2L inc’s PRO 3 Engraving Software Program for producing 2D Data Matrix Barcodes with Standard CNC Machines is now available.
Source 2L inc. - Hudson, Massachusetts. 2L inc. announced today that it is accepting orders for its' new PRO 3 CAD/CAM Engraving Software Program.
The PRO 3 Engraving Software Program creates G-code programs for producing 2D Data Matrix Barcodes on 3 or 4 axis cnc milling machines or multi axis lathes. It allows users to mark directly on parts (DPM – Direct Part Marking) using standard 2L engraving tools and the cnc equipment they already have. There is no special equipment or machines required to begin engraving the barcodes.
Being able to produce the engraved 2D Data Matrix Barcodes along with the human readable text directly on the cnc machining centers already being used to produce the components can significantly reduce manufacturing costs. Using a separate single standalone engraving machine to produce 2D Data Matrix Barcodes can cause manufacturing bottlenecks and add additional handling and setup time.
The PRO 3 Engraving Software Program is a full featured, simple to use drawing program that produces standard G-code nc files that are compatible with virtually any cnc controller. This brings the ability to produce 2D Data Matrix Barcodes into the reach of any machine shop or manufacturing facility that uses cnc equipment.
The program allows creating precise engraving layouts using multiple fonts, drawn shapes, lines and incremental serial numbers along with 2D Data Matrix Barcodes. The engraving layouts can be precisely located using reference geometry or guidelines. The layout orientation, alignment, spacing and size of multiple instances of text are all easily controlled.
The 2D Data Matrix Barcodes can be produced using any standard 2L engraving tool with either a rigid toolholder or a Spring Loaded Engraving Tool.
"We are very pleased to expand the capabilities of our engraving software programs and respond to our customers requests for simple to use programs that address challenging engraving opportunities", stated the company spokesman.
"Our new program offers a complete easy to use solution for both the daily straightforward engraving jobs as well as the much more difficult engraving such as 4 axis engraving or programming multi axis lathes", added the spokesman.
"The 2L Engraving Software programs have proven to be so uncomplicated to use that novice cnc operators can engrave 2D Data Matrix Barcodes as well as standard engraving operations, which we feel can significantly add to both the appearance of the products and the company’s bottom line" he finalized.
