Countermark for documents and products

Countermark for documents and products

Countermark is a new class of data carrier designed to be human readable and printed at high speed. Human readability enables damaged codes to be searched and retrieved manually.

Countermark can be used to digitally sign paper documents or implement GDPR privacy measures in organisations holding Personal Sensitive data. It can also be used on products to implement customer loyalty schemes or Unique Device Identifier (UDI) programs to combat counterfeiting and grey market diversion.

Duo double-feed detection system

The Duo System reduces miss-sorts and mail jams and allows higher sorter throughput; it was the “Best in Test” for the USPS on street collection mail. It is easy to retrofit, requires very little maintenance and the patented side view optics allows the Duo System to perform well on tabbed and folded mail items.

This image shows 6 items de-stacked at once. The Duo System prevents this group of 6 letters becoming 5 miss-sorted letters or causing a sorter jam.

Postal barcode readers

The FL-Reader reads 4-state bar and ‘bar/no-bar’ barcodes on letters and flats with UV or blue LED light. It offers a high read rate with low error rates, reducing the amount of manual sort rejects. There is no routine calibration, reducing service downtime and maintenance costs.

The FL-Reader developed with Royal Mail reads fluorescent barcodes from all known envelopes. The black envelope is read with no errors despite the black paper reducing the code ink brightness to less than 1% when compared to the brightness of the ink on white paper.

Colour Scanning of secure ink

Low-light colour scanners allow precise colour detection of high-security inks for high-speed, secure authentication and print verification of products, packaging and documents. The scanners can process UV and IR fluorescent and phosphorescent (lanthanide) inks.

The luminescent image of the 20 Euro banknote was scanned at 3.5 metres per second using a low-light colour scanner. The fluorescent threads randomly distributed in the banknote paper show up in their different colours allowing a document to be identified as a unique entity for its lifetime.
