  • Loyalty cards
  • Transit passes
  • Event badges

How the Evolis Quantum Increases productivity

Thanks to its feed tray and stacker with a capacity of 500 cards each, the Evolis Quantum printer can deliver more than 1000 cards per hour in monochrome and more than 150 cards in color. With the reversible encoding module that is independent of the print module, the cards are encoded and printed in a single pass.

Ease of use with the Evolis Quantum

Evolis Quantum was designed to simplify and speed up everyday operation and maintenance:

  • Load and retrieve the cards without removing the storage trays (on unlocked version)
  • Check the card level at a glance
  • LCD display showing printer status and consumable levels.

Economic solution

Evolis Quantum can handle large volumes of cards with very high print quality, providing a very economical alternative to industrial card printers. You can produce your cards yourself instead of having to go to an outside provider.

Multiple encoding

The printer comes standard with a removable encoding module for combined encoding of magnetic stripes, contact smart cards and contactless cards. Quantum can be customized on-site to meet your specific needs as they evolve.

Quantum is also available in a secure version

The Evolis Quantum has an optional central locking feature to protect access to consumables (cards and ribbon) and to the encoding module, to make your card issuance system safe and secure.

Lasting investment

Evolis Quantum’s components, including its metal frame, were selected to ensure durability and reliability over time. The sealed cover, as well as the cleaning process, effectively protect against
dust and dirt. Thanks to Quantum’s top-quality design, you can be sure that your investment will last.

Peace of mind guaranteed

With our standard warranty covering 500,000 insertions the first year and our optional warranty extensions, you don’t have to worry about a thing.
