The power of an industrial card printer. The flexibility of a desktop printer

    • Standard version without locking mechanism
    • Version with centralized locking system
  • Single-sided and dual-sided printing module
  • Edge-to-edge printing

  • Interchangeable input and output hoppers, capacity of 500 cards each (0.76 mm – 30 mil)
  • Aluminum body, black plastic covers

The Quantum card  printer is the solution for printing and encoding cards in large volumes.

It personalizes the cards front and back, in color or monochrome, with a printing speed of more than 1000 cards per hour.

Quantum combines the feel of a desktop printer with the power of an industrial printer for centralized production of plastic cards in large quantities.

Quantum is ideal for delivering large volumes of:

  • ID badges
  • Loyalty cards
  • Transit passes
  • Event badges
  • Student cards
  • Payment cards
  • Phone cards

Industrial productivity and ease of use

Thanks to its feed tray and stacker with a capacity of 500 cards each, the Quantum printer can deliver more than 1000 cards per hour in monochrome and more than 150 cards in color. With the reversible encoding module that is independent from the print module, the cards are encoded and printed in a single pass.

Ease of use

Quantum was designed to simplify and speed up every day operation and maintenance:

  • Load and retrieve the cards without removing the storage trays (on unlocked version)
  • Check the card level at a glance
  • LCD display showing printer status and consumable levels.

Economic solution

Quantum can handle large volumes of cards with very high print quality, providing a very economical alternative to industrial card printers. You can produce your cards yourself instead of having to go to an outside provider.

Flexibility for a long term investment

The printer comes standard with a removable encoding module for combined encoding of magnetic stripes, contact smart cards and contactless cards. Quantum can be customized on-site to meet your specific needs as they evolve.

Quantum is also available in a secure version

Quantum has an optional central locking feature to protect access to consumables (cards and ribbon) and to the encoding module, to make your card issuance system safe and secure.

Lasting investment

Quantum’s components, including its metal frame, were selected to ensure durability and reliability over time. The sealed cover as well as the cleaning process effectively protect against
dust and dirt. Thanks to Quantum’s top quality design, you can be sure that your investment will last.

Peace of mind guaranteed
