Duplo to Showcase Extended Finishing Capabilities at GRAPH EXPOSeptember 20, 2012
Highlighted will be the new UD-300 Die Cutter. Efficient for short- to medium-runs, the UD-300 utilizes flexible dies, which are quick and cost-effective to manufacture, to convert a wide range of paper stock up to 14x 20” in one pass. Multiple cuts, slits, slit-scores, perforations, and window punches of any shape can be combined into a single die, and up to 3,000 sheets per hour can be processed. Visitors will have the opportunity to see the diversity of intricately-shaped stationery and packaging applications that can be produced on demand.
Showing for the first time in the United States will be the FKS PrintBind KB-4000 PUR Perfect Binder. This single-clamp perfect binder combines heavy-duty milling and notching with the strong adhesiveness of both PUR and EVA hot melt side glues to produce high quality, perfect bound books at a cycling speed of up to 200 books per hour. Books are first applied with PUR along the spine then side-glued with the fast-drying EVA, allowing books to be handled faster than traditional PUR solutions. Also on exhibit will be the DB-280 and DPB-500 Perfect Binders.
Debuting at GRAPH EXPO will be the new Ultra 100A UV Coater. Similar to the Ultra 200A model, which can too be seen at the show, the Ultra 100A is also capable of coating both sides of the sheet with a smear-free finish. Processing 13” paper widths up to 33 feet per minute, the Ultra 100A provides the perfect alternative for printers with lower volume demands.
Other products not to be missed are the Foldmaster Touchline CP375 high-speed creasing and perforating unit, and CF375 high-speed creaser and folder. Also on display will be the RC-7 Round Corner Cutter, DF-1000 Air Suction Folder, 660P Hydraulic Cutter, and DP-U850 Digital Printing System, as well as the CC-330 and CC-228 Card Cutters.
At the Konica Minolta Business Solutions and Ricoh booths, Duplo’s slitter/cutter/creasers will also be showcased in addition to their range of digital print solutions.
