Security Printing Inspection
Banknotes, identity cards, passports, tamper-evident labels, cheques, product authentication, stock certificates and postage/tax stamps are the life blood of the Security Printing industry. Driven primarily to combat the ever growing threat of counterfeiting and smuggling activities, Security Printers are tasked with ensuring that every document, label, stamp or card produced is legible, accurate, secure, error-free, tracked and has a detailed audit trail.
- Reliable reading of barcodes and unique identifiers on high speed, multi-lane digital presses and transport systems
- Ability to provide multiple, simultaneous capabilities such as currency paper stock verification, compare printed information to a data file, image archiving and integrity reporting at production speeds
- Ability to read from challenging highly reflective surfaces such as holograms and foils, and ultraviolet and infrared printed codes
- Ability to ensure all items within a print file are processed without missing or duplicate pieces
- Bar-Code ANSI/ISO grading and reporting to ensure linear bar-codes, 2D/QR codes and GS-1 codes comply with guaranteed contract specifications and international standards.
- Seamless integration with third party processing equipment such as in-line inkjet printers, feeders, affixers, stacking and labelling equipment
- To facilitate tracking units throughout the production process and supply chain, units are aggregated into bundles, bundles into cases and cases onto pallets, with parent-child relationships maintained in a database
- Integration with “Track & Trace” applications
- Integrity reporting to prove production integrity and detailed audit reporting to satisfy stringent Government and brand owner requirements.
