UPDATED MICROPERFORATION SYSTEM TO PROTECT BANKNOTES

According to a press release issued in The Netherlands August 21,
“Industrial Automation Integrators (IAI) B.V. in Veldhoven, a
subsidiary of DOCdata N.V. in Waalwijk, will supply a Laser-
Perforation-System for the application of the patented security
feature MicroPerf(R) to a banknote printing company. The delivery
of this system is planned by mid-2008. This system will replace
a MicroPerf(R) system that is operational since 1997.

“Main contractor for this project is KBA-Giori S.A. in Lausanne,
Switzerland, the marketing and sales subsidiary of König & Bauer
(KBA) in Würzburg (www.kba-print.de) for the banknote-
printing market. KBA-Giori is by far the leading supplier of
equipment to banknote printers.

“The MicroPerf(R) security feature, an invention of the Swiss
security printer Orell Füssli (www.ofs.ch), is now
applied in Swiss, Latvian and Russian banknotes. It consists
of a pattern of minute, laser-applied holes, which become
visible when the note is held to the light.”
