Laser engraving

Highly secure card personalization, engraved into the card surface

Fast, compact and with anti-counterfeiting features for specialized flat card issuance

Matica has developed cutting edge laser engraving technologies to deliver a comprehensive solution for governments and financial services organizations seeking to implement anti-counterfeiting measures for secure ID or financial cards.

Greyscale graphics and monochrome text are engraved directly into the surface of the card by using a high resolution laser beam. Cards are typically based on a polycarbonate (PC) substrate, but other plastics can also be used in certain circumstances.

Thanks to high resolution engraving (up to 1200 dpi) and integrated multiple card security options, Matica’s laser engravers provide outstanding protection against counterfeiting and forgery. Offered in both desktop and high volume centralized formats, Matica’s laser engraving range can be combined with other card personalization technologies for a full card issuance solution.
