MUNICH, Germany, 16 November, 2018 – Matica Technologies AG announced its attendance at Trustech 2018, the largest global event for trust-based technologies.

Matica has listened to the changing demands of the banking sector and created a desktop embosser system, which is comparable to a mid or high-volume issuance embosser. Continuing to ensure a secure environment has remained a key driver behind the S3300e’s engineering.

Visitors to Trustech will also see Matica’s S5200LX desktop laser engraver. It will prompt significant interest considering the growing trend in card engraving for special applications with laser technology.

And what sort of special applications can the S5200LX issue?

Matica’s Global Sales Director, Luca Picardi is a guest speaker during TRUSTECH 2018, where he will first look at ‘innovation’ with reference to laser personalization for high security ID and financial cards, (29 November at 11:30 / Innovation Stage). And in his second talk, Luca will look at ‘new industry insights’, specifically: technology and legislation, exploring why the payment industry in emerging markets is experiencing a boom, and why central issuance solutions can unlock opportunities in those countries and markets, (28 November at 16:20 / Industry Insights Stage).
