Barcode printing on the PCB

Barcode printing on the PCB | 6 March, 1999

I am looking for a barcode machine/printer which will print barcode directly on printed circuit boards with non transferable white ink. This has to be done before PCB assembly. Any help will be appreciated. Please reply directly to my E-mail.

Manufacturers who have to mark barcodes onto PCB's without secondary application of pressure sensitive labels can etch it on, screen it on, inkjet it on, use laser marking, or a combination of those. Using a laser marker to write a code into a label sized screened (white legend ink)field by ablating into the contrasting coating seems to be the most popular choice. One could inkjet over this white field as well. Some of the new 2D bar codes can be read with minimal contrast by the new CCD readers and may not require this white field at all. All or none of these methods may be successfull for you depending on: Make of reader, type of code, board material, type of solder mask, required cure times and added cost of the screening (on a non-legend(ed) PCB. It must be an engineered solution for success. We make PCB marking platforms for all these coding scenarios.
