High Security Printing™ EMEA focuses on government-specified and issued documents, including currency, fiduciary documents, excise stamps, ID cards, e-passports, visas, vehicle documents and licences, with a particular emphasis on banknotes and the emerging technologies for ID and travel documents. As in previous events, speakers will be specialists in their field providing technical presentations, including some regional case studies. Running in tandem with the event will be a trade exhibition of approximately 30 exhibitors working in the currency, e-passport, smart card, authentication and related industries.
Applications of DLC for increased Security and Sustainability
Currency manufacturers have made impressive steps forward with their environmental impact and sustainability goals. However, the chromium manufacturing process of the various printing forms, used for the printing of banknotes, remains a major toxicity concern and under regulatory review.
CEO Eric Serenius presented how special Diamond Like Carbon technology can solve this acute challenge via novel DLC technologies, available today from RotaHybrid Advanced. This engineered surface simultaneously improves ink transfer, micro-structure replication and form longevity, whilst reaching sustainability; or adding up to demonstrated value. It is a European Commission success story!
