The Matica S4200LX is the best-in-class laser engraving solution for decentralized on-site ID card issuance. The system offers a proven, reliable structure for volume issuance card personalization with embedded security features such as micro-text, tactile effects, braille, MRZ, and ghost images. The state-of-the-art laser source and the dual module architecture fulfils the most demanding requirements in terms of flexibility, performances, quality of engraving and handling of delicate or specialty cards.

The S4200LX is able to engrave Changeable Laser Image (CLI) /Multiple Laser Image (MLI) are floating images, which show different graphics depending on the viewing angle. In order to introduce this security feature, the card body needs to be prepared with the called “CLI/MLI window”. During the card personalization process, the laser prints the text (or image) through the window at two different angles. As a result, the information contained in that specially prepared area of the card body is visible when titling the card horizontally (X-axle) – otherwise, ‘MLI’ – or vertically (Y-axle) – otherwise ‘CLI’ – showing different information


The S4200LX is designed to meet the growing demand in the low volume issuance of very specific document such as:

All documents require certain levels of security to be embedded in the document to reduce the risk of counterfeiting and to provide options for overt and forensic detection.


The range of Matica’s laser card issuance extends from instant issuance to low, mid and high-volume solutions. All of them are specifically calibrated and tuned for the application they are designed to do, and no matter what solution is used the result is an excellently produced document with the same high finish. For our customers involved in complex projects, this offer is a unique proposition that combines instant and central issuance as well as a distribution component as when it is required.


MaticardPro software is Matica’s standard production software and features in numerous Products, markets and applications. Typically, it needs some interface with pre-existing MaticardPro software in order to issue secure documents, but it can also interface with third party software with a quick and easy setup alongside with its multiple platform database connection options.


Options for the S4200LX give you the ability to encode Single Contact, Contactless or Dual interface Smart Card encoding station.
