Cognex to Host DPM Identification Seminars

Natick, MA, March 2, 2006-Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ - CGNX), the world's leading supplier of machine vision systems, vision sensors and industrial ID readers, today announced that the company will host a series of free DPM ID seminars. The Understanding Direct Part Mark Identification half-day events cover the most important factors to consider when implementing DPM ID for part traceability in the automotive, aerospace, healthcare, electronics and defense industries.

Anyone with a DPM application in the assembly and parts supply chain will appreciate this highly informative seminar. Participants will learn how to implement a reliable DPM traceability program that includes marking, reading, verification and process control. The program contains valuable information to help manufacturers achieve DPM ID requirements and traceability goals.

Attendees will walk away with a thorough understanding of:
  • The benefits of DPM traceability
  • Various marking methods
  • The difference between reading and verification
  • Code "readability" for dot peen, laser, electrochemical etch or other types of marks on manufactured items
  • Department of Defense UID implementation

    Participants are encouraged to bring sample parts and try out the new DataManTM 7500 handheld ID reader that reads all printed and DPM codes regardless of marking method, part material, shape or surface texture. The seminars start this month and run through June in major U.S. and Canadian cities.
