The CAR-5H is designed specifically to cut credit card size plastic cards from plastic sheets, generally to punch any kind of plastic card. The machine’s registration tracking sensor system traces registration marks printed on the uncut sheets before feeding into the punch tool, thus insuring more accuracy and precision. Though, the machine is equipped with both, optical recognition, as well as edge tracking units, but the registration mark tracking system is more precise. If there are no needs for precision, e.g. punching unprinted sheets, the CAR-5H can use the older, edge of sheet tracking method.
