DBMi Saddle System: Precision Bookletmaking On Demand
Duplo will be debuting for the first time in the United States the DBMi Saddle System, the new heavy-duty, high volume collating and saddle stitch bookletmaking system designed for both offset and digital work. Producing up to 4,500 booklets per hour with superior flatness, the rugged DBMi incorporates the DBM-S Saddle Stitcher with up to six DSC-10/60i Collators and can process short-runs just as efficiently as longer runs to maximize profits. The entire system is operated from one convenient location using the Windows-based PC Controller software.
The DBM-S Saddle Stitcher rapidly transitions from CD-size booklets to letter landscape and up to 14x12” books without any manual adjustments required. The optional DKT-200 Two-Knife Trimmer and gutter cutter can be added to produce full-bleed finished books in-line as well as 2-up applications, further increasing the output to 9,000 books per hour. Optional three or four-stitcher head kits are also available.
The DSC-10/60i Collator offers an optional bin extension kit for feeding up to 14x24” sheets and an optional intelligent feed function (IMBF) for custom feed applications. Modular in design, the DBMi Saddle System is the next level up in heavy-duty, high-volume quality bookletmaking from Duplo.
Harry Nguyen, product manager at Duplo USA comments, “With the trend towards digital printers handling larger sheet sizes and increasingly popular letter/A4 landscape books, we wanted to introduce a bookletmaker that meets this rapidly growing market while addressing our customers’ needs for thicker and flatter books. Duplo has achieved this with the DBMi Saddle System.”
