Fargo HDP5000 ID Card Printer

Unleash the potential of smart cards.

Access control. Financial transactions. Biometric identification. Medical records management. Your ID card may hang at the end of a lanyard, but that's not where its potential ends. Government agencies, large corporations and financial institutions are all tapping into the power of ID card technology, from proximity cards to multifunction smart cards. These card-based applications demand more capable, durable and secure ID cards than ever before. That means prox and smart cards produced in high definition by the Fargo HDP5000 High Definition Card Printer/Encoder.

Improvements you’ll see in every card.

Fargo introduced High Definition Printing™ (HDP®) technology in 1999, and we’ve been advancing the technology ever since. It produces High Definition cards that give you outstanding print quality over embedded electronics, plus high durability and security - the ideal way to produce prox and smart cards. The HDP5000 printer/encoder is our fastest, most efficient HDP model ever, with improvements at every level. Simpler operation requires only minimal training. Cards, ribbons and overlaminates now come in cartridges that literally load in a snap. 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 has 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.
