High volume photo quality
The Magicard Prima 8 provides a reliable, robust solution for instant issuance and lamination 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.
A special dye sublimation Ultra Violet (UV) ribbon can be used with the Prima 8 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.
The Magicard Prima 8 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 8 can also be supplied with a magnetic stripe encoder built-in.
