Solution for product authentication
Explore Bosch’s innovation technology that is suitable for authentication among a wide range of industries.
International trade of counterfeited and pirated products amounted to USD 464 Billion as per 2021 the OECD-EUIPO report. Different industries, consumer and industrial, as well as aftermarket and second-hand, are highly affected by sales losses and damages to their brand image. To protect their brand, manufacturers use different physical anti-counterfeiting technologies. Unfortunately, some can be copied or manipulated. While some products can be too small to mark, marks also get distorted due to high temperature processing or cleaning. Sometimes labeling the product can also negatively impact the design of it.
Bosch Origify takes a step forward to fight counterfeiting with its revolutionary solution. Just like our fingerprints, that might look similar but have completely different patterns, we at Bosch observed that products have their own fingerprint too. Bosch Origify product authentication uses fingerprint technology to optically capture the natural surface of a product. The technology recognizes and matches the surface patterns of an individual item and confirms if it is originally produced by the manufacturer, completely contactless and mark-free.
