HID Global Unveils New HID ELEMENT Product Line

The product line addresses demands for greater print speed, higher resolution, larger card output, and better cost-per-card economy, says the company.

HID Global, an identity solutions provider, introduces its new product line HID® ELEMENT, the industry’s first heavy-duty, desktop-based card personalization portfolio, according to the company.

Modular and scalable, HID ELEMENT offers high-resolution, UV inkjet printing, optional laser engraving, and an array of encoding options to meet a broad range of credential program requirements.

Designed to serve government and financial institutions, medium-to-large enterprises and service bureaus, the product line’s features address demands for greater print speed, higher resolution, larger card output, and better cost-per-card economy.

“From government entities to financial card issuers and service bureaus, customers around the world have unique card personalization and issuance requirements where traditional direct-to-card printers and large production machines may be too cost- or space-prohibitive,” said Craig Sandness, HID’s Vice President and Managing Director of Secure Issuance. “By bridging the gap between desktop printers and central issuance machines, our HID ELEMENT product line pioneers a new approach for delivering a host of highly configurable options that address current and evolving customer challenges.”

Key product line features include:

  • Drop on Demand (DOD) inkjet card printing. Options span full-color over-the-edge or monochrome text and graphics printing with up to six configurable ink channels. Users also have the options for custom colors, fluorescents, and color tactile effects.
  • Laser engraving system for tamper-proof, high durability card personalization. Users can deliver secure sub-surface or tactile effect black markings and greyscale imaging in a laser engraving-only system or combined with a color UV ink module.
  • Multiple card encoding options; HID OMNIKEY® or third-party (Smartware®) contact and contactless reader and programmer functionality and magstripe support.
  • Lenticular personalization. Multiple/Changeable Linear Image (MLI/CLI) engraved images or data shift with the viewing angle for convenient authentication.
  • Optional modules; include input/output card hopper for a total capacity of up to 1,600 cards and a camera system for registration and verification.
