Identity theft and fraud are hugely important issues for many businesses in society today.
That’s why businesses and large organisations need people to prove who they are at any given time and have confidence in their security systems. To achieve this, businesses also need card printers that meet security demands.
That is why the team at Ultra ID has put security at the very heart of the latest instalment in their Magicard line of mobile card printing solutions.
The Helix re-transfer ID card printer is the world’s first re-transfer printer with built-in visual security.
By using Magicard’s now famous HoloKote security feature, the Helix mobile printing device can print a secure watermark on each card during the re-transfer process. This feature also uses the wavelengths and lens effect of the re-transfer film to make fluorescent watermarks under UV lighting conditions.
The card’s design is first printed on the clear film, which is then laminated onto the card. This extra step offers better visual print quality and allows for truly cutting edge printing.
The Helix brand is all about putting identity security at the forefront of ID cards.
This latest card printer introduces the kinds of innovations people have come to expect from the UK-based manufacturer of high-quality portable ID printers.
Its intuitive touch-screen interface – with print preview and supplies indicators – is easy to use, making this a robust, high-volume printing machine boasting an impressive array of new features.
“Just like the DNA double helix, which is a fundamental component of what makes people what they are, Helix is a printer whose primary function is to help define and confirm identity,” says Andy Matko, CEO of Ultra ID.
The Helix re-transfer ID card printer also includes field-upgradable to double-sided printing that always produces a superior print quality. The device has capacity for 1,000 card yield ribbons and 200 card input and output hoppers, with easy to load cassettes effectively eliminate contamination.
