Assessing The Ink-Jet Encodability

GS 1 DataMatrix codes are usually applied on pharmaceutical cartons by means of drop-on-demand (dod) printers. PTS has designed as special test stand to assess the quality and rub resistance of these codes after short drying periods. The cartonboard sample is printed with a DataMatrix code under optimal conditions and counter-printed in a rub resistance tester after a specified period. Parameter variations in the rub resistance tester and the verification of print results provide accurate information about the drying time and quality of DataMatrix codes. The print is verified offline in accordance with ISO/IEC 15415.
