The High Quality Reverse Transfer Card Printer

The Magicard Prima 4 ID card printer is a top of the range printer that utilizes reverse-transfer printing technology to print highly secure ID cards. This technology prints images onto a thin retransfer film in a "reverse image" and is heat transferred on to the card. The finished card quality is comparable to off-set litho printing. This produces the highest quality ID cards, and is often the best choice for the personalization of smart cards. You can add the Inline Laminator option, which can laminate on dual sides. There is a built-in USB and Ethernet port, and a large capacity card stock drawer. It can encode Magnetic stripe, Barcode, Contact & Contactless card. The Magicard Prima 4 is ideal for Driving Licenses, Airport Cards, National ID, Banking/Financial Cards, and Bureau Services.

Prima 4 Uno - Reverse Transfer Printer -  Single-sided
The Prima 4 uses reverse-transfer printing technology. Images are printed onto a thin retransfer film in a "reverse image" and heat transferred onto the card. The quality of the finished card is comparable to off-set litho printing, but with the advantage that every card can be different.
  • High quality reverse transfer printing
  • Robust and reliable print engine, capable of printing large card volumes over many years of use
  • Ethernet and USB 2.0 built in.
  • Wide range of add-in Contact Chip, Contactless Chip and Magnetic encoding option.
  • Flat cards every time with a built in bend remedy in every single-sided printer

One of the key advantages of Reverse Transfer or Re-transfer ID card printing technology is the increased yield when printing technology cards for access control. Cards constructed with embedded technologies such as IC chips or antennas typically have inconsistent surfaces. Direct to card printers require a completely flat print surface to achieve high quality images. Reverse transfer printers print on the reverse side of a clear film which is then laminated onto the card surface resulting in consistently high quality printed cards.

Images printed by the reverse transfer technology method tend to wear longer then cards printed by the direct to card printers. The process works like this: in addition to a color YMCK-type ribbon that all dye sublimation direct-to-card printers use, Re-transfer printers include a second clear polyester-based Re-transfer ribbon, often referred to as the Re-transfer "film". Instead of transferring dye directly from the YMCK-type ribbon onto a card, Re-transfer printers transfer, or sublimate, the dyes onto the clear Re-transfer film, then laminates this film to the card.

The advantages of Reverse Transfer technology are:

  • Very high print quality.
  • True over-the-edge printing on the card.
  • The ability to print onto uneven or bumpy cards, such as some contactless cards.
  • The ability to print onto non-PVC cards like ABS, PET, PVH and Polycarbonate.
Single-sided or Double-sided Lamination

The ILU (Inline Lamination Unit) module integrates exclusively with the Magicard Prima. A compact, single-sided laminator, it delivers an outstanding lamination result with all possible options.

When used with an optional Turnover Unit, the ID card laminator can laminate both sides of the card. By using two ID card laminators and a Turnover Unit, both sides can be laminated with different types of laminates. Regardless of whether thin holographic film or patches in various thicknesses are used - the result is always superb.

Connecting the ILU (Inline Lamination Unit) to the Prima printer is very easy using the provided joining plate. Simply position the printer and laminator side by side locating the feet through the appropriate alignment holes in the plate. Plug in the communication cable and you are ready to print and laminate cards.

Loading the over laminate rolls is extremely user friendly, the rolls are front-loaded, similar to the Prima printer. The ID card laminator is user programmable. Temperature and speed settings can be adjusted via the front panel display for optimum results with all card materials, including PVC, PVH, ABS, 100% PET and even Polycarbonate.

Lamination materials include thin holographic overlays and 0.5 mil and 1 mil patch laminates available in clear or custom formats.

Double-sided lamination

In addition to the single-sided ID card laminator described above, we also have available various Double-sided lamination options. You can choose between a double-sided laminator, which puts the same laminate on both sides of the card, or two single-sided ID card laminators used in line, which allows for different laminates on the front and back of the card. Please contact us to specify your lamination solution.
