  • Ability to retract uncollected cards

KC Prime and KC Max each have an integrated card feeder:

Add a lighted bezel to optimise the user experience:

  • With its LEDs, the Evolis lighted bezel visually alerts the user of a card entry or exit,
  • Its optional anti-insertion system prevents card entry. The optional anti-insertion system prevents cards from being inserted, so that the bezel can only be used for card output.

Our self-service kiosk printers are fully modular:

  • single or dual sided cards printing
  • encoders for magnetic stripe or for contact and contactless smart cards.

In order to limit and facilitate everyday maintenance operations, our modules offer remote notifications on the status of the printer and consumables such as the card or ribbon level alert. Thanks to the free Evolis Premium SDK, you can integrate our printers into your own application and monitor them over a local network or the cloud.
