Coding and Vision: Keys to Traceability

In order to complement technological advances, direct part marking and machine vision have continuously evolved to satisfy consumer demands and industry regulations. This article highlights the capabilities and importance of coding, marking and vision and how, as a combined force, they ensure complete product traceability within both traditional manufacturing and, more recently, in the logistics arena.

THE RISE OF TRACEABILITY

As consumer demands continue to spiral upwards, and with a blanket of stringent legislation and regulations covering all areas of manufacturing, the need for a product to be traced from ‘cradle to grave’ has been of paramount importance for some time. This not only appeases the regulators, but delights the end users who would receive their products, supplied as per the agreed requirements.

Before long, the buzzwords of ‘coding’ and ‘traceability’were on everyone’s lips, and the increase in machine vision usage became...

Time lapse photography to demonstrate the potential antimicrobial abilities of Dycem contamination control flooring

Dycem

A defined volume of bioluminescent reporter bacteria was deposited onto 20 mm x 20 mm coupons of Dycem flooring, vinyl tile and ITW Alma tacky mat. Through monitoring of bacterial bioluminescence, metabolic inhibition was observed on all three surfaces however the effect occurred more rapidly on Dycem flooring than on vinyl or ITW Alma. Recovery counts after three hours of exposure to the floor surfaces showed between a 65% and 100% decrease in the number of viable organisms recovered from Dycem flooring compared to controls. On vinyl and ITW Alma flooring, there were slight increases in the number of viable survivors recovered compared to controls. Dycem flooring inhibited the metabolic activity and reduced the number of viable survivors recovered of Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium DT104 pGLITE. It remains unclear as to whether this effect is attributable to the impregnated biocide or rapid drying of the inoculum on this surface.
