PassPort 3

PassPort Machine for Gold Foil Embossing, Folding and Die-cutting

The layers which have been sewn and laminated in PassPort 1 and 2 are separated into single ups, folded and cut to size in a die cutting station using the PassPort 3 machine.

The passport covers can be gold embossed. All styles of passports and e-passports can be manufactured by combining PassPort 3 with our PassPort 1, 2 and 4 machines.
