Cartes 2013 – Atlantic Zeiser to showcase PERSOLINE ID and CARDLINE VERSA COLOR systems

Will demonstrate newest systems for personalizing low-cost, durable, full-color personal electronic identification cards

Atlantic Zeiser will be demonstrating a PERSOLINE ID card personalization system at this year’s CARTES Secure Connexions Event, to be held November 19-21, 2013, at the Paris Nord Villepinte exhibition center. Atlantic Zeiser will be in Hall 3, Booth D 061.

Atlantic Zeiser’s PERSOLINE ID system is a flexible, modular manufacturing solution that enables full-color personalization of electronic ID cards with high levels of durability and security. The system to be shown will demonstrate the benefits of 4C drop-on-demand (DoD) inkjet printing with digital UV varnishing, which as an option can be combined with laser personalization. In addition, at CARTES 2013 Atlantic Zeiser will also demonstrate new CoolShield™ lamination, a low-temperature-activated, tamper-evident protective layer for increased security and durability.

“Our PERSOLINE ID system is ideal for producing highly durable and secure personal electronic ID cards thanks to its unique combination of high-resolution DoD color inkjet and laser-based gray-scale imaging, multi-layer UV lamination and patches, and UV-based varnishing – all applied to proven long-life, high-value polycarbonate material,” said Friedbert Bayer, Director of Market & Product Management for Card Systems, Atlantic Zeiser. “Thanks to these innovations – along with efficient electrical personalization features and a high-speed workflow – durable and secure, full-color eID cards can now be produced at the lowest cost.”

In addition to live demonstrations of PERSOLINE ID, Atlantic Zeiser will also be highlighting the CARDLINE VERSA Color system, the company’s field-proven full-color card production solution. CARDLINE VERSA Color is a complete card factory that takes up a fraction of the footprint of conventional card manufacturing systems, providing low-cost card personalization for short and long runs.

PERSOLINE ID’s four-color DoD technology allows for direct printing on polycarbonate – the de facto standard for card quality and durability, as well as on many other plastic substrates. Using wear-resistant UV-based inks, DoD inkjet produces bright, vivid colors at up to 950 dpi resolution with superior light fastness. In combination with UV-curable varnishing or security lamination, the system provides secure, durable, cost-saving color personalization. In cases where “smart” electronic ID cards are needed, PERSOLINE ID allows for efficient contact or contactless electrical personalization, maintaining high system throughput even for long personalization times.

The PERSOLINE ID system is well-suited for personalizing government-issued ID cards, voter ID cards, health and welfare cards, driver’s licenses, and similar identification materials. It is available for shipment immediately.
