(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME D'ETABLISSEMENT DE PASSEPORTS
Abstract
(EN)
A passport production system that is designed to personalize passports with the personal information of the intended holder of the passport, as well as an associated method of passport production. The passport production system is modular in construction, thereby readily permitting the assembly and reconfiguration of an application specific passport production system from different processing modules. Moreover, the modules permit the system to be reconfigured at the job site so as to add or remove modules as dictated by the changing needs of the application. In one embodiment, the system includes a leafing module (14) and a personalization module (16) for performing a personalization operation, such as laser personalization or printing on the passport. Documents other than passports can also be personalized using the system and method of this invention.

L'invention concerne un système d'établissement de passeports conçu pour individualiser les passeports en les dotant des informations personnelles de leur détenteur prévu, ainsi qu'un procédé associé à l'établissement de passeports. Ledit système d'établissement de passeports est de conception modulaire, qui permet l'assemblage et la reconfiguration rapides d'un système d'établissement de passeports spécifique à une application, à partir de différents modules de traitement. En outre, les modules permettent de reconfigurer le système sur le lieu de travail, de façon à pouvoir en ôter ou en ajouter, en fonction des besoins de l'application en cours. Dans un mode de réalisation, le système comprend un module (14) destiné à feuilleter le document et un module de personnalisation (16) pour exécuter une opération de personnalisation du document, par exemple la personnalisation par laser ou l'impression du passeport. Les procédé et système de la présente invention peuvent également être appliqués pour la personnalisation d'autres documents que les passeports.
