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 highest image quality available. Printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP Film and then fusing the film to the card surface allows the HDP5000 to deliver an image quality that looks more like an expensive photograph than an ID badge.

The HDP5000 produces ID/Gift cards with the most superior image quality available. By printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP film, then fusing the film to the surface of the card, the printer creates an image quality that looks more like a glossy photo than an ordinary gift card. The Fargo HDP5000 printer/encoder is perfect for technology cards with embedded electronic capabilities. It produces cards in high definition with the highest quality image available.

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 retransfer printing technology - the most advanced card printer technology available - to produce superior double-sided cards that will be every bit as reliable, durable, and visually distinct as you need them to be. The HDP5000 Duplex also has a versatile modular design which includes an optional smartcard encoder and laminator. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer features Fargos High Definition Printing (HDP) technology, which is capable of producing images of the highest quality at affordable prices.

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 retransfer printer technology and is great for printing contact and contactless smart cards, clamshell proximity cards, and other common technology cards. This printing system provides the most advanced card printing methodology available, making use of dye sublimation technology in order to print ultra-crisp 300 dpi images on the reverse side of Fargo's HDP film.

The HDP5000 Film fuses to the surface of your cards, conforms to ridges and indentations formed by embedded electronics, and provides an extra layer of card durability and security.

It’s counterfeit proof, which means that if a counterfeiter tries to peel the film apart in order to try to alter the card, the printed image essentially destroys itself.

High Definition Printing can also print right up to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers need to leave a clear space around contacts 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 Badge Printer is ideal for this level of customization thanks to options such as single or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technology. Its multifaceted encoding options will allow you to produce proximity and smart cards according to your specific needs. ID Badge production is now no longer just limited to the stand-alone type of stations.

For example, a retail chain can distribute card issuance over a network to any location. On a corporate campus or university, an array of printer/encoders can be set up in a central location for high-volume production. You can apply the Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer’s capabilities to countless scenarios.

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