SEPTEMBER 4, 2007--DataLase (Cheshire, UK) and FractureCode (Copenhagen, Denmark) are partnering to offer item-level coding and track & trace systems for individual products. By using the DataLase process to image the FractureCode track & trace technology onto individual products, the companies will be able to offer high-resolution codes at high-speed, without the need for conventional printing processes.
FractureCode, part of Filtrona, provides and delivers end-to-end coding and tracking systems. The FractureCode system features a unique symbology containing a nonsequential code and provides a secure field-readable technology that enables authentication of individual products or documents containing the code.
FractureCode is traditionally generated using conventional rotary printing processes such as gravure and flexo. By using the DataLase process to digitally print the code on-line, FractureCode can offer an additional way of adopting the new technology. The DataLase process features a patented ink that changes color on exposure to a low-power laser during the production of products and documents. The image can be embedded into laminated materials or under the surface of plastic films, creating a tamper-proof result.
