FARGO 5000 ID Card Printer 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.

By printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP Film, then fusing the film to the card surface, the HDP5000 creates an image quality that looks more like a sharp glossy photo than an ordinary ID badge. The HDP5000 produces ID/Gift cards with the highest image quality available. By printing the image on the underside of the film and fusing it to the card’s surface, the printer creates an image quality that looks more like a glossy photo than an ordinary badge or gift card.

The Fargo HDP5000 printer and encoder offers a lot of great features that are perfect for technology cards with embedded electronics. It also reliably creates high-definition cards with great quality images.

The HDP5000 is easily upgradeable with additional printing, laminating and encoding modules.

Fargo HDP5000 Dual-Sided Retransfer Printer

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer features Fargo’s High Definition Printing (HDP) technology and offers top-quality products at a price that is affordable for many if not most businesses and organizations. Backed by a lifetime print head warranty and a two-year printer warranty, the Fargo HDP5000 Duplex offers simple operation with minimal training, easy-loading cartridges for cards, ribbons and over-laminates, and a high reliability and durability that will lower your total cost of ownership. High Definition Printing uses cutting-edge retransfer printer technology, perfect for printing common technology cards, such as contact and contactless smart cards 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 cards, adhering to ridges and indentations formed by embedded electronics, and offers an extra layer of card durability and security. If a counterfeiter attempts to peel the film off to modify the card, then the printed image will destroy itself.

High Definition Printing prints all way up to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Traditional dye-sub printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage. Many organizations are expanding their use of multi-function smartcards, for instance loyalty and membership programs, universities, corporations, government agencies, and healthcare facilities.

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 multifaceted encoding options make it easy for you to produce both proximity and smart cards based on your needs. You no longer need to rely on stand-alone stations to produce ID cards and badges.

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 countless scenarios.

The Ethernet port along with its internal print server offer all the connectivity which is necessary for operations which are to be networked.
