Evolis’s New Avansia Retransfer Card Printer

Posted September 22, 2014

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.

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.

Zebra’s fast and reliable ZXP Series 7 card printer will now offer a new enclosure lock option for applications requiring a secure printing environment.

A single key protects the printer and supplies from unauthorized use and locks the printer from several different access points:

  • The feeder cartridge lid is locked to prevent unauthorized access to cards and the cartridge itself is locked to the printer.
  • The options and ribbon cover are locked to prevent unauthorized access to the ribbon.
  • If the lamination module is present, the laminator cover is locked to prevent access to the laminates.

The lock option is only available on new units and cannot be upgraded in the field.
