The Fargo HDP5000 is the ideal PVC ID card printer for security-conscious organizations or for those printing on cards with internal technology, and this card printer kit features the essentials necessary to start a top-flight badging program.
Everything looks better with High Definition Printing™.
Colors are vibrant. Images are crisp. Quality is second to none. With the Fargo HDP5000, ID cards do more than protect your organization - they reflect its pride. HDP5000 produces ID cards with the highest image quality 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 quality that looks more like a sharp glossy photo than an ordinary ID badge. Printing on film instead of directly on the card means that the uneven surface of technology cards doesn’t compromise image quality. The HDP5000 can print up to the edge of smart chip contacts, and over-the-edge of the card.
High-quality images without the high price tag.
With the Fargo HDP5000, the price tag looks as great as the cards it produces. High Definition Printing is the most advanced method of card printing available. The HDP5000’s image quality far exceeds other models, but its cost doesn’t. No other card printer delivers High Definition images at this price point, making the HDP5000 feasible for a broad range of organizations.
Rely on it for more than good looks.
The HDP5000 is exceptionally reliable, which means less printer downtime. Because the printhead never comes in contact with card surfaces or debris, it’s never damaged in the printing process. In fact, it carries a lifetime warranty. Cards produced by High Definition Printing are inherently more durable and secure than other types of cards. They resist wear and tear by putting a durable layer of HDP Film between the card image and the outside world. They’re also tamperevident - if a counterfeiter tries to peel apart the layers, the image essentially destroys itself.
Modular design grows with your needs.
Not sure what your ID card applications will require in the future? No problem. The HDP5000 is easily upgraded to fit your needs. Start with a basic single-sided unit. Install encoding modules. Upgrade to dual-sided printing. Add lamination, or simultaneous dual-sided lamination for the ultimate in card security and durability.
Improvements you’ll see in every card.
Fargo introduced High Definition Printing in 1999, and we’ve been advancing the technology ever since. The HDP5000 is the most affordably priced HDP model ever. It’s also the fastest and most efficient, with improvements at every level. Simpler operation requires only minimal training. Cards, ribbons and overlaminates literally load in a snap via the cartridge-based system. Sharper image quality and new HDP materials deliver more impressive cards at a lower cost per card. And faster printing helps you fly through the biggest production jobs.
Add dual-sided durability and security - fast.
Applying a holographic overlaminate or holographic HDP Film to the front of an ID card improves its durability and security. An overlaminate on both sides doubles the protection. The HDP5000 laminates both sides of a card simultaneously in one efficient pass. Since the lamination module needs no card flipper, it doesn’t waste time by turning a card over and laminating it again. Saving a few seconds per card may not sound like much. But multiplied by a 5,000- or 10,000-card production run, the savings are substantial.
The right printer for every application.
High Definition Printing is the latest technology for the best looking ID cards available, making the HDP5000 a smart choice for retail stores, recreation facilities, or any organization whose brand image is paramount. It’s also right for organizations that demand more functionality from their ID cards. Colleges, loyalty and membership programs, businesses and corporations, health care facilities and government agencies are all expanding their use of multifunction smart cards. Encoding options allow configuration of the HDP5000 to produce proximity and smart cards according to specific needs. And print quality is never sacrificed; the High Definition Printing process fuses the HDP Film to the card surface, conforming to ridges and indentations of the embedded electronics in smart and prox cards so images are always sharp.
Produce High Definition cards anywhere.
Card production is no longer limited to stand-alone badging 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. The HDP5000 is the ideal choice for countless scenarios. Its Ethernet port and internal print server provide the connectivity needed for networked operations.
