ID documents

The Scientific Instruments JSC company manufactures high-tech equipment for graphic and electronic personalization of plastic identification documents. The company has a certified personalization center where the equipment of its own production is installed.


Personalization of a modern ID document is usually a procedure of adding personal data of the future document owner to a blank card. The personal data may include a photo, a signature, a date of birth and a date of document issue, as well as biometrics, like a scanned fingerprint and so on.

Modern ID documents use graphic and electronic personalization. Electronic personalization is possible if the blank card contains a contact or a contactless chip with sufficient capacity for recording the required data. Graphic personalization can be implemented by traditional image printing methods such as polygraph printing or thermal transfer printing, however, the method of laser personalization ensures better counterfeit protection.

Since 2005, the Scientific Instruments JSC company has been continuously developing equipment for personalization of ID documents of a new generation.

The company has designed a model range of equipment for personalization of new generation ID documents, including the Shtrikh-K hardware and software system that is capable of carrying out a full personalization cycle for new generation passport and visa documents. The system includes a laser personalization unit that uses a digital personalization method, and a laser perforator. Both devices are based on fiber lasers.

At the moment, the company has organized serial production of compact laser personalization systems with the functions of graphic and electronic personalization of identification cards, Shtrikh 2012 and Shtrikh 2012AM.
