The MX2100 system offers the best features and most advanced technology available in an affordable system.
Speed and Economy
Personalize up to 1,200 cards per hour with greater functionality and less waste.
True Field Modularity
Minimize the risk and guesswork needed when selecting a static system configuration. Let your system expand with your operation with truly field-installable modules.
MX Series Software Platform
Get the flexibility and freedom that comes with a common software platform.
Transition to higher volume MX Series systems when the need arises.
Provide seamless back up to existing systems through high-demand periods.
Avoid interruptions to higher-volume issuance for batch runs.
Smart Card Productivity
Process contact, contactless, dual interface or combi smart cards in a smaller system footprint with innovative smart card technology.
Reduce errors and waste by verifying physical and electronic card elements inline. Astonishing inline capabilities reduce the need for manual inspection and directly increase throughput. Cost savings are magnified when issuing smart cards.
The system controller features an easy-to-use graphical interface plus the hardware and software required to control the activities of each card personalization module, the data it handles and the system as a whole.
Card input module Feeds cards into the system with high reliability. Multiple card input modules allow issuers to use different plastic card stocks to increase efficiency or add capacity for large, complex jobs.
Card cleaning module Removes damaging dirt, dust and contaminants from both sides of each plastic card in a single pass prior to graphics or color card printing.
Vision verification module
Provides inline plastic card stock verification and visual check of personalized cards, which improves data integrity and helps reduce the risk of errors.
Magnetic stripe encoding module Writes one to three tracks of data in parallel with read/write heads that support all ISO, AAMVA and JIS encoding formats and common coercivity requirements.
OCR-B/Bar code scanner module
Reads pre-printed serial numbers, document control numbers and bar codes on cards to secure card blanks and sends data to the controller.
Smart card personalization module
Personalizes contact and contactless cards, and dual interface and hybrid cards, in a single module. This module reduces the need for separate contact and contactless modules, which helps reduce the overall capital investment.
Single-step color printing module
Print full-color, 300 dpi high-resolution photos and images directly on the card using dye diffusion, thermal transfer technology. The system allows for near edge-to-edge printing and provides customers with a low cost color printing technology in a compact footprint.
Graphics printing module
Prints monochrome custom graphics including text, logos, bar codes on PVC cards using thermal transfer technology.
Basic topcoat module
Applies clear or holographic topcoats with full edge-to-edge coverage to protect graphics and images.
CardGard™ UV-curing topcoat module
Apply full-card, state-of-the art card protective topcoat to embossed, indented or flat cards using a patented method material to extend card life.
Ensure high-quality, ISO-compliant card embossing and indent printing with tightly aligned character-to-character spacing and consistent text height and location.
Applies colored topping foil material to embossed characters, making them attractive and easier to read.
Label affixing module
Applies a wide variety of removable adhesive labels to plastic cards with accurate placement and consistent alignment.
Card flipper module
Rotates cards for back-side personalization using a front-side personalization module.
Quality assurance module
Verifies and reads both optical and electronic elements of each card that passes through the system which includes embossing and indenting characters, topping quality, graphics and color printing, laser engraving, magnetic stripe and smart card data as well as facial recognition through pattern matching, all which helps reduce costly manual quality inspections and increase production efficiencies.
Multi-card buffer module
Increases efficiency by holding or passing cards to maintain card order when rejects occur, or system configuration includes modules with different throughputs.
Card output module
Stacks good cards and rejected cards in two separate trays.
Inline card delivery
Use the Datacard® MXD™ Lite or MXD™ card delivery system to print forms and affix cards. Add the MXi™ envelope insertion system to create powerful, highly personalized mail packages inline with superior efficiency.
