The Magicard Helix uses a retransfer printing process, where onto the card surface. This produces a high resolution photo quality image, printed over the edge of the card.
An intuitive touch screen, with print preview and supplies indicators, provides an easy-to-use interface to an advanced and durable print engine, powered by a high grade processing unit and boasting an impressive array of features.
Helix is the World's first retransfer printer with built-in visual security, with the ability to apply a secure watermark to each card during the retransfer process. This feature also exploits the wavelengths of the film to fluoresce under UV lighting conditions.
High capacity consumables (1000 prints) and hoppers, combined with a range of encoding options to write secure electronic data to the card, make the Helix ideal for high volume localised or centralised issuance of secure smart cards.
300dpi retransfer, 256 colour depth level (8Bit) with automatic card feed system.
HoloKote built-in security watermark is printed across the entire card surface, this feature also exploits the wavelengths of the film to fluoresce under UV lighting conditions. Available with 10 watermarks as standard, any of these watermarks can be replaced with your own customised design or company logo through an easy-to-use, but securely encrypted, online delivery method. HoloKote printing requires the use of secure dye film (YMCKS).
