Did you hear? Microscan just celebrated its 100th patent! These 100 innovations in auto ID, machine vision, and lighting have made Microscan a leading provider of technology that responds to the unique and diverse needs of our customers. Now passing the 100-patent milestone, our engineers haven’t slowed down development of precise and simple solutions for complex barcode and machine vision applications.

The Microscan innovation machine kept humming in September with the award of our 101st patent – US 8,011,583. This patent is used in our UID Direct Part Mark Verification systems and covers the control of the lighting used in that product. The lighting, in combination with the square guide marks superimposed on the image, makes the Microscan UID DPM Verifier easy to use while obtaining the most repeatable and highest grades for DPM symbols. Congratulations to Microscan inventor Jason Lee and the entire Verifier team for this achievement!
