Fachpack 2022: LEONHARD KURZ and SCRIBOS present the Digital Product Passport

Fürth/Germany, August 29, 2022: Fachpack, the leading European trade fair for packaging, technology, and processes, is just a few weeks away. From September 27 to 29, 2022, around 1,100 exhibitors will be presenting new products as well as innovative solutions and machines in Nuremberg. Under the theme ‘Transition in Packaging,’ the focus this year will be on sustainability and digitalization.


Digital Product Passport: Innovative proof of sustainability
As a pioneer in both areas, LEONHARD KURZ will be presenting a special highlight at stand 7A-329 in hall 7A, which was created in cooperation with its subsidiaries SCRIBOS and KURZ Digital Solutions: The Digital Product Passport. It contains all details about the respective product, such as environmental indicators (CO2 balance, resources consumed, recyclability), and also information on product quality, production conditions, repair options, and spare parts.

This solution is ideal for manufacturers and brand owners to prepare for an upcoming EU directive, which obliges them to provide products with detailed proof of sustainability. In addition, the Digital Product Passport from KURZ offers a platform for a variety of attractive digital customer services directly on the product.


From counterfeit protection to online guarantee
The Digital Product Passport can be equipped with various additional functions to match the requirements of the respective customer. On the one hand, it is easily possible to integrate anti-counterfeit security features with proven TRUSTCONCEPT® technology from KURZ, and at the same time use the Product Passport as a certificate of authenticity. Furthermore, brand owners benefit from the opportunity to enrich the Passport with digital marketing content and thus improve customer loyalty. Last but not least, the Product Passport also offers added value for consumers, as additional customer service content such as an online guarantee can be integrated here.


ValiGate® - reliable authentication in seconds
KURZ and SCRIBOS will also be presenting further highlights at Fachpack, including the innovative security solution for reliable counterfeit protection, ValiGate® from SCRIBOS. Double encryption including a unique security pattern with an intelligent structure gives each QR code a copy-protected identity. ValiGate® also bridges the gap between physical and digital product protection, as the authenticity of the product can be easily verified with a smartphone. With this solution, too, detailed information about the product or brand can be included. ValiGate® can thus be individually adapted to the requirements of manufacturers and brand owners.

Interested parties can experience the diverse features and application possibilities of the Digital Product Passport and the ValiGate® security solution live on site at Fachpack.
