Founded in Wuppertal (Germany), 4PLATE is a joint company of C.T.LAY (Italy), Pro Gravur (Switzerland) and PlascoTec (Germany) dedicated to the production of high technology lamination plates. The group is fully integrated with the most advanced technologies starting from plate production to the engraving of security features and plate surface treatments for anti-stick properties as well as surface hardening. The know-how of 4PLATE comes from 25 years experience in the production of security features, production of lamination plates and engineering expertise in Plasma surface treatments. 4PLATE is present worldwide.
Lamination plate made of Stainless steel, hardened stainless steel, press pad and cassete system:
Available in 0.6, 0.8 and 1 mm their lamination plates are ready for the lamination process. 4STEEL plates are 100% controlled and packed inside a protective PE interlayer. No need to peel off the film.Option: Special cutting like half moon shape, special roughness, flow stop technology (matt borders), incremental numbering of each plate.
4STEEL material is compatible for all type of security features such as T1 Gloss Mirror, T1/2 Semi Gloss, T2 Silk,T3 Matt, T Supermatt.
For hardened stainless steel, Extremesteel combines high scratch resistance with long-term stability necessary for the demanding card manufacturing environment.
A micro hardness of up to 500 HV guarantees extended lifetimes compared to standard stainless steel plates, yielding higher productivities.
Micro hardness of up to 1.000 HV available soon.
Lamination press pads is available in their warehouse in different master sizes to be delivered in each dimension and quantity according to customer request.
– KN22 is the well known pad for PVC suitable with lamination temperature up to 180°c
– YOM01FGK is an efficient and long life pad for PC, PET and PVC for temperature up to 250°C.
Their cassette systems are compatible with every lamination press type. In case of security features on both sides we can guarantee a very high precision thanks to our system working in register with pins and half moon cut. We can modify existing systems. 4KSET and cover plates can be made of aluminum or stainless steel with or without coating technology.
Engraving Technology and Security Features
All engraving technologies are available in 4STEEL
Lenses technology is used to create moving images that can be personalized by laser engraving. Multiple images are possible. 4PLATE can produce all type of lenses in different shapes and profiles. MLI/CLI can be also produced on raised level (on the plate) in order to be in depth in the card after lamination.
Other technologies and applications are available from 4Plate, such as: IDoptic, Motion and 3D Lenses, Microtext, Braille, Latent Images, Structure, Patterns, Texture, Guilloche, 3DForms, Positioning Pins, and Strips for Datapage hinges.
