We don't just make devices. We set standards

Making top-quality devices and machines is one thing. Developing technologies is another. And that is exactly what has always driven us: the continuous search for new and optimum solutions to suit the requirements of our customers.

So it is no surprise that our team in Aftholderberg is always coming up with innovations that set standards.

1985 The world's first magnetic strip analyser 1985 The world's first HICO encoder 1987 The first 3-track coding station for personalising stations 1991 Rinas HSR - the first high-speed magnetic card reader (6,000 cards per hour) 1994 Rinas TCS - the first airline ticket coding system (100,000 tickets an hour with 4 tracks; today more than 200,000 tickets an hour with 6 tracks) 2001 Rinas PCS - this was the first paper ticket coding machine which made it possible to encode and read 10,000 cards an hour on one track 2005 Rinas HWR - this new high-speed encoder makes it possible to encode and read HICO and LOCO cards in ONE device without any mechanical exchange of encoding heads having to take place throughput of up to 18,000 cards an hour 2007 Rinas SWR - The Rinas SWR encoder, designed for round-the-clock deployment in card personalization stations, achieves a continuous throughput of up to 3,500 standard credit-card sized (paper and plastic) magnetic cards, in both HICO and LOCO, per hour. However, it is the quality of its encoding and its operational lifetime that set this unit apart.
R80 - RFID tag encoder comprising a card stacker/separator, different RFID antennas for the encoding, good/bad sorting and processed card collection bin
2008 Rinas TCS - a 5 track HICO encoding unit for continuous feed paper tickets enclosed within a dedicated printing machine for Metro ticketing systems 2009 Business partnership set up with Barnes International Ltd. for the distribution and support of advanced magnetic card analyzers within the German, Austrian and Swiss territories 2010 Rinas LWR - A compact universal encoder for RFID, magnetic stripe and SmartCard applications achieving a throughput of up to 2,400 standard credit-card sized (paper and plastic, HICO and LOCO) cards per hour. Designed for continuous operation, it can be integrated within existing production environments where flexibility and encoding accuracy are decisive factors. Easy access for component exchange follows a "Think Green" code of conduct that reduces downtimes caused by device removal in the event of a malfunction, economizes on spare-parts stock, and puts a stop to "use once and dispose" mentality
Rinas ISS - an Inline Supervisory System for magnetic card personalization processes that can check for amplitude and jitter discrepancies at full speed in a production environment. Current random sampling methods applied to finalized cards rely on an external analyzer to perform this task – any discrepancy can be a costly and a time consuming business. With the Rinas inline analyzer, this type of checking is performed for each card during manufacture, and with limits being set by the customer, any card failing the test can be identified and processed accordingly
2011 Magnetic head development that permits the encoding on all 3 HICO tracks simultaneously at optimum jitter levels – even up to 4000 Oe! Operating at encoding speeds up to 1.2 m/s, Rinas once again sets new levels of encoding quality with its new head.
New encoder / personalization machine, the CS-LWR, for processing up to 3.600 cph. This encoding system is a true multi-talented device as it can personalize all 3 different card types. Besides its unique encoding characteristics and longevity, this system also comprises a scanner. In short, the CS-LWR satisfies the highest of demands.
The HWR_OEM, a combination of magnetic encoder unit and read head, was developed for the integration in a customized transport scenario. With transport speeds up to 1m/s, the unit achieves a throughput of approx. 14,000 cph irrespective of the distance between cards.
2012 HP based print module for plastic and paper cards. The Rinas DTM printing system enables monochrome printing at resolutions up to 600 dpi x 300 dpi to be achieved during the personalization process. The compact unit comprises one or more print heads, a curing unit and naturally the card transport mechanism for ID-1 sized cards (others optional). The control electronics are integrated within the print unit and can be addressed via external RS232 commands.
Semi-LWR – professional magnetic card encoder for OEM integration. For both machine manufacturers and system integrators alike, the task of interrupting an existing card transport mechanism for the purpose of introducing an encoder, for example, can be a daunting one. The Semi-LWR responds to these challenges by taking advantage of the control electronics and just those mechanical components of the highly successful LWR encoder that are responsible for the magnetic head movement. The card transport is then untouched and remains the full responsibility of the machine manufacturer.
2013 Further development of our print unit. Development and integration of a software layer to handle the personalization data that unites the customer's wishes with the desired output to appear on the card.
Optimizing the throughput of the SWR encoder. The implementation a new 3-track universal magnetic read/write head enables the throughput to be increased from 3,500 cph to 6,000 cph without compromising the encoding quality.
2014 Multi RFID Card Encoder for the parallel encoding of RFID cards. A new development known as the RFT that targets applications where individual RFID card personalization is more time consuming. Parallel encoding of up to 6 cards reduces the effective encoding time yielding a superior throughput. The unit can be used with the Rinas card separators and stackers, print and scanner units as well as magnetic encoding modules. 2015 Continuous Encoder for RFID / MagStripe Tickets. The RFE encoder has been designed to process both continuous and perforated tickets of differing lengths and widths. All current RFID standards have been catered for as has ISO7811 for MagStripe encoding of HICO and LOCO tickets. With this unit the tickets can be printed on both sides simultaneously using a monochrome print head for final personalization; a scanner unit can be installed for comparative and quality measures and faulty tickets can be tagged and logged.2016 Rinas SRM – A newly developed, ultra-smooth, card transport system enabling scanning of cards (top and bottom) combined with a universal encoder for RFID and SmartCard production. The transport system can be isolated from the universal encoder so that an individual RFID reader can gather stored information from the card prior to final MagStripe encoding via the Rinas SWR or LWR, for example. This standalone complete encoding configuration is known as the CS-SWR or CS-LWR respectively.2017 TTD – A thermal transfer printer unit for almost borderless monochrome coverage of plastic ID-1 cards at production speeds of up to 2,000 cards per hour depending on the print length. This unit is the ideal companion to the established Rinas CS-LWR universal encoding station.
