Skylam™ - an innovative prelaminated card inlay - complementing card manufacturers and security printers to create clear windows in polycarbonate documents in the simplest and most efficient manner, almost overnight.
Combined with other security features or simply used to laser engrave card holders’ secondary portraits, clear windows are being adopted worldwide as a trend to elevate documents overall security. However, building quality windows industrially is very often expensive and complicated. It involves complex and slow manufacturing processes, additional chip yield losses, increased material wastage and usually fastidious manual operations. Arjo Systems has developed Skylam™ to by-pass these hurdles in a snap.
Skylam™ inlays possess pre-built windows, where shapes and locations can be customized to meet design needs and fit with production layouts. They are used exactly as contactless card prelaminates would be, thus assembled and laminated with standard card making equipment. Skylam™ inlays are compatible with dual-interface, contactless, contact and chipless constructions.
"Skylam™ inlays usage is virtually plug-and-play. Any card manufacturer or national printer already working with polycarbonate would then be able to produce high-end, secure cards with windows in a record time, while meeting the most stringent international durability standards. Skylam™ eliminates the need for machine CAPEX or R&D and provides more design capabilities than traditional window making techniques. This innovation makes high-end technologies available to local document makers worldwide, and is naturally the perfect companion for SOMA™, our line-up of eID chip OS”, says Manuel Deloche, VP Government ID.
Skylam™ inlays perfectly accommodate additional security features such as Mirage™, arguably the most memorable and secure level 1 security feature of the market today, making top-notch security more widely available on a global scale.
