Known measures from the security print are listed on Wikipedia.
We show special measures with packaging print approaches, which can also be combined:
– für Primärpackmittel / Sekundärpackmittel
– for primary packaging / secondary packaging
– visible / invisible solutions
Primary packaging, e.g. Blisters are tamper-resistant by embedding 3D films in the packaging process. The result is a hologram-like image.
Tamper-evident closures protect secondary packaging.
Folding cartons with fully glued-on flaps: If the package is opened via a perforation, a visible damage indicates that an opening has already taken place.
Concealed tear-away flaps, which fall off after opening can be realized without adhesive (automata). Surfaces can be punched out so that a colored surface becomes visible after opening. (Picture right)
optical and product-enhancing motifs can be printed with 3D lacquers. They are discreetly similar to a watermark. The security against counterfeiting arises because the required lacquers and printing plates are patented and are only available from our partner.)
Invisible elements are, in principle, more difficult to counterfeit. Our patented inks (cyan, magenta, black) can be processed in all screen and flexo printing machines. They become visible only at higher temperatures; For example by rubbing or using a laser pointer.
Data can be exchanged via radio frequency identification. Tiny transponders can be integrated into almost all packing systems. What is needed is a computer-assisted reader which identifies them. Advantage: Many packs can be recorded in one pass. The data can be passed on to further systems, for example the merchandise management.
Magnetic Inks or invisible lacquers can be applied with flexibly. The read-out is carried out by means of standard smartphones and a software app: one goes directly with the display over the printed spot and receives the authentication from the Internet server. This app offers tremendous opportunities for further customer use – at lower ongoing costs. This patented system is still partly under development. Examples can only be shown on request.
