The Fargo® DTC5500LMX is a high-end ID card printer from HID®. Designed to be fast, efficient and easy to use, the DTC5500LMX is the perfect ID card printer for colleges, government offices and other large-scale badging programs.
The DTC5500LMX uses direct-to-card resin thermal transfer printing to create images and text of the highest quality on CR80/credit card-sized (2.13” x 3.38”) ID cards. With a print resolution of 300 dpi, your logos and employee photos will truly stand out.
Dual-sided lamination is standard on each model of the DTC5500LMX. You can achieve one or two-material lamination. One-material lamination coats the front and back of your card in the same material, while two-material lamination enables you to use different laminates for the front and back. Two-material lamination is ideal for those who want to use a holographic foil laminate on the front of their cards but a plain material on the back.
