S3800HD high resolution retransfer and embosser


High resolution retransfer printing and embossing for credit and debit card issuance

Instant Issuance

The new S3800HD instant issuance system has been designed around two core technologies. The new Matica embossing drum, based on our reliable heavy-duty embossing technology for central issuance, and the most reliable retransfer 600dpi printing engine in the market. Together, they create an compact, easy-to-use, system, which allows embossed debit and credit cards to be issued at branch level, starting from blank stock cards, helping banks to generate a seamless, frictionless customer experience and to potentially, save significant costs.

The XID printing module uses reverse transfer technology to produce high quality, over-the-edge printed cards, so there are no white areas left unprinted. It’s a feature that allows the S3800HD to instantly issue cards with such intense colors and image quality that they easily rival the best preprinted cards on the market. Its ultra-high 600 dpi resolution allows printing crisp, tiny characters, down to a character size of 1.3pt allowing real microtext. Electronic fine-line printing and other sophisticated graphic elements can be printed adding an extra level of visual security to the financial card.

The EMB embossing module personalizes the card using the embossing and indenting drum, which can configure up to 72 + 72 characters for credit and debit card issuance. It embosses the front and rear indent, applying color to the embossed characters on the integrated tipping station.
