High speed lamination modules
Increase card durability and security with Matica’s Inline Laminating Modules (ILM)
Lamination can be used as a premium security measure to upgrade the level of forgery protection whilst also increasing the lifetime of the cards. The ILM has been configured to be significantly faster and more cost-effective, due to its modern industrial design.
It works with both clear laminates (for durability) as well as holographic laminates (for security) for maximum issuance flexibility. The ILM-LS model is for high speed single-sided lamination, while the robust ILM-DS takes care of dual-sided lamination requirements. The ILM is the fastest laminating module available on the market, with a speed of 16 seconds per card for single-sided and 30 seconds per card for dual-sided lamination.
Enhancing card security
Cards are laminated with the ILM by using a heat-sealing film. This film can contain holographic and other Visual Security Elements (VSEs) for enhanced protection. Matica offers a range of standard holographic designs in both patch laminate and continuous film formats. For the ultimate security protection, organisations can opt for a customized holographic laminate with VSEs that are unique to them – this approach is often adopted for government secure documents such as driving licenses and national ID cards.
- High-speed lamination – 16s per side
- Connects seamlessly to XID 8300 and 8600 printers
- Key locks and Kensington lock
- Increasing card durability and security
- National ID cards
- Driving licenses
- Dual-sided lamination
Optimize issuance costs and card life
Another important reason to laminate pre-personalized cards is to increase the durability and extend the life of the card, thanks to the enhanced mechanical and UV resistance of the lamination material. A card laminated with a 1.0 mil (35 micron) patch can have a lifecycle of up to 10 years – a timeframe often mandated for government/citizen ID schemes.
The ILM can be seamlessly combined with Matica’s XID 8300 and XID 8600 retransfer printers to create a seamless one card personalization solution.The module’s compact size and the availability of single or dual-sided models offers you additional flexibility to match your budget and requirements.
