The Fargo HDP5000 ID card printer uses reverse transfer printing, which produces a high-quality image that resists tampering and lasts up to twice as long as a normal ID card photo, with options for dual-sided printing & lamination. HDP5000 produces ID cards with the finest image quality on the market. 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 cards with the highest image quality available. By printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP Film and fusing the film to the card surface, the HDP5000 creates an image quality that resembles a sharp, glossy photograph than what is usually on an ID or gift card. 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.

The HDP5000 upgrades easily, which means you can add additional printing, laminating and encoding 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 card print quality, reliability, durability and security for your badge printing program. The key features offered by the HDP5000 Duplex include a flexible modular design that contains optional laminating and smart card encoding. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer offers Fargo’s high definition printing (HDP) technology to deliver 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 Fargo HDP5000 Duplex offers simple operation with easy-to-load consumables, minimal training required, and a high reliability and durability that will result in great savings for your organization. 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. This is the most advanced method of card printing available, utilizing dye-sublimation technology to print 300-dpi images on the other side of HDP Film developed by Fargo.

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

If a counterfeiter tries to peel the film apart in an attempt to alter the card, the printed image is essentially destroyed along with any chance of pirating the card.

High Definition Printing will 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 the above type of personalization because it features a variety of options including single- or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technologies. Its assorted encoding options make it possible for you to produce proximity and smart cards specific to your needs. ID Badge production is no longer confined to stand-alone stations.

A retail chain can distribute card issuance over a network to any of their locations. On location for a corporation or university, an array of printers/encoders can be set up in a central location for high-volume production. 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.
