Fargo DTC4500e Single-Sided ID Card Printer

Built to withstand large print volumes required by organizations, the DTC4500e Single-Sided Card Printer from Fargo comes equipped with a variety of features that will allow users to quickly produce ID cards that suit their needs. This direct-to-card printer uses dye sublimation and thermal transfer technology to produce CR-80 and CR-79 adhesive backed cards with a 300 dpi resolution. Also, this system allows for fast print speeds of 16 seconds per card in YMCKO and 6 seconds per card in monochrome.

This model can print single-sided and edge-to-edge for optimum quality. Batch jobs are simplified by the use of a 200-card input hopper and a 100-card output hopper. The standard dual-input hopper allows for maximum card input capacity and management of multiple card types.
