Bar code verifiers make sure that the bar codes
that are printed are readable, have good contrast,
and comply fully with the parameters of the bar code
symbology. Bar codes are typically verified using an ÒAÓ to ÒFÓ or
PASS/FAIL grading system.
Verifying the quality of readability of your bar
code is essential when you are printing new packaging
or labels for a product you are shipping to some retail
outlets or distributors. A non-readable bar code could
mean fines or return of the entire product lot.
