High-volume photo quality printing
FIPS 201 certified for the personalisation of US Government credentials, the Magicard Prima 4 provides a reliable, robust solution for instant issuance in a compact package. Using a retransfer printing process, images are first printed onto a thin film then heat transferred onto the card surface. This produces a high resolution glossy image, printed right over the edge of the card.
Customisable stealth security
A special dye sublimation Ultra Violet (UV) ribbon can be used with the Prima 4 for the printing of invisible photographs, logos, text or symbols when issuing high security cards. The UV ink is not detectable to the naked eye, but is only visible with the use of a UV light source. This special YMCK-UV ribbon offers an affordable yet still highly secure feature to decrease susceptibility to counterfeiting.
Trusted electronic security
The Magicard Prima 4 can be equipped with a range of card encoding devices to write secure electronic data to cards at the point of issuance. Smart card encoding options include contact chip, MIFARE®, DESFire® and iClass®. Specialist high-security encoders, such as EMV accredited devices, can also be fitted for the in-line personalisation of payment cards. The Prima 4 can also be supplied with a magnetic stripe encoder built-in.
