It also provides super low running costs and maintenance-free operation. The DILETTA 530i & 550i are fully expressive and able to meet on-demand needs quickly and effortlessly.
This is truly the colour passport solution for today's passport printing office.
The DILETTA 530i & 550i produce mono and colour passport prints at outstanding speeds, using impressive technology that combines bi-directional printing, high speed passport feeding for passports up to 128 pages and state-of-the art print head design. Standard ICAO passport pages are printed at up to 12 seconds in 'high quality' mode and 8 seconds in 'standard' mode.
With precision comes quality
The DILETTA 530i & 550i use a revolutionary 1-inch wide print head to fire tiny ink droplets only 4 pico litres in size, with remarkable precision. With a high-density design that uses 4480 individual ink nozzles for colour printing, the 530i & 550i produce consistent, high quality results. The printer automatically select optimal image resolutions (maximum of 1200 x 600 dpi for mono and 2400 x 1200 dpi for colour), making it simple to get exceptional print quality every time. Bright, fade resistant inks are also used to ensure prints last longer.
Gone are the days when the passport office experiences downtime due to periodic printer maintenance and parts replacement. Thanks to its revolutionary design, the 500i series is the worldwide first passport printer with a complete passport surface contactless and maintenance free passport transport system.

Installations in more than 70 countries worldwide
The DILETTA 500i Series Passport Printer has been installed in more than 70 countries worldwide
The advantages are:
Both the main printer unit and print head are incredibly durable, so changing one of the individual ink tanks is all you will ever likely need to do. However, telephone support is included in the price while optional ‘return to base’ service and on site support is also available when you need it if you need it.
The 530i & 550i are versatile enough to be quickly and easily connected to passport office networks and computers. USB2.0 is supported as standard. A 10/100base-TX Ethernet interface is also available as standard (DILETTA 550i) or as an option (DILETTA 530i). High quality colour business printing has never been so simple or accessible.
Once fitted with Diletta's optional TCP/IP, IPX/SPX Ethernet network card, the 500i series is ready to be plugged into a range of network systems. It is also compatible with NetSpot, a handy application that allows the status of all DILETTA printers connected to the network to be remotely monitored.
Designed with the passport office in mind, the 500i series take up very little vertical space. Thanks to flat construction and a small, easily accessible control panel, it makes very effective use of limited office space. Even noise levels have been taken into consideration. Electrical consumption has also been addressed with the energy-saving design cutting usage to 40W or less during operation and 13W or less during standby.
Cost saving individual high-capacity ink tanks
The DILETTA 500i series comes standard with 370ml high capacity ink tanks (130ml for black and 80ml for each colour ink tank), allowing them to easily cope with large volume printing demands. The individual tanks eliminate ink wastage and make running costs extremely economical for both mono and colour prints.
