Zebra Technologies Corporation is exhibiting at ISC West the Zebra ZXP Series 8™, a retransfer printer that offers a host of options for smart card encoding and networking. Suitable for such applications as high-security ID cards, the printer produces photo-quality cards at nearly twice the speed of other retransfer printers currently on the market, Zebra Technologies said. It is engineered to deliver photo-quality, over-the-edge, high-speed printing on many different types of cards, including those with uneven surfaces such as smart cards, polycarbonate cards for security applications, and biopolymer cards. The printer is available in single- and dual-sided printing configurations, with a full portfolio of magnetic encoding, smart card encoding, single- and dual-sided lamination, and connectivity options.

“Industry adoption of retransfer printing has been slow, in part, because of slow print speeds and high costs,” said Ram Ramaprasad, director of product management for Zebra Technologies. “Zebra developed the ZXP Series 8 printer to respond to the industry’s need for an on-demand retransfer printer capable of delivering higher print speeds at lower costs without sacrificing the image quality.”
