2D Data Matrix - 1D & 2D Barcodes
A 1d (one dimensional) barcode represents data in the widths and the spacing of parallel lines. 1d barcodes are commonly used to mark VIN numbers in the automotive industry.
A 2d (two dimensional) barcode also represents data and comes in forms of squares, rectangles and dot patterns within an image matrix. 2d barcodes are often referred to as a 2d matrix or 2d data matrix.
Barcode Reading & Verifying Systems
Utilizing 2d data matrix marking for part tracking and traceability is only half the battle. Having the right reliable ID reader is the other. That is why Schmidt has partnered with Cognex Corporation to be able to supply you with a complete marking, reading and verifying part marking system.
Barcodes are easy to read when they are a black code marked onto a white background. But it reality, most barcodes can be a challenge to read on certain parts. Cognex Corporation has optimized their readers to ensure continuously high read rates of 1d and 2d barcodes, even in the most challenging direct part mark applications.
