Key benefits of both printers are outlined below:
Evolis launches its most complete range of printers for instant self service printing of customized cards
Angers (France), November 12th, 2015 – Evolis, the worldwide leader in personalization and printing solutions for plastic cards, is extending its range of printers designed especially for self-service card printing, with the launch of 4 new models.
These customization systems are ideal for integration into a terminal, either kiosk or as automated devices. With new features, they are particularly compact and robust, while offering greater flexibility and autonomy for instant card printing. Evolis can now offer the widest range of self-service card printing options on the market.
Instant card printing from free-standing terminals allows companies, banks, shops and even universities to improve the quality of service offered to their customers or students with immediate card printing and reduced waiting times. These printers are particularly suitable for issuing payment cards, membership cards, student cards, loyalty cards, ID badges or even gift cards.
The new Evolis range aims to meet all requirements for the self-service personalization of single plastic cards with solutions customized to meet client specifications. Evolis card printing modules have a range of encoding options (magnetic stripe, smartcard and contactless smartcard), which can be combined; from a simple print to complex graphic customization of secure cards.
The range includes 4 printers (KC200, KC200B, KM500B, and KM2000B) divided into 2 different print modules. The choice of module is determined by the way it will be used. The criteria to be taken into account are:
All 4 models are designed to adapt to all kinds of kiosks. They offer many advantages, such as double-sided and edge-to-edge printing, a wide range of encoding options, the capacity to reject faulty cards, and to recycle cards not collected by their users.
All of these modules include Evolis Premium Suite® to facilitate the management of printer parameters, as well as the new Evolis Premium SDK (Software Development Kit) to optimize the integration of the printer into IT systems.
The KC200 and KC200B were designed for easy integration into free-standing terminals. Each one has a 200-card feeder. Manual insertion is also available for the KC200B module, which is fitted with a bezel. The KM500B and KM2000B printers are distinguished by their high feeder capacity, with 500 and 2,000 cards respectively. Their use, therefore, means limited maintenance of the terminal and avoids frequent reloading of cards and ribbons.

RFID Applications in Healthcare Save End Users Time and Money on Asset Locationing & More
With the ever-changing state of the healthcare and medical industry, providers need to focus their time and resources on providing patients with the care and attention they expect while simultaneously managing costs.
This often proves challenging, as anywhere from 10 to 20% of mobile hospital assets are lost or stolen, at an average cost of nearly $3,000 per item. Forty percent of hospital pharmacy dollars go towards rush orders that could easily be prevented with improved asset tracking. A full three-quarters of maintenance time is often spent searching for these items, as is up to a third of nurses’ time—taking their focus away from providing quality care. The biggest challenge for many hospitals and offices is helping an already overextended staff spend less time on non-care activities.
There’s a better way for healthcare organizations to maximize efficiency and reduce waste; an RFID solution will help them know what they have, where they have it, and where it all needs to go to keep care running smoothly. RFID allows users to track and manage their mobile assets and patients with a custom blend of handheld, mobile or fixed readers. No line of sight is needed for RFID data capture, allowing the user to capture multiple tag in a single pass without moving equipment. RFID is also ideal for drug or supply closets that need consistent monitoring, reading hundreds of tags per second for quick and easy inventory.
In addition, patient rooms, labs, procedure areas, stock rooms and more can be scanned and analyzed in just a few seconds. There are a myriad of ways for your healthcare customers to implement and utilize the benefits of RFID:
Asset Tracking – Detect and timestamp the movements of critical assets to locate them quickly when needed. Reduce equipment loss and theft to improve care and productivity. Use collected data to manage equipment flow processes and resource planning.
Inventory Control – Provide automated, continuous inventory monitoring as well as an alert when minimum levels are reached or when stock is expiring. Ensure availability of products and treatments, preventing rush orders.
Healthcare IT Asset Management – Locate and potect platforms that could have private financial or clinical data. Demonstrate HIPAA data security compliance.
Patient Tracking – Prevent medical errors due to misidentification, and alert nearby personnel and first responders should an event occur. Provide secure, temporary ID access for relatives and visitors.
Document/Data File Tracking – Safeguard patient records from loss or unauthorized access, or provide limited but secure access as needed with compliance tracking. Ensure clinical access without compromising confidentiality.
To help customers improve efficiency, security and overall patient care, Motorola offters a complete line of RFID solutions to simplify deployment, lower costs and maximize ROI. The MC3190-Z RFID Reader features a lightweight, ergonomic design to for all-day comfort and user-friendly color touchscreen. Its pinpoint locationing technology combined with Motorola’s MAX RFID Antenna reduces the need for tag/scanner alignment, and it’s rugged enough to withstand the rigors of daily use in healthcare and medical environments. What’s more, Motorola’s MAX Data Capture technology combines both RFID and bar code scanning into a single device.
For applications requiring additional throughput, Zebra now offers the latest addition to its Card printer series: the ZXP Series 7 Pro.
The ZXP Series 7 Pro is simple to use, produces more cards in less time and is less expensive to own than any other printer in its category.
Larger capacity input and output hoppers – With high-capacity input and output hoppers holding up to 250 plastic cards, users can produce larger batches without the need for constant staff oversight.
First in, first out (FIFO) card sequence – As cards are produced, they are ordered in a first-in, first-out sequence in the new stacking output hopper. This coordination eliminates the need for sorting cards once the print job is completed.
Easy loading of synchronized supplies – Users can quickly and easily reload supplies and collect finished cards via the removable input and output hoppers. And, the high-capacity hoppers are perfectly synchronized with Zebra’s high-capacity ribbons. With 750 images per ribbon roll, users can print three full batches of cards before needing to change ribbon. This results in additional savings in operator time and fewer production interruptions.
Reliable performance and photo-quality printing – Like the ZXP Series 7, this new Pro version delivers the same fast yet reliable performance and prints sharp, vivid cards with photo-quality images. With the included magnetic encoder, service bureaus are ensured reliable printing and encoding operations. Available with optional features like single- or dual-sided laminating, smart card encoding, connectivity options, and locking mechanisms for security, the ZXP Series 7 Pro is flexible to meet business needs now and in the future.
Zebra has made it easy to clear a jam from their ZXP Series 7 printers. Watch the short video below for a quick guide on the process.
