Fargo HDP5000 Dual Sided Retransfer ID Card Printer Description

The Fargo HDP 5000 delivers an affordable and easy-to-use dual-sided ID card printing solution. In addition to saving a little on the budget, you’ll get vibrant high-definition cards that live up to the branding and imaging you desire.

Superior Print Quality

While certainly being affordable, the HDP5000 didn’t skimp on the quality of the production process that delivers elite quality print for dual-side cards. This fine-tuned process takes a reverse image and prints it on the underside of HDP Film before fusing the film to the surface on either side. The result is a vibrant image that pops. In addition the HDP5000 can print right up the edge of smart chips as well as over the edge of the card for a complete image.

Dependable and Reliable

When printing dual-sided cards, your printer endures a heavy workload and only a printer that can keep up without damaging itself will do. That’s why the HDP5000 was engineered to ensure minimal downtime and maximum durability. Because the printhead never comes into contact with the card surface, the risk of collecting debris or inflicting damage on itself is minimized. The HDP5000 printhead can handle the workload that dual-sided card printing requires. That’s why it brings a lifetime warranty to the table with confidence.

Elite Dual-Side Print Speeds

The HDP5000 has been updated which results in dual-side card print speeds that can produce up to 90 cards per hour (YMCKK with transfer.)

World Class Security

With the understanding that the security of your employees and intellectual property matters, the HDP5000 offers a tamper-evident layer of HDP film between the card image and the world around it on both sides. That means if someone tries to peel apart the layers for the purpose of counterfeiting, the image basically destroys itself. Meanwhile, it also protects the image from daily wear and tear.

Efficient, Affordable, and Easy-To-Use

The HDP5000 comes ready to operate with little technical know how required. The cards and ribbons load in a snap via the cartridge based system which makes operating a simple task. Not to mention, as one of the most affordably priced reverse transfer printers available, the economics make this printer an easy win for organizations with tighter budgets in need of a dual-sided printing solution. Meanwhile, you’ll get sharp images and fast printing that rivals more expensive printers in the industry.

Peace of Mind an Innovative Warranty

Any who purchase the Fargo HDP5000 Dual-Sided Printer will not only get an industry-leading 3-year warranty, but you’ll get one year of free printer loaner support giving you the peace of mind that you’ll never be down a printer when you need it most.
