Key Printer Features

Is the Fargo HDP6600 right for you?

The Fargo HDP6600 is a retransfer printer, ideal for advanced ID card printing. As a retransfer printer, the HDP6600 is great for printing complex designs containing block colours, printing large volumes of cards (say, over 500) and for printing onto access control and smart cards. So, if that sounds familiar, then the HDP6600 may be just what you’re looking for. Alternatively, if you need to print a very basic design onto a fewer number of blank plastic cards, not access control cards, the Fargo DTC1250e ID card printer might be a better fit.

Sharper, crisper images in 600 dpi.

The Fargo 6600 ID card printer offers High Definition Printing™ as standard, ensuring superior image quality every time. The ID card printer delivers an improved 600 dpi resolution to ensure sharper, crisper images and text on every printed card. As a retransfer printer, the machine provides complete over-the-edge coverage, delivering a truly professional look. There couldn’t be a better way to print your ID cards.

Ready when you are.

If you’ve ever used a retransfer printer before, you’ll know how long it takes to heat up. The Fargo HDP6600 uses its patent-pending iON™ technology to ensure it’s ready when you are, every time. This ‘instant-on’ technology allows the machine to reach optimal operating temperature in no time, meaning you can get started printing cards. The machine is also easy-to-use, with an intuitive touch screen display for simple navigation making ribbon changes, cleaning cycles and other day to day maintenance extremely easy to undertake.

First card out in under 60 seconds.

No one wants to sit around waiting for their cards to print - and the HDP6600 gets that. The machine delivers unprecedented speeds to maximise productivity and get your cards with you as soon as possible. The HDP6600 can print up to 230 cards an hour (YMCK ribbon with transfer), meaning you can print and issue cards in no time.

Security from end-to-end.

Enhance your organisation's security with the HDP6600. The 6600 comes with password protection to keep the physical machine and its data safe. The printer's resin scramble feature adds an additional layer of security by scrambling the data on used ribbons, making it indecipherable and safeguarded from fraudulent use. Users also have the option to add physical locks to their machines, further enhancing security.

The flexible system that evolves with your needs.

The HDP6600 allows you to meet your card application needs today and in the future. The printer offers various add-on options, including dual-sided printing, encoding and lamination modules. These upgrade options ensure users can easily customise their machines to meet their ever-changing card printing requirements.

Energy-efficient and earth-friendly.

HID Fargo strives to maintain a positive impact on its energy usage, and the 6600 is proof of that. The machine boasts GreenCircle® certification, meaning it uses less energy than any competitive printer in the space. And alongside these significant energy savings, the 6600 leverages HID Global’s innovative wasteless lamination technology, helping cut your high-volume lamination materials costs by up to 40%. It's a win-win.
