Plastic card collating – collating process – automatic collating

Before laminating, the different layers and printed core sheets have to be collated. This collating is done by automatic collating machinery. Automating this process ensures maximum precision between both the printed sheets, overlays and contactless inlays.

The complete collating process is controlled by sensors and cameras and adjusted if needed by an advanced computer system. This computer-controlled process ensures a 100% correct handling of digitally personalised sheets and avoids front and back mismatches.
