GSM 10000

Personalization System for GSM, UMTS, Pay-TV and DUAL-SIM Cards with Combi Coding & Laser Engraving


Mühlbauer’s GSM 10000 is a high-speed personalization system, for electrical and graphical personalization of GSM, UMTS and Pay-TV cards. Each machine provides highest operator and service friendliness as well as impeccable quality. With 128 contact-based encoding stations and four high-speed lasers a throughput of up to 20,000 SIMs per hour can be reached. A major advantage in regards to the graphical personalization stems from the integrated Mühlbauer high speed laser. It guarantees the highest laser beam source lifetime of up to 75,0000h (10 years+) and at the same time it offers higher quality, e.g. deep black and more robust graphical personalization result. Up to four Mühlbauer high speed laser systems can be integrated. A vision system, for the in-line control and / or verification of the engraved data can be integrated too. The new designed graphical user interface supports the operator in the best possible way, to have an overview about job handling and also machine status on one monitor. The GSM 10000 is equipped with the proven personalization platform MCES and can easily be adapted and integrated into a production and personalization management system such as MB INCAPE.
