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.

Hardened Steel Plate Card Production

Hardened Press plates are more resistant to scratches or other damages to extend the lifetime of the products. These plates are mostly used for plastic card production, for example smart cards and bank cards. The plates are made of stainless steel. Furthermore, we approve the flatness of the plates. Due to the hardening process, these plates need to be polished to assure the necessary quality of the surface. Every plate is produced on demand, according to the specific requirements of the lamination process. Size, finish and special treatments like positioning holes are hand customized here in Viersen Germany.
  • Master Sheet Finish: Polished - Both sides of the plates have the same finish and degree of brightness.
  • Available Thickness: 0.8 mm
