Magicard Helix Re-Transfer Printer Double Sided

Re-transfer printers are the preferred method for printing on all types of embedded chip cards.  The re-transfer print method virtually eliminates print quality issues associated with direct to card printing.

The Magicard Helix is the first ever desktop card printer to feature an interactive touch-screen interface.


Visual indicators show connectivity, temperature and how many prints are remaining on all consumables. A preview screen during printing shows the exact card being personalized and its progress through the print cycle. The intuitive interface makes it easy to change settings, with additional help provided through animated video sequences.

Helix is the World’s first re-transfer printer with built-in visual security. Using an evolution of Magicard’s famous HoloKote® security feature, Helix can apply a secure watermark to each card during the re-transfer process. This feature also exploits the wavelengths and lens effect of the re-transfer film to fluoresce under UV lighting conditions.




The Magicard Helix uses a retransfer printing process, where images are first printed onto a thin film then heat transferred onto the card surface. This produces our highest resolution photo quality image, printed right over the edge of the card. By printing on to this controlled substrate, print imperfections due to irregular card surfaces or around embedded card chips are eliminated. Equipped with a high grade processing unit, Helix is powered by Magicard’s most advanced and durable print engine and features our highest capacity consumables (1000 prints) and hoppers (200 cards), making it ideal for high volume localized or even centralized issuance.

The Magicard Helix prints litho-quality cards from a compact desktop package. This versatility enables you to issue secure IDs in high volume or in small volumes for replacement or additional credentials. Its Custom HoloKote watermark feature provides an extra layer of visual security without the need for an inline lamination unit and expensive custom overlays with high MOQs. Single-sided Helix printers can be upgraded to double-sided capability with a simple electronic upgrade key.

The Magicard Helix can be equipped with a range of card encoding devices to write secure electronic data to cards at the point of issuance. Smart card encoding options include contact chip, MIFARE®, DESFire® and iClass®. Specialist high-security encoders, such as EMV accredited devices, can also be fitted for the in-line personalization of payment cards. The Helix can also be supplied with a magnetic stripe encoder built-in.
