Reading of 2-dimensional Codes on Individual Boxes
Case Number 202
last update: April 1, 2008
Product information, serial numbers, lot data, etc., is written into 2-dimensional codes and printed onto labels that are attached to individual boxes. Because the data cannot be visually confirmed by using only the 2-dimensional codes, the necessary data is also printed in text form.
The 2-dimensional codes are read when shipping the individual boxes, and when the individual boxes are received by the customer.
A large amount of data can be written in 2-dimensional codes without requiring a lot of space.
The bank function allows several types of labels to be read without requiring tool changes.
Data can also be read while the workpiece is moving (although speed restrictions exist).
In addition to direct marking, labels and paper-based codes can be easily read.
Benefit / Efficiency
The use of 2-dimensional codes provides more information, which enables more accurate traceability.
Created to meet real-world production site needs.
