The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex works with high-quality, retransfer printing technology - it is the most advanced card printing technology in the industry - it makes superior, high-quality double-sided card printing that’s both durable and reliable, and great for overall security for your badge printed program. The HDP5000 Duplex offers 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 Fargo HDP5000 Duplex offers easy operation, easy-loading cartridges for cards, ribbons and over-laminates, and a high reliability and durability that will lower your overall cost of use and ownership. HDP (high definition printing) uses retransfer printer technology and is great for printing the most commonly used technology cards, such as contact and contactless smart cards, as well as clamshell proximity cards. This is the most advanced method of card printing available, utilizing dye-sublimation technology to print 300-dpi images on the other side of HDP Film developed by Fargo.

The HDP5000 Film fuses to the surface of your cards, conforming to ridges and indentations formed by embedded electronics, and provides an extra layer of card durability and security.

If any counterfeiter were to attempt to peel the film apart and alter the card, the printed image on the card would essentially cause itself to be destroyed.

High Definition Printing can also print right up 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, loyalty and membership programs, businesses and corporations, health care facilities and government agencies are all increasing their use of multifunction smart cards.

The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex Badge Printer is perfect for this type of customization because it offers so many options including single- or dual-sided lamination and card encoding technologies. The multifaceted encoding options make it easy for you to produce both proximity and smart cards based on your needs. ID Badge production is no longer only available to stand-alone stations.

A retail chain, for example, can distribute card issuance over a network to any location. On a corporate campus or university, an array of printer/encoders can be set up in a central location for high-volume production. You can apply the Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer’s capabilities to countless scenarios.
