At the CARTES & IDentification show in Paris, HID Global has expanded its card personalisation portfolio with the FARGO HDP8500 Industrial Card Printer/Encoder.

Featuring the company’s fifth generation High Definition Printing (HDP) technology, the new Industrial Series printer/encoder is a card issuance product for the US firm says extended-run, high throughput and high duty cycle requirements for government ID, universities and large enterprises.

The FARGO HDP8500 printer/encoder includes a 400-card total input capacity. This, with an industry-first graphical touch screen user interface, helps minimise operator intervention and maximise card yield per shift, the company says. The HDP8500 is built using solid metal cabinetry with precision-engineered interior components to provide greater resistance to parts fatigue, and is designed to work with the most durable consumables. For operational and issuance security, the printer is the makers say the first personalisation solution in the market that has been architected for use within the HID Global Trusted Identity Platform (TIP) ecosystem, allowing it to process and generate Secure Identity Objects for security and authentication where citizen privacy in government ID card projects and heightened security in other card programmes is a necessity.

“Our new Industrial Series HDP8500 card personalisation solution is particularly well-suited for ID programs where high-capacity printing and encoding coupled with the highest levels of security and privacy is a top priority,” said Alan Fontanella, vice president of product marketing with HID Global. “Backed by HID Global’s 45 years of manufacturing excellence and featuring our High Definition Printing technology, the FARGO HDP8500 printer/encoder delivers the highest quality print images in addition to unparalleled reliability and performance.”

The printer includes security features such as operator PIN number access and multi-locking entry points for secure printing; AES 256 bit data encryption and resin ribbon data-erase functionality; and secure holographic lamination for lasting protection from fraud.
