ISRA VISION AG: Additional orders underscore ISRA's internationally leading technology in the Specialty Paper niche market

As part of the OEM order, ISRA equips the manufacturer's production machinery with its innovative BANKSTAR product for automatic surface inspection of banknote paper. For the paper machine manufacturer, the order contains the option of obtaining additional ISRA systems in the amount of close to three million Euros within the next few months. The manufacturer relies on the leading technology and innovative systems of ISRA in equipping the machinery with surface inspection systems. For many years, ISRA has been a well-recognized partner of various banknote paper manufacturers worldwide and has been certified for the inspection of security features in various countries. As such, ISRA is also an exceptional partner for the banknote paper machine manufacturers in the OEM business.

With this second large order in a short period of time and the contractual option to an additional order volume of close to three million Euros, ISRA underscores its technological leadership in the inspection of banknote paper. This allows the company to reinforce its strong position in the international market in the demanding area of Specialty Paper. ISRA is striving for portfolio expansion in the future with additional technologically complex applications in the area of banknote production.
