Evolis product manager Philippe Lesellier
Evolis is using CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS 2014 to launch Core, the companyís first printer to offer laser engraving using new technology. Developed in partnership with Italian firm Ixla, Core is a solution for encoding, printing, laser engraving and secured lamination in a single pass.
For governmental applications such as ID cards and driving licences, or applications in corporate environments like access control badges, some card profiles require tamper-proof security. Core is designed to fulfil this, leveraging the assets of existing Evolis printers Primacy (for graphic and electrical personalisation) and Securion (for lamination). Core will be a leader in terms of ìquality, price and functionalityî says Evolis product manager Philippe Lesellier. It is ìthe only system in todayís market to combine data encoding, double-sided dye sublimation printing in colour, laser engraving and laminationî, the firm insists. The solutionís encoding module can support a variety of technologies: magnetic, contact smart cards and contactless cards. Also, Evolis adds, Core offers a locking system that prevents access to the laser module and to the lamination films, to comply with all security requirements for producing cards and badges.
