Personalization System for Long-life Color ID Cards

PERSOLINE is a flexible and modular production solution that enables cost effective full-color personalization of ID cards with high levels of durability and security. The system combines the benefits of several technologies: laser personalization, four-color DoD inkjet printing, digital UV varnishing and CoolShield security lamination.

PERSOLINE handles up to 6,000 cards per hour producing brilliant four-color personalization with a significantly lower cost for consumables as compared to legacy solutions. In combination with „CoolShield” security lamination, PERSOLINE delivers a strong performance/price ratio.

PERSOLINE can laser-mark a small gray-scale photograph and print the same image in color using DoD inkjet printing, then cover it with a UV varnish for durability. Another method for superior security is to add a holographic patch laminate covering all personalized content by applying a special CoolShield technique. The patch laminate is also highly durable and abrasion-resistant, since it contains a top plastic layer.
