Desktop CardCheck Card Inspection System by Pineberry Manufacturing Inc

Pineberry Manufacturing Inc.’s CardCheck offers 100% quality guarantees and ensures unfailing card integrity on both the front and back of cards in one pass.

Toronto, ON, March 29, 2016 – Pineberry Manufacturing Inc. will be exhibiting ICMA EXPO with the CardCheck Card Inspection System.  With true card edge-to-edge inspection, this two sided plastic card inspection system provides automated 100% inspection of every card.  As cards run through this high speed system, digital technology and cameras verify colors, images, pictures, text, codes, numbers, dates, print errors, magnetic stripes, signature panels, scratches, placement accuracy and card dimensions.  Upon verification, successful cards are shingled for easy packaging.  Unsuccessful cards are rejected without interrupting the machine.

“Our CardCheck Card Inspection System is designed for simplicity, accuracy, and fits on most desktops,” states David McCharles, President of Pineberry Manufacturing Inc.  “Our two camera system not only detects print and surface defects of plastic cards on the fly, but also eliminates bottlenecks that are created by human inspectors, excess costs of false rejects and unnecessary labor time,” continues Mr. McCharles.  “The CardCheck is ideal for the card industry, and runs plastic, credit and financial cards, employee and student ID cards, social insurance cards, phone cards, driver’s licenses, and more,” concludes Mr. McCharles.

Pineberry Manufacturing Inc.’s CardCheck Card Inspection System fits perfectly on various tables and desktops, easily integrates into other personalization systems, and has the smallest footprint on the market.  The system inspects colored, white, black, clear, blank and printed cards, with speeds up to 36,000 per hour.  Like all Pineberry products, the Card Inspection System can be customized to fit the manufacture’s needs.


The International Card Manufacturers Association (ICMA) serves the dynamic card industry and the various companies and organizations involved in manufacturing and personalizing these cards.  In addition to training programs, educational events and publishing the magazine Card Manufacturing, the association leads a variety of programs for the card industry.  The ICMA EXPO is scheduled for April 4-7, 2016, at Loews Royal Pacific Resort in Orlando, Florida.  2016 will mark the first time that ICMA and the Smart Card Alliance (SCA) are co-locating events, giving attendees a broader perspective and expanded opportunities.  The content and exhibits of the event will cover technology ranging from the core manufacturing and personalization of a card, to the rapid evolution in secure payments, involving EMV chip cards, mobile wallets, and transportation payments.
