The printer has options for dual-sided printing as well as lamination. The Fargo HDP5000 prints ID cards with the highest image quality available. By printing a reverse image on the underside of HDP Film and fusing the film to the card surface, the HDP5000 can create an image that looks more like a glossy high-quality photograph than what you would normally see on an ID card.

This printer produces plastic cards with the most superior technology 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 that has the quality of a sharp glossy photo rather than a typical, gift card. The Fargo HDP5000 printer/encoder is feature packed! It’s perfect for technology cards with embedded electronics, and it reliably produces high-definition cards with the highest image quality 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 technology - the most advanced card printer technology available - to produce superior double-sided card print quality, reliability, durability and security for your badge printing program. 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 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 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 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.

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 dye sublimation 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 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 assorted encoding options make it possible for you to create proximity and smart cards based on your unique needs. You no longer have to limit your ID Badge production to stand-alone stations.

For example, a retail chain can distribute card issuance over a network to any location. On a university or a corporate campus, it's possible to set up an array of printer/encoders at some centralized location in order to achieve high volume production. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is a great choice for nearly infinite scenarios.

Its internal print server and its Ethernet ports make connectivity available for networked operations as needed
