Smart Cards

The smart card industry is moving very fast, with manufacturers introducing an ever more advanced array of new products with new types of functionality to the market. Technologies such as contactless, dual and multi-components cards are the smart cards manufacturers’ answer to the market needs for functionality, ease of use and security. The layer lamination which this new generation of smart cards requires brings its particular set of challenges to manufacturers.
