Entrust Datacard unveils new module


Entrust Datacard has launched the Datacard MX Series Laser 350 module. Designed to work inline with Datacard MX Series card issuance systems, the company says this module provides new personalisation features which offer security elements that are difficult to replicate, making this module ideal for card and credential programmes in the government and financial markets.

With this module, issuers can use the laser to engrave a variety of grayscale elements at over 400 dpi directly on the front and back of the card substrate. Engraveable elements include photos, alphanumeric text, bar codes, signature, fingerprint, logos, graphic images, scrambled indicia, tilted and ghost images and micro-engraving. The Laser 350 Module has been optimised to provide users with greater module throughput while still providing the ability to integrate multiple modules into the MX Series Card Issuance System to meet higher throughput demands.

Additionally, the module supports Datacard laser personalisation elements, which include:

Datacard PersoCurve Security Feature, which allows personalisation data to be printed in a non-standard format.

Datacard LaserTact Security Feature, which is a raised (tactile) feature that is difficult to reproduce, mostly without color, durable and easy-to-verify. Furthermore, when this feature is layered with other personalisation elements, it enables higher levels of security.

Datacard Photo Optimization Software, which enhances an original image, on the fly, during the card personalisation process.

“At Entrust Datacard, we are committed to providing our customers with the latest technologies to help in the fight against fraud,” says Dan Good, vice president of central issuance and services product management for Entrust Datacard. “With the new Laser 350 Module, issuers will have access to a wide variety of difficult-to-replicate security features which can be integrated into their card issuance process. This new module uses the latest in engraving technology to deliver high-speed, high-quality laser imaging of cards.”
