For small businesses with one-sided direct cards, ID printers are the best option for printing visual ID cards. In larger companies, employee ID cards are often integrated into access control systems and require a kind of encryption function. Larger companies require higher print quality, which makes converting to an ID printer a good option.
Single-sided and double-sided ID printers are ideal for K-12 schools because they provide an effective and affordable way to secure campus and quickly identify students, staff, and visitors. Single-sided card printers can be upgraded to double-sided printing functions as required.
Some card printers have the ability to print both sides simultaneously, which reduces the time it takes to print with lower fault tolerance. With such printers, one side of the badge is printed on its flip-flip station and the other side is printed horizontally. Double-sided printers are recommended if you print more than basic information on the card, such as employee numbers, barcodes, membership numbers, and additional cardholder personal information such as date of birth, security and access level, expiration date, and information on how to return a lost card.
The basic function of a card printer is to read and encode a magnetic strip contact or a contactless RFID chip from a card or chip card. The ID card printers can output magnetic strip encoders, proximity coders, and smart card contact options for acting as a set of serial number identification cards and add serial numbers to the record in the ID log. Traditional applications include time recording and access control, in particular the personalization of photos, but there are countless other applications that can be found on plastic cards.
Depending on the option selected, they can produce cards with medium to high security. Industrial card printers can be used as stand-alone stations, combined into larger systems, or used as auxiliary devices with high performance. ID issuers prefer to print Datacard IDs from printers for a variety of reasons: price, performance, flexibility, quality, and reliability, to name just a few.
Card printers are designed for lamination, strip, and punching functions with desktop or web-based software. They can be controlled by the corresponding printer driver using a specific programming language.
The size and volume of an I / O card printer should not matter in the factory but is important for applications such as small offices, retail stores, and cruise ships. The need for an ID printer is determined by the application premise of on-demand printing, mass duplication, or printing of the same card design which must be printed as one-off several times. Apart from the work the card printer does during printing, you should also make sure you buy a quiet ID printer.
Knowing how your card is used and what information it contains will help you understand what functions are important to you. The growing security needs of today’s digitally-driven society are one area where workgroups and businesses are starting to protect themselves with secure identification systems and one area where B & H can help is providing the appropriate ID printer for their system. Using a card printer and appropriate software can streamline the process of getting new employees and members to your system and maintain your system.
Once you have chosen the printer type that you want, the next step is to choose between single-sided and double-sided printing. One of the fundamental differences between i-card printers is their ability to print one-sided or both sides of the card in a single print operation. A single-sided printer prints one side of the card, while a double-sided model prints both sides in one operation.
Double-sided printing is useful for creating cards with photo ID on one side, barcodes, and other information such as rules, schedules, and contact information on the back. One side is more expensive and requires you to flip the back of the card and reprint it.
It can print monochrome and full-color cards and is available with a variety of encoding options. Unlike HID and Fargo products, however, it is only able to print CR79-format cards, and it is equipped with an extensive encryption module that includes magnetic stripes, Mifare, and proximity. Using dye sublimation and thermal transfer, an I-Card printing method that uses heat to transfer digitized images from the I-Card printer tape to a flat surface (usually a blank plastic I / O card).
Maticas S5200G relies on thermal transfer technology in monochrome mode to produce an impressive 2400 single-sided 10mm and 850 double-sided 10mm cards per hour. You save working time, increase productivity and experience the fastest print speed in its class. The Direct Card Dye sublimation method makes it possible to produce vivid full-color images at speeds of up to 145 km / h.
A result is a user-friendly machine that can produce high-quality cards. This is the printer you can choose to print complicated and intricate card designs with the ability to print at 600×1200 dpi (points per inch). You also benefit from full card coverage as opposed to direct-to-card machines, which leave a small white border at the edges of the card.
