New Magicard Helix

The new Magicard Helix retransfer card printer combines high definition retransfer print quality with an intelligent interface and in-line visual security and is available NOW from Total ID.

Intuitive touch screen interface

The Magicard Helix is the first ever desktop card printer to feature an interactive touch-screen interface. Visual indicators show connectivity, temperature and how many prints are remaining on all consumables. A preview screen during printing shows the exact card being personalised and its progress through the print cycle. The intuitive interface makes it easy to change settings, with additional help provided through animated video sequences.

High-volume best quality printing

The Magicard Helix uses a retransfer printing process, where images are first printed onto a thin film then heat transferred onto the card surface. This produces the highest resolution photo quality image, printed right over the edge of the card. By printing on to this controlled substrate, print imperfections due to irregular card surfaces or around embedded card chips are eliminated. Equipped with a high grade processing unit, Helix is powered by Magicard’s most advanced and durable print engine and features our highest capacity consumables (1000 prints) and hoppers (200 cards), making it ideal for high volume localised or even centralised issuance.

The most versatile card issuance printer?

The Magicard Helix prints litho-quality cards from a compact desktop package. This versatility enables you to issue secure IDs in high volume or in small volumes for replacement or additional credentials. Its Custom HoloKote watermark feature provides an extra layer of visual security without the need for an inline lamination unit and expensive custom overlays with high MOQs. Single-sided Helix printers can be upgraded to double-sided capability with a simple electronic upgrade key.
