Designed for medium-to-large sized organizations, schools, and government institutions looking for reliable, long-term card printing and encoding solutions. The DTC4500e plastic card printer and encoder from HID Global is designed to handle the daily demands of high-volume card printing. Password protection and data decryption, lockable dual-card hoppers for managing multiple card stocks, and optional holographic or fluorescent (UV) over laminates that substantially boost card longevity round out the security features. The DTC4500e features a modular design empowering you to add, at any time new functionality as the needs of your organization evolve.  For example, an optional dual-sided, printing module can add company- or employee-specific information to the back of a card, such as when a bar code or digital signature is also desired. For production of highly-secure cards that resist forgery and feature increased durability, select either single- or dual-sided holographic image lamination, or go with an embedded iCLASS SE® encoder to streamline the creation, encoding, and management of your physical access smart cards from start-to-finish. Also available, the Wi-Fi® accessory enables you to print cards anytime and anywhere, over any secured wireless network.

PVC Cards process

Almost all card printers work on the same principle: the plastic card is fed through a thermal print head at the same time as a color ribbon. Through the heat emitted by the print head, the color from the ribbon is transferred onto the card. For card printing, the typical resolution is 300 dpi (300 dots per inch, equivalent to 11.8 dots per mm). Laminating plastic cards is also an option. Plastic cards are laminated after printing to achieve a considerable increase in durability and a greater degree of counterfeit prevention.
