The goal of the SFERA project is to deliver a complete innovative solution by developing a new Sub-surface, Fast internal Engraving and Reading system suitable for Anticounterfeiting applications needed by the pharmaceutical industry.
Counterfeiting is a major global problem, with important societal and economic consequences, including the expansion of organised crime, loss of jobs and tax revenues, as well as serious health and safety risks, for which the pharmaceutical sector is particularly vulnerable.
The SFERA project will benefit from an experienced, market oriented industrial consortium to make the necessary technology breakthroughs for the laser and for the beam system. The targeted very high rates will also imply innovations on process/control, mechanical handling and vision systems.
