With its 500-card capacity input and output hoppers, the ImageMaster D-40 gives you the flexibility to keep pace with the demands of a number of machines. Plus, you can control the number of cards released to the output hopper to reduce production cycle times.
  • Efficient printing
    The NBS D-40 printer features a parallel card processing capability that allows for a card to be encoded at the same time that another is being printed, maximizing your production efficiency. Additionally, the ImageMaster D-40 printer is equipped with IP and Ethernet connectivity - eliminating the need for print servers and interface boxes.
  • Cost-effective supplies
    NBS offers large capacity monochrome ribbons in a full range of colors. These high-yield ribbons increase your efficiency by reducing the number of times printing supplies need to be replaced. The NBS D-40 printer also helps you save on the cost of ribbons by using only the minimum needed for your card printing.

Plus, the NBS D-40 printer offers the optional Smartsys software; a robust, easy-to-use machine control and card production application.
