HID Global announced it has expanded its card personalization portfolio with the introduction of its 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 superior card personalization and issuance solution for extended-run, high throughput and high duty cycle requirements of government ID card programs, laborious service bureaus conditions, universities and large enterprises.

The FARGO HDP8500 printer/encoder includes a 400-card total input capacity. This, combined with a graphical touch screen user interface, helps minimize operator intervention and maximize card yield per shift. The high performance 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 long-life card provision in small and large government ID programs.

The printer includes a set of additional 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.
