PassPort 4

PassPort Machine for Number and Chip Programming

After the books have been sewn, laminated and cut to size using the PassPort 1, 2R and 3 machines, the PassPort 4 numbers the books with a gothic number and/or a laser perforation. Alternatively, a barcode of the passport number can be applied into the book or printed onto a label. Optionally chips can be simultaneously verified and initialized for e-passports.

All styles of passports and e-passports can be manufactured by combining machine PassPort 4 with our PassPort 1, 2R and 3 machines.
