GSM 6000 and GSM 6000 PLUS

Cost-effictive Personalization of Pay-TV and SIM Cards (Single, Dual, Quarter)

The GSM 6000 series is a modular platform for the electrical and graphical personalization of SIM cards and Pay-TV cards. With up to 24,000 SIMs per hour, the system reaches the highest throughput in the market worldwide. Besides single and double SIM cards, the GSM 6000 PLUS is even able to process quarter SIMs.
The high-speed chip encoding solution combines a new combi head which is fully scalable. It requires no retrofitting and therefore guarantees for highest flexibility in production. With up to 128 parallel chip encoding units in 32 card slots, the system reaches an incomparable performance where even longer encoding times of up to 18 sec. can be sustained without any loss in speed.
A major advantage in regards to the graphical personalization stems from the integrated Mühlbauer high speed laser. It guarantees the highest laser 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.
