Durable Marking Data Matrix Codes According to GS1 Standard

"The sale of plagiarisms costs the machinery and plant manufacturing industries several billion dollars every year," said a MARKATOR spokesperson. "Next to the lost sales revenues, there are also the quality defects because of the product copies. Very often production downtimes or risks to human health and safety are the consequences. Through durable and tamper-proof marking it is possible to identify the manufacturer and to track the batch number, production date, production plant, etc."

Due to the reasons mentioned above, hardly a product leaves the industrial production plant without being marked with a character or number string or even with a two dimensional data matrix code.

GS1 Germany is a private sector organization and has set itself the task of creating a global standard that can guarantee a continuous traceability of products.

The product serial number together with a global article number works, according to GS1 Germany, like a passport for products. With this number it is possible to track precisely where the product was produced and which value-added chain and logistic chain it has passed. Using this number, the whole life cycle of a product can be reproduced and in case of a necessary recall campaign, it is easy to track the product.

The GS1 system is an international coordinated tool for complete and unique identification. As the demand on GS1 conform codes is increasing, marking systems manufacturer MARKATOR Manfred Borries GmbH was motivated to deal with this subject.

For durable markings according to the GS1 standard, MARKATOR offers a wide product range and experience in the area of the durable and tamper-proof marking of workpieces of different kinds.

The product range covers several solutions to mark workpieces of different kinds and are durable and tamper-proof. Various kinds of materials can be marked, from plastics, aluminum and construction steel to hardened steel with a hardness up to 63 HRC. "Whether a marking system to integrate in an automatic production line, a table marking system to mark small workpieces on a bench-top work place or a flexible hand-held marking system to mark big and unmovable pieces directly on site, MARKATOR has a solution for every marking requirement," said the spokesperson.
