Description Technical Specs Extended Information
MGI JETcard 3D

Utilizing MGI’s award winning and revolutionary inkjet technology, the JETcard 3D provides card manufacturers with an all-inclusive printing/encoding/finishing solution.

MGI’s JETcard 3D 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.

The JETcard 3D utilizes pre-cut blank cards (with/without 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 3D 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 3D has already been awarded the prestigious "2010 Siemens Innovation Grand Prix" and the “2011 Engineering Prize", in recognition of MGI’s R&D achievement.

Key Advantages

  • JETcard 3D is a true Card Factory which can replace up to 5 traditional pieces of equipment - offset press, collator, lamination press, die cutter and personalization printer/encoder.
  • Since the JETcard 3D requires a single operator - instead of 3 to 5 with traditional processes - this reduces costs dramatically while achieving breakthrough productivity levels.
  • The JETCard 3D combines the qualitative/quantitative advantages of an offset press (speed, output, inks) with the flexibility of digital printing technology (variable data printing and on-demand production capabilities).
  • MGI's inkjet technology and the integrated RIP allows all types of variable data printing with all JETcard 3D inks coatings - including the UV security ink.
  • The JETcard 3D is designed for seamless plastic card production. A single operator can supervise the whole production - even for a 250,000 card batch. Everything is automated and fully digitally controlled.

From an individual blank ISO CR-80 card, the JETcard 3D is able to achieve in one pass, the following processes:
  • Pre-coating to ensure a full compatibility with the substrates available on the market (plastic, paper, PLA, etc.)
  • Printing 4, 6, 8 colors to expand the spectrum of the printable colors
  • Optional white opaque ink
  • Optional security ink revealed only under a black light
  • Micro text and guilloché patterns
  • Full variable data printing including text, barcodes & images
  • Spot UV coating or flood UV coating for card protection
  • Read & write capabilities on HiCo/LoCo magnetic stripes
  • Automated quality controls and rejection of the defective cards
  • Printing with spectacular 3D raised effects
  • Variable data printing even with 3D raised effects
  • Hexacolor printing to expand the gamut and/or spot colors (orange, blue,...)
  • 3D Raised Effect Cards
  • Spot UV Coating
  • Secure Cards with Invisible Ink
  • Cards with White Ink
  • Encode Cards (Hico & Loco)
  • 4-8 Color Plastic Cards
  • Simplified Production Chain
  • On Demand Production
  • Variable Data
  • Cost Reduction
  • Ease of Use
  • Footprint Reduction
  • Speed - 8,000 card per hour (4,000 cards/hour duplex)
  • No More Stock
