This new platform, which was developed in collaboration with Videojet Technologies, will make its debut at the upcoming Defence Manufacturing Conference in Tampa.
The Recycler reported earlier this year on the strategic partnership formed between the two companies, which resulted in the use of a co-branded Videojet Technologies 1860 continuous inkjet printer and the creation of a range of co-branded inks that contain Applied DNA’s unique SigNature® molecular tag in each cartridge.
The SigNature molecular ink is a turnkey, high-volume ink that offers per-part traceability; additionally, the inks are brand-specific, meaning that each brand can tag, test and track their products from source to shelf under a CertainT® licensing agreement.
The initial rollout of co-branded SigNature molecular-tagged inks includes an aerospace-approved ink. This durable black ink was chosen to qualify first, due to its specific application and use in the U.S. military and aerospace industry for item unique identifier (IUID) tags for an array of critical components spanning several Federal Supply Groups (FSGs).
Janice Meraglia, Vice President of Government and Military Programs, said, “We look forward to showcasing this unique platform, which is designed to enable defence suppliers to forensically tag products and packaging. Once tagged, other supply chain participants can independently conduct in-field tests along the supply chain, track globally to certify product claims, and prevent diversion and counterfeits.”
The security print platform will be showcased at the Defence Manufacturing Conference in Tampa, which takes place from 4-6 December 2017, and will be exhibited by Applied DNA and Videojet Technologies at Booth #1019.
Meraglia and Bob MacDowell, Director of Government & Military Programs, will be attending the event.
