QR codes are also used extensively on medical equipment, automotive parts, tool holders and clamping devices to provide operators a hand help links from their smart phone to operating instructions and other critical documentation.
As a result of laser marking being blurred or erased there has been more and more interest in a more permanent method of creating a QR code in metal and the Nine9 Spotting cutting tool has become an easy solution.
Nine9 has released a series of NC Spot Drills for general spotting-chamfer tool, a Micro Spot Drill for mini spotting, and a New ACE Spot Drill for optimized machining efficiency and stability.
Spotting tools are available in 60°, 90°, 120°, 142°, and 145° included angles.
Nine9 cooperated with Heidenhainto to demonstrate making this QR code application in the video below.
