Pasaban, #SecurityPrinting paper - NEW 20 euros #banknote, New milestone


The new 20 Euros banknote incorporate an innovative system , the portrait window, that has been implemented thanks to the automatic Laser Punching System developed by Pasaban for the printing security paper and other materials.

The new 20€ banknote series appeared in the market to be in the hands of the consumers last 25th of November 2015. This new series incorporates innovative security features to protect them against counterfeiting. The most “visible” ones can be the innovative portrait window, with the portrait hologram that can be transparent when looking through it against a light, with “Europe” portrait in it.

Pasaban has been cooperating deeply in finding solutions about the process of application of these features into the new banknote. But apart from the application and creation of the windows in the security printing machine, the most important subject was also to link this application with the highest standards of accuracy and precision positioning of the elements into the banknote and applied during the security printing machine process.This was a real challenge for Pasaban, which at the same time is one of the specialties of Pasaban Technology.

In order to match all the objectives, Pasaban used the latest laser technology together with a hot stamping process giving as a result the highest precision in the positioning of all security features into the 20€ new note.  “This new banknote of 20 Euros becomes a milestone in the technology of the banknotes” as Mr. Carl-Ludwig Thiele member of Deutsche Bundesbank Board said. Once again the trust placed in Pasaban Company and its Technology level gave the expected results.
