HID Global announced that it’s HID FARGO HDP6600 High Definition Printer and Encoder is the first and only retransfer printing solution for ID card personalization that has GreenCircle certification.
The HDP6600 printer achieves its breakthrough energy efficiency using a design that also delivers the fastest overall throughput speeds and shortest time until the first card is printed. Sustainability is further improved through an optional wasteless lamination module that dramatically reduces the waste byproducts that other printers generate. The module cuts consumables costs nearly in half for printed and laminated cards.
“By combining our patent-pending iON ‘instant on’ technology with an innovative design that permits simultaneous film printing and card retransfer processes, we’ve created one of the world’s fastest solutions while also eliminating the need for continuous transfer heating, This advancement enabled us to achieve best-in-class energy efficiency that has now been independently validated through the GreenCircle certification program” said Craig Sandness, Vice President and Managing Director for Secure Issuance with HID Global.
The printer offers true 600 DPI resolutions with precision color panel registration for sharper text, crisper barcode edges and more vibrant colors than products that use dithering techniques and can only approximate this image quality.
