Fast, direct, flexible – digitalisation needs an tool that can keep up
In the Smart Factory, every workpiece is given a Data Matrix Code. The system can use this to call up which path the part should take through the systems and how it should be processed. Transport systems and processing stations adhere to these instructions. For this to work, the production requires a highly flexible and easy-to-control tool – the laser. The codes are made by a marking laser – clearly legible on all surfaces and with camera-supported image processing during the marking process. The code contains all other information to ensure complete further processing and traceability.
