A powerful and efficient dual-sided card printer with single or dual-sided lamination and a tactile impression, the Datacard SD460 ID card printer is perfectly designed for medium to large card programs that need to print batches of secure cards.Efficient ID Card Printing
With 100 card input and output hoppers the SD460 ID card printer can easily handle batches of cards – and its single-pass printing technology makes batch printing even faster and easier! Single-pass printing means the printer will print, encode, and laminate a card in a single pass (without flipping the card and running it through the printer a second time, increasing the time it takes to print a card).
This efficient printer design is important if your organization needs to print large numbers of cards in a short amount of time, such as at the start of the school year or for large events. The SD460 can print up to 200 single-sided, single-sided lamination cards per hour, or 175 dual-sided cards with lamination.Secure Tactile Impression Printing
Datacard's unique patent-pending tactile impression creates card security you can see and feel. Using a tactile impression die, a design is physically impressed into your card. This makes it even hard to duplicate or tamper with the card – the impression is made over the lamination, so it will tear if someone tries to remove the lamination film.
The basic design options include an Education design, Medical design, Global design, Security design, and a Bank design. Or you can create a custom, unique design for your business for even greater security. This can include your logo, seal, or crest.
When choosing tactile impression, you'll need to make two choices – which die pattern you want, and the location on your card. You can impress the design more than once along the track, but must choose one:
- Track 1: This track goes along the top of the card (horizontal)
- Track 2: This track goes along the middle of the card (horizontal)
- Track 3: This track goes along the lower half of the card (horizontal)
Please note that you should never use the tactile impression over a magnetic stripe, or smart card chip/antennaProtect Your Cards with Lamination
The SD460 ID card printer comes standard with single-sided lamination, with an option for dual-sided lamination. An essential feature for making long-lasting cards, lamination works by applying a protective film (either clear or with a watermark-style designs) over the top of your printed card.
This clear film gives you several benefits – UV-blocking thick lamination film will protect your card design from fading quickly in sunlight; lamination will protect your card from day-to-day use, such as swiping cards in magnetic stripe readers, that may otherwise damage the card; and lamination makes it harder to tamper with a card.Printer Options & Upgrades
