Title
(EN) EMBOSSING OF BANKNOTES OR THE LIKE WITH SECURITY DEVICES
(FR) ESTAMPAGE DE BILLETS DE BANQUE OU AUTRES AVEC DES DISPOSITIFS DE SECURITE
Abstract
(EN)
A security document or token such as a banknote (40) is provided which has a transparent portion (42) of plastics material which includes a security device (50). The region (44) surrounding the transparent portion (42) and preferably all the remaining part of the banknote (40) is printed with indicia. The security device (50) includes regions (52, 54, 56 and 58) of embossed lines extending at different angles to each other defining different shapes that are visible to a greater or lesser extent upon transmission and reflection of light as the note is tilted, rotated or viewed from different angles relative to a light source. The embossed lines in some of the regions (52 and 54) are finer than coarser and deeper and more widely spaced lines in the other regions (56 and 58). The coarser, deeper lines are of such a thickness and width to be detected by touch in addition to being visible by the naked eye. There is also provided a method of and apparatus for producing a banknote with a security device in accordance with the invention in which the transparent portion of the note is embossed during an intaglio printing process.
(FR)
Le titre ou document nécessitant une impression de sécurité tel un billet de banque (40) est pourvu d'une partie (42) transparente en matière plastique incluant le dispositif de sécurité (50). La zone (44) entourant la partie transparente (42) et de préférence le reste du billet de banque (40) sont imprimés de signes caractéristiques. Le dispositif de sécurité (50) est réalisé par estampage de lignes dans des zones (52, 54, 56 et 58). Ces lignes estampées selon des angles d'incidence variant d'une ligne à l'autre définissent différents motifs qui sont plus ou moins visible par transmission et par réflexion de la lumière, si le billet de banque est soumis à des mouvements d'inclinaison ou de rotation, ou si l'observateur observe le billet de banque sous différents angles par rapport à une source de lumière. Les lignes estampées dans certaines des zones (52 et 54) sont fines, alors que dans d'autres zones (56 et 58) elles sont plus grossières, plus profondes et plus espacées. Les lignes plus grossières et plus profondes ont une épaisseur qui permet de les détecter au toucher, et non plus uniquement par simple observation à l'oeil nu. Le procédé et le matériel destinés à la production de billets de banque munis de ce dispositif de sécurité permettent l'estampage de la partie transparente du billet pendant les opérations d'impression en taille-douce.
