The Quantum is divided into separate modules to speed up and manage different tasks (printing and encoding) simultaneously. Quantum guarantees a printing speed of at least 1000 cards per hour in monochrome (full card), and 150 cards per hour in colour. New processes and a patented encoding module for maximized throughput.

Cards are preloaded to speed to the personalization process With 2 distinct modules, printing and encoding tasks are performed simultaneously. The mag/smart encoding unit is reversible: the card is printed and encoded without having to be flipped over.

Combining the power of an industrial machine with the flexibility of a desktop printer, the new Quantum 2 offers versatility and modularity for any organization requiring volume printing of plastic ID cards. With the ability to be customized on-site by the user, the Quantum 2 ID printer is easily scaled to meet evolving card personalization needs.
