Sheet personalization is the personalization of single foil layers. For the production of polycarbonate based ID documents with embedded inkjet picture, core or overlay layers are printed individually from reel-to-sheet.
During the personalization process, the plastic cards or smart cards are personalized according to the individual project or customer requirements. The personalization process includes different sub-systems and technologies such as laser engraving and high-end printing systems (thermal printing, dye-sublimation), lamination or embossing.
The final process step is the mailing of the personalized cards. The cards are attached to carrier sheets by label dispensing and folded. Additional inserts can be added optionally.
In order to achieve highest quality in the results, every process step of the production chain is continuously checked and controlled by quality assuring procedures. The testing depth and numbers of control samples are adjustable to the respective needs of the processes and the product specifications. Specific procedures, measurements and statistic process knowledge guarantee optimal results ensuring highest yields.
