HOLOGRAPHIC ORIGINATION MACHINES
Thanks to the work of our R&D Team as well as our experience as a hologram producer, we are now offering new holographic technology that combines microlithography techniques with computational optics to produce state-of-the-art originations.
Cheetah® is a state-of-the-art, high-resolution, high-speed, large-format microlithography mastering system, designed to produce top quality holograms and other types of Optically Variable Devices (OVD’s). By the direct-write laser exposing of photo sensitive layers, the Cheetah®creates micro-structured optical features to be used in security applications (brand protection & document authentication), and decorative premium packaging applications.

Firefly® is a state-of-the-art, single-pass, single-head micro-lithography origination system that has been developed to produce high-quality holograms, and it is capable of recording optically-variable diffraction features suitable for security applications with Level 1 (naked-eye), Level 2 (handheld-viewer) and Level 3 (forensic) verification.Firefly is powered by a dedicated, multi-core, high-end computer with 32 GB of RAM and a version of the LINUX® operating system that is tailored to perform calculations and control tasks. This operating system selection and configuration make Firefly a truly secure, reliable, virus-free machine.
Firefly can be controlled by one touchscreen, or by a device that shares a network connection with it if requested. To increase Firefly’s security, it can only be operated by authorized users who plug a provided USBkey into the machine. For hologram design, Firefly® comes with Project Manager software that uses image files uploaded in standard bitmap formats (such as .tiff, .jpg, .png, and .bmp) to create projects and expose them as holograms. Each project is saved as a single .holo file, which can be uploaded to Firefly to begin the hologram origination process.
