Application Fields


An innovative machine and plant construction company

ruhlamat is an innovative engineering and machine building company with its headquarters located in Germany. Business activities focus on the manufacturing of machinery for the personalization of ID cards and electronic passports, inlay/RFID fabrication and chip module production.

In addition to this, ruhlamat designs and manufactures (3D) wire embedding machines and customer-specific assembly systems.

ruhlamat branches and representations throughout the world create an ideal basis for a professional and global service network.

Tailor-made solutions

In the field of Inlay/RFID production, ruhlamat provides its customers with tailor-made solutions for product development, medium or high volume production of RFID inlays for ePassports and contactless or Dual Interface cards.

All concepts allow for a combination of automatic punching of modules, module placement, wire embedding and electrical connection of module and antenna.

ruhlamat offers personalization systems for ID cards and e-passports, inlay/RFID production systems, and machine solutions for various wire embedding applications.

Produce high-quality RFID inlays quickly and economically

We have comprehensive experience in ultrasonic wire embedding for different industries and applications since 1997. The wire embedding technology for antenna production is superior to all other production technologies in terms of quality, durability, and economy.

Antenna embedding is possible on various materials and offers constant electrical properties and mechanical strength at the highest level.

Wire embedded antennas produced by ruhlamat machines are extremely cheap and yet provide the best product characteristics compared to etched or plated antennas. Our excellent sonotrode know-how for various substrate / wire combinations ensures highest precision at wire embedding.

Optimized sonotrode geometries and materials guarantee best performing products with proven reliability even in the most demanding applications.

Innovation: Antenna Production by 3D Wire Laying

3D Ultrasonic Wire Laying for Ice-Free Car Bodies The concept of "autonomous driving" is dependent on a large number of sensors. This also includes ultrasonic sensors installed at different positions in the vehicle. It is essential that the car body parts behind which the sensors are placed are ice-free even in winter. So far, solutions for sub-zero temperatures that originate from the production of window heaters have been tested. Wire structures are applied to a film and then joined to a body component by overmoulding or bonding. The machine developer Ruhlamat, in cooperation with a robot manufacturer, has developed an innovative solution that makes this additional work step unnecessary and is more flexible in the design of wire structures on 3D contours.
