Business Editors/High-Tech Writers


PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 18, 2003

Datacard Group today introduced a new card issuance system with all the speed and power of its current 9000 Series card issuance system, plus a smartly redesigned workspace and a smart card module that offers the power and flexibility required for high-volume EMV programs. The company announced the Datacard(R) 9000E Series card issuance system today at CARTES 2003 in Paris.

In addition to the space-saving flat-screen control panel and high-speed smart card module, the Datacard 9000E system offers a full range of personalization modules. The system can be configured with a variety of high-performance capabilities, including embossing, indent printing, topping, graphics printing, magnetic stripe encoding, smart card personalization, label affixing, laser engraving, card delivery and more. The system can be configured with as many as 20 modules.

"For more than three decades, Datacard(R) high-volume card issuance systems have set clear industry standards for maximum throughput, proven reliability and advanced personalization capabilities," said Mike Schnaus, vice president of marketing and corporate development for Datacard Group. "This modular system builds on that proven heritage and brings our latest technologies and capabilities together into one powerful package."

Schnaus said he expects the Datacard 9000E system will be a popular solution for traditional high-volume card programs with aggressive productivity goals. The 9000E system offers superior power, reliability and flexibility.

"Card issuers can configure our high-speed smart card module with as many as 11 programming stations," Schnaus said. "This flexibility allows them to expand the power of their smart card modules as application sizes and card volumes increase. It is clearly one of the most productive solutions for high-volume EMV card issuance on the market today."

Datacard Group provides software, systems and professional services needed to build profitable card programs. The company's portfolio includes a complete line of smart card solutions, secure digital identity systems and card personalization systems. Datacard Group, which is privately held and based in Minnetonka, Minn., serves customers in more than 120 countries. (
