High-tech card production live at IFSEC


secure ID cards

IFSEC 2014, June 17-19, Excel Centre London, Stand C1950

The secrets of secure ID unveiled. ID specialist Databac Group will demonstrate how a complex process can be carried out simply and swiftly. The manufacturer will be using blank RFID cards and custom printing, encoding, embossing and adding a security feature, live at the show.

As a manufacturer with multiple licences, Databac can incorporate a number of technologies, including LEGIC, Mifare Classic, DESFire and NFC. The system on the stand will use Databac’s Dataimage v9.6 card personalisation software. This enables data input, live image and fingerprint capture and contactless card encoding. Output will be using Datacard’s new SD460, which prints and embosses custom security logos during the process.

“Our objective is to show how – with the right materials, equipment and set-up – companies can produce bespoke high-end cards in-house, ready for use in multiple applications like access control, time recording and vending,” says Databac managing director Charles Balcomb.

“Once correctly established, the process becomes straightforward. Databac ensures the cards are manufactured to the ideal specifications, with the required technologies, however niche. Our Dataimage software is powerful yet easy to use, with rich functionality that ensures all necessary data is captured and encrypted. Then, it’s a simple matter of printing and Datacard’s printer does the rest, including embossing and applying holograms if desired.”

Databac will be ready to discuss individual requirements with visitors throughout the show.

As a card manufacturer, Databac can offer a host of technology cards. On the stand, visitors will be able to see cards incorporating both contact and contactless chips, including Mifare, Legic, HID, ATMEL and Hitag. These will be shown with a range of security options that prevent copying and allow instant authentication.

Of course, for those who prefer to outsource the personalisation of their cards, Databac offers a professional bureau service from its offices in London and Barcelona.
