Hologram Applicator: MicroPOISE

The most popular machine in our hologram applicator range includes our innovative SENTRY security access control system. SENTRY allows the use of MicroPOISE to be carefully controlled at all times, helping to prevent organised internal fraud or theft of valuable documents.

Document Security Systems Using OVD’s

The MicroPOISE is a desktop hot stamping foil application machine specifically designed for the document security systems market. Its unique design allows anyone to use the machine safely to print a high quality security feature (hologram, Kinegram, Trustseal, Datafoil, DuogramHD etc.) with minimal training and/or disruption to existing tasks. Variable thickness documents up to five millimeters in thickness can be hand fed without any adjustment to machine settings.

Holographic Security

The increased use of plastic cards has resulted in the ever-increasing use of holographic security to assist in the prevention of fraud. The MicroPOISE automatic plastic card feeder is now widely used in bureau applications where batch hologram application can be processed quickly and at low cost under the same strict security controls as other card manufacturing processes. MicroPOISE is fast to set up and therefore suits the common need to re-issue lost or stolen ID cards quickly and cost effectively as and when required.

Hologram Press - Automatic Sheet Feeder

Hologram Press - Automatic Sheet Feeder

Designed to process A4 documents, the MicroPOISE automatic sheet feeder hologram press is perfect for applying security features to University Certificates, Cheques, Valuation Certificates and Bonds etc. The unique sheet transport system allows the application of sixteen holograms in one pass of the document through the hologram press. Processing sheet fed tickets, cards or labels is now very quick and cost effective. Documents can be personalised and processed in-house without the need for using sub-contractors and the associated security risk of non-secure transport.

Counterfeit Security: Datafoil

Transparent Security Foils

Continuous paper documents such as cheques, bankers drafts and tickets are still widely used. The application of transparent hot stamping foils to protect variable data against alteration is one of the most common applications for the MicroPOISE machine (Datafoil).

 The MicroPOISE automatic sprocket feeder has a user-friendly programmable paper movement system that allows the user to store each ‘job’ to reduce repeated set-up time.


Transparent Security Foils

Datafoil is a unique counterfeit security feature to protect variable data against undetectable alteration. Counterfeits discovered on cheques and ID documents are commonly found to have had the data changed in some way to misrepresent identity or the value of the document. A semi-transparent security hot stamping foil is combined with our Datafoil die technology to make any attempt at alteration much more obvious.less
