Zebra Technologies Corporation, announces the Zebra ZXP Series 8™, a revolutionary re-transfer printer that offers a host of options for smart card encoding and networking making it ideal for such applications as high security ID cards, driver’s licenses, gift cards and financial cards. The Zebra ZXP Series 8 card printer produces photo-quality cards at more than 2x the speed of other re-transfer printers currently on the market.

Unlike its counterparts, the ZXP Series 8 printer delivers photo quality, over-the-edge, high speed printing on many different types of cards, including those with uneven surfaces such as smart cards, polycarbonate cards for security applications, and biopolymer cards. The printer is available in single and dual-sided printing configurations with a full portfolio of magnetic encoding, smart card encoding, single and dual-sided lamination, and connectivity options.

“Industry adoption of retransfer printing has been slow, in part, because of slow print speeds and high costs,” said Ram Ramaprasad, director of product management for Zebra Technologies. “Zebra developed the ZXP Series 8 printer to respond to the industry’s need for an on-demand retransfer printer capable of delivering higher print speeds at lower costs without sacrificing the image quality. Zebra also developed the ZMotif™ software platform, to make application integration easier than ever.”

Designed to significantly improve enterprise scalability and reliability, a XML-based software development kit is available to support a broad array of features and technologies, making it easier and faster to integrate the ZXP Series 8 retransfer printer with host of enterprise applications.
