Product Description

High volume, reliable performance at an ultra-low cost-per-card.


High Volume Performance

The DTC5500LMX all-in-one, direct-to-card (DTC®) printing and lamination solution delivers reliable, high-volume production at an ultra-low cost-per-card. The solution is ideal for organizations that require robust printing and lamination every day. This enables cost-conscious organizations to routinely issue secure, durable cards in greater volumes without sacrificing quality.  Designed to meet the needs of mediumto-large corporations, universities, as well as government and healthcare facilities, the DTC5500LMX includes standard dual-card hoppers and support for high-capacity, full-color ribbon and laminate consumables – keeping costs at a minimum while maximizing productivity.

High Durability Cards at a Fraction of the Cost

The DTC5500LMX utilizes HID Global’s innovative wasteless lamination technology, eliminating the need for the standard carrier film and take-up core included in most lamination consumables on the market today. The advanced wasteless lamination technology can substantially reduce high volume laminate materials costs by as much as 50%. Utilizing the wasteless PolyGuard™ LMX overlaminates, DTC5500LMX lamination extends the life of your cards by providing the highest level of card coverage protection available. Whether you need multi-function smart cards, highly secure government credentials, or gift and loyalty cards, the DTX5500LMX consistently produces sharp, professional-looking cards, every time. In addition, the DTC5500LMX laminate coverage increases card durability for credentials that will last. PolyGuard™ LMX overlaminates are available in three options: clear, holographic and custom holographic for even greater security.
