In addition, large organizations with many cardholders usually use different card templates and sometimes different card types to best manage their loyalty program levels, electronic access control, logical access, and "flash-pass" requirements.
Many customer-facing companies use self-service kiosks to help facilitate the printing of their cards quickly and easily.
In line with the growing demands of self-service kiosks,
IDP has recently developed a compact multi-hopper that is designed with
a new block-like structure to be less restricted by the internal space compared to the existing SMART-51K kiosk equipment and SMART-70 multi hoppers, which has a great advantage.
What is a Compact Multi-hopper?
The multi-hopper reminds me of a Lego that I used to play with as a child because it is a small block-type cartridge that can pile up on top of each other like legos.
There are 3 different types of card cartridges and all of them are detachable.
The biggest advantage of this multi-hopper is that a user can customize the hopper by adjusting the height and it can perfectly fit various sizes of self-service kiosks as per market demands.
IDP's new compact multi hopper can be used as a card dispenser without a card printer.
Plus, customers can utilize a multi hopper in two ways - used with "SMART-51 printing engine" or any "favorable card printer".
As examples below, users considering a multi-hopper card printer within a self-service kiosk provide
a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 8 hoppers and its great flexibility and autonomy for instant card printing or for high volume issuance.
IDP's Compact Multi-Hopper offers:
• Up to 8 hoppers holding up to 300 cards each for a maximum of 2400 cards
• It is the industry's smallest size/footprint
• Opened block-type cartridges to reduce miss-loading of cards
• Reduced maintenance as a large multi-hopper system inside a kiosk will require fewer reloads
