Reverse Image Transfer (Re-Transfer) Card Printing Technology
This ID card printer utilizes “Re-Transfer” printing technology, which diffuses ink (in the form of a ribbon) to a dye receptive film known as a “transfer film”. Once all necessary colors have been applied to the transfer film, it is then fused to a blank PVC or Composite card material. This two-step printing process allows for a high definition “over the edge” printed card. Since the transfer process is not limited by a fixed printhead, but rather utilizes the flexible transfer film material, the re-transfer method is ideal for highly detailed imagery (up to 600dots/in), which can be applied to uneven surfaces such as ID cards with embedded electronic chips (smart cards). Along with advanced printing definition and overall card coverage, the lifespan of a re-transfer printhead is dramatically increased by the lack of contact with the card substrate.
This ID card printer prints with a resolution of 600 dpi (dots per inch) or 23.6 dpm (dots per millimeter).
Single Sided ID Card Printing
This ID card printer can print on only one side of a PVC or Composite card.
