Digital Color Finishers
Making its debut is Duplo’s new mid-range digital color finisher, the DC-646 slitter/cutter/creaser. Set to succeed the popular DC-645 model, the DC-646 provides small to mid-volume printers the ability to produce a wider range of unique full-bleed documents with more efficiency and flexibility. Performing up to 6 slits, 25 cuts and 20 creases in a single pass, the DC-646 eliminates white borders and prevents toner cracking on fold lines up to 30 sheets per minute and also offers optional rotary tool and cross perforating modules for increased versatility. With the DC-646, users can create 24-up business cards, slit-score greeting cards, micro-perforated coupons, and much more!
The high production DC-745 slitter/cutter/creaser, NAQP’s 2012 Product of the Year, and the DC-645 slitter/cutter/creaser featuring its new JDF capabilities will be on the show floor as well along with the DC-445, DC-615 and DC-745 integrated folding systems.
Saddle Stitching and Bookletmaking Systems
Also debuting at PRINT 13 is the entry-level 150C Booklet System, which incorporates the new DBM-150 bookletmaker with the DSC-10/20 suction collator.

Book blocks produced on these binders will be a part of our live hard-cover book making workflow process.
Hard-cover Book Making System
Also on display will be the Mitabook, a hard-cover casing-in solution designed to economically produce short-run hard-cover and photo books on demand. The Mitabook automatically feeds and glues book blocks onto pre-made hard covers and delivers finished books in a matter of minutes with only a single operator required. For a complete solution, users can use the Mitacase to create quality hard covers and the Mitamax to create book blocks quickly and efficiently.
