Part identity recognition

I am needing to be able to read tube numbers prior to testing them in a semiautomated testing system. Typically, the tubes are stamped on the ends (they are thick enough for stamping), and I would like to read the number and input it into the UT data report. Painting is not possible, nor is labeling, though some sort of barcoding on the end may be possible. Are you aware of a source for this kind of system?

Re: Part identity recognition
David, you may want to consider laser engraving (sometimes called laser marking.) We have a system by Epilog Laser that we use to mark serial numbers and other info on the ODs of tube ends. I know you stated you need to mark on the tube wall. That may be tough due to the limitation of 8" or so of height in the engraver. Are you able to mark the ODs instead?

We use the system to permanently mark calibration tube standards, test blocks, and other reference standards.

Re: Part identity recognition
Dear Colleagues,

OCR (Optical Character Recognition) enables numbers etc. to be read and converted to a text so that David's requirement is met. Commmercial systems may be available.

Regards.
