Fargo HDP5000 Single-Sided Printer

  • High-definition retransfer printing (HDP)
    Fargo HDP printers use retransfer technology. Retransfer (also known as “reverse transfer”) is a card printing method that produces rich, vibrant, saturated color on cards. Direct-to-card printers print images directly onto the surface of the card which can affect image quality and even cause printhead damage if you are using cards that have smart chips or embedded antennas and circuits. In contrast, retransfer printers print images on retransfer film that is then fused to your card via heat and pressure, producing flawless printing on any surface.

    HDP retransfer film provides an additional benefit of adding durability and protection to your cards. It acts as a buffer from everyday wear and tear. Plus it's highly tamper-evident; if a counterfeiter attempts to peel apart the layers, the image will be destroyed.

  • Intuitive user-interface
    The HDP5000 single-sided printer provides easy-to-understand status messages and instructions via its SmartScreen LCD panel with multiple language options.

  • Built-in Ethernet connectivity
    Your card issuance application does not have to be limited to a stand-alone badging station. Operate your card printing and encoding application safely and seamlessly on a single printer or over your network with the HDP5000 single-sided printer's built-in USB and Ethernet connectivity and internal print server.

  • Easy-to-use secure supplies
    The Fargo HDP5000 89600 printer is easy to operate and maintain. Cards, ribbons and lamination are cartridge-based, allowing for snap-in replacement and elimination of torn, wasted materials. Printer cleaning is just as worry-free. Fargo includes a new cleaning roller with each ribbon purchase, making it easy to replace the roller each time you load a new ribbon. For added data security, the Fargo HDP5000 89600 offers AES256 data encryption and resin ribbon erase.

  • Optional dual-sided printing (field-upgradeable)
    Duplex printing allows for more space for additional card holder information or security features. The modular design of the HDP5000 allows you to upgrade to dual-sided printing any time! View the HDP5000 Dual-Sided System.

  • Optional encoding
    Save substantial time printing and encoding your cards in one pass. The modular design of the HDP5000 allows you to add encoding any time!

  • Optional card hoppers
    Decrease costly down time and increase efficiency by adding a 200-card dual input hopper or a 200-card single input hopper cartridge with lock to your Fargo 89600. The modular design of the HDP5000 allows you to add additional hoppers any time!

  • Optional lamination
    Looking for an additional layer of durability and security? Overlaminates provide tamper-proof, secure cards resistant to forgery. The modular design of the HDP5000 allows you to add lamination any time! View the HDP5000 Single-Sided ID Card System & Laminator.
