Algeria taps IAI for BookMaster One


IAI industrial systems has received a new passport technology order from the Algerian Ministry of the Interior.

The deal, for two IAI BookMaster One latest generation machines and one laminator module, will enable the Ministry to renew the non-biometric Algerian passports before 25 November 2015.

The systems will be supplied during 2014. In the past, IAI says it has delivered two BookMaster One systems and one machine for the application of ImagePerf and NumberPerf for the production of Algerian biometric passports.

BookMaster One systems perform the entire personalisation of the passport in one pass through the machine including verification of all operations performed. Thus, the systems turn blank books, inserted in the machine, into fully personalised passports ready for issuing. According to IAI, the BookMaster One has a modular setup, which enables customers to procure and employ the total functionality of the systems or parts of it, all at once or in phases.

IAI’s systems are in use in countries such as Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Ireland, UK, Sweden, China, Russia, Ukraine, Canada, Portugal, Estonia, Costa Rica, Poland, Morocco, South Africa, Bulgaria, Algeria, India, Uzbekistan and Thailand.
