The U.S. Department of the Navy DON IUID Journal recently highlighted Camcode UID bar code asset tags in a recent publication.
The Camcode Division of Horizons Incorporated, a global leader in bar code solutions for item unique identification (UID) applications, recently contributed an article on UID compliance methods, featured in the U.S. Department of the Navy’s (DON) IUID Journal.
The purpose of the DON IUID Journal is to help the DON community achieve success in its UID compliance efforts. In the article, Camcode UID Program Manager, Randy Uveges, gives his perspective on Legacy Ship Construct 1 and Construct 2 IUID tags, as well as provides lessons learned from his time conducting ship IUID marking projects on 10 USNS vessels.
Uveges writes, “…bar coding of assets has led to dramatic increases in productivity, accountability, and accuracy over the last decade,” and that the Navy’s involvement with IUID will have a positive impact. Uveges also suggests using Camcode’s Metalphoto® anodized aluminum UID labels. “Not only are these UID labels made of the same material as all the other ship placards specified by the Navy, but they have been proven to last over time,” he says.
Camcode’s experience in military labeling dates back to the 1950s, when the U.S. Navy began using Metalphoto labels and data plates (from Camcode’s parent Horizons Inc.) on its vessels. Today, Camcode is the most experienced label provider serving the UID market, with UID labels to satisfy even tactical applications with a zero-reflection requirement and applications requiring extreme sand and gravel resistance.
Founded in 1979, Camcode is a recognized worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of durable pre-print barcode labels for asset tracking and unique identification (UID) applications. Camcode’s asset tags improve the efficiency of asset tracking systems by eliminating errors caused during manual data collection and increasing data acquisition speed. Camcode’s Metalphoto® anodized aluminum bar code labels, premium plastic label constructions, and proprietary coating technologies satisfy the most demanding applications.
