For traceability and identification purposes, 2D codes are now applied to products and components using a wide variety of methods such as laser marking/ labeling, needling or printing. This is generally referred to as DPM (Direct Part Marking). In order to guarantee the quality and legibility of 2D barcodes in particular, there are different standards such as AIM/DPM or ISO/IEC, which in some cases define different quality characteristics for the assessment of codes. AIM/DPM aims for directly marked bar-codes, while ISO/IEC 15415 covers printed 2D Codes.
