Eurocontrol Technics Group (Eurocontrol) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Israel-based DigiFlex to form a joint venture (JV) develop new printing technologies.

The JV is expected to provide printing inks to governments and brand protection to the security printing industry.

Eurocontrol subsidiary Xenemetrix and DigiFlex are exploring a new three-stage coding system for security printing.

The new technology uses DigiFlex’s ink solution, which can be printed on glass, metals, plastics and a hand-held reader based on Xenemetrix’s ED-XRF technology.

"DigiFlex and Eurocontrol will not only improve security for governments and industry, they will help curb the illicit trade of goods all over the world."

The system identifies the composition of ink elements and images printed with DigiFlex coded ink.

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne said: "By combining their technical expertise, DigiFlex and Eurocontrol will not only improve security for governments and industry, they will help curb the illicit trade of goods all over the world.
