Omron Microscan Global Business Development Manager for Electronics, Christoph Wimmer, introduces barcode reading and machine vision solutions on display at the IPC APEX 2016 tradeshow in Las Vegas, Nevada. Omron Microscan's MicroHAWK® Barcode Readers are integrated into a demo of Omron Microscan's PanelScan® PCB Traceability System to illustrate in-line PCB identification for worry-free traceability of components despite line changes resulting in new codes on PCBs, new code or mark locations, different PCB colors, and other changes.
Old DPMs never die, nor do they fade away. At least they’re not supposed to meet their demise before the part carrying them goes out of service. One of the major challenges of using DPMs (short for “direct part marks”) to trace products and parts lies in the need for permanence. If a part is to be incorporated into a brand-new Boeing 737 and the aircraft is expected to stay in service for several decades, then the DPM on that part needs to last several decades as well. This is known as “cradle-to-grave traceability” – a fundamental requirement for the sake of quality control and public safety.
