New Technology Merges Code Reading and Marker Dot Inspection in Tire Manufacturing

Published on October 21, 2013

Please register to download White Paper

The longstanding practice of reading bar codes to track and trace the provenance of tires has been joined in importance by the need to verify the presence and quality of marker dots.
