The Fargo HDP5000 ID card printer has reversed transfer printing capabilities known to create a high-quality image that can resist tampering, all while lasting twice long as normal ID photo cards, options are also available for dual-sided lamination and printing. HDP5000 produces ID cards with the finest image quality on the market. By printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP Film and fusing the film to the card surface, the HDP5000 can create an image that looks more like a glossy high-quality photograph than what you would normally see on an ID card.

The HDP5000 produces ID/Gift cards with the highest image quality available. When users print a reverse image on the underside of the HDP Film, after fusing the film to the card’s surface, the HDP5000 then makes the image quality appear more like a sharp glossy photo, even more so than the ordinary ID badges or Gift cards. The Fargo HDP5000 printer/encoder is feature packed! It’s perfect for technology cards with embedded electronics, and it reliably produces high-definition cards with the highest image quality available.

It's very easy to upgrade the HDP5000 with modules for additional printing, encoding, and laminating. Fargo HDP5000 Dual-Sided Retransfer Printer #89640 | 89660 | 89680

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex makes use of re-transfer printing technology, which is the most modern and advanced technology currently available, so it can create outstanding double-sided plastic cards, while ensuring top quality, durability, and reliability, and security for printing all your ID badges. The HDP5000 Duplex features a flexible modular design with options for a laminator and smart card encoding. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer offers Fargo’s high-definition printing technology, providing the highest image quality at a price that lots of organizations can afford.

Backed by a lifetime print head warranty and a two-year printer warranty, the printer provides simple operation with minimal training required, easy-loading cartridges, and a high level of reliability and durability that will lower ownership cost. HDP (high definition printing) uses retransfer printer technology and is great for printing the most commonly used technology cards, such as contact and contactless smart cards, as well as clamshell proximity cards. It is the most advanced method of card printing available, using dye-sublimation technology to print crisp, 300-dpi images on the underside of HDP Film developed by Fargo.

The HDP5000 Film adheres to the surface of the cards and conforms to any ridges or indentations formed by embedded electronics and adds an extra layer of strength and security.

If the film is peeled apart in an attempt to alter the card, the printed image will almost completely destroy itself.

High Definition Printing can also print right up to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage. Colleges, membership programs, businesses, health care facilities and government agencies are all adopting multifunction smart cards.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer is ideal for this type of customization because of the many options provided, including single- or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technologies. The multi-faceted encoding options will help you produce proximity cards and smart cards based on your business’s specific needs. Producing ID badges is no longer confined to standalone stations.

A retail chain can now distribute card issuance over a network to any location. Printers and encoders can even be set up on college campuses for convenient high-volume production of ID cards that students can pick up on location. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is the ideal choice for numerous scenarios and needs.

Its Ethernet port and internal print server supply the connectivity needed for networked operations.
