Fairfield, NJ –– At Labelexpo Americas 2022, Cyngient and Imageworx, two flexographic industry leaders, are joining forces to unveil security labeling and brand protection innovations the companies have jointly developed. Visitors to Booth 1415 have the opportunity to learn, speak with experts, as well as view and take home print samples of never-before-seen technology.

Labelexpo Americas 2022 marks the global debut of Micro Security Guilloche Labels. Showcasing the advancements of high-speed microscopic flexo security printing – utilizing high definition inks from Cyngient and enhanced resolution printing plates from Imageworx – Labelexpo attendees can view game-changing ultra-fine lines printed in decorative, intricate, and precise patterns. These security labels hold line weights below 5 microns in thickness, plus positive type printing as low as 0.3 pt and reverse type at 0.4 pt on a 1200x microscope. 

Also at the show, Cyngient and Imageworx will be showcasing an accumulation of various high security inline flexo additions. On display will be Liquid Silver Flip, shapeshifting cold foil technology from Wavefront Technologies, as well as Lumachrome, a color-shifting security foil from Meta Materials that features triple-layered micro-motion barrier effects, iridescent security varnish, and plasmonic metamaterial arrays.

In addition, Labelexpo attendees will have the opportunity to witness the latest advancements in Micro Optical Array printing for brand protection labeling. “Together with Cyngient, we’ll be showcasing an arrangement of 12 customized labels featuring high-definition inks, all printed below 1 BCM and printed using Imageworx micro-optical engineered algorithmic technology utilizing 400 LPI Micro Optical and Liquid Silver arrays,” explains Jeff Toepfer, president at Imageworx.

Toepfer adds, “Micro Optical Array labeling is the new premier method in brand protection, featuring printed line widths as small as 2 microns, magnified by Micro Optical Arrays that transform the print into magnificent assemblage of deep 3D imagery, fast moving animation, and brilliant color-shifting effects. Visit Booth 1415 to witness the future of brand security labeling.”

Andrew Wasserman, managing partner for Cygient, comments, “We’re absolutely thrilled to be partnering at Labelexpo with such an innovative, forward-thinking company. Visitors to our booth are going to be blown away by not only our new security solutions, but also the amazing things we’re bringing to conventional 4-color process flexo printing.”

Cyngient and Imageworx will be showcasing multiple high definition flexo printed samples for the everyday printer. Wasserman adds, “Visitors to our booth can view firsthand the highest quality 4-color process printing available today using high definition processes and Opti Strong white inks from Cyngient – in combination with low volume anilox rolls and proprietary SERO High Definition Modular 160 and 192 line screening from Imageworx. We’re really excited to share these innovations with the label industry at what’s shaping up to be a fantastic Labelexpo Americas.”
