SCANLAB provides counterfeit-proof laser processing components

SCANLAB AG labels its products using the latest security technology so that users are protected from poor quality copies. This counterfeit-proofing guarantees system authenticity for customers, 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 uniqueness, genuineness and traceability.

For years, product piracy has caused substantial damage to numerous industries from two sides. On one side, cheap, copied products eat into reputable manufacturers' sales revenues. On the other side, purchasers are harmed by using inferior products. Therefore, well-implemented piracy protection benefits producers and users in equal measure.

To mitigate such risks, SCANLAB now equips all scan systems and galvanometer scanners with forgery-proof security labels. These labels cannot 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.
