Choosing an IUID Verification Equipment Supplier
Choosing the best provider of a UID verification system is important to save operating expenses and also to improve productivity. In fact, many companies that seek MIL SPEC compliance quickly experience a number of benefits when adopting identification and tracking principles for U.S. Department of Defense applications. These positive results often emerge as streamlined processes, decreased scrap or reworked products, and reduced operating costs.
Why should you choose a standard equipment provider?
A verification system is an important part of UID compliance. The verification process includes verifying the syntax of IUID data matrix codes. These data matrix codes are often verified with in-house IUID verifiers. Barcode readers and IUID scanners are able to read and decode MRI data. You can achieve IUID registration only when you provide the correct data within the correct formats. As such, it is necessary to use standard verification equipment to ensure proper data matrix codes with relevant identification and syntax. For the best results, it’s helpful to choose an equipment supplier who can provide both DPM and LDP verifiers.
There are two types of verifiers available on today’s market. These include DPM and LDP verifiers. DPM verifiers are used to check identification made through a direct-to-part marking process. DPM verifiers should be able to verify any type of direct part marking technology, such as laser technology, industrial inkjet, and chemical etching. DPM units are often software-based devices that connected to a computer. A standard supplier should provide MIL-STD-130 recognized lighting options in their IUID verifiers and specific encoding data for unique UID bar code specifications. These types of verifiers are also available in portable sizes.
LDP verifiers are used to verify IUID labels and data plates. LDP equipment is also connected to a host PC. This equipment checks data matrix codes specified by the current UID standard. This equipment verifies the size and legibility of the coded labels for compliance.
Integrate your own UID verification system and begin experiencing more benefits with your compliance efforts. You’ll simplify and streamline production processes, while strengthening MIL-STD-130 compliance long-term.
