Product protection with the invisible UV ink printers by REINER® marking systems
Direct printing with UV ink for invisible marking makes products and packaging counterfeit-proof and traceable
In professional everyday life, a permanently invisible label is more important than ever in order to distinguish an original product from counterfeits from the production of product piracy as preventive product protection. But purely aesthetic reasons can also speak in favour of discreetly printing markings.
The modern and simple, but also very effective “secret ink” consists of UV ink, also known as black light ink. Invisible in daylight, the printed image can only be read under illumination with special UV lamps (black light).
The mobile inkjet printers from REINER® have proven themselves reliably as industrial ink marking systems for many years. With the special UV ink, the handy marking devices combine a number of advantages in one device:
• Invisible UV ink printing of many types such as invisible barcode printing, text, batch numbers, data matrix codes, graphics
• On individual parts, products, packaging, cardboard boxes
• Product marking on almost all smooth surfaces made of paper, cardboard, metal, plastic, glass, curved surfaces, coated labels
• Invisible ink printers ideal for marking small parts
• The invisible product marking can be created quickly and easily on the PC using the PCset graphic software supplied and transferred via USB or Bluetooth
UV: invisible ink for traceability in production and logistics
However, this unsightly marking in the form of a data matrix code or series of numbers can disrupt the appearance of a product. Especially with small or all around visible products one would prefer to do without it. We know the perfect solution:
fluorescent colours under black light.
REINER®'s special UV ink for inkjet printers looks like a clear liquid in daylight and is invisible as an imprint on objects. Only under appropriate UV light of a black light lamp the printing in bright colour becomes visible.
UV ink as professional secret ink for discreet marking
Especially in the document management there are a multitude of application areas in which a discrete, because invisible marking is advantageous. These can include documents with higher security requirements and copy protection requirements such as contracts, personnel files, delivery notes and much more. Because an imprint with UV ink can neither be photocopied nor photographed. A document falsification is thereby clearly made more difficult.
REINER® industrial marking ink is particularly fast drying and is therefore suitable for invisible marking and numbering on almost all smooth surfaces. Use the industrial marking ink for metal parts, paper, cardboard, plastic, curved surfaces and coated labels.

Individual items and small series with plagiarism protection by mobile direct printing
The invisible originality marking should only be printed by authorised persons in an inconspicuous or difficult-to-view place. This additionally increases the protection against plagiarism. As soon as there is a suspicion of product counterfeiting, lighting with the black light lamp in the right place is sufficient to immediately unmask clumsy counterfeits.
Copy protection on tickets and vouchers through invisible originality marking
Even during an event or when the ticket is redeemed, a lot of additional information can be printed with invisible ink, such as the date and time of entry or the entry number.
Counterfeit-proof marking is required as copy protection, especially for “monetary” documents such as vouchers. But also for marketing reasons it can be useful to provide a voucher with an individual code which the owner does not see. In this way, the origin of the voucher (e.g. campaign or advertising partner) as well as the campaign period can be traced inconspicuously – without the customer feeling pursued.

REINER® ink marking systems: invisible numbering using black light ink
Products in their original packaging are already marked with the manufacturer's EAN code and must also be marked with internal notes.
In order not to impair the appearance of the packaging, the invisible imprint with the transparent black light ink is ideal. For the consumer it remains hidden, but every warehouse employee can immediately check the internal marking and process the goods by lighting them with UV light.
The digital UV stamp
Via the integrated Bluetooth and USB interface, the print image can even be dynamically fed via software from external sources such as ERP or merchandise management – individually for each individual print.
