The new card laminator by Evolis increases security of government cards and access control badges


Angers, 25 August 2016 – Evolis, the world leader for personalization solutions and instant printing systems launches its new lamination module for plastic cards compatible with its desktop card printer Primacy. The Evolis 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 printing systems across the world, enabling organizations and companies to instantly issue plastic cards.  In order to satisfy the requirements of those organizations for more secure and rapidly issued documents, 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.


Enhanced durability and security

The new lamination module has been designed to connect to the Evolis card printer Primacy through infrared, creating one single system for encoding (from magnetic stripes to RFID chips), printing and laminating plastic cards. The system, named Primacy Lamination, prints and laminates up to 215 single-sided cards or 110 double-sided cards per hour. Ribbons and lamination films are easily installed and are automatically recognized. The system is up and running after a quick warm up period.


A large choice of laminates and specific developments on demand

A large range of lamination films with or without holograms completes this product offer. Evolis can also design and customize laminates to include unique and highly secure hologram patterns. Therefore, official cards, such as driver’s licenses, national ID cards, etc. as well as access control badges obtain maximum durability and a very high level of security.


A global expert for tailored projects

The French company Evolis, which has subsidiaries in USA, India, Asia Pacific and China, has become the world leader for decentralized issuance systems of plastic cards in 2015, due to its industrial capacity to meet the stringent requirements of large tailored projects, and the ability to respond rapidly and efficiently upon demand.  A dedicated project team develops tailored solutions for system integrators willing to support any card-based project, whether local or global.

Evolis has won numerous projects requesting highly secure cards. Examples are: badges for the military staff of the Kuwait Ministry of Defense;  ID badges for Lebanese Customs Officers; driver’s licenses in Jordan, Bangladesh or Madagascar ; or vehicle tax tags for the Ivory Coast.  Most of these cards are laminated and contain a personalized hologram. Thus, many thousands of people can be equipped with a highly secure official card with the minimum of delay.  


Ease of use and technical support in each country

“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,” explains Philippe Lesellier, product manager at Evolis. “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.”
