Xennia to present at IMI Security Printing Conference 2010
15 November 2010
Malcolm Burwell, Xennia’s general manager of US production line systems will present a talk entitled ‘Industrial inkjet printing for security applications’ at the Annual Security Printing Conference on Wednesday 17th November 2010. Burwell’s talk will outline the benefits of inkjet technology for security applications, the materials used in inks, fluids and coatings in identity documents, anchors for track and trace, card marking and other similar applications. The talk will also cover the technical challenges and opportunities for inkjet technology as compared with traditional analogue printing processes.
Burwell explains “There is increasing demand to include more complex security features on a wide range of products. Digital technology provides a solution to fulfill this need: for example inkjet technology can be used to produce scratch-proof spot varnishes, to embed variable data into a non-barcode image and to print the electrical connections in RFID tags, all of which I will discuss in more detail at the conference.”
