High-speed and high-end quality inspection in best bank note quality introduced
Variuscard is very pleased about introducing a new inspection machine for the card production. The self-learning industrial inspection machine convinces with an incredible speed – over 600 cards can be checked per minute. With the help of 6 Ultra HD cameras, it is now possible to control every single card, safe a picture and check for printing or surface defects. With a pin-sharp camera resolution you can see errors and bumps better than with the human eye.
The fault detection technology is based on AI (Artificial Intelligence) and machine learning
The new machine in our quality control department is not only incredibly fast and controls with outstanding accuracy, it even learns to do it better every day. Artificial intelligence makes it possible for the machine to get better and better. This technical achievement has been developed by the Chinese National Bank, contains best cameras from Switzerland, and the elaborate system itself comes from the Chinese State Printing House. 32 core CPUs work to accomplish this incredible achievement at the same time.
A technique that is otherwise used only for banknotes and passports is now used in card production for the first time. The machine can also check security prints such as invisible UV prints, metallic prints, writing panels or glitter finishing, and also checks the right position of magnetic strips and chips.
The only inspection machine in the world that can verify personalized cards and numbering
As one out of few card manufacturers who can personalize the cards under the laminate and therefore often called for productions of particularly secure cards, we attach great importance to appropriate security measures. Not only pure blank cards are checked, but also already finished personalized cards. Name, photo and / or barcode are already on the card under a protective laminate layer. Therefore, it is important that misprinted cards are disposed of immediately to prevent misuse and comply with privacy policies.
Safe and GDPR-compliant card printing
What is unique is that this inspection machine handles quality control and saves incorrect cards in a database. The wrongly printed cards are destroyed immediately and only the database is used for post-productions. So the error rate is minimized and the production speed is drastically increased.
Absolutely constant quality at the highest level
Previously, the cards have been checked manually because there was no system that was fast enough or good enough. In addition, the control was subjective and human factors (fatigue, stress, daily constitution) influenced the control. Now it is possible to check all cards at a constant level and at lightning speed.
