Blinking boxes? Glowing bottles?
Chemnitz-based startup Saralon has developed “super-functional” inks to make packaging interactive, tamper-proof, and more attractive.
The inks allow packaging makers to print a range of disposable electronics – circuits, sensors, displays, and batteries – and integrate them into many types of packaging such as cartons, foils, plastic boxes, or glass vials.
The technology can also be easily integrated into existing production lines with conventional printing machines.
