Uralvagonzavod presents anti-counterfeit technology

The Uralvagonzavod Scientific & Production Corporation presented its newest counterfeit protection technology at the recent international Anti-Counterfeit Forum 2012 in Moscow.

The company's counterfeit technology uses a 2D barcode on the pedestals, beams and sets of wheels. The method was created by Russian company OOO Flurintech and uses fluorescent dyes, Ural Business Consulting reports.

"This technology allows for storing great volumes of information - up to 100 symbols per barcode. Encoded are the serial number, the casting number, the drawing number, and the manufacturing date. First of all, this is a 100% piracy proof; secondly, this means the product can be both identified and tracked via an electronic passport; this also means that no defective or pirated items will enter the market,' Uralvagonzavod's Deputy Chief Engineer Yaroslav Rydlevsky said, according to Ural Business Consulting.

Uralvagonzavod's stand at the event included life-size samples of the 578.00.019-0 side frame that is used to make the 18-100 railway barrows and two sections of the 100.00.049-0 car axle with applied barcodes.
