injection molded part, ABS
Standard: 10x10 Datamatrix
Size: 2.5 mm x 2.5 mm
imZERT barcode markings are applied to the part already during injection molding - no need for fur-ther work cycles, post-processing, or equipment. No ink, sticker, label or direct part engraving, avoiding any risk of contamination.
In-mold-markings ensure parts can trace to individual molds or cavities. Critical information on the part re-moves doubt during quality control, sorting, assembly, customer inter-action, multi-tier process chains, and in case of counterfeits.
Our barcode markings are microstructure textures provided on mold inserts without any moving parts, reducing risks and overall cost of marking parts. Durability pre-trials show more than 100.000 shots without any degradation.
Our microstructure textures have industry-leading fidelity, for the highest quality of any mold marking, This ensures machine-readable barcodes, even on smaller plastic parts! Rigorous process control ensures consistent outcomes.
Direct Part Marking during injection molding

Marking is complex and has risk?
Often parts are marked AFTER they have been molded, requiring complex machinery and costly maintenance.
imZERT is simple and durable.
Traceability link is broken?
Medical devices, auto parts, mechanical or electronic components are often produced without marking, relying on packaging labels, which are often lost.
imZERT places SKU on the part, so it can't get lost.
Small parts can't be marked?
imZERT solves this challenge - our inserts can be placed with high accuracy in the mold. The very high optical contrast of imZERT ensures effective barcode scans, even for small parts.
Does traceability help?
Failing mold cavities, efficient sorting, SKU for assembly and filling, Quality Control checks, anti-counterfeit.
imZERT is traceability from molding to recycling.
No foreign materials or contamination. Microstructures are as safe as any surface texture.
Barcodes are integral surface texture, remaining on product after packaging is discarded.
High Contrast = Brightest barcodes
Barcode markings are applied DURING molding, not after, requiring no machinery or consumables.
Vision and smartphones recognize imZERT barcodes, even on white polymer.
Keeps validated molding parameters
imZERT markings replicate within normal molding parameter ranges.
Eliminates risk of equipment down-time, and of migration of unwanted substances.
Reliable and Durable
The correct barcode is placed accurately on part every time, eliminating expensive alignment problems.
imZERT mold inserts have so far demonstrated 150.000+ mold cycles without detectable wear.
Part ID, Mold ID, Cavity ID, Assembly ID, Quality ID, OEM ID, UDI. GS1 compatibility. Batch/Lot ID.
All plastics and elastomers. Any barcode standard and content. Any size. Retro-fitting possible.
The smallest barcode markings that scan directly by Vision and smartphone. Size from 1 mm x 1 mm.
Absence of foreign materials simplifies recycling. Marking improves sorting systems ability to up-cycle waste streams.
No investments in machinery or equipment. No running costs. No impact on mold cycle time.
imZERT is easy to integrate and our microstructure barcodes can be scanned under most conditions
