Mühlbauer’s semi-automatic sheet hot stamping system SSH 2008 is used for applying security features on overlay or core sheets. Prior to the sheet lamination process, the hologram is embedded inside the document. This is a cost-efficient, economical and easy-to-operate solution that provides high-quality security features for different applications, including ID documents and passport holderpages. DOVID are processed from the reel and directly transferred to the core or overlay sheet. This is achieved through freely programmable parameters such as time, pressure and temperature. The carrier material is rewound onto the reel, thus saving space and reducing changeover time. An integrated vacuum system ensures smooth handling without damaging the sheets and guarantees a highly accurate placement of the hologram. This system can be flexibly integrated into any production environment – a fact which makes the SSH 2008 extremely versatile.
