Fargo HDP5000 Dual-Sided Retransfer Printer

#89640 | 89660 | 89680 The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex uses cutting-edge retransfer printing technology to produce unparalleled-quality double-sided card prints that are reliable, durable, and secure. The HDP5000 has a flexible modular design with optional laminator and smart card encoding.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer offers Fargo’s High Definition Printing (HDP) technology to deliver the highest quality images 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 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 perfect for printing the most popular technology cards, including contact and contactless smart cards, and 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 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 is essentially destroyed along with any chance of pirating the card.

High Definition Printing can also print to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers must leave clear space around contact pads 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 printer is ideal for customization because there are so many options for single- or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technology. The multifaceted encoding options make it easy for you to produce both proximity and smart cards based on your needs. ID Badge production is now no longer just limited to the stand-alone type of stations.

On a corporate campus or university, an array of printer/encoders can be set up in a central location for high-volume production. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Printer can be the perfect choice for a whole catalog of scenarios.

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