NBS Technologies annouces its latest range of Javelin card printers - the single-feed Javelin J200i and the auto-feed Javelin J230i. Printers with professional performance for the perfect price.

NBS Technologies Inc., a leading provider of hardware and software solutions for card personalization, secure ID, EMV® compliance/migration, smart card and semiconductor equipment solutions for financial institutions, governments, and corporations worldwide, today announced the introduction of its latest Javelin desktop card printer range – the Javelin J200i and Javelin J230i card printers.

This new Javelin card printer range now consists of just two base models: J200i (for single card feeding) and J230i (with input hopper and output stacker). Both models will print either in colour or monochrome, and a flipper is available for dual-side printing. These new Javelin printers are reliable, compact and easy-to-use, delivering outstanding performance at a great price. Boasting a full range of encoding options, they are an economic, reliable solution for almost every card printing and encoding need. Users can pick and choose which configuration fits their requirement - select card feeder requirements (single or hopper style), single or dual-sided printing, colour/monochrome, encoding requirements, and users have a virtually customized solution that meets their specific card printing requirement.

  • Small footprint easily fits into a wide range of locations
  • Conveniently fits on the desktop or under the counter

“NBS continues to rationalize our product lines to ensure that we consistently provide products and services that meet the needs of our customers. We believe our transition to a Javelin printer line that has only two base models but a wide selection of features and options, gives our users the flexibility and functionality to meet any desktop card printing requirements. Simplification of our offering has also enabled us to provide this new line of printers to the marketplace at a price point that is highly competitive”. says General Manager, Philip Barton.

NBS is launching this new product line into the North American market in October 2010 but is already enjoying this Javelin card printer line’s success throughout European/Asian and Pacific Rim markets. NBS believes that this new line of printers will offer a competitive solution for applications such as casino/gaming & leisure, access control applications, membership and loyalty card, etc. The Javelin J230i also offers a unique solution for kiosk/self-service style of applications.

“Our Javelin card printers have been a staple of the NBS European business for over 13 years and we now feel that with this newly streamlined product offering, we can provide our North American clientele with the product and price mix that is attractive from a functionality and budgetary standpoint. We have enjoyed great success with the rollout of this new line within European and Asian markets, so it’s very easy to assure our customers that these new Javelin card printers are already field-proven.” comments Philip Barton.

The new Javelin card printer line is available immediately for order.
