BarProof, barcode verification tool builds quality into your process by taking it all the way upstream to your PDF files. BarProof automatically locates verifies all barcodes on a label, carton or press sheet and grades each according to CEN/ANSI/ISO standards. Bar width reduction (BWR) and magnification measurements are also provided.


Product Description

BarProof verifies and decodes 1D and 2D barcodes including UPC, Data Matrix and QR.

The BarProof barcode verification module is available as an option with ArtProof, ScanTVS.

Grade Barcodes in PDF Files – Unique in the Market
BarProof is the only barcode verification and decoder tool available for PDF files that provides grading, bar width reduction and magnification measurements, guaranteeing scannable barcodes at the checkout counter.

Bar Width Reduction
BWR is critical during the pre-press process in order to compensate for different packaging materials and ink spread during production. By verifying BWR values in PDF files upstream in the process, brand owners can be assured that barcodes will achieve expected quality levels.

Barcode Grading Criteria
Decode – Checks the difference between the minimum and maximum reflectance of the scan line
Symbol Contrast – Checks that the minimum reflectance is less than half of the maximum reflectance
Minimum Reflectance – Checks the smallest edge contrast found in the scan line
Minimum Edge Contrast – Checks the ratio of the minimum edge contrast to the symbol contrast
Modulation – Checks the ratio of the minimum edge contrast to the symbol contrast
Defects – Checks for reflectance non-uniformity along the scan line
Decodability – Checks the accuracy of the barcode printing and image in relation to the appropriate symbology reference decode algorithm Decode & grade 1D & 2D barcodes including Data Matrix, QR, MicroQR.
