Cost effective financial card embosser with indenting and tipping features

The S5200E is Matica’s compact desktop embossing solution and is capable of personalizing 500 cards per hour. Dedicated for mid size and distributed issuance programs, the S5200E is designed to exceed the single shift duty cycle, while ensuring consistent performance and output quality. Its modular combination of embossing drums, single and multiple encoding stations, combined with a tipping unit, makes it suitable for banks and bureaus alike.

The S5200E is designed to minimize maintenance and downtimes to ensure business continuity. Flexible, effective, and secure encoding capabilities for contact and contactless chips meet demanding applications – including EMV standards.

Secure, tabletop embossing for effective bank card issuance

Offering ISO compliant embossing, indenting, and infilling of the front and rear of the card in a single step, the S5200E is the perfect solution for credit or debit card personalization. The robust 98 character drum comes as standard, while the upgrade to a 114 character version can combine both credit and debit capabilities. The professional tipping module provides excellent results thanks to a wide range of long lasting and cost effective tipping foils and colors.

Using a proprietary engine developed for industrial applications, the S5200E is built on the strengths of Matica’s S5000 series – integrating a full module to host encoding stations. This solution adds multi-chip contact and contactless options to the existing magnetic stripe and single chip.

The system enables EMV card personalization using PC/SC based encoders, both single and multiple, or by using high performance Ethernet connected multi-chip units. The S5200E sets a new standard in card personalization.
