Uralvagonzavod Corporation Presents Latest Piracy-Proof Technology

October 24, 2012. Uralvagonzavod Scientific & Production Corporation took part in the international Anti-Counterfeit Forum 2012 in Moscow on October 22-24. Russia’s largest railway vehicles manufacturer presented its newest counterfeit protection technology there, the corporation’s press service reports.

The counterfeit protection technology consists in applying a 2D barcode onto the main components of the vehicles: pedestals, beams, and sets of wheels. This method, elaborated by the Russian company OOO Flurintech, is unique in that it uses fluorescent dyes.

‘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,’ says Uralvagonzavod’s Deputy Chief Engineer Yaroslav Rydlevsky.

Visitors to the forum had a chance to test the beauty of this protection technique personally: the corporation’s stand featured some life-size samples of the 578.00.019–0 side frame that is used for making the 18–100 railway barrows and two sections of the 100.00.049–0 car axle with applied barcodes.
