Metalcraft announced the ability to print QR codes on RFID and barcode labels and nameplates, adding the ability to link from the durable asset labels to product information and other web-based resources. QR (short for Quick Response) codes are two-dimensional matrix barcodes encoding text, URLs or other data and readable by most camera phones. Metalcraft will generate and print QR codes like other durable printed elements – using subsurface printing, curable inks and other methods to create lasting identification in most environments.
Users can track warranty information or connect to a manual or video detailing operating or service instructions, always having the most current information available. Companies may also save money and energy by replacing paper documentation with QR codes.
