The Fargo HDP5000 ID card printer uses reverse transfer printing, producing a top-quality image that resists tampering and lasts twice as long as a normal ID card photo. This printer also features options for dual-sided printing & lamination. HDP5000 prints ID cards with the best image quality on the market. HDP5000 is capable of creating an image quality approximating a glossy photo, by printing a reverse image on the backside of HDP film, and fusing that film right onto a plastic card surface.

The HDP5000 produces ID/Gift cards with the highest image quality on the market today. 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 idea for printing cards with embedded technology and images that need to be of the highest quality.

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 uses retransfer printing technology - the most cutting-edge technology available - to create high quality, reliable and durable double-sided card prints for your badge printing needs. The HDP5000 Duplex offers a flexible modular design with optional laminator and smart card encoding. 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.

It is supported by a lifetime warranty on the print head and a two-year warranty on the printer itself, and the Fargo HDP5000 Duplex can be operated very easily without much training, while also including cartridges which are easy-loading, ribbons and overlaminates, and a high level of reliability which will reduce total ownership cost. 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 happens to be one of the most advanced methods of car printing available, the use of advanced dye-sublimation technology has been able to produce crisp print jobs, with 300-dpi images on the underside of HDP Films that are developed by Fargo.

The film fuses to the surface of the cards, including conforming to ridges and indentations created by embedded electronics, providing an extra layer of security and durability.

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

High Definition Printing prints all way 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. Health care facilities, businesses and corporations, loyalty and membership programs, colleges, and government agencies are all increasing their use of multifunction smart cards.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is ideal for customization because there are so many options for 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. Producing ID badges is no longer confined to standalone stations.

For example, a retail chain store can now distribute and issue cards through a network to any location necessary. A wide array of printers or encoders can be set up at a central location to produce high-volume print jobs at places such as universities or corporate campuses. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is perfect for numerous scenarios.

Its internal print server and its Ethernet ports make connectivity available for networked operations as needed
