The DataMan 500 image-based bar-code reader from Cognex is designed to achieve higher read rates, offer improved on-line visualization, and provide better reliability than current laser scanners. Using the IDMax code-reading software, the system reaches higher read rates by reading the 1-D bar codes that laser readers cannot read, including damaged, distorted, blurred, scratched, low-height, and low-contrast codes. The system processes images at up to 1000 frames per second and can read codes in any orientation, 2-D codes such as Data Matrix and QR, and multiple codes in the same image. It has no moving parts so is more reliable than laser scanners, and it allows users to see what the reader sees, either live on a monitor or via image archiving for later review.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
