QR Code & Data Matrix Labels

qr code labelsAsset Label Identification for Small Parts, Tools, and Instruments 

Small assets can be hard to track with many asset labels being too big and/or not providing enough information.

The demand for more information especially by industry to trace components/materials and their origin has led to a two-dimensional matrix code which can contain 100’s of digits/letters being introduced some years ago - the traditional barcode will only hold 8-10 characters/digits. These codes are therefore used when a large amount of data is required.

Data Matrix Asset labels use matrix codes that have a large data capacity, high density, and automatic error correction and even if partially damaged the code can still be read.

QR Codes

QR CodesQR codes (quick response) are seen everywhere now on: posters, magazines, products, shop windows and more. These codes are used to provide customers with a quick method of accessing information about your organisation, company or products. They are also used for asset tracking when the code contains a serial and/or asset number.

Size required is an important factor as the code often has to be readable by the consumer’s smartphone and the definition and size of the modules (the little black squares) are therefore most important in order that they don’t fall below the resolution limit for cameras or phones.

QR codes are also used over a much wider range of applications, including commercial tracking, entertainment, transport ticketing, product/loyalty marketing by using the QR code decoder which is now a mobile app on most devices

Unlike one-dimensional barcodes which were designed to be mechanically scanned by a narrow beam of light, a QR code is detected by a 2-dimensional digital image sensor and then digitally analysed by a processor. The processor locates the three distinctive squares at the corners of the QR code image, using a smaller square (or multiple squares) near the fourth corner to normalise the image for size, orientation, and angle of viewing. The small dots throughout the QR code are then converted to binary numbers and validated with an error-correcting code.

Data Matrix or QR Code Labels

Dantech Data Matrix or QR labels are printed black onto 3M white polyester with a universal, powerful adhesive which will stick to most surfaces including plastics, powder coating - even slightly oily metal surfaces.

These asset labels are also available printed on aluminium foil, which can withstand high and low, freezing temperatures.

Labels supplied on rolls. Printed black, inc. sequential numbering - ONE sequence.
