The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex uses retransfer printing technology—the most advanced card printer technology available—to produce superior double-sided card print quality, reliability, durability and security for your badge printing program. The HDP5000 Duplex offers a flexible modular design with optional laminator and smart card encoding. This printer also offers High Definition Printing technology, so that it can deliver the best quality images which most organizations will be able to afford.
It is supported by a lifetime warranty on the print head and a two-year warranty on the printer itself, and the Fargo HDP5000 Duplex can be operated very easily without much training, while also including cartridges which are easy-loading, ribbons and overlaminates, and a high level of reliability which will reduce total ownership cost. 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 happens to be one of the most advanced methods of car printing available, the use of advanced dye-sublimation technology has been able to produce crisp print jobs, with 300-dpi images on the underside of HDP Films that are developed by Fargo.
The film fuses onto the surface of your cards, conforming to ridges and indentations, providing an extra layer of card durability and security.
If a counterfeiter attempts to peel the film off to modify the card, then the printed image will destroy itself.
High Definition Printing can also print right up to the edge of exposed smart card contacts. Conventional dye-sub printers must leave clear space around contact pads to avoid print head damage. Colleges, loyalty and membership programs, businesses and corporations, health care facilities and government agencies are all increasing their use of multifunction smart cards.

On a corporate campus or university, you can set up an array of printer/encoders in a central location to enable high-volume production. The Fargo HDP5000 Duplex printer is a great choice for nearly infinite scenarios.
