Matica MC660 High Resolution Retransfer Card Printer


High Resolution Retransfer Card Printer

  • High resolution (600 dpi)
  • Up to 170 color cards per hour
  • Over-the-Edge printing
  • On demand printing or batch processes
  • Lifetime warranty on the printhead


Designed to perfectly fit into any card issuance environment, the new Matica EDIsecure™ MC660 prints high quality cards thanks to its 600dpi resolution printhead on all types of card materials (PVC, PET, Polycarbonate, ABS). It reproduces crisp images and vivid colors making it a great choice for on-demand card issuance programs that require high quality printing.

Reliable and easy-to-use, Matica’s EDIsecure™ MC660 card printer offers high-performance printing on various card materials owing to its retransfer printing technology. This ensures immaculate coverage of the card’s full surface, including the edges, and this is extended to printing uneven card surfaces, such as smart contact and contactless cards.

The high quality output of its images and colors deliver the sort of results you expect for demanding applications and complex graphical card layouts. It also creates print micro-text which, combined with the use of UV ribbon and the new security ribbon (YMCKSc), increases the number of visual security elements (VSE) on the card for high security applications.

The input hopper, based on a cassette with a capacity of 250 cards, is located on the top of the printer for a user-friendly operation.

The MC660 is notably fast with an output of over 170 cards per hour when printing color single side.

For additional security and durability, a Matica MC-LX laser engraver and MC-L lamination module can be added.
