The versatility of the fully automated DPB-500 results in a reduction in set-up times and costs, making it perfect for short run and variable print, while its high capacity book production speeds make it equally suitable for longer runs. One of the machine's key attributes is its easy-to-use integrated touch-screen controls, which facilitates a 35 second set-up between programs, resulting in a book-bound quality finish with minimal operator skills.
New System 3500 Bookletmaking System
At Graph Expo, Duplo will also introduce the mid-range System 3500 which incorporates up to two DC-10/60 collators with the new DBM-350/T bookletmaker and trimmer. 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, as such, 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 to 5.5" x 8.5" to 8.5" x 11" finished booklets of up to 80 pages.
The ability of the DBM-350/T to handle set-by-set and sheet-by-sheet output with equal ease means that it can be connected to Duplo's collating systems or dynamic sheet feeders, making it ideal for printers making the transition from offset to digital, allowing them to incorporate color content and variable data into their finishing solutions.
Duplo's new DP-J450 Duplicator is an entry-level 300 x 600 dpi 11"x17" printer, engineered for economy and ultra-low energy use, with a built-in book scanner designed to meet the needs of quick printers as well as the office environment. This new model features High Resolution Imaging (HRi), which is achieved through the combination of master material, high carbon soy ink and quality thermal print heads resulting in outstanding quality output with rich, unbroken solid print.
