PassPort 4 – Passport number and chip programming

After the books have been sewn, laminated and cut to size using the Passport 1, 2 and 3, the PassPort 4 numbers the books with a gothic number and a laser perforation. Alternatively, a barcode of the passport number can be inserted into the book or printed onto a label. Chips can be simultaneously initialized and personalized for e-passports. 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 machine PassPort 4 with our PassPort 1, 2 and 3 machines.
