The 2D Direct Marking Guideline, initially released in 2003, provides the latest information for the marking and reading of Data Matrix and/or QR Code symbols that use inkjet, laser etched or dot peen technology. The updated document will give the best practices for 2D direct marking and include its most recent standards for AIM DPM Quality Guideline 1/2006, ISO 15415, MIL-STD-130N, Applicable NASA HD-BK-6003, NASA-STD-6002 and SAE AS9132.

This guideline presents items to consider when evaluating marking projects such as: features and benefits of laser, inkjet and dot-peen; qualities of each symbology; reading techniques; mark quality verification; emerging technologies; and code placement techniques.
