Still waiting for your new plates to arrive? Well, it looks like that they will be arriving soon after the Land Transporation Office (LTO) recently got their hands on a new plate making machine.
Called 'IDeROBOT', the LTO claims that it is capable of producing 700 plates an hour. In addition, the LTO also mentioned that it can make up to 5,600 plates in an 8-hour shift.
This, as claimed by the LTO, will make for faster releasing of backlogged license plates for their vehicle owners. Moreover, it also allows for a safer and more systematic way of producing license plates.
The new machine is currently being used at the LTO's Quezon City office which was inaugurated back in April 2018. In review, the facility comes with manufacturing equipment from Germany and materials for plates that meet international standards. It also comes with five manual plate making machines, seven units of manual embossing machines that are capable of producing 22,000 plates per day.
There's even an automated embossing machine that has since been operational last August 2018. It is rated to make 12,000 plates per day.
