Atlantic Zeiser to highlight CARDLINE VERSA Color and other card personalization systems at ICMA 2014

Company will feature industry-leading solutions for producing personalized gift, loyalty and EMV cards, plus mailing systems at lowest cost per card

Atlantic Zeiser will highlight the company’s CARDLINE VERSA Color, CHIPLINE, and PERSOMAIL systems at the ICMA 2014 Card Manufacturing and Personalization Expo. The event will be held April 6-9, 2014, at the Harbor Beach Marriott in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Atlantic Zeiser will be in Booth #3.

CARDLINE VERSA Color is an all-in-one full-color card production solution with inline personalization, built to meet the needs of the upscale gift, loyalty and membership card markets. It’s a complete high-speed card factory in a fraction of the footprint. Featuring an all-digital 4-color 950-dpi resolution DoD printing module, it handles short runs in the most cost-effective way. A UV coating module can provide full edge-to-edge or spot varnishing, or special 3D-type effects, and the system handles standard CR80 card products and functions for almost all formats, including odd-shaped cards, hang tags, and double CR80 cards.

CARDLINE VERSA Color offers a high degree of flexibility, and is available in various customer-specific configurations to handle both short runs and conventional long runs. The range of available personalization technologies includes magnetic encoding, color and monochrome inkjet systems, UV coating, cameras, and labelers. An additional flipping module allows for a two-sided configuration. And because Atlantic Zeiser DoD printing technology uses lower-cost consumables than conventional legacy systems – and an all-digital workflow is more productive over many short runs – the system produces high quality cards at the lowest cost.

Atlantic Zeiser’s CHIPLINE combines electrical and drop-on-demand graphical personalization in one fully integrated solution, rather than requiring separate machines. Thanks to its high-speed rotational “wheel” technology – a patented innovation – the system can produce up to 25,000 cards per hour, making it a true high-volume workhorse for EMV and MIFARE applications. It can also connect to external personalization management server systems for efficient variable data processing. CHIPLINE is compliant with VISA and MASTERCARD physical and logical security requirements.

PERSOMAIL is a modular mid-range solution for personalized printing of letter mailers used to deliver CR80-sized bank and identity cards. A range of end-to-end system configurations is available, including card feeding and reading, letter printing, along with card attaching, matching, folding and inserting components that can be individually configured for maximum flexibility. The system can handle standard cards originating from any production source, including flat or embossed formats. With a throughput of up to 3,000 products per hour, short set-up times, and a high degree of system security and integrity, PERSOMAIL is a field-proven and reliable system for the banking and ID card industry.

CARDLINE VERSA Color, CHIPLINE, and PERSOMAIL systems are available for delivery immediately.
