Duplo USA Presents Its Newest Print Finishing Equipment At On DemandMarch 2009
SANTA ANA, CA—03/27/2009—At the On Demand Expo, Duplo USA Corporation is presenting its newest print finishing products which demonstrate added versatility and flexibility.
Exhibiting for the first time at On Demand are Duplo’s DC-645 Integrated Folding System, the DFS-3500 Bookletmaking System incorporating a mid-range DBM-350/T Bookletmaker and Trimmer with the DC-445 Creaser, and the DPB-500 PUR Perfect Binder. Visitors can also see the DSF-5000 Document Sheet Feeder in-line with the DBM-500 Bookletmaker and Trimmer, the Ultra 205A UV Coater with optional SF-205A Feeder, the DSF-2000 Near-Line Bookletmaker equipped with the SCC (Slitter/Cutter/Creaser), and the DC-645 and DC-615 Slitter/Cutter/Creasers.
DC-645 Integrated Folding System
Duplo has added a knife folding option to the versatile DC-645 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser, thus hugely extending the in-line capability of the production color finisher. By incorporating folding into the single system operation, printers can now fully finish different applications such as greeting cards, folded ‘tent’ business cards, brochures and much more.
The knife folder incorporates two knife folds making it also ideal for parallel fold applications such as letter folds. With a speed of up to 50 sheets per minute, the new folder fully matches the capabilities of the DC-645 and can also be by-passed for no-fold applications from the DC-645. The finished documents are then stacked in a 15.75” capacity stacker specifically designed to neatly stack and retain even heavier jobs such as folded card stocks.
The flexibility of the DC-645 programming means that all configurations are simple to set up and easy to adjust to suit customer requirements.
DFS-3500 Bookletmaking System
Unveiling for the first time is Duplo’s DBM-350 Mid-Range Bookletmaker and Trimmer in-line with the DC-445 Creaser. The ability of the DBM-350/T to handle set-by-set and sheet-by-sheet output and the DC-445 Creaser to eliminate toner cracking on digital applications make it the ideal solution for printers transitioning from offset to digital.
The fully-automatic DBM-350 Bookletmaker/Trimmer fits between Duplo’s established low-end bookletmaker DBM-120/T and its high-end counterpart the DBM-500/T, and provides an alternative according to production requirements and budgetary needs. Offering stitching heads, speeds of up to 3,000 books an hour, and fully automated set-up, the DBM-350/T is an extremely productive and professional solution. The flexible bookletmaker easily accommodates a range from on-demand applications such as CD and DVD covers through 5.5” x 8.5” to 8.5” x 11” finished booklets of up to 80 pages.
