Advantages of Smart Cards

A smart card is any pocket-sized card that has embedded integrated circuits. The benefits of smart cards are directly related to the volume of information and applications that are programmed for use on a card.

A single contact/contactless smart card can be programmed with multiple banking credentials, medical entitlement, driver’s license/public transport entitlement, loyalty programs and club memberships to name just a few. Multi-factor and proximity authentication can and has been embedded into smart cards to increase the security of all services on the card. For example, a smart card can be programmed to only allow a contactless transaction if it is also within range of another device like a uniquely paired mobile phone. This can significantly increase the security of the smart card.

Governments and regional authorities save money because of improved security, better data and reduced processing costs. These savings help reduce public budgets or enhance public services.

Individuals have better security and more convenience with using smart cards that perform multiple services. For example, they only need to replace one card if their wallet is lost or stolen. The data storage on a card can reduce duplication, and even provide emergency medical information.



The first main advantage of smart cards is their flexibility. Smart cards have multiple functions which simultaneously can be an ID, a credit card, a stored-value cash card, and a repository of personal information such as telephone numbers or medical history. The card can be easily replaced if lost, and, the requirement for a PIN (or other form of security) provides additional security from unauthorised access to information by others. At the first attempt to use it illegally, the card would be deactivated by the card reader itself.


The second main advantage is security. Smart cards can be electronic key rings, giving the bearer ability to access information and physical places without need for online connections. They are encryption devices, so that the user can encrypt and decrypt information without relying on unknown, and therefore potentially untrustworthy, appliances such as ATMs. Smart cards are very flexible in providing authentication at different level of the bearer and the counterpart. Finally, with the information about the user that smart cards can provide to the other parties, they are useful devices for customizing products and services.

Other general advantages of smart cards are:

·        Portability

·        Increasing data storage capacity

·        Reliability that is virtually unaffected by electrical and magnetic fields.

Plastic card equipment

Plastic card machines and equipment includes a series of specialised machinery for the production of plastic cards. This equipment can create any plastic card of any design and colour. This plastic card technology is able to ease the customer through the process of card manufacturing one step at a time. Card printing businesses find this new technology more convenient and it increases the production and it brings in more money.

  Plastic card equipment uses a material such as a roll or a sheet which is fed through a press where the special dies cut the material to form the shape of the cards. This is also known as blanking. A scrap of the material is extracted and the remaining cut outs and continues on a conveyor to speed up the process. The cards that are created are then removed and sorted through a card inspection system to ensure that they are made correctly and neatly. The card inspector systems also check if whether there are no defects within the card. Remember, that the card needs to be used to reflect in the database and it should be able to swipe properly so it is important that the final product is done correctly.

Before shipping the cards to the client or customer the card needs to be processed through a card counter. The card counter works in seconds to count the cards. Counting the cards manually will take forever the processor is more proactive and it can get the work is done on time and quick so that you can proceed with making more cards.
