MGI JETcard

Utilizing MGI’s award winning and revolutionary inkjet technology, the JETcard provides card manufacturers with an all-inclusive printing solution. 

The JETcard utilizes blank cards (with smart chip, magnetic stripe or RFID) and is ideal for turnkey production from 1 card to millions, all ready to be sold (fully printed, personalized, coated, encoded & verified). 

The JETcard is targeted for card manufacturers as well as commercial printers, maximizing productivity for high volume applications while still remaining cost-effective for short runs. The JETcard has already been awarded the prestigious "2010 Siemens Innovation Grand Prix" and the Graph Expo 2011 "Must See 'em", in recognition of MGI’s R&D achievement. 

From an individual blank ISO CR-80 card, the JETcard is able to achieve in one pass, the following processes: 

- Pre-print coating to ensure a full compatibility with the substrates available on the market (PVC, ABS, paper, etc.) 
- Printing in 4 to 6 UV colors 
- Micro text and guilloché patterns 
- Full variable data printing including text, barcodes & images 
- Spot UV coating or flood UV coating for card protection 
- Security inks revealed only under a black light 
- Read & write capabilities on HiCo/LoCo magnetic stripes 
- Automated quality controls and ejection into a rejection bin of the defective cards

New Enhanced Printing functions (2011)
-Printing with spectacular embossing/3D effects or flat print effect
-Opaque white UV ink now available
-Signature panel printing
-Variable Data Printing even on embossed/3D effects

Drop-on-demand technology and an integrated RIP enable full variable data printing on all JETcard inks and coatings. For example, the security coating can be used as an anti-counterfeiting feature, revealing inks only when held under a black light. 

MGI’s JETcard is a true Card Factory and can replace up to 5 different pieces of equipment traditionally used in the plastic card production chain: Litho press, collator, lamination press, die cutter and encoder/personalization printer. 

Other key features of the JETcard include: 

• A production speed up to 8,000 cards per hour (simplex) 
• One of the highest print resolutions available (up to 720 x 2160 dpi) 
• Accommodates PVC, Teslin, synthetic or paper cards from 350-1000 microns (ISO CR-80 format) 
• HiCo/LoCo magnetic stripe support (read/write) 
• Capability to store up to 2,500 cards within 5 different magazines 
• Automated controls for ensuring data accuracy between card front and back
