OpSec Security, an international company which describes itself as ‘the world leader in brand integrity,’ has invested in Europe’s first HP Indigo 6K Secure Digital Press. The new press, which was unveiled by HP amid a raft of products earlier this year, will allow OpSec to offer customers both security and flexibility.

The new machine, which as been installed at OpSec’s site in North East England, will allow the company to integrate a variety of security and authentication features to the products it produces for its customers. The Indigo 6K Secure’s single-pass capability and secure variable data options were of particular interest to OpSec, as was its ability to place unique identifiers in numerous locations on labels, packaging, or tax stamps. 

The integration of dedicated security design software from Jura also contributes to OpSec’s responsive design methodologies, providing a ‘seamless method’ for controlling variable data and creating unique security features in one pass on the press.

‘The capabilities of the counterfeiter are always advancing,’ explained Selva Selvaratnam, CEO of OpSec Security. ‘The HP Indigo 6K Secure Press, in conjunction with our advanced OVD (Optical Variable Device) technologies, provides brand owners the confidence that they will remain ahead of even the most determined counterfeiters. Our ability to print secure, impactful designs on sustainable and recycled substrates, using sustainable security inks from HP, also allows us to offer brands the distinctiveness they need, whilst upholding their commitment to sustainability.’

Amir Raziel, head of strategic marketing for HP Indigo, added, ‘We are excited to welcome OpSec Security as the first customer of the HP Indigo 6K Secure Press in Europe. As a world leader in brand protection, OpSec will set new standards in product authentication using our HP Indigo Secure technology. We expect this partnership to change the standard paradigm for both companies, setting a new bar in anti-counterfeiting.’
