HID Global Announces World’s Fastest Retransfer Printer for Personalizing ID Cards

by December 10, 2018 0 comments

HID Global announced the launch of a new ID card retransfers 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. This new printer is designed to save customers time, money and energy.

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 re-engineered 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.

The approach also eliminates the need for continuous transfer roller heating, improving reliability while cutting energy usage. For large projects, utilizing the new printers can save users lakhs of rupees in annual energy costs.

“With the increase in demand for high security, quality and efficiency for card issuance, we see a great growth potential for a 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 colour quality on each ID card. The HDP6600 printer’s true 600 DPI resolution and precision colour panel registration enable sharper text, crisper barcode edges and more vibrant colours than possible with other products that use dithering techniques that can only approximate this image quality.

The printer uses a multi-tasking architecture supported by a full gigabyte of memory to help enable its faster card throughput speeds and has been designed so that the card path and film and ribbon drawer assemblies are easier to access and service.

The HDP6600 is field-upgradable with optional modules including a card flattener, dual-side flipper, and choice of magnetic, contact and contactless encoders plus a programmer option for encoding physical access control system data.
