The fire red Primacy LCD Simplex Printer from Evolis will satisfy the requirements of many demanding institutions or businesses looking to create a secure, personalized ID system. Using a direct-to-card dye sublimation or resin thermal transfer process, the Primacy can create vivid, detailed cards at resolutions starting at 300 x 300 dpi and going up to 300 x 1200 dpi. It is capable of single-sided printing as well with a speed of 190 to 225 cards per hour with a YMCKO ribbon and 800 to 1000 cards per hour with a monochrome ribbon. Along with this, the printer boasts edge-to-edge printing for card designs without limitations.
For operation, the Primacy can handle batch jobs with ease thanks to a 100-card input hopper and a 100-card output hopper. Along with this there is a 50-card reject box available to quickly and easily separate mistakes from an otherwise good batch. The printer is also simplified with notification and status LEDs on the front to serve as alerts for the user. Additionally, the Primacy has a Kensington-style lock slot for security and features both USB and Ethernet connectivity.
Primacy is suitable for printing large runs because it personalizes color cards in record time, up to 225 cards per hour for single-sided printing.
The large capacity card feeder and output tray hold 100 cards so you don't have to refill the printer as often. Primacy offers high capacity in a compact footprint.
Primacy features 300-dpi photographic resolution and edge-to-edge printing for optimum print quality. Thanks to enhanced graphical processing, you get a faithful depiction of the images in high definition and more precise monochrome texts.
Ease of Use
The card feeder and hopper can be directly accessed on the front, so you can keep an eye on the printing
The Evolis High Trust print ribbons are easy to install and automatically recognized by the printer
The printer adapts to how you use it: From your computer, the Evolis Premium Suite® software lets you easily control the printer thanks to notifications on your screen. From the printer, you can interact with the printer in real time using the optional LCD screen. This is ideal for over-the-counter uses (bank cards, travel cards, casino cards, loyalty cards, gift cards, and many more)
You can upgrade your printer with magnetic stripe, contact or contactless chip encoders whenever you want.
