Evolis will launch a new range of office card printers – Primacy- that features cutting-edge encoding technology during GITEX 2012, which is being held from 14 to 18 October this year. The company claims that the card reader is an ideal solution for issuing cards on a decentralised basis.
Primacy is designed to meet the card printing and encoding needs for medium and large runs. It can be used for personalising public transport cards, payment cards, ID badges, subscriber cards, as well as multi-feature cards.
Primacy is flexible and can be changed according to the needs of the user. The same machine can print either on one or both sides, and the dual-sided option can be activated easily by the user, on-site. This process applies to all encoding options, which the user may install quickly whatever the required configuration (magnetic strip, standard contact chip, or contactless RFID chip).
The features of the printer include high printing quality and speed. Evolis claims that it can print up to 210 single-sided and 140 dual-sided colour cards per hour. According to the company, “Primacy features “Evolis Premium Suite” software, which makes configuring the printer and its consumables extremely easy, thus saving considerable time.”
The statement further stated, “Primacy is currently positioned as the cheapest printer in its category, when one includes the cost of the printer together with the running costs (consumable costs plus energy use). Primacy is the quickest printer for colour customization and enables to be used easily and in more than 10 languages, thanks to Evolis Premium.”
The organizations that use Evolis products include Cartier, French ministry, Total, Aéroports de Paris (ADP), Manchester City Football Club, Arsenal Football Club and Yves Rocher.
