Place a label and etch that instead of the PCB. Too many variances in solder mask

From what I figured, machine is as good as the understanding we have about it. I have heard people complaining about machines I know for a fact are great. Manuals and training are there with a reason. There is no universal recipe for anything out the

Hello people. We have a Nutek LMC-S3 laser etcher that we use for etching 2D datamatrix codes onto our PCBs. The system has been in use for some time, but seems to constantly need tweaking to get reliable results. There are a lot of variables that

What about the bar code reader? The ability of them vary a lot. One machine had problems reading clearly printed barcodes. But after new software it would read them well. And later we got boards with the datamatrix barcodes silk screened on. They we

Software makes a huge difference. Try a different barcode reader app and see if you can find a better one. With data matrix the bar code can be mostly a bunch of blobs as long as the outside is reasonable good. Then the reader only needs a few pixels

Are you using a regular barcode scanner, or a smartphone app? When I print QR style codes on labels, I often use my phone to verify the print, but I've found that sometimes, especially when I print very small, or a very dense barcode, my phone won't

Is the variation between markings human-detectable, or does the issue only crop up when you use a scanner? Different scanners can definitely have different results. Try a few models, and make sure you aren't using any damaged scanners. When you se

Lead in pencils is conductive, so if dust or lead particals were to break off (which they could easily do) this could cause shorts on the board, etc. Its common practice not to use lead pencils in electronics manufacturing.

The "lead" in pencils is no longer lead. (not for several decades) It's graphite. And it is very conductive. I found out the hard way in high school science class.
