Q: What is your handheld scanner of choice when decoding 2D DPM lasered directly on metal? – Mike C.
A: According to Camcode’s engineering manager, in our experience, we have found that the best handheld scanner is the CR6022-C500 reader, manufactured by Code.
They easily read low contrast and color barcodes, which is especially the case with direct part marking (DPM). This includes laser etching, dot peen and embossed codes, as it has built-in illumination.
