AlpVision Fingerprint is being used worldwide to protect molded products against counterfeiting. For example, this technology protects such diverse items as flip-off caps of vials, precious metals, and bottle closures. Using intrinsic features of the product, AlpVision Fingerprint is one of the most cost effective and secure solutions available on the market today. On July 12, 2016, a core patent protecting the AlpVision Fingerprint was granted by the United States Patent Office. The patent, number US 9,390,345 B2, is entitled “Means for using microstructure of materials surface as a unique identifier” and covers the core idea of using intrinsic surface features as an authentication means. We are very excited about this patent as it strengthens our authentication position with a unique, novel, and very disruptive approach.
