Product security is understood as those measures that can actively protect a product against piracy and
forgery. A differentiation has to be made between an identification feature and a security feature.
Identification features are logos and typical designs, for example. They differentiate a product from similar
or competing products.
These identification features do not, however, offer any security as far as product copies, i.e. direct
forgeries, are concerned. The situation is different with the iridescent HOLOGRAM security feature -
optical effects such as movement or colour changes are produced when viewed from different angles. It
takes a forger a great deal of effort to produce a counterfeit.
This results in the following:
The more difficult and with an effort it is to copy a security feature, the more suitable it is for product
security. This type of product respectively document security in the graphic industry is best undertaken
using hologram technology that potential forgers do not possess.
Inspired by this challenge, at the start of the 1990s our company developed
the first hot stamping hologram applicator for continuous forms to secure vehicle title documents for an
European government security printer.
The continuous growth in the market for product security and protection against forgery led to the go-
ahead for collaboration with a world's leading hologram manufacturer in 1995. By combining the
experience of both companies, we developed the HP3 hologram applicator module for security
holograms, which is still unrivalled in precision and flexibility, in spite of its numerous imitators.
One system – various applications
The sophisticated design of the HP3 hologram applicator can be used in a wide range of applications in
the security-printing industry, from hologram applications on sheet-fed and continuous forms, to fitted
OEM modules for ticket, visa and passport machines.
Benefit from our partnership!
Through the collaboration with the leading hologram manufacturers, our customers around the world have
skilled partners on hand for their security holograms and their application systems.
