Digital Color Finishers
The successful DC-745 slitter/cutter/creaser will be spotlighted again at GRAPH EXPO demonstrating its newest capabilities—the strike-perforating and embossing modules! The DC-745 is Duplo’s most powerful all-in-one finishing solution, offering greater speed, productivity and versatility. Performing up to 10 slits, 25 cuts, and 20 creases in one pass, this digital color finisher eliminates white borders and toner cracking on fold lines, producing professionally finished documents in a matter of minutes.
With the strike-perforating module, operators can specify where the wheels are to activate and de-activate. It can be combined with the cross-perforating module to produce “T” or “L” shape perforations inline. The embossing module further enhances the value of printed pieces. Duplo’s complete slitter/cutter/creaser line will be on display, including the DC-615 slitter/cutter/creaser, the DC-645 Integrated Folding System, and the DC-445 Creaser.
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.
