Dixon batteries started a project to add traceability to all their batteries. ASA was asked for a solution, and we recommend applying a laser engraved 2D data matrix code on each battery top and body.
Johan from ASA designed a Laser Marking Carousel which will be able to mark and verify most of the different sizes batteries. The carousel comprised of 9 holders which can house 9 large batteries tops or bodies or 18 small batteries tops or bodies.
Please watch the video below to see how the carousel operates.
In the next phase, ASA and Gary Mumford from GS Development integrated the Laser system into their backend traceability system to account for each part marked or scrapped.
