NATICK, Mass., May 17 -- Cognex Corp., a supplier of machine vision systems and vision sensors, has introduced IDMax data matrix code reading software. Based on Cognex's PatMax technology, IDMax is designed for direct part mark identification (DPMI), which involves directly marking parts with permanent 2-D data matrix codes, then reading those codes quickly and reliably throughout the production process.
   Cognex said assembly and parts suppliers to the Department of Defense, as well as automotive, aerospace, medical device and electronics manufacturers are increasingly implementing DPMI for error-proofing to ensure that the appropriate manufacturing processes are performed in the correct sequence on the right parts. It said DPMI is also a vital tool in creating a history of a part, for use later in supply chain management and repair depots.

"DPMI is a challenging application, requiring fast and reliable reading of data matrix codes marked directly on the toughest surfaces, such as metal, glass, ceramic and plastic," said Justin Testa, senior vice president of ID products for Cognex. "These codes can become distorted due to the manufacturing process, and many are poorly marked with missing or inconsistent features. IDMax tolerates these distortions and achieves the high read rates that are vital to the success of any part tracking application."

IDMax code reading software is available now on the new industrial-grade Cognex In-Sight 5100, 5400 and 3400 vision sensors. In addition to reading Data Matrix codes, In-Sight vision sensors can read 1-D barcodes, RSS/composite symbologies and an extensive and expanding list of industry standard codes. These In-Sight vision sensors also include a full library of image processing and analysis tools for inspection, gauging and assembly verification applications. The unique vision spreadsheet and In-Sight Explorer software make application development and network administration fast and simple.
