The HDP5000 produces ID/Gift cards with the highest image quality available. The HDP5000 can create top-quality images which are much more like a glossy photo than a simple gift card or ID badge, and it does this by printing a reverse image on the HDP film underside, and then fusing it to the card surface. The Fargo HDP5000 printer/encoder is idea for printing cards with embedded technology and images that need to be of the highest quality.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex uses retransfer printing technology - the most cutting-edge technology available - to create high quality, reliable and durable double-sided card prints for your badge printing needs. The HDP5000 Duplex offers a flexible modular design with optional laminator and smart card encoding. This printer also offers High Definition Printing technology, so that it can deliver the best quality images which most organizations will be able to afford.

Backed by a lifetime print head warranty and a two-year printer warranty, with the Fargo HDP5000 Duplex, you can be up and running with minimal training, enjoy easy-loading cartridges for cards, ribbons and over-laminates, and own a system with high reliability and durability that pays for itself over time. 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. 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 cards and conforms to any indentations and ridges formed by embedded electronics to create an extra layer of 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 up to the edges of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage. Colleges, loyalty and membership programs, businesses and corporations, health care facilities and government agencies are all expanding their use of multi-function smart cards.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer is ideal for this level of customization thanks to options such as single or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technology. Its assorted encoding options make it possible for you to produce proximity and smart cards specific to your needs. Producing ID badges is no longer confined to standalone stations.

For example, a retail chain can produce cards from any of their locations. An array of printers and encoders can be set up in a central location for high-volume production. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is the ideal choice for countless scenarios.

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