We also put them to use in our own printed plastic card bureau (they’re that good!) and our customers love how great the printed image is card after card.
The IDP 51 series is the newest of the IDP SMART line. The SMART 51 family has taken what made IDPs longest running printer line, series 50, vastly successful and improved it.
Enhancements to the SMART 51 include metal bearings and internals, an easier to use CPU, and user-friendly design similar to the SMART-70.
The new SMART-51 offers an upgrade path from single side printing (51S), to dual side printing (51D), and dual side printing with lamination (51L).
The SMART-51L also uses patented IDPs Direct Lamination process which is the industry’s first adoption of direct lamination technology. This process shrinks heat-up time to just 8 seconds, saves energy, and improves the adherence of the laminate to the card.
