Product Overview

The Quantum, a dual-sided plastic card printer, is designed specifically for high-volume badge personalization.
With a total printing capacity of 1000 cards in full colour, the Quantum is the ideal solution for markets that require volume and capacity: service bureau, access control, time attendance, healthcare, telecommunications.


  • Increased productivity
    Thanks to its feed tray and stacker with a capacity of 500 cards each, the Quantum printer can deliver more than 1000 cards per hour in monochrome and more than 150 cards in color. With the reversible encoding module that is independent from the print module, the cards are encoded and printed in a single pass.

  • Ease of use

    Quantum was designed to simplify and speed up every day operation and maintenance:
    • Load and retrieve the cards without removing the storage trays (on unlocked version).
    • Check the card level at a glance
    • LCD display showing printer status and consumable levels

  • Economic solution
    Quantum can handle large volumes of cards with very high print quality, providing a very economical alternative to industrial card printers. You can produce your cards yourself instead of having to go to an outside provider.

  • Multiple encoding
    The printer comes standard with a removable encoding module for combined encoding of magnetic stripes, contact smart cards and contactless cards. Quantum can be customized on-site to meet your specific needs as they evolve.

  • Quantum is also available in a secure version
    Quantum has an optional central locking feature to protect access to consumables (cards and ribbon) and to the encoding module, to make your card issuance system safe and secure.

  • Lasting investment
    Quantum's components, including its metal frame, were selected to ensure durability and reliability over time. The sealed cover as well as the cleaning process effectively protect against dust and dirt. Thanks to Quantum's top quality design, you can be sure that your investment will last.

  • Peace of mind guaranteed
    With our standard warranty covering 500,000 insertions the first year and our optional warranty extensions, you don't have to worry about a thing.
