  GSM-SIM and Hole & Slit Puncher (Half Automatic)


With this half automatic Slit Puncher punched cards (ISO 7810/7813, thickness 0.5–1 mm) can be further processed by punching holes or other forms (e.g. for GSM-SIM cards) into them and by perforating separation lines. The cards with holes are often used as marketing articles (e.g. key tags). With GSM-SIM card punching, the SIM module contour is punched. Examples are shown in the following picture.


The cards are manually placed into a magazine. Under the magazine is the feeding unit to transport the cards on a conveyor belt. The impulse of the feeding unit is pneumatically issued over excenter.

In the first stage, the cards are pulled downwards out of the magazine, one by one, with suckers. The rest of the card transport happens through a pneumatic feeder moving the cards to the punching unit. The feeder is exactly timed to the punch move by a sensor. So the cards are pricisely placed into punching position.

There are always two cards side by side under the punch tool, so two functions can be performed simultaneously by one stroke. For example with GSM-SIM cards, the separation lines are perforated into one card whilst the SIM contour slits are punched into the other. The punch tool is operated by a hydraulically driven excenter shaft. The finished card is pushed out of the punching unit through the following card and transported by a conveyor belt to the depot.

An important advantage of our punching unit is that tools may be quickly exchanged if required (short downtime!).
