SPS introduces Sub-Lam® to support large-volume production of payment cards

Smart Packaging Solutions (SPS) is bringing its contribution to the spread of dual interface payment cards with its newly developed Sub-Lam®, dedicated to large volume production.


ROUSSET, FRANCE, November 2, 2015 – Smart Packaging Solutions, a world leader in dual interface banking and eID documents, is expanding its offer with “Sub-Lam®,” a laminate built with an inlay and two PVC sheets dedicated to large volumes of dual interface payment cards.


Sub-Lam® consists in an inlay, with an etched antenna, laminated between two PVC sheets. This combination brings rigidity and stability guaranteeing an easy integration process for card manufacturers. Sub-Lam® has been developed by SPS as an evolution of the company’s S-Lam, already adopted by numerous card manufacturers worldwide. Thanks to its new manufacturing process, Sub-Lam® is ideally adapted to large production volumes.


As Sub-Lam is manufactured in roll, it is compatible with very large-volume manufacturing. Sub-Lam facilitates the handling with a full compliancy with automatic collating process, assuring all card manufacturers confronted to a fast ramp-up of their contactless or dual interface card production that they will easily adapt to new demands from card issuers.


Olivier Brunet, Product & Marketing director, SPS, declares “With the addition of Sub-Lam® to our range of products, we are bringing our support to large volume manufacturers involved in the major ongoing EMV migrations.”


Sub-Lam® is readily available from SPS. Sub-Lam® is part of the eBoost PAY® product line, which offers a unique and patented technology for secure and reliable payment and transport cards enabling a contact & contactless interface. The eBoost PAY® product line builds upon SPS numerous references for payment and transport applications and includes dual interface modules (Dual 6 and Dual 8) and inlays, S-Lam® and Sub-Lam®. Already, SPS customers have received more than 45 currently active certifications or type approvals from payment networks for their products associating various chips from all semiconductor vendors, with different operating systems.
