Nisca PR5310 Printer Details

If you want reliability, precise image quality, user- and environmental-friendliness, purchase the Nisca PR5310 card printer dual-sided.

  • Achieve high quality prints
    Nisca printers' unmatched 24-bit image quality allows you to print 2 point font text on your card - legibly! Plus, the color density can be adjusted to allow you to control the color quality of your cards.

  • Maintain and use your printer with ease
    The Nisca PR5310 dual-sided printer is extremely user-friendly, and offers features such as automatic cleaning, the industry's fist ribbon cassette, quick-change printhead and a simple-to-read and use two-line LCD display. It also sports a small footprint (because of its vertical print path) - allowing it to be stationed on a cramped workstation surface.

    Use a Nisca YMCFK ribbon to add UV card security features to your cards. This allows you to print data (i.e., printer's serial number, model number, print date, etc.) on your cards that is only visible with UV light. UV features are controlled form the printer driver.

  • Be kind to the environment
    The PR5310 card printer is your environmentally-friendly card printer choice. Nisca card printers meet the advanced Japanese and European non-lead Restrictions of the Use of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) product requirements, and are ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) certified.

Customize your printer to your needs with:

  • Card encoding - Optional
    The Nisca PR5310 printer is equipped to handle your RFID and IC contact encoding needs. These encoding options are available upon ordering your printer, but can also be added down the road - as your needs grow.

  • Lamination - Optional
    Attach up to 2 Nisca PR5302 lamination units to your Nisca PR5310. Lamination not only provides durability to your ID card - it also combats card counterfeiting and duplication. The lamination module(s) is available upon ordering your PR5310, but it is field-upgradeable as well.

  • Extended warranty and printer loaner plans - Optional
    ID Zone offers extended warranty plans with satisfaction-guaranteed service handled by our in-house, knowledgeable technical support team. Our extended warranty plans include support via a toll-free number or live chat, total parts replacement plus labor, and fast turn-around on printer repairs. In the event your printer needs to be sent to us for repair, our loaner plans help ensure your card printing can continue. With printer loaner coverage, we'll send you a loaner printer to use while yours is in for repair.
