Robustness for high security card issuance

Avansia is a Retransfer technology direct-to-card printer for very high quality card delivery. Designed for rigorous use, Avansia is extremely robust and provides high security card issuance.

Avansia is ideal for delivering:

A Retransfer printer designed for heavy duty card issuance activities

Flawless printing

Retransfer technology (Reverse Transfer) maximizes print quality:  

  • High resolution 600 dpi: images and text are rendered perfectly and micro-text and watermarks are printed in high definition.
  • Over the edge printing: this printer will guarantee that your edges print perfectly since the film fully covers the card.
  • Evolis High Trust® consumables : their use provides flawless results.

Increased productivity

Avansia is exceptionnaly fast with an output of more than 140 single-sided color cards per hour.
Thanks to the high capacity feed tray and output tray (250 cards each) - and high capacity consumables (500 prints per roll), you can print your card runs with no interruptions.

Maximum endurance

Designed to issue cards intensively, Avansia is robust and reliable. Its 3-year standard warranty and life time warranty on the print head guarantee your long-term investment. Avansia can operate in critical environments (dust, heat...) thanks to its airtight structure.

A flexible and secured printer

Media compatibility

The Avansia Retransfer technology can print on all types of cards (PVC, PET, polycarbonate, ABS), including uneven card surfaces, such as smart contact and contactless cards.
The standard built-in card flattener delivers perfect results.

Multiple encoding options

To meet your specific needs, Avansia can be configured for all types of data encoding options: magnetic stripe, contact and contactless smart cards. These factory-configured encoding options can be combined.

Enhanced security

Avansia can be easily locked by removing the RFID electronic key. This quite simply prevents any attempt to use the printer. A mecanical key lock, available as an option, prevents access to consumables. Moreover, Avansia comes with a security slot (Kensington® type).
