Evolis unveils new card printer

Friday, May 29, 2009

Evolis announced the new Tattoo RW, a compact monochrome printer that can erase and print up to 500 times the same card.

The new Tattoo RW is designed to print on rewritable cards. Such cards contain a thermochromic material that makes data (text, graphics and barcodes) visible or vanish, depending on the temperature to which the card is exposed. This process can be rolled back and the same card can be erased and reprinted up to 500 times.


The Tattoo RW supports multiple applications such as loyalty programs, visitor management, transit passes, library and student IDs, and management of temporary employees.

Tattoo RW provides cards with additional encoding features such as ISO-compliant magnetic encoding and RFID. These additions are scaled to meet the requirements of loyalty and access control applications. Tattoo RW also comes with an Ethernet port to network it. Evolis offers two types of rewritable cards: a PVC card that can be printed in the two colors that make it possible to display barcodes: blue or black. [end]
