About the Solution

Metal Card Input

The metal card input module feeds cards reliably into the system. A metal card input module can be installed in a system in conjunction with a standard (plastic) card input module to support both metal and plastic cards in a modular system.

  • Optimized card picking technology to handle a variety of metal card substrates
  • Tray capacity of up to 500 metal cards

Metal Card Output

The metal card output module is designed with three trays: two trays for good cards and one tray for rejected cards. Utilized in multi-purpose configurations, it allows metal cards to exit the system (helping reduce track wear) or configured at the end of a dedicated metal card system.

  • Increase operator ease-of-use by adding an optional output monitor at the end of a system
  • A pause/resume button at the card output module allows the operator to stop or restart the production without returning to the system controller

Note: All metal cards should be tested for compatibility
