MGI to Hold Worldwide Launch of JETcard® Inkjet Card Factory at Cards Asia in Singapore

Published Monday, 21 March, 2011

Utilizing MGI’s award-winning 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 and verified).

In 2010, the JETcard was awarded the prestigious Siemens Innovation Grand Prix in recognition of MGI’s R&D achievement.

MGI’s JETcard can replace up to five different pieces of equipment traditionally used in the plastic card production chain: litho press, a collator, a lamination press, a die cutter and an encoder/personalization printer.

The JETcard is a marked evolution from traditional plastic card manufacturing due to the utilization of eco-friendly technology, saving resources, eliminating waste (inks, electricity, no plates or screens) and harmful emissions (ozone free, no solvents, no chemical waste) while reducing the overall electrical consumption compared to traditional methods. In addition, the JETcard can print on environmentally friendly paper cards, a sustainable alternative to PVC with the same standard thickness (760 µ) and made of 100% recyclable and natural materials.
