Fargo HDP600 PVC Card Printer


The HDP600 Is Dual- or single-sided High Definition Printing (HDP ). Prints encodes and laminates cards with embedded electronics in one pass, Supports advanced e-card applications by encoding up to three, embedded technologies, plus mag stripe, Deters counterfeiting with HDP Film and holographic overlaminates.HDP600 CR100 prints oversized ID badges for greater event security. The HDP600 CR100 can also print on both sides of a badge in one pass. Even with a big color photoon the front, there's plenty of space on the back for black-and-white text, bar codes and digital signatures. Dual-sided printing is an important security feature too, since counterfeiters don't often get a good look at both sides of an authentic card.Durability is a key quality of the HDP600 CR100 printer/encoder. The HDP platform has proven itself in thousands of high-demand, high-security event, government and corporate installations around the world. In the office, service bureau or at an event site, the HDP600 CR100 is up to the task of high-volume badge printing. Big events are an attractive target for ID badge counterfeiters. But with its optional lamination module, the HDP600 CR100 can add a holographic overlaminate to your badges for maximum protec- tion from forgery, tampering and routine wear and tear. An overlaminate can make your event badges more durable, which can reduce costly rebadging.

Fargo HDP600 Specifications

HDP600 Card Printer & System

Produces high-security smart cards that meet FIPS 201 and other federal standards for government and corporate ID applications.

  • Supports advanced smart card applications by encoding up to three embedded technologies, plus magnetic stripe.
  • Prints dual- or single-sided, encodes and laminates cards with embedded electronics, all in one pass.
  • Deters counterfeiting with tamper-evident High Definition Printing™ (HDP®) Film and holographic overlaminates.
  • On the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) list for FIPS 201 Approved Products.

HDP600 System

Protect your photo ID smart cards and your entire card issuance process with a combination of Fargo Secure software and hardware.

HSPD-12 Supported

The HDP600 is designed to help you comply with emerging federal secure identification directives and standards such as HSPD-12, FIPS 201 and PIV. On the GSA list for FIPS 201 Approved Products.

Purchase Considerations

Facilities access. Network access. Information access. In high-security government and corporate situations, photo ID cards do more than match a name to a face.


Print Security Manager™

Protect ID card issuance across a network through centralized management of users, devices and materials. Up to six integrated applications help keep distributed issuance secure with realtime monitoring of all card identity system components.

Fargo Professional Services

Make sure your large-scale card identity system meets all of your requirements. Fargo Professional Services works in tandem with your Fargo integrator to provide expert program management, system design, implementation and product customization.


SecureVault is unique hardware and software system for protecting an often-overlooked part of card identity systems — materials security. SecureVault tracks the movement and use of blank cards, printer ribbons, holographic films and other sensitive materials.

Visual Security Solutions™: Holographic HDP® Film

High Secure holograms on tamper-evident HDP Film are the ultimate in visual security. Choose either a custom film with your unique holographic image, or film with Fargo’s standard Orbit hologram. Both include multiple Visual Security Elements and are difficult to forge, yet easy to authenticate.



Smart card encoding

Comprehensive security applications frequently combine photo IDs with some type of technology or “smart” cards. With optional modules, Fargo’s Professional Series printer encoders can encode up to three smart card technologies in one pass: contact and contactless smart card, mag stripe, and proximity card (read-only.)

Optional lamination module

Photo ID cards are often subject to extra wear and tear; especially when they’re used for access control or employee services. The optional lamination module not only makes your cards more durable, it can add a critical layer of security that’s extremely difficult to forge.

High Definition Printing™ Technology

The uneven surface of smart cards presents a challenge to traditional dye-sublimation card printers. But Fargo’s High Definition Printing™ Technology overcomes this problem while increasing card security with a tamper-evident image.

Optional internal print server

With its optional internal print server and Ethernet connectivity, the HDP600 brings secure printing/encoding to networked or distributed ID card issuance for government, large corporations and service bureaus.


Nobody has more demanding security needs than federal governments and large corporations. The HDP600 is designed for the most advanced security applications whether it’s physical access into operations centers or research labs, or logical access to critical networks or databases. The HDP600 supports US federal government standards like FIPS 201 for secure personal identity credentials. The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has certified the HDP600 as a FIPS 201 Approved Product for issuing security credentials.

Smart cards are a smart idea in a wide range of applications. The same card that grants an employee access to the parking ramp and office can also carry a palmprint for network access and code for charging lunch in the cafeteria. The HDP600’s optional encoding modules cover all of the major card technologies, from proximity to DESFire. Using the HDP600 to combine identity functions into one multipurpose card not only saves money, it makes your operations more secure.

Card issuance
We can’t say it enough: An ID card is only as secure as the system that issued it. And Fargo makes the world’s most secure card identity systems. They’re built on a common technology platform Fargo ’s exclusive SecureMark® Technology that reduces vulnerabilities throughout the system, from storing blank ribbons to password-protecting printers. When you combine the HDP600 printer/encoder with our Print Security Manager™ software and SecureVault™ materials management system, you surround your card issuance process with exceptionally high-level protection.

So who can you trust to help you put all of this together? Trust the real-world expertise of a Fargo Authorized Integrator. Fargo Authorized Integrators are a critical part of your entire card identity system the people who make everything work and help you keep it secure. Fargo Professional Services works in tandem with your Fargo Authorized Integrator to provide expertise and product customization for large, sophisticated card identity systems.
