WAALWIJK, The Netherlands, July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Industrial Automation Integrators (IAI) B.V. in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, a subsidiary of DOCDATA N.V. in Waalwijk, the Netherlands, will supply two BookMaster One systems to AB Svenska Pass in Tumba, Sweden. The BookMaster One systems will be used for the personalisation of the Swedish passport.

BookMaster One systems perform the entire personalisation of a passport in one pass through the machine, including a quality verification of all processing done. Thus, the system is able to turn blank passports offered to the machine, into fully personalized passports ready for issuing. Due to its high degree of integration, each BookMaster One system can replace several existing personalisation systems.

BookMaster One systems are already employed in the personalisation of Swiss and Ukrainian passports and, later this year, the Algerian passport will follow. Other IAI systems are employed in the processing of passports for countries such as: Belgium, The Netherlands, Portugal, United Kingdom, Costa Rica, Ireland, Sweden, Estonia, and Canada.

The fact that Svenska Pass (once again) decides in favour of IAI systems confirms and strengthens IAI's position as a prominent supplier to the Security Printers market which produces products such as passports, banknotes, identity cards, drivers' licenses and other securities.
