The process includes the inspection of surface (scratches), print (color deviation, position of elements in relation to card edge or other elements, etc.), UV-print, holograms and even complex inspections such as variable ink. Since the systems have been developed for ID card projects, all inspection technologies of state-of-the-art ID card machines are available, e.g. electrical testing of contactless cards. The process optionally includes the sorting of cards according to different criteria (bad card sorting, layout sorting, etc.).
