From today, (25th September 2018), Magicard is attending the Security Essen show in Germany alongside our partner Heyden-Securit.

Unlike other events we’ve been to in the past, this won’t be just another tradeshow for us….

Security Essen marks the launch of Ultima, a ground-breaking printer which we are pleased to announce to you all and which is available for sale immediately from our top-tier partners in EMEA.

Ultima is a retransfer printer and is our most technically advanced and powerful printer to date. It is the only retransfer printer which gives users the facility to print bespoke, high-security HoloKote watermarks. The printer comes pre-loaded with ten HoloKote images and users can specify additional, custom watermarks of their logo, a word or other custom element. Magicard pioneered the HoloKote technology and Ultima will remain the only retransfer printer which can use this patented system.

Equipped with an intuitive touch-screen to simplify the user experience, again a market-first, Ultima is powered by a high-grade processing unit which facilitates the printing of up to 100 full colour, super-sharp cards per hour. The quality of Ultima’s output means one can quickly and easily identify photographs on ID cards for comparison against the holder, making Ultima the ideal solution for printing drivers’ licences, national ID cards and other cards where security is of paramount importance.


Other features:

  • The option of up to 200 cards input and output
  • Consumables capable of up to 1000 prints
  • Smart encoding options such as MIFARE® DESFire®, contact chip and more

Magicard’s Sales Director for Europe, RSA and Russia, Phil Reynold will be at Security Essen, together with Magicard’s regional sales manager for France and North Africa, Julien Terroy and the company’s regional sales manager for the Asia Pacific region, Richard Besenbruch. All of which will be presenting Ultima to Security Essen attendees at regular intervals through the week-long show.

If you’re attending Security Essen, Germany, then make your way to Hall 3 booths C108 and D109 to meet our team and learn more about the printer or, if you can’t make the show then please contact your nearest dealer for details of Ultima or any of our printers.
