FARGO 5000 ID Card Printer The Fargo HDP5000 ID card printer uses reverse transfer printing, which produces a high-quality tamper-resistant card that lasts twice as long as a typical credit card, with options for dual-sided printing and lamination. HDP5000 can produce ID cards with top quality graphics.

By printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP Film, then fusing the film to the card surface, the HDP5000 creates an image that has the quality of a sharp glossy photo rather than a typical, blurry ID badge photo. The HDP5000 produces ID/Gift 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 or Gift card.

The Fargo HDP5000 printer/encoder is perfect for technology cards with embedded electronic capabilities. It produces cards in high definition with the highest quality image 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 makes use of re-transfer printing technology, which is the most modern and advanced technology currently available, so it can create outstanding double-sided plastic cards, while ensuring top quality, durability, and reliability, and security for printing all your ID badges. The HDP5000 Duplex features a flexible modular design with optional laminator 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. Backed by a lifetime print head warranty and a two-year printer warranty, the Fargo HDP5000 Duplex offers easy operation, easy-loading cartridges for cards, ribbons and over-laminates, and a high reliability and durability that will lower your overall cost of use and ownership. 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.

It is the most advanced technology available for card printing, using dye sublimation to produce 300 dpi images on the underside of the film developed by Fargo. The HDP5000 Film fuses to the surface of your cards, conforms to ridges and indentations formed by embedded electronics, and provides an extra layer of card durability and security. If any counterfeiter were to attempt to peel the film apart and alter the card, the printed image on the card would essentially cause itself to be destroyed.

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, loyalty and membership programs, businesses and corporations, health care facilities 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. ID Badge production is no longer limited to stand-alone stations.

For example, a retail chain can distribute card issuance over a network to multiple 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 perfect choice for a lot of different scenarios.

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