Forgery-proof security labels

Scanlab now equips all scan systems and galvanometer scanners with forgery-proof security labels. To customers, this counterfeit-proofing guarantees system authenticity and the 'engineered and manufactured in Germany' quality attribute. Every scan head and galvanometer scanner shipped now bears individually coded brand-protection security labels to ensure each system's genuineness and traceability. 

These labels can't be typographically or holographically copied, and incorporate multi-level authenticity attributes. Some are apparent with the unaided eye, and others only visible with magnification or a reading device. Additionally, quick and reliable verification and traceability are facilitated via unit-specific codes combined with the respective product serial number.

During servicing, or if customers have concerns about system genuineness, they can ask the company for a quick check of their system's authenticity and quality approval. The Greater Munich based manufacturer will then instantly verify genuineness by barcode-scanning the applicable serial number combined with the unique security code.
