Modular card personalization system, configurable for any high volume issuance requirement

The S7000 combines all of Matica’s card issuance expertise and technologies in to one fully configurable inline, high volume, high speed platform. It’s robust, modular design can incorporate thermal printing, laser engraving, embossing, card encoding, mailing and even drop-on-demand inkjet printing. It is the ultimate central issuance system and can be configured to perfectly match any requirements, including financial and governmental (ID) card issuance. It can easily be upgraded with additional modules that enable increased speed, performance and throughput.

The S7000 is scalable from a single-function system up to a fully loaded configuration combining multiple personalization technologies. It is capable of embossing over 1000 cards per hour (cph) and printing up to 1800 cards per hour. Its high yield contact/contactless chip encoder can be optimized to the appropiate production rate.

The S7000 platform is a complete end-to-end solution, which is able to combine card personalization with the in-line MS1000 card mailing system to prepare cards for delivery to the end user. This offers a flexible solution for direct card mailing and fulfilment applications, ensuring cards are kept secure throughout the issuance process. The entire issuing and mailing environment is controlled by Matica’s Maticard Pro control software – with tools to convert data, this software can manage and produce jobs alongside other machines whilst successfully switching quickly between smaller batches.
