| Data Matrix
has been with us all for over 15 years but is only now coming into
regular use. Data Matrix is a set of 'dots' set in a square or
rectangular formation. Data Matrix allows us to use a lot more data
over the traditional barcode formats. Data Matrix allows is also far
smaller in scale, there by assisting in label and packaging design.
These 'dots' can be read by Barcode scanners or vision cameras.
| Leafus, Cofuex and Vision Automation are just
some of the leading vision companies that we have worked with. full
sample trials and scanning readability would be carried out in the
early stages of a project.

dot matrix code.
There is a low tolerance associated with 2D/Data
Matrix codes which make it the ideal choice for product coding.
Bar Code Validation
| The dimno C-Series Bar code Validation Kit - an
application of the C-Series Interface Assistant. Designed to guarantee
the highest quality and most accurate bar codes recognised throughout
eliminates the risk of incurring large fines by the distribution
centres for product codes that fail to scan. Configurable percentage
acceptance values detect any poor codes and warns of a reduction in
Clear alarm status minimises the risk of codes
being printed that do not scan, ensuring that distribution centres have
100% scan ability
Automatic Printer Purge minimises operator intervention to maintain
constant code quality and reduce the chance of dissatisfied customers.
The Learn and Compare feature ensures that the correct bar code has
been applied to the product, thereby eliminating incorrect coding, and
giving peace of mind.
Simple to Use
The auto-set up of the scanner and simple configuration interface
eliminates complicated and costly installation and fault finding
- Configurable bar code quality tolerance levels
to trigger the appropriate warning events.
- The warning events can be set to auto-purge the
printer, flash the warning beacon and activate the line-stop function
- Tower beacon to clearly indicate code read
status. Green signals a good code read, amber a poor read and red a
failure. The blue beacon indicates that the device is learning a code
- When in compare mode, warning output will
signal that the scanned code does not match the expected code. This
eliminates incorrectly coded products entering the distribution chain.
The interface assistnat can be used in busy
industrial applications to provide easy integration of the C-Series
printers with other control equipment. It provides an enhanced
interface between the C-Series and devices such as PLC's and RFID
readers and writers.
- Binary message selection. Over 100 messages
within the printer can be selected by remote electrical inputs.
- External data capture. Connects to other
intelligent devices enabling variable information such as data strings
and weights to be printed onto products
- Low ink-level warning. Using the beacon, the
interface assistant can transmit the low ink-level warning signal from
the C-Series ink base and provide an effective visual warning of the
- Remote counter reset. When used with
computer-generated messages, pressing the reset button will zero the
printed counter - ideal for tracing production quantities.
- also includes an internal, non-volatile data
storage area, an auto-ranging power supply, a relay output and NPN or
PNP input / outputs

21 CFR11 Part 2 - Gamp
| Domino now offers Gamp and 21 CFR11 Part 2 product
certification for the CIJ and laser range. These can be purchased with
a new machine or as a retrofit for existing machines. Our engineers are
trained to carry out the procedures and this can generally be done in a
Codico can assist in the design of XYZ movement
for our printing heads or the products we wish to code. This can allow
us to print a lot of information on one product or multiple products.
We can work with PLC controllers and pneumatic and mechanical cylinders
with programmable stepper motors.

Track and Trace | Electronic Product Codes
Codico is now working very closely with Domino's Integrated Solutions Group to bring to the Irish market a total Track and Trace Solution to gaurantee a products authenticity and to know where it is in the suppply chain.
Working with GS1 (Global Standards One Ireland) we are now in a position to quote for the most difficult integrated solutions. These can incorporate Lasers, Inkjet, Thermal Transfer, Vision Cameras, Software, Web and Mobile Architecture; all to track and trace your product from raw material to end user.
We can harness the mobile phone technology to photograph and read a data matrix code, upload the information to a server, and get an immediate response to confirm that the product is either an original or a fake and where it should be in the supply chain.
