HID Global Unveils New HID ELEMENT Product Line

Published: October 3, 2020

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.”
