Multiple means of protection, some of them from the security printing world, are used today to fight against counterfeiting , but the performance of these means is only effective if they are correctly implemented.

Consequently, card production processes must integrate Axode control and traceability tools, either directly on existing machines, or by means of the Axode CardTracker, a standalone machine dedicated to cards manufacturing control.

Cards printing includes information that requires a very high level of protection, either because it certifies the identity of a person ( identity cards, driving licenses, bank cards, access control, etc. . ), or because it constitutes a monetary value (prepaid cards, payment cards, gift cards, etc. )

Identification, quality, traceability

and production supervision

Axode's global security solution extends from mastery of the field and the industrial constraints of cards printers, to the traceability of their products . This solution is the only one capable of operating within a multi-function machine park, and concretely results in real-time camera inspection of all stages of production, in particular:

Images:  conformity and quality of printed images, colorimetry, color alignment

Variable data: concordance between data, between images, sequence, completeness

Cutting: centering, quality

Affixing: position, presence and quality of the glue

Invisible inks: presence, conformity, intensity, colorimetry, position ...

Hologram: presence, position, quality of deposit, image centering ...

Holographic tape: presence, position, quality and integrity

Magnetic tape: presence, position, quality and integrity


Scratch-off:  presence, position, quality and integrity

Codes  : grading

Numbering: readability check, sequence, database concordance

Lamination: quality of the surface finish, position of the engravings, flatness, micro-text

Selective varnish: presence, position, quality

CLI: presence, position, quality of the lens

OVI: presence, position, quality, colorimetry

Transparent security window: presence, position, quality, transparency, alignment

Embossing and braille: quality, position, readability

RFID:  i dentification, reading quality


Contact smart chip:  presence, position

Traceability: integrity and completeness of production, production reports
