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 best image quality in the industry. HDP5000 is capable of creating an image quality approximating a glossy photo, by printing a reverse image on the backside of HDP film, and fusing that film right onto a plastic card surface.

This printer produces plastic cards with the most superior technology available. By printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP Film and fusing the film to the card surface, the HDP5000 creates an image quality that resembles a sharp, glossy photograph than what is usually on an ID or gift card. The Fargo HDP5000 printer/encoder is feature-packed, which makes it perfect for technology cards with embedded electronics, because it reliably produces cards in High Definition with the highest image quality available.

The HDP5000 upgrades easily, which means you can add 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 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 and provides the highest image quality available at reasonable prices that are affordable by a wide range of organizations.

High Definition Printing uses retransfer printer technology and is perfect for printing common technology cards, including 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 printing cards and conforms to the ridges and the indentations that have been formed by embedded electronics, an extra layer of security and card durability has been developed as a result.

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 always leave clear space around contact pads to avoid any damage to the print head. 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 Badge Printer is ideal for this type of customization because of the many options provided, including single- or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technologies.
