National ID Card
The national ID card project for the Republic of Indonesia started in January 2012. It was commissioned as a result of the national census which indicated the necessity of advanced ID documents for the entire Indonesian population. That is why 112million contactless ID cards with a NXP chip module were determined as project volume. Within only three months, a state-of-the-art production site and a high-secure personalization center meeting the latest security standards were set up in Jakarta. They are not only seamlessly integrated into the existing infrastructure, but also connected to the governmental national database. In addition to cutting-edge production and personalization machines – including thermo-transfer full color printing units – the sites were also provided with extensive software equipment like the production management system MB INCAPE. Furthermore, a high-end inspection machine, which thoroughly checks the quality of every blank document, ensures a zero-fault rate.
The extremely fast setup, the complete delivery and the comprehensive know-how transfer ensured the awarding of the project contingent and set the world record for a project of this size. Within only eighteen months, the complete demand of ID cards was personalized with a throughput of 500.000 cards per day. This was one of the biggest and most challenging ID card projects in the company’s history.
