Fargo HDP5600 Description
Fargo's HDP5600 configurable printer yields high definition ID cards with industry leading image quality. Equipped with retransfer technology and accepting of various integration features, the HDP5600 is a cost-effective, reliable solution for your printing and encoding needs. This highly secure, versatile solution is ideal for industries such as Government, Healthcare, Corporations, and Universities
- High Resolution printing:
The Fargo HDP5600 Printer is available in both 300DPI & 600DPI (23.6 dots/mm) printing resolution. This superior resolution was expertly designed by Fargo to meet the requirements of printing high quality ID cards. As a result, the HDP5600 produces a sharp, photographic high definition image, to reflect the value of your brand. With 600DPI, images and text are crisp and colors are brilliantly vibrant. In addition, the resin printing capabilities of the 600DPI resolution allow for precise printing of small text and crisply defined barcodes. As if that wasn't enough, the built-in Color Assist tool aids in matching up to 16.7 million colors for any company logo or graphic ensuring an exact color profile match.
- Retransfer Technology
The HDP5600 features fifth-generation retransfer technology of High Definition Printing. This innovative solution combines advanced, integrated features with the proven reliability and durability of HDP. With retransfer printing, the printhead never comes in contact with the ID cards, but rather, the card images are printed on a clear, retransfer film that is fused to the card surface. As a result of this process, over-the-edge, or full-bleed, printing is possible. In addition, retransfer printers are capable of printing on uneven card surfaces such as smart cards, proximity cards, pre-punched cards, and key tag cards. Retransfer technology is ideal for print jobs that require the printing of high quality, crisp images and logos. When combined with the 600DPI printing resolution option, Fargo's HDP5600 retransfer printer produces state-of-the-art, photographic quality credentials.
- Enhanced physical security & durability:
Retransfer printing is inherently more secure and durable than other forms of printing due to the nature of the retransfer process. In the event that a counterfeiter attempts to peel apart the layers of the card, the image will be destroyed. What's more - the retransfer (HDP) film itself adds an additional layer of protection between the card image and the surrounding environment. Retransfer ribbons are available with a holographic mark known as High-Secure Design which further increases security by reducing the ability to replicate cards. With the option of 600DPI printing resolution, the Fargo HDP5600 printer also allows you to print a variety of security features such as fine text and characters.
- Flexible Modular Design:
The HDP5600 was strategically designed as a fully customizable printer to suit the individual needs of users. Each component of the system is known as a "module." If you would like to add an additional feature at any point, such as dual sided printing, simply purchase the appropriate module and attach it to your existing system. Various field upgradable modules are available, including dual sided printer (flipper module), single and dual sided lamination, magnetic and smart card encoding, and wifi connectivity. Whatever your needs may be down the road, this system will meet you there.
- Flexible and Secure Supplies:
The HDP5600 can be loaded with a variety of cards, ribbons, films, and laminates to suit your needs for card security and durability. The HDP5600 supports CR80 cards in a thickness between 30 Mil and 50 Mil. Aside from the cards, this Fargo printer accepts standard retransfer film, high-durability retransfer film, or holographic retransfer film. While high-durability retransfer film is three times tougher than standard films, holographic retransfer film features a high-secure orbit hologram design for increased card security. When it comes to ribbons, all standard monochrome and color formats are compatible with Fargo's HDP5600, as well as ribbons with increased security panels such as UV fluorescent dye.
- High Productivity:
Clearly designed with productivity in mind, the HDP5600 printer is capable of printing at speeds of up to 150 cards per hour. The 200 card output hopper and upgradable input hopper result in fewer trips to the printer in order to load supplies and remove cards. Retransfer technology is also less susceptible to damage from card imperfections, significantly reducing down time throughout the life of your printer. Fargo's HDP5600 3 year manufacturer warranty and lifetime printhead warranty ensure your system will be up and running when you need it.
- Optional Dual Sided Printing:
With the HDP5600 printer, you have the option to select a field upgradable flipper module in order to add dual-sided printing at any point in the future. The extra space resulting from dual-sided printing is often used for additional cardholder information, barcodes, and contact information for lost cards. Some users duplicate card information from the front onto the back so that the information is always visible, regardless of whether the card flips over. Whatever your needs may be, you'll have the extra space available with dual-sided printing.
- Optional Encoding:
With Fargo's HDP5600, you no longer need different machines for encoding and printing your cards. Instead, the HDP5600 printer has the capability to be upgraded with a variety of encoder modules. Additionally, any of the smart card and proximity card encoders can be combined with the magnetic stripe encoder. Available encoding options include:
- ISO Magnetic Stripe Encoder: Capable of encoding 2 and 3 track magnetic stripe cards
- Omnikey Cardman 5121: For encoding iClass, MIFARE, and DESFire cards
- Omnikey Cardman 5125: For reading HID Proximity cards
- Omnikey Cardman 5127: For encoding iClass, MIFARE, DESFire and HID Proximity card formats
- Optional Lamination:
Lamination modules for both single-sided lamination as well as dual-sided lamination are available for the HDP5600. Lamination is available in a variety of beneficial materials including standard laminates for increased durability, UV resistant laminates for increased fade resistance, and holographic laminates for added security. Each type of laminate is also available in special configurations for smart card and magnetic stripe cards.
