Codico has been providing digital printing solutions to the security printing market for many years and has partnered with many key OEMs and integrators within this market sector.
Whether you need to track and reconcile documents, materials, or products or are looking for a way to ensure you can provide anti-counterfeit or parallel trade measures for packaging, then Codico has a wide range of Digital Printing Technologies and solutions to enable these types of security features to be effortlessly applied to your products.
Our digital products can print a range of codes, from simple alphanumeric codes and sequential numbering to a wide range of industry-standard machine-readable codes that require high-resolution printing at speeds of up to 200m/min. A range of aqueous, solvent, UV-readable, and taggant based inks to meet the ever-growing security requirements.
Codico also has the capability to control and handle industry-standard data file formats and a range of data management functions used in this industrial sector. This includes print confirmation, reconciliation, vision inspection, matching, and verification capabilities. Codico also has the functionality for supporting PDF workflow formats, as well as IPDS data streaming, which is available fo more demanding data requirements.
Codico’s product portfolio includes the capabilities for:
- Digital Cold Foiling – a unique solution for brand protection providing an enhanced security, and anti-counterfeiting measure.
- B2 sheet-fed inkjet solution with UV-curable or aqueous inks for security fiscal tax stamps, event tickets, game and phone cards.
- Monochrome – high quality digital variable data printing at speeds up to 200m/min ideal for back numbering and personalisation.
- High opacity white ink for high impact appearance, providing a cost-effective alternative to screen printing with the operational flexibility of a digital process.
- Fluorescent UV-readable inks for brand protection and security printing – the combination of VDP and fluorescence provides a strong complexity rating.
Digital Cold Foiling
A unique solution for brand protection, traceability, and product embellishment, which can provide an enhanced security and anti-counterfeiting measure in several niche applications. The technology combines the ‘printing’ of variable onto customer-specific holographic foils providing increased complexity and heightened security that is extremely difficult to replicate.
The Domino K600i high-resolution inkjet printer technology can print variable text, security marks, and graphics at up to 75m/min with virtually no ‘make ready’ or special tools, no plates or dies and is a low maintenance solution. The digital cold foiling is an efficient way of producing short-run production with reduced lead times.
B3 Sheet Fed Applications
A versatile, high-speed, and scalable system for overprinting fully personalised, variable, and secure data. This is ideal for security fiscal stamps, event tickets, game and phone cards, pharma and light-carton packaging. The Domino K600i solution can print real-time or variable data, codes, or graphics at high quality at speeds of up to 120m/min.
The solution is available with both UV-curable or aqueous inks and can be configured with print widths from 108mm to 782mm.
UV Fluorescent Ink Applications
Developed for the security market, Codico has recently introduced a clear security ink that appears green under UV light. The solution is ideally suited to printing secure and covert 2D codes, barcodes, alpha-numeric codes, images, and graphics with the ability for Variable Data Printing (VDP). The combination of VDP and fluorescence provides an excellent complexity rating which would be extremely difficult to replicate. It is ideal to use to add security features to currency, tax stamps, passports, etc to help to prevent forgery. It can also be used on labels and packaging for traceability to safeguard against counterfeiting and to prevent parallel trade.
