HID Global confirms GreenCircle certification


HID Global has announced that its HID FARGOHDP6600 High Definition Printer/Encoder is the first and only retransfer printing solution for ID card personalisation that has GreenCircle certification, which is third party certification of environmental claims.

According to the company, the printer’s power-efficient design enables users to save thousands of dollars in annual energy costs for large projects spanning many printers.

HID claims the HDP6600 printer uses a design that delivers the fastest overall throughput speeds and shortest time until the first card is printed. The company adds: “Sustainability is further improved through an optional wasteless lamination module that dramatically reduces the waste by-products that other printers generate. The module cuts consumables costs nearly in half for printed and laminated cards.”

“By combining our patent-pending iON ‘instant on’ technology with an innovative design that permits simultaneous film printing and card retransfer processes, we’ve created one of the world’s fastest solutions while also eliminating the need for continuous transfer heating,” said Craig Sandness, vice president and managing director for Secure Issuance with HID Global. “This advancement enabled us to achieve best-in-class energy efficiency that has now been independently validated through the GreenCircle certification programme.”

HID Global says its sixth-generation HID FARGO HDP6600 printer halves the time required to print the first ID card as compared to many alternatives, while doubling overall throughput to up to 230 cards per hour. It is also easier to service and more flexible to use across a wider range of applications, and less expensive to operate with a lower printing cost per card. The printer offers true 600 DPI resolution with precision colour panel registration for sharper text, crisper barcode edges and more vibrant colours than products that use dithering techniques and can only approximate this image quality.
