MIL-STD-130 Marking Hardware Solutions: Thermal Label Printer Systems
MIL-STD-130 marking standards require that property of the United States government include a 2D Data Matrix code that is readable by barcode scanners. These codes contain more information than standard barcodes and as such they require printing by high quality Thermal Label Printer Systems from approved IUID vendors such as Intermec, Zebra and Brady. The labels meet IUID compliance standards.
RFID enabled Thermal Label Printer Systems can print 2D Data Matrix codes, as well as be compatible with RFID-containing label stock, that may be affixed to government owned property.
RFID labels will improve asset tracking within the Department of Defense (DoD) and are required for many items in order to facilitate the tracking of shipments in accordance with MIL-STD-129. Thermal Label Printer Systems provide high performance for government contractors and manufacturers in need of efficient label production in order to quickly and successfully meet IUID compliance.
In order to achieve successful IUID compliance with the DoD, contractors and manufacturers should consider their unique requirements before choosing an approved MIL-STD-130 marking method. ID Integration, Inc. can provide consultations to customers that require hardware and software solutions for Item Unique Identification.
