Booklet Perforation & Numbering System

Mühlbauer’s PERSYS 6000 is a state-of-the-art booklet perforation and numbering system for passports and booklets according to ICAO 9303 The PERSYS 6000 is designed to meet highest industrial demands regarding modularity, integration of process modules as well as latest electronics and software technology. The machine covers all processes, necessary for high-class perforation and numbering requirements. In addition, the system can also be used for inkjet printing (impact print with sequent or random numbering also possible), chip initialization and / or encoding as well as labeling. The highlight is the new numbering unit with a unique matrix minting process; a Mühlbauer development already proven in the card personalization sector.
The operator friendliness was enhanced regarding ergonomic design and a new graphical user interface (GUI). Due to its highly flexible design, the PERSYS 6000 can be easily configured according to customer and project demands as well as extended to a fully automatic passport personalization system, even on-site.
