Matica XID 8600 Description
The Matica XID 8600 ID card printer is the top-end model in the 8XXX printer series. It features an ultra-high resolution of 600DPI for increased security printing demands and comes standard with a flipper module for dual-sided printing. The XID 8600 printer uses the same supplies as the XID 9300 printer, so supplies are easy to find.
- Simple to use printer
The Matica XID 8600 dual-sided ID card printer utilizes a series of features to make printing simpler and more efficient. The printer features easy to change front-loading cartridges and ribbons so that changing supplies is fast and easy. The front mounted LCD screen gives important updates, such as low ribbon warnings & cleaning notifications.
- High resolution edge-to-edge printing
The XID 8600 printer utilizes retransfer printing technology which allows for rich color images to be printed across the entire card without white borders around the edges. The ultra-high 600 DPI of the printer is capable of printing character sizes down to 1.3pt making it well suited to high security applications such as national ID programs. Additionally, because the printer uses retransfer printing technology, the printhead never comes in contact with the card which minimizes the risk of expensive printhead damage and downtime.
- Reliable and secure design
The XID8600 retransfer printer is designed with security and reliability in mind. The printer offers a variety of options for securing cards and media including options for locking hoppers, Kensington lock, dye-sublimation UV ink ribbon, IPSEC for encrypted data transfer through networks, and security erase of black data used on supplies. These measures can help secure both the environment and cards from counterfeiting and prevent the misuse of personal information.
- Optional – Lamination
The Matica XID 8600 printer is compatible with the Matica ILM-LS & ILM-DS lamination units which offer single and dual sided lamination. Adding lamination to your cards adds an additional layer of security and durability.
- Optional – Card encoding
The XID 8600 printer is capable of handling several encoding options such as smart card encoding, contact or contactless chip encoding (Mifare, DESFire, HID iClass, and more), and a variety of chip encoder plug-ins for advanced CEF.
