Thermal Inkjet printing QR code, lot number and expiry date on a carton


Anti-counterfeit coding aids product security and protects against counterfeit products.

Anti-counterfeit coding & marking is ideal for manufacturers looking to protect their products, customers, and brand reputation. This is especially true for pharmaceutical, medical, and cosmetic manufacturers.

On-line coding using UV ink

UV thermal inkjet technology is designed for high security product protection, enabling customers in all sectors to add secure marks and codes to products to prevent counterfeiting. The UV ink can be printed in conjunction with standard batch codes, date codes, QR codes, serial numbers, brand labels or barcodes that meet ISO/IEC 15415 quality specification.

Alternatively, it can be applied directly to specific parts of the packaging or labelling in a range of formats.

Off-line coding solutions

Depending on the application and throughput requirements, some products are best coded away from the main production line (off-line). When fitted with a thermal inkjet printer using UV ink, our off-line feeding systems offer a standalone solution for anti-counterfeit coding.
