Fargo 89600 HDP5000 Single Sided
ID cards printed on Fargo HDP5000 Card Printer/Encoders do more than protect your organization, they reflect the value you place on your brand. 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.
The 89600 HDP5000 is one of the most affordably priced reverse transfer printers on the market today. It’s also the most efficient, with improvements at every level. Simple operation requires only minimal training. Cards, ribbons and overlaminates literally load in a snap via the cartridge based system. Sharp image quality and new half-panel ribbons make High Definition Printing even more economical. Fast printing, combined with a dual card input hopper for multiple card types help you fly through the biggest production jobs.
Reverse Image Transfer (Re-Transfer) Card Printing Technology
This ID card printer utilizes “Re-Transfer” printing technology, which diffuses ink (in the form of a ribbon) to a dye receptive film known as a “transfer film”. Once all necessary colors have been applied to the transfer film, it is then fused to a blank PVC or Composite card material. This two-step printing process allows for a high definition “over the edge” printed card. Since the transfer process is not limited by a fixed printhead, but rather utilizes the flexible transfer film material, the re-transfer method is ideal for highly detailed imagery (up to 600dots/in), which can be applied to uneven surfaces such as ID cards with embedded electronic chips (smart cards). Along with advanced printing definition and overall card coverage, the lifespan of a re-transfer printhead is dramatically increased by the lack of contact with the card substrate.
This ID card printer prints with a resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch) or 11.8 dpm (dots per millimeter).
