UID Stimulus Plan: ID Integration's
Provides Immediate Return on Investment.
Brigadier General William "Tim" Crosby (PEO, Aviation) in his keynote address at the recent Denver UID Forum, summarized his strategy for evaluating project value as "Does it take the burden off the soldier?".
For military and commercial users alike, ID Integration is reducing the workload of UID implementation from that of a "job" to simpler "tasks". Our Smart-ScanTM scanners lead the way to these promised process efficiencies, allowing users to do more with less, and in less time.Smart-ScanTM advantages include:
The barcode scanner is likely the lowest cost item within any UID implementation plan. Yet, its usage is also the quickest means of achieving actual ROI through barcode data automation. Contact IDI today for a demonstration of these value-added Smart-ScanTM capabilities.

NEW TECHNOLOGIES & SERVICES
IDI Introduces New Ink Silk-Screen Material
Our unique thermal stencil process for UID marking has been used for several years by customers who require a non-invasive, non-adhesive, low-weight mark. Yet, its increasing popularity has sometimes stretched limits on material availability.
ID Integration has recently introduced a new stencil material that lowers the cost of this process by over 50%, and greatly improves material availability to both existing and new customers.
Contact IDI to request more information and sample stencils.
IDI creates Dot Peen support via Bartender Software
IDI has extended our Bartender Template Library to include support for Dot Peen marking hardware. This implementation provides direct coupling of Dot Peen marking systems to external database products such as Oracle, SAP, SQL, Access, Excel, ODBC, or simple text files.
Although initially developed for SIC Marking hardware, the implementation is currently being extended to other non-Windows Print Driver devices such as YAG lasers.
New Shop Floor Interface to IDI Marking Systems
The growing popularity of IDI's desktop & MIMS Carts has resulted in the development of a simplified user interface to the hardware and software elements of our turn-key Marking systems. Regardless of PC-skill level, we're providing users with the quickest possible path towards accomplishing UID marking & verification tasks.
The ID Integration interface employs built-in Windows OS and browser tools to provide the quickest possible access to hundreds of files including marking templates, verification software, and support documentation (manuals, MSDS, training videos, etc).
These tools are provided with every IDI Marking System purchased with on-site installation & training. Contact IDI today for a system quotation & demonstration of these interface tools.
Enhanced Sikorsky UID Template Library
IDI has recently enhanced its UID Template Library to include support for the following Sikorsky Nameplate Specifications: SS9141 / SS9142 / SS9143 / SS9074.
Customers who need to create UID markings in accordance with these specs can begin production immediately. ID Integration has utilized the advanced scripting capability of Seagull Scientific’s Bartender software to create numerous built-in quality control algorithms which provide assurance of proper UID data syntax. Sikorsky and supplier parts are supported via a common ‘Prompt-At-Print-Time’ user interface.
The Sikorsky Template Library is only one of numerous UID tools included as part of an ID Integration turn-key solution. More information about the Sikorsky Template Library can be found at: http://www.id-integration.com/docs/papers/PPBTSIK-01.pdf .
