What is Inkjet printing and what is DOD (Drop on Demand)?

Inkjet card printing is a type of card printing that recreates text and digital images by propelling droplets of ink onto the card. HID FARGO INK1000 offers an inkjet card printing capability.

• There are two inkjet printing methods. These are Continuous Inkjet (CIJ) and Drop on Demand (DOD):
• As the name implies, continuous inkjet technology ejects drops continuously from the printhead. These drops are then either directed to the printing surface as printing drops or to a collector for recirculation and re-use. This methodology is very old and not typically used in card printing.
• Drop on Demand technology ejects drops from the printhead only when required. HID FARGO INK1000 inkjet printing uses the Drop on Demand method.
• There are two approaches to the DOD method. These are Thermal DOD and Piezoelectric (or Piezo) DOD.
• Thermal DOD essentially relies on heat and vaporization to force ink from the print head to the substrate. HID FARGO INK1000 inkjet printing uses Thermal DOD.
• Piezoelectric DOD uses an electrical charge to force precise amounts of ink onto the substrate.

What card types are supported with the HID FARGO INK1000 Inkjet Card Printer?

The HID FARGO INK1000 card printer accepts CR-80 size cards and supports the following card types: Supports standard PVC card types: PVC, press polished PVC, composite (PET/PVC with PVC as an outer layer), laminated PVC (credit card construction)

Fargo Ink1000 ID Card Printer

Print Method Thermal inkjet
Resolution Up to 600 dpi x 1200 dpi (23.6 dots/mm x 47.2 dots/mm)
Ink Type The HID FARGO INK1000 printer utilizes a single ink cartridge containing YMC (Yellow, Magenta, Cyan) solvent-based inks for printing full-color card designs and barcode-readable composite black. The composite black created by the HID FARGO INK1000 can accurately reproduce even complex characters, such as Kanji, Arabic and Cyrillic. The easy-to-install, snap-in ink cartridge contains specially formulated inks that naturally adhere to standard, off-the-shelf PVC and composite cards—and because inks are inherently UV-stable, images and text exhibit improved fade resistance.
