CardMaster One system gives personal touch from IAI
IAI will be talking about a forthcoming platform for government and bank card personalisation at CARTES based on its CardMaster One system, which it is currently in the process of redesigning.
The current system, used to personalise Dutch and Swedish identity cards among others, will launch as a new platform in the summer of 2015. Following the introduction of the new BookMaster One platform last year, the forthcoming platform will allow customers to choose their own conﬁguration thanks to its modular set-up. Using the new platform, customers will be able to scale up the system throughput from 200 cards per hour up to 4,000 cards per hour, depending on individual project requirements. The system will also be capable of being upgraded in the ﬁeld, enabling it to adapt to any future innovations. IAI says the system is being designed for intensive industrial use, user friendliness and easy and quick maintenance that should result in a reliable production process and ‘realistic’ ownership costs. The new CardMaster One system will also feature multiple input and output hoppers, allowing customers to work with several types of cards in one batch.
The cards are identiﬁed by reading a number or barcode or by reading a number from the chip. It enables customers to apply personalisation technologies including contact- and contactless-chip encoding, laser engraving on PET, PVC and polycarbonate cards, ImagePerf laser perforation on PET and polycarbonate cards, colour printing and lamination on PVC cards, embossing and topping and Magstripe encoding as well as indent front/rear. With an integrated means to verify applied processes, the new CardMaster One system is suited to government and bank card personalisation.
