Ultra High-Resolution Secure Card Printing

Best In Class Retransfer Card Printer

Matica’s XID8600 is a premium quality printer, perfectly suited for the most demanding ID card programs requiring high definition and high-security printing. Its 600dpi printhead delivers outstanding image quality combined with security printing, including micro text and covert UV printing to increase the number of Visual Security Elements (VSEs) on the card.

Built on the established XID series print engine, the XID8600 is durable and reliable. This, in combination with its high-security print options, large capacity ribbons (1000 images), and its ability to print on durable card materials such as PC and ABS, makes it ideal for high-volume secure government ID schemes, including driver’s licenses and national ID cards.

Tailored, secure retransfer printing

Since sophisticated ID card applications normally require personalization on both sides of the card, the standard XID8600 model comes equipped for duplex printing, due to the factory-fitted built-in flipper module. A 200-card feeder and output hopper (for cards with a standard thickness of 0.76 mm) are similarly integrated.

For secure technology-based cards, an inline contact or contactless chip encoder, as well as a magnetic stripe encoder are also available. The XID8600 can be seamlessly connected to single or dual-sided inline lamination modules (Matica’s ILM-LS or ILM-DS) to increase the durability and tamper-resistance of cards.
