The Fargo HDP5000 printer uses reverse transfer printing, which produces a high-quality image resisting tampering and lasting up to twice as long as a normal ID card photo. It also includes options for dual-sided printing and lamination. HDP5000 produces ID cards with the highest image quality available. The HDP5000 creates an image quality that looks like a high-quality photograph instead of a classic ID by printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP Film and then fusing the film to the card surface.
The HDP5000 can make ID/Gift cards with the highest image quality available in the marketplace. The HDP5000 can create top-quality images which are much more like a glossy photo than a simple gift card or ID badge, and it does this by printing a reverse image on the HDP film underside, and then fusing it to the card surface. The Fargo HDP5000 printer/encoder is jam-packed with features, and can reliably produce cards with high-definition image quality.
The HDP5000 easily upgrades to additional printing capabilities, as well as encoding and laminating modules. Fargo HDP5000 Dual-Sided Retransfer Printer #89640 | 89660 | 89680
The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex uses re-transfer printing technology, which is the most advanced available for card printers, to create superior dual-sided card print quality, durability, reliability, and security for badge-printing. The HDP5000 Duplex also has a versatile modular design which includes an optional smartcard encoder and laminator. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer offers Fargos High Definition Printing (HDP) technology delivering the highest image quality at a price that a broad range 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. High Definition Printing makes use of re-transfer print technology, and provides a perfect solution for printing all the most commonly used cards, for instance contact smartcards, contactless smartcards, and clamshell proximity cards. High Definition Printing is the most advanced method of card printing available, using dye-sublimation technology to print crisp, 300-dpi images on the underside of Fargo’s own HDP film.
The HDP5000 Film fuses to the surface of your printing cards and conforms to the ridges and the indentations that have been formed by embedded electronics, an extra layer of security and card durability has been developed as a result.
If any counterfeiter were to attempt to peel the film apart and alter the card, the printed image on the card would essentially cause itself to be destroyed.
High Definition Printing prints all way 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. Lots of organizations, including colleges, membership and loyalty programs, corporations and businesses, health care facilities, and government agencies, are all increasung their use of multi-function cards.
The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is perfect for this kind of printing and customization because of the many options available on the printer, including single- or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technologies. The multi-faceted encoding options give the chance to produce proximity and smart cards based on your specific and unique needs. ID Badge production is no longer only available to stand-alone stations.
For example, a retail chain can distribute card issuance over a network to any location. On a corporate campus or university, a variety of printer and encoders can be set up in a central location for high-volume production. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer can be used by practically any organization in any scenario.
Its Ethernet port and internal print server supply the connectivity needed for networked operations.
