Axicon Auto ID is a world leader in barcode verification, having developed and manufactured our own verifiers since 1989. Axicon verifiers are used across the globe and are fully compliant with the ISO/IEC standards for linear and matrix barcodes. These verifiers are used to measure the quality of printed barcodes.
Established in 1979 as a provider of high-quality barcode images for the printing industry, we still specialise in producing barcode images, and barcode labels, as well as a range of barcode verification equipment. We also provide a range of services to support our clients, including training, consultancy, and barcode verification.
Axicon develops, manufactures and maintains its range of barcode verifiers at the company headquarters, north of Oxford. Our range of barcode verifiers is distributed through a network of international partners across the globe, and our clients include major manufacturers and retailers worldwide.
We have also always been involved in the creation and updating of UK and international standards for identification and barcoding. Our staff have contributed to the work of GS1 UK, as well as BSI’s IST/34 committee which helps develop the ISO/IEC standards concerning barcodes and verification. We also contribute to GS1’s Barcode Technology Group and the development of the GS1 General Specifications.
We have specialised in all aspects of barcode excellence for over 30 years and the name Axicon is now synonymous with barcode quality.
The Axicon 15000 series verifiers have been designed to read both two-dimensional and linear barcodes. The system uses a special array of LEDs and a CCD-based sensor to capture each barcode image before it is analysed. It is able to verify multiple barcodes in the same field of view, whether they are 2D or linear codes, and the user sees the results for each barcode by selecting the relevant barcode on the screen.
QR Code, GS1 QR Code, Data Matrix and GS1 DataMatrix symbols can all be verified, as can any EAN/UPC, ITF-14, GS1-128, Code 128, or Code 39 symbol.
The Axicon 15000 series verifiers are powered solely from the USB2 port of a computer, so it is portable when used with a laptop computer.
