Key Printer Features

Print Quality 

The HDP6600’s utilises 600dpi high definition print technology, with the final result being a photo ID card that shows the true value of your brand or organisation. The 600 dpi printing capabilities of the HDP6600 give you the ability to precisely print small text, complex characters and crisply defined barcodes like never before. New to the 6600 is HID Global's patent-pending iON™ technology which allows the printer to reach the optimal print temperature in under 60 seconds. This means less time is spent heating the machine, so you can start printing straight away.

Print Speeds

The HDP6600 offers retransfer card throughput speeds of up to 230 cards per hour (YMCK with Transfer). Faster speeds enable the user to print more high-quality cards in shorter time frames providing them a level of productivity not available before. Another benefit is HID Global's new patent-pending iON™ technology, which allows the HDP6600 to reach optimal printing temperature in under 60 seconds, enabling the user to start printing much sooner.


HID Fargo is a brand known for delivering products that are reliable and built to last. Fargo has included a three-year manufacturer’s warranty on the 6600 and free lifetime warranty on the printhead.


The driver installation disk and quick start guide included inside the box make the setup process run as smooth as possible, ensuring you are set up correctly and printing in no time. If you do run into difficulty, then don't panic. We have a dedicated in-house technical support team who are on hand to assist.

Ease of Use

Ease of use is a big factor in the decision process of purchasing a new ID card printer. The 6600 is a flexible, modular system that can grow with your needs. This means that if you originally purchase a standard model but need additional encoding options, you can add these on with no issue. The printer also has a clear LCD screen for simple navigation making ribbon changes, cleaning cycles and other day to day maintenance extremely easy to undertake.


The HDP6600 offers a number of encoding options listed below:

  • Supported smart card and magnetic stripe technologies.
  • 125kHz (HID Prox) reader.
  • 13.56 MHz (iCLASS® Standard/SE/ SR/Seos.
  • MIFARE Classic®, MIFARE Plus®, MIFARE DESFire® EV1.
  • ISO 14443 A/B, ISO 15693) read/write encoder.
  •  contact smart card encoder reads from and writes to all ISO7816 1/2/3/4 memory and microprocessor smart cards (T=0, T=1) as well as synchronous cards.
  • ISO magnetic stripe encoding, dual high- and low-coercivity, tracks 1, 2 and 3.

Printer Type 

The HDP6600 is a retransfer printer which utilises 600dpi printing technology. The printer uses heat to transfer the design onto the ribbon and then thermally bond this onto the card, creating a durable, glossy finish. It produces both full-colour and monochrome cards in an over-the-edge format, so there are no white borders visible on any printed card. Combining all the features of the 6600 making it the most advanced, efficient and fastest desktop-based retransfer printer available on the market.

Card Types

The HDP6600 prints full over-the-edge coverage on standard CR80 credit-card sized cards. The printer t is compatible with a range of card types including PVC, PET and ABS, however, if printing to smart cards our advice is to speak to a member of our team before purchasing who can confirm that the card type is compatible with this printer.


Both USB and Ethernet connectivity options come as standard. This allows stand-alone printing to one desktop, or the ethernet connectivity allows multiple users to be connected to the printer via the network.

Operating Systems

The following operating software is compatible with the 600 model: Windows® 10 / 8.1 / 8 / 7 / Server 2016 / Server 2012 / Server 2012 R2 / Server 2008 / Server 2008 R2.


The Fargo HDP6600 dimensions are 33cm (H) x 36.8cm (W) x 30.5cm (D) and weighs 9.5kgs (single-sided), with the dual-sided and lamination models slightly larger.


Launched in late 2018, HDP6600 ensures it fits into any office environment while the LCD interface gives it a modern look and the clear grey hopper allows you to see when your cards need changing, making it stylish yet functional.
