When people ask me what I do for a living and I say “I sell industrial identification equipment and solutions for traceability” it’s not unusual to get a blank look and immediately asked “What’s that?”
As soon as I mention VIN identification and car recalls they get it and we talk further about the many places that marking is around us.
Now that more and more parts are marked with the addition of bar codes, organizations often struggle with how to capture and use the data. Smart devices and bar code scanners that interface with databases allow quicker capture of the data.
As industry requires marking more often, I must admit that marking and traceability of products has never been more exciting.
How can I help you mark your part and capture the details?
