Fargo HDP6600 Retransfer Dual Sided ID Card Printer Description

A Full Service Retransfer Card Printer Solution

For the past 20 years, FARGO has been processing the past 60 years of retransfer technology to produce a cutting edge dual-sided printer ready to dominate the market. The HID® FARGO® HDP6600 is the product of seamless innovation which presents some never before seen features in a retransfer card printer along with patent-pending iON™ technology. What results is by far the fastest ID printer of its kind that you’ll find on the market today.

When Speed Matters Most

Producing up to 230 high definition cards per hour, there isn’t an on-demand job the HDP6600 can’t handle. From large scale events to complex multinational corporations, this printer saves countless man and wait hours through the use of its innovative technology.

The patent-pending iON™ technology is capable of rapidly heating the transfer roller optional laminator. The result is a printer that reaches optimal operating temperatures in just seconds. Whereas other laminators can take as long as 5 minutes to head up, the HDP6600 is ready produce in just 60 seconds or less. This means the HDP6600 can produce laminated cards up to 80% faster than other products on the market.

Big Performance of High-volume Jobs

When big jobs call for bit time performance, the HDP6600 can produce on a scale few desktop retransfer printers can rival. Large corporations, sprawling universities, massive healthcare facilities and full-scale government agencies, when high-volume printing is the name of the game the HDP6600 is difficult to beat. It offers support for high-yield, full-color ribbon, and laminate consumables resulting in maximum productivity and minimal costs. If you find yourself in need of increased capacity, an optional 200-card input hopper is available and ready.

Sharper, crisper images and text with 600 dpi

Just because you want high-volumes and top notch speeds doesn’t mean you should sacrifice quality. The HDP6600 produces crisp images with vibrant colors that pop. When branding matters, there is no replacement for the printer that will produce images and texts just as your marketing team imagined. The 600 dpi resin printing features allow you to sprint small and detailed text along with crisply defined barcodes.

Better Security with Smarter Cards and Smarter Technology

When you need a little more functionality from your IDs, the HDP6600 delivers with precision. It offers encoding options that allow the printer to produce secure contact and contactless smart cards that can be tailored for every occasion. The HDP6600 can also print right up to the edge of the smart chips and with an optional card flattener, you can ensure a smooth and level product at the end.


The HDP6600 utilizes HID Global’s innovative wasteless lamination technology. This reduces the need for excess plastic waste that comes with most lamination consumables you’ll find currently on the market. This means a retransfer printer that is not only better for the environment, but better for business as it reduces material costs up to 40%. Combined with wastless PolyGuard™ LMX overlaminates, the life of your card will be extended as well.
