Laminating lines for the production of plastic cards

Credit cads, ID cards, conventional and contactless cards: Our state-of-the-art technologies for the production of plastic cards enable us to master the everyday processes and challenges involved in the manufacture of cards of all kinds. With the modular design of our SMARTLAM laminating lines, we offer customers an individual line design for small to large production capacities. Your production requirements are comprehensively met and implemented by our SMARTLAM line.

The BÜRKLE SMARTLAM was first developed in the 80s for small to large series and has been installed more than 500 times worldwide until today. Our concepts for laminating plastic cards are defined by a multitude of application and production possibilities. With the short cycle solution, which BÜRKLE has already been using in other application areas and industries for years, a new technology for the plastic cards industry has been offered for some time now. As a result, the SMARTLAM portfolio offers a high degree of flexibility to enable cost-efficient and high-quality production for small, medium and large series.

Small series and special production

The single-level system with the rotary table is designed for the production of small output quantities. The multi-stage process with optional automation, vacuum and short-cycle function for single sheets meets the highest requirements for small and special production as well as for test and development applications.

Medium series and special production

The cost-efficient and space-saving solution LAC is characterized by a single-stage heating and cooling process. The parameters defined for the process (pressure, temperature) are controlled without interruption in the compact system. The number of levels can be selected individually. The LAC is used for medium and special functions.

Large series production

Our SMARTLAM CHK laminating line is the optimal solution for medium and large series production. The individually adaptable transfer process with separate heating and cooling press enables production at the highest level. The modular system offers a wide range of options and individualization of the number of levels and the size of the panels for the efficient production of plastic cards.
