DTC5500 LMX

ASAP now carries the new Fargo DTC5500LMX!

DTC5500LMX

ASAP Identification is proud to announce the latest and greatest direct-to-card printer from Fargo, the DTC5500LMX!

The DTC5500LMX provides premium printing and delivers the quickest, most cost-efficient wasteless lamination solution on the market today. The DTC5500LMX is the latest release in the successful line of FARGO® Direct-to-Card (DTC®) printer/encoders, and the first to utilize HID Global’s iON™ technology which powers the fastest and most energy efficient lamination hardware available.

HID Global’s DTC5500LMX all-in-one printing and lamination solution delivers on the promise of reliable, high-volume production at an ultra-low cost-per-card. This enables cost-conscious organizations to routinely issue secure, durable cards in high volumes without sacrificing quality. And as the most energy efficient printing and lamination system available today, the DTC5500LMX is the first printer on the market to be GreenCircle® Certified.

Additionally, the DTC5500LMX system also uses HID Global’s new wasteless PolyGuard™ LMX overlaminates, providing the highest level of card protection while reducing consumable costs by up to 50%. The new consumable design will drive savings in high-volume printing environments, making it the ideal solution for higher education, large corporations, healthcare facilities and government agencies.

DTC5500LMX Printer/Encoder/Laminator

  • Lower Cost Per Card. PolyGuard™ LMX wasteless laminates are manufactured with 1000 patches per roll – enabling lower cost per patch as well as minimizing consumable re-filling.
  • Ease of Encoding. Wide array of contact, contactless and magnetic encoders available for seamless in-line encoding of smart card credentials.
  • Save Time, Save Energy. HID Global’s iON™ technology brings the laminator to optimal operating temperature in under 45 seconds, as compared to the three-plus minutes required by competitive systems. This is up to an 80% saving in time as well as reducing energy consumption.
  • Rugged Enclosure. Robust housing ensures continuous production of quality ID badges and smartcards – even in the harshest printing conditions, such as arid or dusty environments – protecting your investment long into the future.
  • Dual-side Lamination Standard. Unlike other printer / laminators available on the market today, dual-side lamination with one material comes standard for users that may want a full clear patch on one or both sides, for example. A two-material option is also available for cards requiring unique laminates on each side – such as with a custom holographic patch on the front side of a card – with a half patch protecting the back side that leaves a magstripe unencumbered for use.
  • Built in Security. Optional locking hoppers and consumable doors provide maximum security for printing of highly-secure IDs.

Matica launches new retransfer printer for event sector’s oversized cards

Matica launches new retransfer printer for event sector’s oversized cards

  • Matica’s new XL8300 prints oversized event cards in superior retransfer quality.
  • Newly developed XL8300 is an exclusive Matica offering.
  • Widest printable area with oversized card format.

MUNICH,  7 April, 2016 – Matica Technologies AG (A0JELZ), a worldwide leading vendor for financial and secure ID card issuance systems announces the launch of the XL8300, an innovative retransfer printer, which specializes in exceptionally high quality card applications for oversized cards for the events industry.

Based on the successful XID retransfer Series 8, the XL8300 will complement Matica’s comprehensive portfolio by offering the ever-growing events sector a portable solution that issues non-standard, wide format cards with high calibre printing.

Wide format cards and badges are deployed for visitors, staff or VIPs by event management and conferencing companies organizing conventions, trade shows and sports events, such as the Olympics, Formula One, golf, football, tennis and all other competitions. ´

“The oversized card format market is a growing sector so it was a logical step to make our entrance by maximizing Matica´s well-known and trusted technology. The market reaction to our improved products, which sit within a broad and competitive portfolio, shows that we are on track to achieve sustainable profitability,” said Sandro Camilleri, CEO, Matica Technologies AG.

Demand for wide format ID cards may also include sites of specialized security where increased card personalization is required. Matica´s XL8300 has an option to encode contactless cards. Similarly, corporate environments may need them where access control requires immediate personal identification. As an additional security feature, the XL8300 can print logo, text and images with UV ink.

 

What makes the XL8300 stand out from the crowd in the events industry?

Superior print quality for wide format visitor cards

High resolution retransfer print technology, with biggest individually printable areas.

Improved flexibility and options

The XL8300 is not restricted to one material and prints on a wide range of card material such as ABS, PET and PVC. Increased card personalization is possible owing to its option to encode contactless cards for electronic access control, and UV printing to increase the level of security. The personalization can be done in full color and monochrome carbon black.

Recognizable reliability

The successful XID retransfer Series 8 constitutes the core function behind Matica’s new XL8300 reassuring users about its high printing competences for which it is known.

“We have a comprehensive portfolio of card issuance solutions but we recognized that there was a gap in the events market, so our engineers and designers have worked hard to add a new member to our XID Series 8 family, which creates an advanced alternative for anyone working with wide format cards,” said Harald Zinn, Director, Product Marketing for Secure ID, Matica Technologies AG.

Availability

XL8300 is available now through Matica´s partner network.
