Ensuring Quality Control in Hologram Printing

Innovative hologram printing uses red, blue, and green on the printing surface. When a hologram-printed image is observed from a specific angle, it turns iridescent.

Hologram-printed images cannot be easily be reproduced through photography or ordinary copies, so this method is used on paper money and credit cards to help prevent counterfeiting.

However, as counterfeiting technology continues to develop, there is an increased demand to develop better methods to check the quality of hologram-printed images.

Olympus’ Solution

The Olympus DSX1000 digital microscope makes it easy to inspect and record the quality of hologram-printed images. It also enables users to view the shape of specific parts, diagnosing defects from multiple angles in considerable detail.

The DSX1000 digital microscope offers:

  • High-definition, high-resolution imaging capabilities
  • 3D image capture technology
  • Differential interference contrast (DIC) imaging
  • Simple workflows with user guidance that enable operators of all skill levels to acquire high-quality results
  • Extended focus imaging (EFI) feature maintains focus across the full visual field
  • Integrated software with a wide range of measuring features
  • A comprehensive array of image-processing techniques
