Increasing card longevity and security

The MC-L2 laminator module is the ideal solution to enhance the durability and the security of cards printed on the MC310 direct to card printer or XID-M retransfer printer series. Easy to install and operate, the MC-L2 works inline to laminate cards at exceptional speeds, laminating both sides of the card in less than 20 seconds thanks to the simultaneous dual-side lamination process. 

The MC-L2 can be easily connected to the MC310 using a connection plinth, which also serves as a useful lockable storage unit for cards and cleaning kits. 

The MC-L2 is available in three different configurations to suit any card lamination application:
• Single-sided lower cassette only
• Single-sided upper cassette only
• Dual-sided with both lower and upper cassettes

Key strengths

  • Compact desktop design that seamlessly integrates with the MC310 direct-to-card printer or XID-M retransfer printer series 
  • Up to 180 cards per hour
  • Controllable from the Matica XPS driver or from EDIsecure

Ideal for

  • National ID cards
  • Driving licenses
  • Resident cards
  • Corporate cards
  • Campus / student cards


  • Continuous overlay film or patch laminate
  • Standard or customized holographic or
    clear laminate
  • Single-sided (upper or lower cassette) or
    dual-sided lamination
  • Front cover lock

Enhancing card security

Once personalized by the printer, cards can be laminated with the MC-L2 by using a heat-sealing film. This film can contain holographic and other Visual Security Elements (VSEs) for enhanced protection. Matica offers a range of standard holographic designs in both patch laminate and continuous film formats. For the ultimate security protection, organisations can opt for a customized holographic laminate with VSEs that are unique to them – this approach is often adopted for government secure documents such as driving licenses and national ID cards.

Reinforcing card durability

Another important reason to laminate pre-personalized cards is to increase the durability and extend the life of the card, thanks to the enhanced mechanical and UV resistance of the lamination material. A card laminated with a 1.0 mil (35 micron) patch can have a lifecycle of up to 10 years – a timeframe often mandated for government/citizen ID schemes.
