We use nanotechnology ink to print unique, invisible codes onto products. These codes are readable with any phone by simply taking a photo.
Using recent advances in digital printing and nanotechnology, we apply a unique code to every product. The code is printed invisibly over the product's native labels / packaging and can be detected using any phone with a camera.
Every code is linked to a basic set of data about the product (factory ID, MSRP, EPC, etc.) which is communicated through the Arylla scanning API. Our clients integrate this API with services for consumer marketing, anti-counterfeiting, and the circular economy.
Our technology simplifies the process of giving every product a unique ID, which is a requisite for any company looking to capture value from the Internet of Things. We do this in three ways: lowering tag cost, avoiding any change to the product, and enabling interoperability.
Because we don't use the same semiconductor technology as incumbents like RFID, Invisicode is an order of magnitude less expensive on a per tag basis.
The invisibility of the code means the aesthetic of the product remains unchanged, making it much easier for new programs to receive approval from design stakeholders.
The simplicity of our API allows clients to plug their products into any software platform and build new services as their needs evolve – it takes 1-2 days for a new integration. This is a crucial point since many of our clients are still experimenting with different use cases for the Internet of Things.
Arylla operates in the apparel and footwear industry, focusing on mid-market and premium brands. We make our own digital printing stations and install them with label manufacturing partners around the world. These printing stations are used to apply the Invisicode technology onto rolls of labels before they are shipped to the factory, and they automate the process of associating every label to product data.
The ink is UV-cured, printed by inkjet, and RSL compliant. It is compatible with polyester, nylon, paper, and corrugate. It has been thoroughly validated on the Fujifilm Starfire platform and formulation testing is in progress with the Ricoh and Kyocera platforms.
