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 uses retransfer printing to produce superior dual-sided print quality, durability, reliability, and security for your badge printing. The HDP5000 Duplex features a flexible modular design with optional laminator and smart card encoding. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer offers Fargo’s high definition printing (HDP) technology to deliver the highest image quality 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 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. HDP (high definition printing) uses retransfer printer technology and is great for printing the most commonly used technology cards, such as contact and contactless smart cards, as well as clamshell proximity cards. This is the most advanced method of card printing available, using dye-sublimation technology to print sharp, 300-dpi images on the underside of HDP Film 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.

It’s counterfeit proof, which means that if a counterfeiter tries to peel the film apart in order to try 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. Conventional dye-sub printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage. Multifunction smart cards are becoming more popular with colleges, loyalty and membership programs, businesses and corporations, health care facilities, and government agencies.

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 multi-faceted encoding options will help you produce proximity cards and smart cards based on your business’s specific needs. ID Badge production is no longer confined to stand-alone stations.

It is now possible for a retail chain to distribute cards to any location over a network. An array of printers and 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.

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