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 can also print high-quality gift cards. 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 packed with innovative features and is perfect for technology cards with embedded electronics. This printer produces cards with the best image quality available.

The HDP5000 upgrades easily with 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 cards that will be every bit as reliable, durable, and visually distinct as you need them to be. 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 Badge Printer offers Fargos High Definition Printing (HDP) technology delivering the highest image quality that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex offers simple operation with minimal training, easy-loading cartridges for cards, ribbons, and over-laminates, and its reliability and durability are sure to lower your total cost of ownership. It also features a lifetime print head warranty and a two-year printer warranty. HDP uses re-transfer printing technology. It is ideal for printing commonly-used technology cards such as contact and contactless smart cards and clamshell proximity cards. It is the most advanced method of card printing available, using dye-sublimation technology to print crisp, 300-dpi images on the underside 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.

In the case of a counterfeiter trying to peel the film apart in an attempt to alter the card, the printed image will almost completely destroy itself.

High Definition Printing can also print up to the edges 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 perfect for this type of customization because it offers a variety of options, such as 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 confined to stand-alone stations.

A retail chain can now distribute card issuance over a network to any location. On location for a corporation or university, an array of printers/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.

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