The universal code reader ODV120 permits comprehensive tracing of individual components. Product tracing is particularly important in the automotive supply sector.

If a fault occurs in a vehicle, such as the PCB in the control electronics of a braking system, the manufacturer should be able to quickly identify the relevant components and be able to trace their entire production process. An exact definition of the specific vehicles that were equipped with the faulty components is also necessary. Potential costs for a product recall can be significantly reduced.

To ensure traceability, every single component is provided with labels containing individual data sets, such as item number, production location, time, date, or serial number.

While a stamp is applying the labels, the universal code reader ODV120 simultaneously reads the codes. With the help of optical identification, products can be uniquely identified before entering the pick-and-place machines, or before and after specific test steps.
