Cognex Corporation has announced the availability of a report entitled, Direct Part Mark Considerations: Verification. This free report explains why the quality of a direct marked 2D code is so critical to the success of lifetime part traceability, and addresses how manufacturers can assess mark quality and control the marking process.

The report offers guidance on choosing the right quality metrics to ensure that part marks meet a level of quality that will help ensure fast and reliable reading of codes that have been dot peened, etched, or otherwise formed directly on surfaces of manufactured items. This fact-packed report explains how verification is used, discusses verification standards and challenges, and provides implementation guidelines to achieve meaningful and consistent results.
