The CR6000 is an industrial grade direct part mark (DPM) imager designed to read barcodes of every sort. The CR6000 effortlessly reads laser-etched, embossed, dot peen, low-contrast and postal barcodes, and easily decodes dense and extremely small barcodes. Designed with multiple illumination fields, the CR6000 intuitively selects the field that is most efficient at reading each barcode type. This results in quick and accurate data collection from hard-to-read surfaces, damaged barcodes, and those that are smudged, dirty or even caked with debris. This makes the CR6000 ideal for component tracking on assembly lines and other manufacturing applications
