Government ID Project Uses Laser Engraving Technology

Datacard Group : 07 September, 2011  (Application Story)
Datacard joins with Datasonic in providing upgrade to Malaysian government ID card program using smart card technology with laser engraving
The National Registration Department of Malaysia (JPN) has selected Datacard Group and Datasonic Corporation for a contract to upgrade the Malaysian government’s ‘MyKad’ and ‘MyKid’ card programs that include multi-purpose smart ID cards.

Datacard Group will assist Datasonic Corporation, who is the primary contract holder for this project, to supply Datacard MX6000 Card Issuance Systems with laser engraving modules, as well as Datacard CP80 Plus Card Printers that will be strategically placed at branches nationwide. By utilizing the Datacard solutions, JPN will be able to securely issue Malaysian citizens the multi-purpose MyKad and MyKid cards that include the national ID, driving licences, ATM card, healthcare data, etc.

To help meet the requirements for the Government of Malaysia, Datacard configured the MX6000 card issuance system to include a unique laser engraving module that personalizes all the cardholder information, variable-sized photos, alphanumeric text, bar codes, black-and-white logos and other graphical elements for increased card security.

“The Datacard MX6000 card issuance system with the high quality laser module meets the stringent requirements set by the Malaysian government for high volume secure printing, and the Datacard CP80 Plus card printer is an ideal solution for the instant issuance of the MyKid card, which is targeted for IDs of new born babies and children under 12 years old,” said Jen (B) Tan Sri Mohamed Hashim Bin Mohd Ali, chairman of Dibena Group of companies. “This will help improve the card issuance and delivery system and ensure added security for our card programs.”  

“We have a long-standing partnership with Datasonic Corporation Sdn Bhd, as well as the Malaysian Government, and we are very pleased that they have asked Datacard to once again partner with them on this project,” said Angus McDougall, regional vice president, Asia Pacific for Datacard Group. “Having been in the business for close to 41 years, Datacard Group continues to demonstrate our world leadership in this industry and we will work closely with Datasonic to ensure the successful implementation of the upgrade of the project.”
