Matica unveils laser engraving system


Matica Technologies has announced its new standalone laser engraving system, the LES8000.

Matica says its LES8000 laser engraving system supports government security professionals responsible for safeguarding national identity management.

The company reports that LES8000 starts with 400dpi printing but goes up to 1600dpi high resolution and generates crystal clear grey scale for ID pictures. LES8000 is compact, light (each module is less than 32kg) and scalable. Its single wire IP connectivity allows easy installation and operation.

For those needing to manage several types of card stock or uninterrupted production, Matica says its LES8000 laser engraver can be configured with up to four card feeders, increasing the capacity to 1,400 cards (four x 350 cards). Its parallel card processing maximises production throughput (encoding, engraving and laminating).

According to Matica, the low power DPSS laser technology has been developed exclusively for high security government applications. The system is targeted at government agencies focusing on in-branch or in-bureau card issuance. It can be used to issue national ID cards, drivers’ licenses, visas and vehicle registration cards.

Optimised security features include a changeable or multiple laser image (CLI/MLI), tactile and non-tactile engraving, offset registration and MRZ reading.

“Completing the new generation of Matica lasers for 2016, the LES8000 will enjoy a prime place in the market considering its unprecedented desktop power. It now means that we have the widest configuration of laser solutions on the market,” says Sandro Camilleri, CEO, Matica Technologies Group.

“We are certain that the LES8000 will be favoured by government agencies and service bureaus working on secure card issuance whether that’s by decentralised ways producing cards in offices or by centralisation,” adds Frédéric d’Orsay, vice president of Global Sales Secure ID. “I fully expect this exceptional system to support any country that places national security issues and protecting their citizens at the top of their government’s agenda.”

LES8000 is available through Matica´s partner network.
