3S Simons Security Systems GmbH will be presenting its products and industry solutions for legally binding counterfeit protection at Hannover Messe 2012. On the basis of its micro colour codes SECUTAG®, the company has developed solutions for mechanical engineering, the automotive industry and the pharmaceutical sector as well as for end-to-end security covering the entire flow of material and goods. The micro colour code technology has been counterfeit-proof for over 15 years. SECUTAG® unambiguously identifies products as originals and is accepted as evidence by international courts. Micro colour codes safeguard a company’s brand and product portfolio and assist the fight against unjustified damage claims. 3S will be showcasing its range of products in Hanover, in hall 7, at the joint booth Product Protection (stand # E48/3), from 23 – 27 April 2012.
End-to-end security for the entire flow of material and goods
Traceability codes, such as RFID or data matrix have established themselves in the area of product traceability. Yet they are not per se counterfeit-proof. SECUDATA® therefore combines the logistic advantages of the different traceability codes with the counterfeit protection of micro colour codes. Both codes are conjointly applicable onto the product, its primary or secondary packaging, labels or closure seals. The traceability system as well as the product can thus be identified as originals. Additionally, counterfeit-proof delivery and freight documents as well as other accompanying documents can be issued. Customised seals and hologram labels, control seals and closures are also manufactured and protected against counterfeiting with SECUDATA®.
Labelling of original machines, components and spare parts
Direct marking of any kind of product will be another highlight presented by 3S in Hannover. SECUPRODUCT® enables users to mark spare parts and components, or even complete machines as originals. As the colour codes can be precisely applied onto nearly all solid matters, they can be easily integrated into all existing manufacturing processes. Therefore, SECUPRODUCT® is suitable for adequate product protection in all industry sectors, including mechanical and plant engineering as well as automobile and aviation industries.
Protection against counterfeit medicines
Counterfeit drug trade is flourishing worldwide. The findings from 2011 show that falsification of medicines affects all product types, be they generic or innovator, including antibiotics, antidepressants, lifestyle drugs and skin care products. This also means that counterfeit-proof product labelling is of great importance, in particular in the pharmaceutical sector. This is why 3S has developed the micro colour code system SECUPACK® which is especially designed for this industry. Primary and secondary packaging from all industries are labelled as originals, for example folded boxes, tubes, cans, phials, blisters and closures made of different materials. For many years, 3S has been actively contributing to the fight against brand and product piracy by offering legally binding labelling systems and it will continue to play its part.
3S Simons Security Systems GmbH is an internationally renowned manufacturer of labelling systems for legally binding counterfeit protection. On the basis of the world’s smallest micro colour codes SECUTAG®, 3S has developed several industry solutions against product piracy. Products, primary and secondary packaging, textile and sporting goods, certificates and other documents, data and ERP systems are secured against forgery using the colour codes. Additionally, counterfeit protection is combined with production and supply chain traceability.
