The core spirit of a card printer is its print quality, print speed and stability. IDP’s new SMART‐51 card printer increases print speeds by 10%, enhances print quality by optimizing precise ribbon movement, and provides faster processing speed by utilizing a new powerful CPU. From the initial design of the SMART‐51 Series, IDP has taken careful consideration of the end‐user to create an easy to use and flexible card printer. The SMART‐51 offers new features including a larger card loading capacity (up to 200 cards), a choice of output direction, new cartridge loading lamination, support of transparent magnetic cards, optional support of CR79 card and an optional all‐in‐one type lock system ideal for instant issuance of bank cards.
Evolis introduces a new touch screen color option for its range of desktop card printers: Primac, Zenius and Elypso. The touch screen enables users to interact in real time with the printer without being in front of a computer. Set in 16 languages, the touch screen of 2.4 inches is ideal for desk applications and any other use for which the card printer is far from the computer. This new option is a real time saver for users as they can print directly from the options on the screen, or even trigger a cleaning.
