Readability of Directly Marked Traceability Symbols on PCBs

Readability of Directly Marked Traceability Symbols on PCBs

Recent product recalls have shown how important it is to have traceability data available to reduce recall costs. The most widely used  method  has  been  manual  application  of  labels. Keeping  up  with  modern  production  capabilities  can  be  a challenge and most companies are now transitioning to inkjet or laser marking. The  goal  is to apply  markings that  can be read throughout the overall process and by the end-customer, and can also be relied upon in the case of recalls and recycling programs.

IPC APEX 2016 Las Vegas Interview

Microscan Global Business Development Manager for Electronics, Christoph Wimmer, introduces barcode reading and machine vision solutions on display at the IPC APEX 2016 tradeshow in Las Vegas, Nevada. Microscan's MicroHAWK® Barcode Readers are integrated into a demo of Microscan's PanelScan® PCB Traceability System to illustrate in-line PCB identification for worry-free traceability of components despite line changes resulting in new codes on PCBs, new code or mark locations, different PCB colors, and other changes.
