Now any size organization can take advantage of high security ID cards

High-function, high-security electronic ID cards and card systems are no longer reserved for cutting-edge organizations with large budgets. Today, security-conscious organizations everywhere can take advantage of the benefits of smart and proximity cards, thanks to more affordable and capable card personalization systems and card stock.

Direct-to-film printing easily handles the irregular surfaces of chip embedded cards
Fargo’s next generation HDP600 High Definition Card Printer/Encoders consistently and perfectly print, encode and laminate technology-rich ID cards. High Definition Printing technology easily handles the surface irregularities of cards with embedded electronics: The HDP600 prints images onto the underside of clear HDP Film, and then fuses the film to the card through heat and pressure. HDP Film smoothes right over the card surface and extends to the edges of smart chips — with consistently perfect results.

The modular design of the HDP600 allows you to personalize cards as much or as little as you like. Optional magnetic encoders, e-card encoder/readers and a Card Lamination Module can be built into the printer, or added at a later date. Whether you order them today or tomorrow, all card printing, encoding and laminating takes place inside the HDP600/encoder, in one continuous pass.

Easy to read LCD lets you know what's going on
Whatever the configuration of your HDP600, it’s loaded with features that make it easy to use. The informative LCD control panel with help text, reject card hopper for malfunctioning cards, automatic card cleaning system and color-coded supplies for fast loading all support High DefinitionPrinting technology – the dependable choice for security-conscious organizations like yours.
