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 printer provides simple operation with minimal training required, easy-loading cartridges, and a high level of reliability and durability that will lower ownership cost. High-definition printing uses re-transfer printer technology. It is ideal for printing the most common technology used in cards, including contact and contactless smart cards as well as clamshell proximity cards. It is the most advanced card printing method available, using dye-sublimation to print 300 dpi images on the underside 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.

In the case of a counterfeiter trying to peel the film apart in an attempt to alter the card, the printed image will almost completely destroy itself.

High Definition Printing can also print to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional types of dye-sub printers need to leave a clear space around the contact pads to prevent damages from being caused to the print head. Colleges, membership programs, businesses, health care facilities and government agencies are all adopting multifunction smart cards.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer is perfect for this type of customization because it offers a variety of options, such as single- or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technologies. The multi-faceted encoding options will help you produce proximity cards and smart cards based on your business’s specific needs. Producing ID badges is no longer confined to standalone stations.

For example, a retail chain can produce cards from any of their locations. On a corporate campus or university, a variety of printer 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 provide the connectivity needed for networked operations.
