Credit Card Magnetic Stripe Machine

CreditCard Stripe Machine

The familiar magnetic stripes on the backs of credit cards are applied by this machine.

Seven parallel strips are continuously bonded by heat to a PVC transfer film under closely controlled parameters, including temperature, pressure, and speed. The film is cut to length by a rotary guillotine, ready for laminating to the thick plastic sheets, 21 cards to a sheet.

My apologies for contributing to credit card proliferation.
