manufactured items and tracking those items as long as they are useful. Cognex has applied nearly a quarter century of machine-vision based image formation and image analysis expertise in its suite of world-class ID products. Cognex offers a variety of resources designed to help guide customers through important considerations to ensure a successful DPM implementation. The report can be downloaded at www.cognex.com/products/ID.
