Fargo DTC4500e Overview

If your organization needs a powerful ID card printer capable of printing large batches of cards, the Fargo DTC4500e comes with dual input hoppers so you can print up to 200 cards without reloading. For easy maintenance and to reduce printer downtime, the ribbons for the DTC4500e come with an included cleaning roller so you can easily batch print cards.

Powerful ID Card Printing

With the ability to print dual-sided full color cards in just 24 seconds, or monochrome cards in 6 seconds, and dual input card hoppers that hold up to 200 for batch printing, your registration office or front desk will never be waiting for cards.

If you need to print multiple types of cards, the DTC4500e is equipped to print on both standard CR-80 cards and CR-79 adhesive backed cards. You can also print on cards of varying thickness, from thin 9 mil business cards to thinker 40 mil technology cards.

Options for Larger Batch Printing

If you need to print large numbers of cards at once, the DTC4500e comes with several options to make that easier. The default input and output card hoppers hold 200 cards each, so you can print 200 cards at a time without needing to reload the printer with more cards. The DTC4500e also uses high-yield printer ribbons, which have a higher print yield than other ribbons. These ribbons will also help streamline your batch printing process.

For ease of use, you can also upgrade to a same side card input/output hopper (traditionally the input hopper is on one side, and the output hopper on the other) so all your cards are on the same side for easier card loading.

Durable Laminated Cards

Lamination adds an extra layer of security and durability to your cards, protecting them from daily wear and tear and counterfeiting. This single-sided lamination printer will add a clear laminate overlay to the front and back of your ID cards.
