CARTES 2014 – Atlantic Zeiser to showcase PERSOLINE ID

Will demonstrate perfect system for personalizing full-color ID identification cards at lowest cost

Atlantic Zeiser, a global solutions provider of personalization and coding systems, will be demonstrating a PERSOLINE ID card personalization system at this year’s CARTES Secure Connexions Event, to be held November 4-6, 2014, at the Paris Nord Villepinte exhibition center. Atlantic Zeiser will be in Hall 3, Booth C 070.

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 2014 Atlantic Zeiser will also demonstrate the CoolShield lamination, a low-temperature-activated, tamper-evident protective layer for increased security and durability.

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.

In addition to live demonstrations of PERSOLINE ID, Atlantic Zeiser will also be highlighting further card personalization solutions for ID, banking and commercial card applications. ALPHA ONE is a compact mid-range laser ID card personalization system for production volumes up to 3,000 cards per hour. It offers contact or contactless personalization, laser marking and MLI-based imaging capabilities. CARDLINE VERSA Color is the company’s field-proven full-color card production solution with inline personalization for gift, loyalty, membership and promotional cards – a perfect manufacturing system, providing low-cost cards for short and long runs.

All Atlantic Zeiser card personalization systems can be optionally integrated with the company’s Personalization Management Platform (PMP), a highly secure client/server-based system that manages card production, personalization and mailing. Whether running one machine or an entire factory, with the PMP orders can be automatically received from customers, scheduled and configured to optimize workflow and expand revenue potential. In mixed environments, the PMP can control an entire operation across multiple factories, including Atlantic Zeiser systems and older legacy machines.
