KINEGRAM design integration

New developments based on the KINEGRAM ZERO.ZERO technology enable a much improved and unparalleled integration of the security laminate and the document design. The ability to produce ultra-fine metallic structures in perfect registration to the diffractive security elements allows for the creation of intricately designed security laminates with high brilliance, continuous kinematic movements and an extremely high transparency that reveals even the finest details in the background print and the overall document design.

KINEGRAM design integration means:
  • Partially transparent header including “metal-free” text which exhibits background colour
  • Surface Relief (birds and frame for ghost image, combined with lens-effect)
  • Fine-line transformations (flock of birds, bird flying in from bottom left)
  • Nanotext (tree)
Benefits of KINEGRAM design integration:
  • KINEGRAM TKO ZERO.ZERO design augments the pre-printed and personalized card design
  • Easier to recognize, harder to copy
  • Protection against fraudulent use of lost or stolen blank cards
  • Special protection of personalized information
  • More flexibility in personalization (e.g. different colour for different card categories)
