For Dual Interface and Chip Cards

This high speed machine is the fastest and most efficient machine for the industrial production of dual interface cards.

Cavity milling, contact milling of the antenna bumps, application of conductive glue and chip module implanting is carried out in one line in a fully automated process working from card feed magazine to card delivery magazine with an output of up to 5,500 cards/h. The specially designed and patented milling tower mills down precisely to the antenna contact in a separate step after the actual chip cavity was formed by the milling tower.

This separate production step allows highest production speed and guarantees a constant chip module level in the card. Highly precise dispensing systems apply the dots of conductive glue that ensure a secure and reliable connection between antenna and chip module.

Each individual card is automatically measured and tested for functionality (with or without a contact module). Of course, standard chip cards can also be produced on the MI-6000. 

Solid engineering, first-class components and industrial robot technology ensure a reliable function of this high speed machine in a 3-shift operation.
