About Axicon

Axicon Weston on the Green

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 1979 as a provider of high-quality barcode images for the printing industry, we still specialise 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.


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 barcoding.  Our staff 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 specialised in all aspects of barcode excellence for over 30 years and the name Axicon is now synonymous with barcode quality.

New digital printer for Axicon Labels, 7 March 2019



The Mark Andy press prints in full colour, and can add final finishes such as spot colour, varnishes, and metallic foils, so that labels meet customers’ increasingly specialised requirements.  “We know that our customers always want high-quality labels, and our investment in this new technology means we can offer labels faster, and in smaller quantities when they need them.  Digital printers will not replace all of our printers, but this one gives us the ability to be more responsive, and still maintain the superb quality our customers know us for,” added Adam.


Axicon Auto ID LLC will be exhibiting at Label Expo Americas on 15-17 September 2020. We will be in the hall F on Booth 6407
