The CAR-5AR is designed specifically to cut credit cards from plastic sheets, generally to cut any kind of plastic card. The machine’s sensor system traces registration marks printed on the uncut sheets – not according to the edge of the sheet. This registration mark tracking system is more precise. Where precision is not necessary – cutting unprinted sheets, for example – the CAR-5AR can use the older, edge of sheet method.
