The Meteor series of digital presses is becoming the solution of choice for graphics professionals in a wide range of industry segments including commercial printers, plastic card manufacturers, in-plants, book printers, photo printers, government agencies and envelope printers, among others.
Now available with a special envelope feeding module, you no longer sell simple color printing but sophisticated documents with full variable data and personalization, thus generating real added value and profit.
The JETcard utilizes blank cards (with smart chip, magnetic stripe or RFID) and is ideal for turnkey production from 1 card to millions, all ready to be sold (fully printed, personalized, coated, encoded & verified).
The JETcard is targeted for card manufacturers as well as commercial printers, maximizing productivity for high volume applications while still remaining cost-effective for short runs. The JETcard has already been awarded the prestigious “2010 Siemens Innovation Grand Prix” and a Graph Expo 2011 “Must See ’em” in recognition of MGI’s R&D achievement.
From an individual blank ISO CR-80 card, the JETcard is able to achieve, in one pass, the following processes:
− Pre-print coating ensures full compatibility with available substrates
− Printing in 4 to 6 UV colors with/without embossed print effects
− Micro text and guilloché patterns
− Full variable data printing including text, barcodes & images
− Spot UV coating or flood UV coating for card protection
− Security inks revealed only under a black light
− Printing of signature panel
− Read & write capabilities on HiCo/LoCo magnetic stripes
− Textured backgrounds printed with slight embossing effect
− Automated quality controls and ejection into rejection bin of defective cards
