Magicard Prima 4 Laminator ID Card Printer UAE, Oman, QatarAsset, Inventory & Warehouse Management Software



Retransfer printing with in-line lamination
FIPS-201 certified for the personalisation of US Government credentials, the Prima 4 provides a reliable, robust solution for instant issuance and lamination in a compact package. Optional UV printing, holographic lamination and multiple encoding options add an additional layer of security and durability



In-line lamination for extra durability and security

The Magicard Prima 4 is available with in-line lamination. This adds an additional overlay to protect the card from wear and fading of the image, mainly for cards which are used frequently or in outdoor environments. Laminates can be overlays or patch. Patch provides a thick protection layer on the card but is not quite edge-to-edge. Overlay provides a thinner protection layer, but is fully edge-to-edge.

Both types of laminates can also be supplied with a customisable holographic design. This is particularly suited to very high volume secure card printing. For lower volume secure printing use Custom HoloKote® on the Helix or the Rio Pro.

High-volume photo quality printing

FIPS 201 certified for the personalization of US Government credentials, the Magicard Prima 4 provides a reliable, robust solution for instant issuance in a compact package. Using a retransfer printing process, images are first printed onto a thin film then heat transferred onto the card surface. This produces a high resolution glossy image, printed right over the edge of the card.

Customisable stealth security

A special dye sublimation Ultra Violet (UV) ribbon can be used with the Prima 4 for the printing of invisible photographs, logos, text or symbols when issuing high security cards. The UV ink is not detectable to the naked eye, but is only visible with the use of a UV light source. This special YMCK-UV ribbon offers an affordable yet still highly secure feature to decrease susceptibility to counterfeiting.

Trusted electronic security

The Magicard Prima 4 can be equipped with a range of card encoding devices to write secure electronic data to cards at the point of issuance. Smart card encoding options include contact chip, MIFARE, DESFire and iClass. Specialist high-security encoders, such as EMV accredited devices, can also be fitted for the inline personalisation of payment cards. The Prima 4 can also be supplied with a magnetic stripe encoder built-in.
