Nosco adds covert security using HP Indigo invisible inks

Nosco is a Chicago-based printer with six sites across the US. The company specializes in printed packaging for the natural health, personal care and pharmaceutical industries, and currently serves more than 30 customers with print security products, including overt barcodes, microprint and other technologies.

To support the latest launch, Nosco is dedicating a production line featuring an HP Indigo WS6600 digital press to print covert security elements utilizing HP Indigo ElectroInk Invisible Yellow and HP Indigo Security ElectroInk 523. ElectroInk Invisible Yellow is only visible under UV light while Security ElectroInk 523 is an infrared ink. This is said to offer brand owners total transparency with full covert serialization printing of both barcodes and serial numbers.

In addition to the HP-powered security offer, Nosco has signed an agreement with VerifyMe to use its readers and authentication tools in combination with HP Indigo Security ElectroInk 523.

Craig Curran, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Nosco, said: ‘Brand owners in the healthcare market are especially in need of covert print security solutions. Through the use of invisible technologies like these, we can help our customers combat the growing threat of product diversion.

‘We’re excited to offer such innovative solutions like these to our customers.’

HP Indigo's invisible ink technology will feature as part of the digital printing specialist's digital label printing webinar on November 16.
