RFID alcohol anti-counterfeiting technology to eliminate counterfeit products into the sales market

- Jun 14, 2018-

First, system overview

In society, counterfeit goods have become a worldwide problem. Under the drive of interests, counterfeit and shoddy products have become increasingly rampant in the market. Especially for alcoholic products, it has become one of the key elements of counterfeit manufacturing by counterfeiting, giving people life and even life safety. It brought great threats and caused huge losses for the company. At present, counterfeit alcohol counterfeiting technology is not difficult to counterfeit, and counterfeiters often quickly grasp the anti-counterfeiting technology, and even forge together with the lack of self-discipline technology developers to make wine producers have headaches.

The advantage of RFID alcohol security is that each tag has a unique ID number that cannot be modified or counterfeited. Using RFID technology, alcohol proofing has no mechanical wear and anti-fouling; readers have physical interfaces that are not directly open to end users and guarantee their own security; data security uses some algorithms in addition to the password protection of tags. Implement security management; there is a mutual authentication process between readers and tags; data storage is large, content can be erased multiple times, and a logistics and supply chain management system based on RFID technology can also be established, through which each bottle can be recorded. The whole process of wine production, storage, sales and delivery, and can automatically statistics production, sales, and other information, to achieve anti-counterfeiting effect at the same time, in one fell swoop, to achieve information management.

The use of RFID alcohol anti-counterfeiting technology can eliminate the inflow of counterfeit products into the sales market, control product quality, supervision and management of sales personnel, formulate reasonable service strategies, strengthen control over market management, guide product design and positioning, and improve the timeliness of business decisions. 


Second, the system process

2.1 Application Process

Using RFID technology will optimize the production, distribution and sales of the entire product. On the one hand, it can obtain accurate information flow instantly, improve the monitoring during the logistics process, reduce unnecessary links and losses in the logistics process, and reduce the amount of safety stock and working capital in all aspects of the supply chain; on the other hand, through The monitoring of final sales enables consumers to report their consumer preferences in a timely manner to help them adjust and optimize the product structure, thereby gaining higher customer satisfaction and loyalty. Liquor anti-counterfeiting system runs through the whole process of wine production, sales circulation, data collection and information processing. The entire link is meticulous, and it can effectively achieve anti-counterfeiting, and suppressing counterfeit wine into the market.

2.2 Workflow

(1) Electronic labeling on wine boxes

Lianlianbao RFID electronic labels are used as anti-counterfeiting labels, which must be attached to the production chain. They should be attached to the bottles in the original bottle labels and then be packed into the boxes. The electronic label is a paper-based EPC label. The label is printed on the surface, and the label is permanently attached to the bottle with a permanent sticker on the back.

Paste by hand and mechanically paste: When the product is manufactured, RFID anti-counterfeit RFID tags are placed at the corresponding positions of the products by hand or automated methods, or the labels are placed in the product packaging box.

(2) Install a fixed read-write device on the production line, write data into the tag, and automatically record the information

Alcohol reads and writes equipment at the end of the packaging line. When the electronic tag passes through the reading and writing area, the reader automatically reads out the tag ID number and writes the EPC code of the alcohol. At the same time, other information is written in the user data area. Such as product offline time and other information; the same time, the reader can set a different password for each tag according to a certain algorithm to prevent someone attempting to modify the internal data of the tag. In addition, the server records the tag information and creates an archive (production time, alcohol type, etc.) for each bottle for inquiry. After completing the data writing work, alcohol will be put into the packing box for storage.

Alcohol production companies sometimes need to conduct sampling inspections on the wines produced, and it is recommended to increase inspection of electronic labels. Alcohol companies can use handhelds to read data in electronic tags to ensure that data is written correctly.

2.3. Anti-counterfeiting query and sales management

(1) The authenticity of the inspection wines of the dealers and retailers equipped with handsets

Alcohol sales are the most important part of the anti-counterfeiting link. Most fake wines enter the circulation of alcohol through the loopholes in the sales cycle. It can be stipulated that the liquor dealer must have a handset, and the sent liquor must be inspected to ensure that no fake liquor is mixed in. At the same time, sales of high-end liquor are often sold through large shopping malls, supermarkets, and specialty stores. Retailers are also equipped with (can be rented) handsets to verify the authenticity of alcohol. As a consumer, he has the right to require the retailer to use the handset to check the authenticity of alcohol on the spot when purchasing alcoholic beverages. If the data can be read successfully, it indicates that the bottle of wine is real wine (the electronic tag cannot be reused and can be excluded. After the criminals recovered the old wine boxes, they removed the electronic labels and used them again for the purpose of impersonating real wine; in addition, counterfeit wine manufacturers used RFID systems to counterfeit the price too high and could not be counterfeited; dealers intentionally introduced fake wines. The consequence is a huge loss of credibility and economic loss, which can also be ruled out. If the data cannot be read out, the consumer can refuse to buy it.

(2) The winery can establish an inquiry agency

The electronic tag data handled by the reader will be recorded in the server. The data processing system cross-links the web query system. The distributor, retailer or alcohol buyer can inquire the ID number of the electronic tag through the communication network and identify the real value of the wine. Pseudo.

Third, the system features

3.1 Tracking of the supply process

As the range required by retailers expands, more wine companies need to use EPC tags at least on pallets and containers. The system can record and track product operations in real time, accurately and completely, and can comprehensively and efficiently strengthen the management of products from production, transportation, sales, etc., and provide various sophisticated and easy-to-use queries, statistics, and data analysis. Features

3.2 Wine Storage Management

EPC's electronic tags are used on the bottleneck of each bottle of wine produced to record the location, product category, date, etc., and the labels on the bottles can be grasped according to the unique codes of each product. The status of the goods, including whether the temperature is suitable, the quality of the wine, etc., for storage management, can also immediately understand the items that need to be replenished to facilitate out-of-stock management. In addition, the data can be modified by simply entering the system when returning.

Wine manufacturers can also use sensor technology EPC tags to monitor changes in the ambient temperature of wine barrels that can affect wine quality.

3.3 Effective Anti-counterfeit Function

In the process of buying and selling wine, because it cannot be opened on the spot to check its authenticity, this provides opportunities for counterfeiters. However, information on the electronic label on the bottle can be queried through the EPC system, and the site, year, date of manufacture, and composition of the wine can be clearly understood. And EPC's technical difficulty is difficult to copy!

After the liquor is filled and capped, the printing is performed at the seam between the lid and the container. The upper half of the electronic label is printed on the lid and the lower half is printed on the container. When the consumer opens the bottle cap, the printing on the bottle cap is destroyed, and the printing on the container is intact, the printing on the container cannot be wiped off to form a permanent mark, and the used bottle is prevented from being used by illegal businesses. Come to impersonate.

3.4 Effective security features

Each electronic tag has an uneditable, independent number and is specially encrypted. You can change your password at any time as needed. You can manage sensors and intrusion detection devices, such as creating, deleting, modifying sensor properties, and moving sensors. The EPC system itself is already a good security system.

3.5 Ability to adapt to the environment

Electronic tags can adapt to a variety of environments and can read data correctly in either light or dark, wet or dry conditions. Whether in the storage or supply process, the electronic tags will not wear out.
