Product Features

  • Sharp image restransfer printing
    Distinct text and vibrant colors with the special edition Fargo HDP6600 ID printer gives your brand the representation it deserves. Equipped with sixth-generation retransfer technology, the Fargo HDP badge printers produce high-definition photographic 600DPI resolution images, sharp tiny text, and crisp barcodes.Retransfer (also known as ''reverse transfer'') is a card printing method that produces rich, vibrant, saturated color on plastic ID cards. With retransfer printing, the printhead never touches the surface of the ID cards. Instead, the card images are printed on a clear, retransfer film that is fused to the card's surface. With retransfer printing, over-the-edge (aka "full-bleed") printing is possible - even for uneven card surfaces! Smart cards, proximity cards, and pre-punched cards all print easily with the HDP6600XE.

  • Accelerated print speeds
    The Fargo patent-pending iON technology is the driving secret behind its fast warm-up speed. 60 seconds is all it takes to produce cards with the HDP6600 XE plastic card printer. A maximum print 230/hour cuts your annual wait time up to 20 hours. Compared to other retransfer printers that can take several minutes before they're ready to print the very first card, your HDP6600XE will help you boost your productivity and have you printing professional-grade credentials in no time.

  • Increased printing efficiency
    Your entire printing process is expedited thanks to the special edition Fargo HDP6600's genius ability to print a card while simultaneously applying transfer film to the next card in line. This double-duty printing process considerably speeds up the time it takes to print large batches of cards, as well as measurably increase productivity with your card issuance program.

  • Upgraded physical security & durability
    Retransfer printing is inherently more secure and durable than other forms of printing due to method of how your ID cards are printed. That means if a counterfeiter attempts to peel apart the layers of the card, the image will be destroyed. Additionaly, the retransfer (HDP) film adds another layer of protection between the card image and the surrounding environment. Security is increased with a holographic mark known as 'High-Secure Design' reducing the ability to replicate cards. And 600DPI printing resolution with the Fargo HDP6600 XE ID card printer also allows you to print a variety of security features like fine text and characters.

  • Flexible & secure supplies
    The HDP6600 XE card printer can be loaded with a variety of cards, ribbons, films, and laminates to suit your needs for card security and durability. The HDP6600 supports CR80 cards in a thickness between 30 Mil and 40 Mil. Aside from the cards, this Fargo printer accepts standard retransfer film, high-durability retransfer film, or holographic retransfer film. While high-durability retransfer film is three times tougher than standard films, holographic retransfer film features a high-secure orbit hologram design for increased card security. When it comes to ribbons, all standard monochrome and color formats are compatible with Fargo's HDP6600 XE plastic card printer.

  • Modular configuration options
    The special edition Fargo HDP6600 printer is specially designed to tailor the needs of the user. Each component of the system is known as a "module." If you want to add an additional feature at any point such as dual-sided printing - simply purchase the appropriate module and attach it to your existing system. Various field-upgradable modules are available, including dual-sided printer (flipper module), card flattener, magnetic stripe, contact and contactless encoding, and wifi connectivity. Whatever your needs may be down the road, the Fargo HDP6600 XE modules will meet you there.

  • Optional dual-sided printing
    With the HDP6600 XE badge printer, you have the option to select a field-upgradable flipper module in order to add dual-sided printing at any point in the future. The extra space resulting from dual-sided printing is often used for additional cardholder information, barcodes, and contact information for lost cards. Some users duplicate card information from the front onto the back so that the information is always visible, regardless of whether the card flips over. Whatever your needs may be, you'll have the extra space available with dual-sided printing.
