Powerful ID Card Printing

This ID card printer has everything you need to quickly, efficiently, and affordably print a high volume of ID cards including the fastest start-up time in the industry with HID Global's patent-pending iON technology getting the printer ready to laminate within 45 seconds of starting.

The DTC5500LMX also comes standard with dual input card hoppers, Ethernet connectivity, dual-sided printing, and dual-sided lamination. High-yield ribbons and overlaminates reduce downtime between card runs so you can print more efficiently.

Durable, Long-lasting Laminated Cards

Standard clear lamination film provides a base level of protection from wear and tampering, and clear overlaminates are available for standard cards, magnetic stripe cards, and smart chip cards.

Need to prevent UV damage to cards that are exposed to sunlight UV protecting overlaminate is also available for many styles of cards. And if you need additional security, holographic overlaminate makes it easier to stop card tampering and illegal duplication.

And the lamination ribbons for this printer have a reduced waste design, without the traditional use of two spools instead of a single spool is used, cutting the amount of waste in half. Additionally, the film is perforated and tears away from the rest of the film when used, leaving no waste or unused edges behind.

Additionally, there are two ways to laminate cards on the DTC5500LMX. You can do single or dual-sided lamination even with the base model of the printer if you use the same type of lamination on both sides of the card. If you need to use a different style of lamination for one side, like a full-card clear overlaminate on the front and a half-panel laminate on the back with a magnetic stripe card, you will need to upgrade to the dual-material lamination option.
