Built to withstand large print volumes required by organizations, the DTC4500e Dual-Sided Card Printer from Fargo comes equipped with a variety of features as well as single-sided lamination option 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. And, this model can print double-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. There is also a 100-card reject hopper for getting misprints out of the way. The standard dual-input hopper allows for maximum card input capacity and management of multiple card types. Checking print status is easy with a SmartScreen graphical display on the front panel and the inclusion of the embedded Swift ID card badging for quickly making ID cards and the Fargo Workbench with Color Assist tool for diagnostics and matching colors for accurate prints. Additionally, the printer has both USB 2.0 and Ethernet connectivity options with an internal print server for secure printing.
