Fargo DTC4500e Single- or Double-Sided, Direct-to-Card Printer


The HID Fargo DTC 4500e builds on the features available in the DTC1250e and 4250e printers, to add even more features for producing longer lasting cards. Upgradeable to meet different printing requirements, the printer is also easily integrated into most HID ecosystems to provide an end-to-end printing, encoding, and laminating machine. 

The DTC4500e has a laminator, which adds an extra layer of protection to your card's image lifespan. Lamination allows you to use the card over many years, without worrying about the card wearing out, or having to be replaced frequently.

The DTC4500e uses large capacity ribbons, so you change supplies less often than with smaller units. The DTC4500e also has two input hoppers, allowing you to have either double the amount of card stock loaded, or switch between two different card stock (without any unnecessary card handling). 

With proper setup help from IDExperts, the DTC4500e runs well in most printing environments. Regular cleaning helps keep your printer running well, reducing the time potentially needed for technical support. All printers purchased from E-CARD come with lifetime phone and email support, above and beyond the manufacturer warranty provided with the printer (and supported by E-CARD).
