How to develop traceability solutions for Industry 4.0
With greater product liability, rising quality standards and more complex customer requirements, traceability is a subject that is increasingly important and developing into a fundamental prerequisite to be able to conduct business at all in future.
Industry 4.0 technologies provide companies not just with the possibility of quickly and systematically determining errors, but actually avoiding errors during the manufacturing processes and thus improving quality. The basis for traceability is the marking and identification of products.
Marking and data collection systems are an important component of this. These depend on safe solutions that ensure traceability across the entire product lifecycle. That is why this whitepaper focuses on laser marking as a permanent marking procedure and the safe visual identification and analysis of codes.
