Axicon Auto ID is a world leader in barcode verification, having developed and manufactured our own verifiers since 1989. Axicon barcode verifiers are used across the globe and are fully compliant with the international ISO/IEC standards for both linear and matrix bar codes. These verifiers are used to measure the quality of printed barcodes, on all levels of product packaging.
Established in 1978 as a provider of high-quality barcode images for the printing industry, we still specialize in producing barcode images, and barcode labels, as well as a range of barcode verification equipment. We also provide a range of services to support our clients, including training, consultancy, and barcode verification.
Ten years ago Axicon established an American base in Cincinnati to serve its customers in both North and South America, and it has been a resounding success. “We have always had a strong customer base in Europe, the Far East and Australia,” explained Martin Morrison, managing director of Axicon, “and our American customers now account for over a sixth of our global sales. It is good to know that the quality of our UK-made ISO/IEC compliant barcode verifiers is really appreciated where barcodes first originated.”
Axicon develops, manufactures and maintains its range of barcode verifiers at the company headquarters, North of Oxford. Our range of barcode verifiers is distributed through a network of international partners across the globe, and our clients include major manufacturers and retailers worldwide.
We have also always been involved in the creation and updating of UK and international standards for identification and bar coding. Our staffs have contributed to the work of GS1 UK, as well as BSI’s IST/34 committee which helps develop the ISO/IEC standards concerning barcodes and verification. We also contribute to GS1’s Barcode Technology Group and the development of the GS1 General Specifications.
We have specialized in all aspects of barcode excellence for over 30 years and the name Axicon is now synonymous with barcode quality.
