FARGO 5000 ID Card Printer The Fargo HDP5000 ID card printer utilizes reverse transfer printing, producing high-quality images that resists tampering and last twice as long as a traditional ID card photo, with options for dual-sided printing and lamination.

High Definition Printing uses retransfer printer technology and is ideal for printing the most commonly used technology cards, including contact and contactless smart cards, and clamshell proximity 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 onto the surface of your cards, conforming to ridges and indentations, providing 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 essentially destroys itself. High Definition Printing can also print right up to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Most conventional dye sublimation printers have to leave a clear space by contact pads in order to prevent damage to the print head.

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 multifaceted encoding options make it easy for you to produce both proximity and smart cards based on your needs.

You no longer have to limit your ID Badge production to stand-alone stations. For example, a retail chain can distribute card issuance over a network to multiple locations. On a corporate campus or university, you can set up an array of printer/encoders in a central location to enable high-volume production.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Printer can be the perfect choice for a whole catalog of scenarios.

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