DataMatrix (2D) Barcode Symbologies – UID/UII
A DataMatrix code is an ISO standardized two-dimensional matrix Symbology commonly used for small item marking applications. Roemer Industries is able to create customized durable DataMatrix codes using a wide variety of printing, marking, and graphics technologies. In addition, all of our products scan at an ANSI grade of B or better.
Due to the ability of this Symbology to contain a large amount of information, the DataMatrix has been adopted as the standard by many organizations and industries including the United States Department of Defense via their unique identification marking (UID) compliance requirements. A UID is a permanent tag that is attached to government products which can be used to track inventory and property.
This new standardization specifies that any Defense supplier and/or DoD contractor is required to have unique item identification (UII) on all qualifying parts in accordance with the UID specifications. For those seeking limited numbers of UII/UID labels and nameplates let Roemer Industries’ expertise allow you to focus on your production while we cover the marking and compliance standards.
UID is a globally unique “part identifier” containing data elements used to track items throughout their lifecycle. MIL STD 130 is a standard that is mandated by the DoD for any item to be UID compliant. Roemer Industries employs a number of different printing processes which will ensure compliance with this standard, such as; ink-jet, laser etching, photo-anodizing and thermal transfer.

Roemer Industries offers 2D DataMatrix barcodes in many different materials to meet your needs, examples of our capabilities include:
UII/UID – Foil Bar Code Labels: Foil Bar Code Labels combine the durability of a nameplate with the flexibility and versatility of a label. These labels withstand harsh conditions including chemicals, abrasion, solvents and high temperatures.
UII/UID – MetalPhoto® Bar Code Nameplates: Our Metal Photo® Bar Code Nameplates are ideal for customers who require permanent nameplates to stand up in harsh environments including extreme abrasion, chemicals, and solvents as well as sun, salt air, and high temperatures.
UII/UID – Polyester Bar Code Labels: For environments where caustics are an issue we offer Polyester Bar Code Labels, our thickest, most durable polyester label. Subsurface printing protects against extreme solvents, caustics and acids as well as moderate abrasion while eliminating the need for a laminate.
UII/UID – Ceramic on Stainless Steel Nameplates: Applications with extremely high temperatures call for our Ceramic-on-Stainless Steel Nameplates. These nameplates withstand temperatures up to 1800ºF as well as being chemical and abrasion resistant.
