Exciting technology breakthroughs in 2019 create a new platform of security print solutions.
Breaking ground by introducing additional security features
The period from 2018 has been an important time for Industrial Inkjet Ltd (IIJ). The company broke new ground with its understanding of Konica Minolta print head technology and its adaption to the requirements of the security print market. By focusing not only on ink development with its security ink partner Luminescence, but also on an extensive program of print process development in conjunction with a number of major security printing companies, IIJ are now able to create not only invisible security features using fluorescent inks, microtext and IR-absorbing print but now also standard black print that changes colour under UV light.
Further work has now extended the capability to include full colour images printed with UV-fluorescent inks.
Incorporating this technology with IIJ’s range of compact inkjet print modules allows an economic way to apply multiple layers of fully variable security features to any document. IIJ’s skill in integrating the print modules into existing presses also allows the creation of “hybrid” security features using a combination of conventional and inkjet print.
The simple compact design and flexible software allows the printer the ability to immediately adapt to customer’s new security requirements without modification to the press or tooling costs.
Passports, ID cards, visas, examination papers and tax stamps form only a small part of the range of applications that can be handled.
IIJ has been providing successful print solutions to the Security market for almost 10 years. We have an established reputation in this market. We are the “go-to” supplier where creativity, innovation and flexibility are needed.
As well as our technology and our inkjet product portfolio we have wide ranging project management skills and a proven track record of successfully driving complex security printing projects involving ink and process development, mechanical integration, verification camera systems and bespoke software development for data-handling and reporting.
