Lamination Plates

A high quality plate is characterized by a spotless surface. Every scratch, dent or stripe lowers the achievable quality of the cards. At Schwan we are able to finish both sides of the plate with a defined, consistent Roughness Value (RA) and brightness level. A high quality plate contains a steady heat conductivity and heat distribution.

Aluminium Plate Card Production

Aluminum Press Plates have the mayor advantages. They are lighter than stainless steel and provide better protection for inlaid chips because of the softer material. These plates are mostly used for plastic card production, specially for Inlay Cards and Pre-Lams (White Cards).

For these plates, we select only defect-free surfaces in order to guarantee high-quality output. Furthermore, we approve the flatness of the plates. We receive the master sheets with brushed finish. Therefore, only matt results are possible. Different RA-Values on request. Every plate is produced on demand, according to the specific requirements of the lamination process. Size and special treatments are hand customized here in Viersen Germany.
  • Master Sheet Finish: light Matt - Both sides of the plates have the same finish and degree of brightness.
  • Available Thickness: 0.8 mm
