Essentra Security to showcase ground-breaking new Magicard re-transfer ID card printer

Magicard Helix

Visitors to IFSEC International 2015 will be among the first in Europe to see a preview of the new Magicard Helix re-transfer ID card printer with built-in visual security.

The Magicard Helix is the world’s first re-transfer printer which can apply a secure visible watermark to each card during the re-transfer process. Using an evolution of Magicard’s highly acclaimed HoloKoteTM security feature, the Helix is able to exploit the wavelengths and lens effect of the re-transfer film to fluoresce under UV lighting conditions.

“In partnership with Magicard, Essentra Security will have a much larger stand at this year’s IFSEC,” said Sue Woodcock, Marketing Manager for Essentra Security. “The extra space will allow us to offer live demonstrations of the long list of innovative features which have been built into the highly impressive Helix ID card printer.”

An intuitive touch screen provides an easy-to-use interface to the Helix’s robust, high-volume print engine, whilst an array of other features include 1000 capacity ribbons, 200 capacity hoppers and easy load film cassettes to eliminate contamination.

As Europe’s leading distributor of card printers, systems and accessories to the ID Channel, Essentra Security will also be taking the opportunity to introduce some new ID solutions which have recently been launched by a number of other leading card printer manufacturers. These include the Datacard® SD160™ card printer which is designed to deliver a combination of affordability, security and simplicity to help users establish an ID card issuance programme and the Evolis Avansia re-transfer printer which is targeted at users who require very high quality card delivery and is capable of issuing more than 140 single-sided colour cards per hour.

Also on show will be ID card solutions offered by HID and Zebra, as well as new Swiftcolor SCC-2000D SCC-4000D inkjet models which provide the option to print onto both paper and plastic.

Essentra Security will be on stand E1650 at IFSEC International, which takes place at ExCeL London on 16-18 June, 2015.
