Evolis, the ID card and instant card printing product company, has launched its new lamination module for plastic cards, compatible with its desktop card printer Primacy. The company says that its card lamination module prevents forgery and significantly increases the durability of governmental cards or access control badges.
Since its creation in 2000, Evolis has deployed more than 370,000 print products, for users to issue plastic cards. Evolis has conceived a lamination module connected to its printer Primacy which now makes the lamination of national ID cards, military IDs, residency cards, employee badges or student cards possible, immediately after printing.
The new lamination module has been designed to connect to the Primacy through infrared, creating one single system for encoding (from magnetic stripes to RFID chips), printing and laminating plastic cards. The product, named Primacy Lamination, prints and laminates up to 215 single-sided cards or 110 double-sided cards per hour. Ribbons and lamination films after they’re installed are automatically recognised. The system is up and running after a quick warm up the makers add.
A range of lamination films with or without holograms are available. Evolis adds that it can also design and customise laminates to include unique and highly secure hologram patterns.
The French company Evolis, which has subsidiaries in USA, India, Asia Pacific and China, reports that it became the world leader for decentralized issuance systems of plastic cards in 2015, due to its industrial capacity to meet the requirements of large projects, and the ability to respond upon demand. A dedicated project team develops tailored solutions for system integrators the firm adds to support any card-based project, whether local or global.
Evolis projects include: badges for the military staff of the Kuwait Ministry of Defense; ID badges for Lebanese Customs Officers; driver’s licenses in Jordan, Bangladesh and Madagascar; and vehicle tax tags for the Ivory Coast. Most of these cards are laminated and contain a personalized hologram.
Philippe Lesellier, product manager at Evolis, says: “The demand for higher security is a growing concern for all. Our new offer is particularly adapted to the market requirements in terms of flexibility, security and ease of use at an affordable price. Regarding the technical support and training, the expertise of our local distributors is recognized throughout the world and is one of the key factors of our success.”
