The LP2100 passport personalisation machine automatically handles passports and e-passports in ICAO ID-3 size. Colour printing, laser engraving, various monochrome printing systems, and contactless chip encoding stations can be installed on the machine according to the specific project requirements. Thus a customised configuration with a high level of flexibility and standardisation can be realised. A sophisticated multi-step transportation mode allows parallel processing to reach a high throughput. Several software solutions create a high level of security and make operation very easy.
