MUNICH, Germany, 16 September 2020 – Matica Fintec, a Matica Technologies company, announces today the launch of a new solution for the instant issuance of credit and debit cards.

Based on in-house solid and tested technologies, such as direct-to-card printing, embossing, and encoding modules, the S3600 is the result of decades of experience in developing financial card personalization technologies.

Manufactured in-house at Matica’s production plant in Galliate (NO), Italy, the new S3600 features multi-feeding with the option of three or six hoppers of 100 cards each. It is also equipped with built-in electronic and manual locks as standard configuration, a security feature for the inhibition of unauthorized access to cards and consumables complying with Visa® and Mastercard® security requirements and meeting PCI-DSS data security standards.

The Matica S3600 supports a wide range of secure connectivity via USB, LAN with “single wire” functionality (Smart Class Controller) or embedded PC and real-time cloud monitoring system that allows the user to monitor the production of all systems installed.
