AVANSIA: Evolis leverages retransfer technology to help card personalization hit new heights in quality
Beaucouzé, France, September 15, 2014. Evolis, a leader in advanced solutions for plastic card personalization, introduces AVANSIA, a new printer loaded with the retransfer technology, for premium quality in card printing.
Flawless quality and efficiency at its best
AVANSIA, the latest in card printers from Evolis, capitalizes on retransfer card printing, a technology that is proven to deliver top-notch quality. With retransfer, card printing is performed in two steps: first, the card layout is printed on a transparent film; then the print layer is transferred from the film to the card. This technology makes it possible to cover the entire surface of the card. Avansia’s 600dpi print head delivers vivid quality images, as well as sharp texts, microprints and water marks.
This retransfer technology offered by AVANSIA supports and actually improves a variety of applications: employee badges, secured access cards, student IDs, payment cards, official identification cards, driver’s licenses, and more.
AVANSIA is a fast printer that can issue more than 140 single-sided color cards per hour. The printer supports the delivery of cards in large runs, thanks to its large-capacity feeder and output hopper (250 cards each), as well as consumables from the Evolis High Trust® range that are engineered for this type of personalization.
Designed for heavy-duty card delivery, AVANSIA is a robust and reliable printer. The 3-year standard warranty, coupled with the lifetime warranty on the print head, makes your investment sustainable over the long run.
A variety of encoding options and tamperproof security
The retransfer technology from AVANSIA makes it possible to print on any card profile (PVC, PET, polycarbonate, ABS…), even on cards with an uneven surface. To support specific requirements, AVANSIA benefits from all types of encoding which can be combined: magnetic, smart contact and contactless. Note that this printer has an additional smart security feature: an RFID-based electronic key, which can be removed in order to prevent rogue use of the printer. A mechanical lock system is also available as an option.
“With Avansia, Evolis expands its range with a premium product which will allow us to strengthen our capacity to answer the needs of high volume applications, specifically in the security, education and banking markets.” says Delphine Bidaud, Product Manager, Evolis.
