Quatro Card Technology, a Canada-based full-line card manufacturer, has purchased the Atlantic Zeiser CHIPLINE high-speed RFID and smart card contactless personalization system to provide high-volume personalization of contactless RFID and smart cards, and to address the fast-growing EMV market.
CHIPLINE combines electrical and drop-on-demand graphical personalization in one fully integrated system, rather than requiring separate smaller machines. With its patented high-speed rotational “wheel” technology, the system can produce up to 25,000 cards per hour. It can also connect to external personalization management server systems for efficient variable data processing.
The new CHIPLINE system will enable Quatro Card Technology to produce a full range of contact and contactless plastic smart cards, tickets, and access control cards, including the upcoming EMV cards.
Quatro Card Technology is looking forward to receiving the new system and bringing it online in the second quarter of this year.
