Plastic Card Equipment and National ID Card Manufacturers -
Euclid Ltd Browse our site today!

plastic card equipmentFounded in 1988 in Hampshire, Euclid is a UK based company which designs, manufactures & supplies a diverse range of products based around one common item - the PLASTIC CARD.

The company has a portfolio of standard plastic card equipment covering low volume desktop to high capacity production requirements and covers a range of technologies from magnetic stripe, Mifare, smartcards, inkjet and thermal printing operating on a range of plastic cards.

The plastic cards market is one which changes regularly: very often a standard product will not provide the required solution for certain applications and this is where Euclid scores best. Drawing upon our in depth experience of plastic cards and the uses to which they are put, we are able to customise existing plastic card equipment, or design bespoke solutions, at very competitive rates - and in relatively short time scales. This can include any plastic card type – from ID cards through magnetic stripe, Mifare, smartcard etc. The company also has much experience in producing non ISO encoding routines for magnetic stripe cards and tickets.

For a medium sized company, Euclid has impressive experience in government national ID cards projects - and we can boast over 50 installations worldwide (including UK Home Office) covering ID cards, passports, visa or driving license programmes – either as prime contractor or listed subcontractor. This area of operation covers both hardware and software from automated document scanning through to ID cards print and finishing, as well as magnetic stripe encoding of driving licenses, encoding of smartcards and ePassports etc.

Although all Euclid plastic card equipment are wholly designed and manufactured in Hampshire, UK, we are not limited to the home UK market – over 80% of our sales are installed overseas.
With a client base that includes many ‘blue chip’ names, and with installations in several locations around the world, Euclid is well placed to feature as a leading force in the expanding market for all those who use plastic cards.
