Edale, the UK manufacturers of printing and converting equipment, today announce that they will be exhibiting at the
forthcoming Cartes & IDentification show taking place on 6-8 November 2012, at the Paris Nordville Exhibition Centre, Paris.
Cartes is the ideal opportunity to discover the latest market trends and innovations, from chip cards, digital security to
contactless technology (transactions, telecoms, services and transport). Edale will shine the spotlight on their knowledge and
expertise in the manufacturing of bespoke machinery for the scratch card market, a growing market for the UK company.
“Over the past 10 years, Edale have seen a growth in demand for more efficient machinery for the production of telecom recharge
cards. Edale have steadily broadened their technological capabilities and this is demonstrated in the research and design of these high specification presses – many of which have been custom built and installed into various businesses focusing on security applications over a number of years” says Export Sales Director Bernhard Grob.
The fully servo driven Edale scratch card solution combines the finest print quality with innovative features ensuring high speed
changeovers, minimum downtime and minimum wastage. It features servo drives on each print head, providing pre-register,
auto-register and print length control features, whilst incorporating graphic printing, personalisation, scratch off application,
verification and finishing into a single process.
Productivity and flexibility are achieved by combining ‘traditional’ multi-stage manufacturing processes into a single modular
machine solution capable of manufacturing all conceivable formats of single and multi-pin cards; with the capacity to produce
up to 1,500,000 pins per hour.
Edale’s expertise in packaging, printing and converting combined with personalisation and scratch off solutions has re-written
the rules in terms of cost per pin and the variety of formats achievable from a single machine.
Recent security focused sales include an eight colour fully servo driven UV Gamma Scratch card line into South African
company Morvest Mithratech, a seven colour combination UV/IR scratch card line with a wide range of additional options into
Sprint Print and Packaging in Nepal- alongside a number of others which Edale are unable to publicise due to NDA’s being in
