Autonomous machine dedicated to the inspection and control of offline cards , the Axode CardTracker benefits from the very latest real-time technologies , combined with the company's R&D design experience of more than 30 years.

This unique solution on the market allows multi-format control (ISO 7810 ID1 up to datapages) of cards both in terms of quality (color printing, lamination, security marks, etc.) and personalization (variable data, images, etc.) .

Thanks to its mechanical design, this machine allows the front and back inspection of cards in a single pass, without turning over.

The Axode CardTracker includes a transport based on toothed suction belts as well as electronic management to ensure that the movement of the card is extremely stable. This feature ensures high-precision image quality for reading data and inspecting very small details on card design.

Its specific mechanical design does not damage the surface of the cards: there is no friction at any time when the cards are transported through the machine.

The configuration of the Axode CardTracker is adjustable according to the final specifications of the customer. This concerns the number of entry and exit magazines, RFID, laser engraving, UV control, infrared, holograms ...


The Axode CardTracker is very compact, limiting the operator's movements. Its design was designed to allow fatigue-free use, avoiding all operator gestures when handling cards at height. As a rule, the Axode CardTracker is equipped with the Axode 180neo2 .
