IRVINE, Calif., November 5, 2012 – HID Global, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, today announced the FARGO HDP8500LE Industrial Card Laser Engraver, a new module in its FARGO Industrial Series for high-security state and government eID programs and other applications requiring advanced visual security. Leveraging the most versatile laser engraving technology in card identity systems, the high security HDP8500LE system permanently engraves a range of unalterable personalization attributes into cards, making forgery and alteration virtually impossible. With the HDP8500LE hardware and Asure ID Software, HID delivers the industry’s easiest-to-use desktop solution for simultaneously printing, encoding, engraving and laminating IDs. Asure ID software provides users with a single card template that integrates data to be printed, programmed and engraved into a card, greatly enhancing the efficiency of secure ID issuance operations.

“The HDP8500LE system is ideal for card issuance programs that bear an elevated risk of forgery or identity misrepresentation, including drivers’ licenses, citizen identity permits, other national ID programs, as well as high security enterprise environments seeking state-of-the-art visual security,” said Alan Fontanella, vice president of product marketing for secure issuance with HID Global. “Laser engraving sophisticated visual security elements on IDs provides greatly increased protection against ID card counterfeiting and tampering since damage from alteration attempts is immediately evident.”

The HDP8500LE raises the technology barrier against fraud by delivering overt and covert visual security elements together with the highest levels of system and output security. Precision laser engravers allow program designers to add custom security features, which may be authenticated with the human eye, as well as covert and forensic features, which require tools such as a magnifying glass or ultraviolet light to enable authentication.

Engrave Security into Every Card

HID Global laser engraving technology creates surface relief in the form of raised lettering that enables verification of authenticity at the touch of a finger. An optional camera vision system ensures accurate placement and registration of data on the card surface, and reproduction is so precise that it even allows the engraving of microtext that cannot be read without a magnification tool. The HDP8500LE system can also produce multiple and/or changeable laser images (MLI/CLI), which counterfeiters are unable to mimic using regular printers.

Color print, encode, laser engrave and laminate cards simultaneously

In addition to the new HDP8500LE laser engraver module, the Industrial Series includes the high duty HDP8500 printer/encoder, incorporating fifth generation HID Global High Definition Printing (HDP) technology, and an integrated lamination module. The Industrial Series is built for maximum reliability in challenging environments. Specifically, it offers ease of use and maintenance to reduce training and issuance costs, field-upgradeable options to meet specialized or evolving requirements and flexible deployment options enabling use in distributed or centralized issuance locations. The entire HDP8500 system is supported by HID’s Asure ID Exchange Card Personalization Software. Seamless integration of all HDP8500 personalization modules enables ID program administrators to create end-to-end security around their entire issuance operation.
