  • Attract new business with complex jobs and unique capabilities.
  • Apply dimensional items for specialty applications.


Extensive capabilities
The Attacher GV500 system is equipped to handle many complex formats, so you can attract high-margin specialty jobs and increase customer retention. It handles flat or folded sheets, cards, envelopes, brochures, booklets, leaflets and mailers up to 20″ wide. The GV500 system also applies plastic cards, CDs, coins, sachets and other items, including dimensional objects.

Flexible design
The Attacher GV500 system’s modular design makes it easy to move and install feeders and other top-mount components. Vacuum transport modules can be added at any time, so you can acquire new capabilities and protect your investment. Options include folding, scoring, attaching, match verification, inkjet personalization, magnetic stripe encoding, bar code grading, labeling, windowing and page opening.

High-speed operation
The Attacher GV500 system processes up to 28,000 carriers or documents per hour, depending on the format. The system also can be equipped for dual-stream production to drive throughput even higher. Plus, an innovative system design helps ensure accurate registration at high speeds.

Inline personalization
For card-based applications, the Attacher GV500 system offers magnetic stripe encoding and high-speed imaging with continuous inkjet and/or UV-curable Drop-on-Demand (UV DoD) inkjet technology.


Flexible feeding
Feed paper and plastic documents, letterhead, envelopes, ID1 cards, breakaway cards, key tags, 2-up cards, mini cards, coupons, magnets, single-use packets and other dimensional items quickly and efficiently.

Inline personalization
Ensure clear, crisp personalization of cards and carriers with modules for UV DoD continuous inkjet, water-based or MEK printing. These methods adhere to a wide range of substrates, providing near-thermal print quality at high speeds.

System controller software
The single system controller and intuitive operator interface help maximize efficiency and data integrity.

Magnetic stripe encoding
The Attacher GV500 system performs hi-co and lo-co magnetic stripe encoding, as well as compressed encoding, reverse encoding and dual magnetic stripe encoding.

Bar code grading
Capabilities include fixed-position scanning and high-speed, inline ISO/ANSI-method verification of linear barcodes.

Camera verification
To ensure data integrity, the Attacher GV500 system controller and cameras work together to track and read the data record as each card is processed.

Batch label printing
Batch thermal label printing is ideal for inline packaging of processed batches.

Page opening
Open pre-folded documents prior to affixing or printing.

Choose from V-, C-, Z- or plow folding. Folding components can be interchanged with feeders or opening components. Back folding or cross folding is also available.

Affix cards, CDs, coupons and other dimensional items using two-sided tape, labels, hot glue or cold (water-based) glue.

Place labels with extreme accuracy. Choose from scratch-off, activation, terms and conditions, and double-sided labels.

Divert and delivery systems
Detect and divert mismatched cards and carriers to separate remake or reject bins without interrupting production. High-speed batch and shingle delivery of cards and carriers ensures easy removal from the system.
