PassPort 3 – Passport machine for gold foil embossing, folding and die-cutting

The layers that were sewn and laminated in PassPort 1 and 2 are separated into single ups, folded and cut to size with a die-cutter using the PassPort 3 machine. The passport covers can be gold embossed. All passport machines by Kugler-Womako adhere to the strict quality guidelines of the ICAO and ISO for “Machine Readable Passports (MRP) and electronic passports.” All styles of passports and e-passports can be manufactured by combining PassPort 3 with our PassPort 1, 2 and 4 machines.
