HID® ELEMENT Laser Engraver
The highly versatile HID ELEMENT laser engraving system provides two laser source options to meet your specific credential program requirements.
Secure, Versatile, Laser-Sharp Personalization
The most secure credentials are highly differentiated, employing multiple visual, digital and engraved elements. These ensure the accurate identification of each individual cardholder while establishing barriers to fraud and counterfeiting.
Leveraging the HID ELEMENT laser engraving system, unique identifying data or images are engraved into the card body for tamper-proof, highly durable personalization, making forgery and manipulation virtually impossible.
Beyond standard black marking and highly defined grayscale imaging, the HID ELEMENT laser engraving system can optionally be used in conjunction with the UV ink printing system — providing the ability to combine laser with color to accommodate even the most unique
Engrave Security Into Every Card
HID ELEMENT precision laser engraving enables the etching of multi-faceted security elements into identification cards. Laser-engraved data and images are permanent and secure. Any attempts to alter engraved information will destroy the integrity of the image, and tampering will be immediately evident — lending a whole new level of security to finished credentials.
The optional camera vision system ensures accurate placement and registration of data on the card surface, and reproduction is so precise that it even allows the engraving of microtext — microscopic type that cannot be read without a loupe or magnifying glass.
HID ELEMENT precision lasers can also perform lenticular personalization to produce multiple laser images (MLI) and changeable laser images (CLI), providing additional barriers against counterfeiting attempts via desktop printers.
Because laser engraving produces raised lettering, authenticity is easily verified with the touch of a finger, making it ideal for card issuance programs that bear an elevated risk of forgery or identity misrepresentation such as voter or worker registration cards, drivers’ licenses and citizen identity permits.
