Bar Code Scanning

Our bar code scanner interface for CNCs provides an error free method of communicating production data to a CNC asset. Such an interface can be used to communicate various production data to the CNC controller, including:

  • Part Code
  • Batch Number
  • Batch Size

This information can be populated into macro variables on the CNC controller and used for a variety of functions such as:

  • Part Programme Selection: Part programmes, which reside in CNC memory, can be selected based on the information   contained in the CNC macro variables.
  • Component Variant Selection
  • Direct Part Marking: Information contained in the macro variables, such as part code or batch number, can be   marked directly onto parts within the machining process rather than necessitating an external marking process.
  • 2D Bar Coding: 2D bar codes can be generated and marked directly onto parts, within the machining process,   rather than requiring an external marking process.
  • DNC: Secure downloading of validated part programmes from a central server.
  • MTConnect / OEE:  “Binding” CNC status information with part codes or batch numbers, reflecting the true cost   of component production
