MC-LX  – Unparalleled Desktop Laser Module

The Matica MC-LX is Matica’s third generation desktop laser engraving module. The MC-LX gives the ability to laser mark a card to create micro text, CLI and MLI, tactile effects, braille, MRZ, ghost image, Tru/Window Lock or Matica Secure Protected Image (MSPI™). As an optional upgrade, the MC-L lamination module can apply a clear or custom holographic foil and UV blocker chemical components to providing extra durability and protection for the card.

Its engraving capabilities also ensure excellent performances in quality and accelerated speed on most materials used for standard and special applications, including PC, PVC*, PETG* and ABS*.

The MX-LX is powered by fiber Master Oscillator Power Amplifier (MOPA) technology laser source. A new patent-pending card transportation system called “scratch-free” TRIPODE secures a friction-less transportation during the production. The sophisticated card transport method allows the card to tilt in all directions so the laser beam can reach all areas of the card. The integrated flip-over and vertical adjustment for “out-of-focus” effects reduces the number of hardware parts making the activation of options virtually installation-free. Unlike former desktop laser module, MC-LX has upgraded without the needs of mirrors or extra hardware part while performing visual security elements such as CLI and MLI Secure Visual Elements (SVE).

The MC-LX can be used as a standalone unit or it can be combined with a 600 dpi Matica MC660 retransfer printer. Adding an MC660 printer give it the benefits of advanced visual security features from over-the-edge dye sublimation retransfer technology – essentially, bringing the power of an industrial quality laser engraving machine to a desktop format.

The MC-LX Laser Module can also be purchased as a combination unit with a MC660 card printer at a lower cost as a LCP9660 Laser Color Personalization System.

*Laser engraving PETG, ABS or PVC requires using an additional vacuum system.
