The Matica LES8000 is a highly secure laser engraver enabling ID card personalization. This solution is perfect for government agencies that issue secure cards. Matica’s advanced technology brings the unprecedented quality and power of industrial laser engraving to the desktop in a stand-alone system or it can be added inline to an existing Matica XID printer. Compact, light (less than 32 kg), scalable and capable of multiple card handling.
In a world that needs protecting more than ever, Matica’s LES8000 laser engraving system targets professionals responsible for safeguarding national identity management. Designed to support government departments that manage in-branch or in-bureau card issuance, the LES8000 is the perfect fi t for applications such as drivers’ licenses, national IDs, visas and vehicle registration cards.
The LES8000 allows parallel processing for maximized throughput: feeder encoder and/or barcode reading, laser engraving and single or dual lamination. Multiple feeders allow several types of cards to be managed in one production line. The modular system can add up to four Feeder Encoding Modules (FEM), increasing the capacity of card stock from 350 to 1,400 cards without interrupting production. This makes it one of the fastest solutions on the market and a persuasive return on investment.
For an even higher volume, yon can also create and operate a parallel workflow of multiple units through the Advanced Intelligent Printer Management. Furthermore, its modular design allows you to continue to configure by combining an XID8300 or XID8600 card printer for inline printing, upgrade or swap components to suit the jobs it has to complete. For instance, a single or dual-sided lamination module (e.g. Matica’s ILM-LS or ILM-DS) or third party chip encoders can be integrated upon request. Lastly, various physical and electronic locks enhance the model’s own safety features to prevent unauthorized access.
Service bureaus and national authorities will thank you for the introduction to a fully automated, personalized process but there’s more. Compared to a central issuance system, the LES8000 is a very compact, a real desktop solution. Its modularity makes it is easy to swap service for various card jobs allowing new jobs and card types to be added over time.
The LES8000 relies on a robust 6W DPSS laser to achieve a printing resolution of 600 to 1,600 dpi. This allows capturing maximum details in the reproduction of ID pictures in gray scale. Integration of microtext as an extra anti-counterfeit measure is similarly feasible at this print resolution. This model’s printing method enables the addition of MLI (Multiple Laser Image) and CLI (Changeable Laser Image), tactile and non-tactile engraving. Laser security options further include offset registration, MRZ reading and a vacuum system. Magnetic stripe, as well as contact and contactless smart card encoding are similarly available.
Amazingly, it’s a one-stop-shop thanks to its single wire IP connectivity and the IPSC Secure Controller so it’s easy to install and operate – no integration challenges. The solution’s own security features include various physical and electronic locks to prevent unauthorized access.
