Code reading software sees parts with 2-D codes

IDMax code reading software from Cognex is designed for direct part mark identification (DPMI), which is a segment of the industrial ID market that involves directly marking parts with permanent 2-D data matrix codes, and then reading those codes quickly and reliably throughout the production process.

IDMax code reading software from Cognex is designed for direct part mark identification (DPMI), which is a segment of the industrial ID market that involves directly marking parts with permanent 2-D data matrix codes, and then reading those codes quickly and reliably throughout the production process. The software is based on Cognex's patented PatMax technology.



IDMax helps secure high read rates for distorted, inconsistent, and poorly marked codes. This software is now available on Cognex's In-Sight 5100, 5400, and 3400 vision sensors.



Assembly and parts suppliers to the U.S. Department of Defense, as well as automotive, aerospace, medical device, and electronics manufacturers, are increasingly implementing DPMI for error-proofing to ensure that the appropriate manufacturing processes are performed in the correct sequence on the right parts. In addition, DPMI is a vital tool in creating a history of the part's entire lifecycle for use in supply chain management and repair depots.

"DPMI is a challenging application, requiring fast and reliable reading of Data Matrix codes marked directly on the toughest surfaces, such as metal, glass, ceramic, and plastic," says Justin Testa, Cognex's senior VP of ID products. "These codes can become distorted due to the manufacturing process, and many are poorly marked with missing or inconsistent features. IDMax tolerates these distortions and achieves the high read rates that are vital to the success of any part tracking application." www.cognex.com
