Chip cards

are special data carrier versions of the hard-plastic card which generally correspond to ISO 7816. Depending on the implanted semiconductor, the cards are classified as memory cards, memory cards with protective functions ("intelligent memories") and processor cards with integrated math capability (Smart Card). In addition to the widespread use of chip cards with a standard specified position for the gold-plated contact surface, contactless chip cards will take the market by storm in the future.

Contactless

chip cards or chip cards working without contact use the principle of wireless high-frequency data transfer. The range between the card and the communicating card read/write device depends on the chip antenna system implanted on the card as well as on the concept of the read/write devices and their received and transmit power. Powerful "hands-free" systems work at at least half a metre distance in read/write operation, with encrypted data transfer and in "inter collision" operation (i.e. no detection of neighbouring cards).

Embossing

Embossing is a process which came into being with bank notes. Today it is used primarily as a method for personalising plastic cards in the financial world. The significant aspect is the general practice of directly taking personal data from the embossed relief using an "imprinter".

Films

These are made of plastic (see Materials) and are the actual carrier and physical elements of the plastic card. Films from the plastics industry are processed in all kinds of forms regarding the basic material, the surface finish, thickness, filling materials and temperature behaviour to make plastic cards. Unlike laminates, mono cards consist of a single film. Solid material?reasonable to handle from around 0.25 mm thickness?is mostly used with thin plastic cards. Such plastic cards are of course already printed on delivery?with corresponding limitations in terms of surface protection. For the mono version with ISO dimensions, extruded plastic material is used as an alternative to film.

Guilloche

is the term for the execution of what is usually an artistically applied ornamental design of closed line patterns?used e.g. with cheques and bank notes.

Hybrid cards

combine several data carrier functions on one card. The typical combination is of a chip module and a magnetic strip. The combination of the contactless with the contact chip card is becoming increasingly interesting. The aim of all these solutions is for a card to be able to be used in all kinds of applications, as well as the organised transition from one data carrier concept to another.

Initialising

is a process of preparing the data carrier functions of a card for specific applications. Typical tasks are, for example, creating the data structures and saving application-specific characteristics.

Lettershop

A lettershop takes care of getting the finished card with the necessary information quickly and at a low price to the end user. This usually includes the writing of the covering letter, its personalisation, attaching the relevant card and comparing the data of the card and covering letter. Special machines are used to simultaneously fold, add enclosures, envelope and frank. With correspondingly high runs, the process also sorts the letters according to post codes and postage-optimised posting. A good technical solution makes it possible for the recipient of the letter to remove the plastic card from the covering letter without any of the adhesive sticking to the card.

Material

The basic material for plastic cards is traditionally PVC (polyvinyl chloride). In the correct recycling process, PVC is also an ecologically friendly material. For higher temperatures of use, ABS (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer) and PC (polycarbonate) are sometimes used; sometimes, although less often, PE (polyethylene) and PET.

Print

Printing the plastic card is part of the process of manufacturing the card body for top-quality cards and takes place before laminating, i.e. the hot pressing of the films. The core films of the mostly 4-layer film package are printed and then covered by highly transparent overlay films. The print is thus surface-sealed. Four-colour offset print in accordance with the European colour scale or coordinated in individual colours in accordance with the HKS or Pantone matching systems is the dominant procedure. When special requirements are made of the coverage properties or when using metallic colours, screen printing is used.

Readers

are responsible for reading out information from the data carrier of the plastic cards according to the relevant medium with different technical solutions and prices. The device technology for chip cards is usually possible for read/write operation without any additional cost. Simple readers (e.g. swipe readers/pull-through scanners) are available for magnetic strips; safe writing of the magnetic layer, however, requires motorised devices (encoders). Some systems use the infrared or inductive principle. In these procedures, normally only the unchangeable coding can be read by the devices.

Scopes of demand

have a considerable influence on pricing. The basic costs for setting up the powerful multi-colour presses in offset printing as well as other preparatory work play a large part in determining the unit price of printed hard-plastic cards. This is why the print run in a card object is often decisive for its economic efficiency.

Structure and dimensions

The structure and dimensions of hard-plastic cards are generally in accordance with the ISO 7810 norm. The corresponding specifications on the "financial transaction card" result in the specifications on measurements: length x width x height. Top-quality plastic cards are made of several layers and then laminated into an inseparable card body using defined pressure, heating and cooling processes. The layout of the card is protected from abrasion and manipulation with transparent overlay films.
