Watch our set up and installation of the Magicard Helix, by clicking here.
This is the Magicard Helix card printer, it combines both high definition retransfer printing with an intelligent interface.
The Magicard Helix printer is possibly the most secure plastic card printer of its time, itís the worldís first retransfer printer to have built-in visual security. The Helix uses the Magicard HoloKoteģ feature to apply a standard watermark to all the cards during the printing process.
The new feature will also uniquely affect the retransfer film, this will result in the standard secure watermark being visible under UV lighting. With a simple upgrade, you can custom the watermark to a company logo or a recognisable image to add that extra layer of security.
Then there is the interactive touch screen, another first of its kind. The touch screen shows users connectivity, temperature and how many prints are left on the existing ribbon or film.
Canít figure out how to change the printer ribbon or change some of the settings? With the Helix, thereís no need to worry, the interactive touch screen has a library of animated video sequences to help the user with those common problems.
The Magicard Helix ID card printer can appear to some as a much smaller printer for its kind, but that where itís versatile nature comes into play. Although small for its type, this plastic card printer can be used for both bulk and single prints. So, you, the user, can print highly secure plastic cards in a matter of seconds for a simple replacement or print a bulk of cards for first-time use.
Unlike a lot of ID card printers, the standard security for the Helix is a Kensington lock, normally this sort of feature would be an additional £100 plus. This simply shows the dedication from Magicard to produce not only secure cards but to produce a secure environment for the cards. Simply print off plastic cards in bulk, lock the hopper and let the printer do the rest of the work while you do something else.
After all that security talk, letís move onto the more standard printer features.
The printer has a 200 card input and output hoppers, printers usually have an odd number of input and output hoppers. Having 200 on both sides make the print process heaps easier, put 200 cards in the input hopper and leave the output hopper empty, by the end of the print process the cards will have moved through the printer and will be in the correct order in the output hopper.
Wondering how long that print process of 200 cards is going to take, with the Magicard Helix Uno printer itís just one hour to print 125 cards. So to print 200 cards, itís only going to take 1 hour and 36 minutes.
To top this all of, the printer comes with a 3 Year Ultra-Cover Plus warranty, this includes printer loaner and a lifetime warranty on the print head.
