HID Global unveiled new ID card retransfer printer with breakthrough speed. The HID FARGO HDP6600 High Definition Printer/Encoder, halves the time it takes to print the first ID card, while doubling overall throughput as compared to many alternatives.
The HID FARGO HDP6600 printer is the company’s sixth-generation retransfer printer under HID’s FARGO brand, the most trusted name in ID card printers. HID Global has completely reengineered the retransfer printing concept and redesigned the printer from the ground up to accelerate high-volume and quality printing, lower the printing cost per card and deliver best-in-class energy efficiency–all with HID’s well-known industry-leading reliability. As a result, the new printer is easier to service, less expensive to operate and more flexible across a wider range of applications.
HID has achieved breakthrough card throughput speeds by combining patent-pending iON “instant on” technology with other advancements to enable simultaneous film printing and card retransfer processes. This unique approach reduces the time it takes to print the first card to an industry-low 60 seconds, cutting average annual wait times by up to 20 hours for printed and laminated cards while enabling overall throughput of up to 230 cards per hour.
“With the increase in demand for high security, quality and efficiency for card issuance, we see a great growth potential for fast, responsive and efficient solution. With the HID FARGO HDP6600 printer, HID Global has redefined retransfer technology innovation,” said Wei Jin Lee, Regional Director Secure Issuance, APAC with HID Global. “We looked at this well-established product category with new eyes to deliver the features and capabilities that are in highest demand from government, enterprise and higher education customers. The HID FARGO HDP6600 is not only breathtakingly fast and efficient, but it represents a whole new way to think about retransfer printing.”
Another benefit of the new HID FARGO printer is the image and color quality on each ID card. The HDP6600 printer’s true 600 DPI resolution and precision color panel registration enables sharper text, crisper barcode edges and more vibrant colors than possible with other products that use dithering techniques that can only approximate this image quality.
