Microscan acquires Siemens UID vision product line
On September 15, Microscan, Inc. of Renton, Washington announced the purchase of Siemens� Machine Vision business, formerly Acuity CiMatrix, headquartered in Nashua, New Hampshire. This acquisition strengthens the already powerful range of Microscan�s UID scanner and verifier solutions.
ID Integration was the #1 reseller of the Siemens UID scanners and verifiers. We have successfully integrated their products into turnkey UID solutions for both DoD suppliers and military depots. The extremely versatile UID Compliance Verifiers (Models LDP and DPM) make verification of even difficult UID Data Matrix markings an easy proposition.
The Siemens Data Matrix hand held scanners (HawkEye Models 40, 40T, 45 and 45T) offer superior built in lighting, decoding ability and versatility. These too are now part of Microscan�s world-class range of UID vision offerings.
A price increase has been announced on certain Microscan UID verifier and scanner products that goes into effect January 1, 2009. However, Microscan will honor orders placed by year end 2008.
ID Integration invites both existing and new customers to review their UID Data Matrix verification and scanner needs and to place orders before the end of 2008. Out experienced Field Engineers can install both the scanners and verifiers and train your staff to gain the maximum benefits from these extremely robust and versatile systems.
World Class UID Nameplates and LabelsDo you need a UID nameplate or label? You would probably look on the Internet and pick a supplier. Easy, but did you pick a good one?
Jet City Laser has been in the two dimensional Data Matrix nameplate and label business since well before UID was mandated in 2004. We have probably made more Data Matrix nameplates and labels than any other job shop in the world.
Uniquely, we offer a very wide range of nameplate and label marking technologies which include:
After making the UID nameplates or labels, Jet City conducts a 100% verification and data syntax validation test to insure they meet UID MIL-STD-130 requirements. The test results are supplied with each shipment on a CD.
Additionally, the verification and validation data are 100% archived for future reference or retrieval.

Sikorsky Template LibrarySikorsky Aircraft Corporation of Stratford, Connecticut, a unit of United Technologies, is a major contributor to our defense effort with their Blackhawk, Superhawk, Skyhawk and H-53 military helicopters. Sikorsky is very committed to UID and is applying markings in its own plants as well as requiring UID markings to be applied on parts made by its suppliers.
Sikorsky has created a unique UID marking specification, SS9141 which is very specific and demanding. To assist customers who need to create UID markings in accordance with SS9141, ID Integration has utilized the advanced scripting capability of Seagull Scientific�s Bartender software to create a SS9141 UID Wizard. This single file supports the creation of UID labels for the 4 different physical layouts defined in SS9141. Numerous built-in quality control algorithms provide assurance of proper UID data syntax. Sikorsky and supplier parts are supported via a common �Prompt-At-Print-Time� user interface.
The SS9141 UID Wizard is but one of the UID enablers included as part of a typical ID Integration UID turnkey solution. More information about the SS9141 UID Wizard can be found at: http://http//www.id-integration.com/docs/papers/PP-BT-SIK-01.pdf
ID Integration has installed a very wide variety of UID marking technologies at customer sites, frequently as a self contained marking cart such as those shown at http://www.id-integration.com/docs/papers/PP-MC-IDI-01.pdf
As part of a typical installation, ID Integration conducts thorough training on all aspects of the hardware and software including;
ID Integration offers a �refresher� training after a Defense supplier has been in UID nameplate/label production for about two months. We and our customers have found that a day of refresher training addresses the questions and problems that on site operators have encountered during their production ramp up. This retraining enables full utilization of the UID production equipment and insures that world class, error free UID nameplates/labels are produced, verified and registered.
