(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL POUR IMPRIMER DES MARQUES
Abstract
(EN) Method and apparatus for printing marks (23) on documents include means for printing specific information (22) on the document in association with the mark. The apparatus is characterised in that it uses a dot matrix printing technique and includes the printing of an additional field (31) with the aforesaid specific information containing the franking data that is encrypted according to an electronic algorithm key that cannot be copied and which is provided exclusively by the aforesaid authorising body. The apparatus is particularly usable in post offices for franking.
(FR) L'invention a pour objet un procédé et un appareil servant à imprimer des marques (23) sur des documents et comprenant un système destiné à imprimer des informations spécifiques (22) sur le document en rapport avec une marque donnée. L'appareil est caractérisé en ce qu'il utilise une technique d'impression matricielle pour imprimer un champ supplémentaire (31) avec les informations spécifiques susmentionnées, qui contiennent des données d'affranchissement cryptées avec une clé algorithmique électronique qui résiste au copiage et est fournie exclusivement par un organe d'autorisation. L'appareil est particulièrement destiné aux bureaux de poste à des fins d'affranchissement.
