Digital and Color Finishers
On exhibit for the first time at GRAPH EXPO will be the DC-616 PRO slitter/cutter/creaser. Performing up to 6 slits, 25 cuts, and 20 creases in a single pass, this all-in-one finisher trims white borders and applies creases on fold lines to prevent toner cracking on digital color documents. Offering a fully automatic setup and quick changeovers, the DC-616 PRO can finish a wide array of full-bleed digital applications including greeting cards, invitations, brochures, book covers, photos, and 24-up business cards without additional modules required.
The DC-616 PRO comes standard with the PC Controller software for easy job setup via a PC and the CCD scanner, enabling it to recall any job stored in memory simply by reading the printed barcode and automatically set up the job. The scanner also reads registration marks, correcting the sheet-by-sheet image shift and delivering accurately finished pieces every time. The DC-616 PRO also comes included with a perforation unit, which includes two manually-adjustable perforation tools, to perforate along the length of the sheet.
Also on the show floor will be the DC-646 Integrated Folding System, which incorporates an in-line knife folder with the DC-646 to slit/cut/crease and fold documents in one pass; the DC-745 and DC-646 slitter/cutter/creasers, and the DC-445 Integrated Folding System.
Saddle Stitching and Bookletmaking Systems
The iSaddle System is Duplo's high-volume collating and saddle stitching system. Featuring a newly enhanced folding unit, the iSaddle System combines PC-based programming and intelligent feeding with scoring and folding technology to produce thicker, flatter booklets up to 4,500 booklets per hour. What’s more, its modular design enables users to add three-knife trimming capabilities with the optional DKT-200 Two-Knife Trimmer and gutter cutter, which can also process 2-up applications, boosting its production up to 9,000 booklets an hour. Whatever your book production requirements are, the iSaddle System delivers the automation and precision needed, on demand.
Visitors to the booth will also be able to preview the upcoming DFS-1500 Booklet System. Incorporating the slitting and creasing functions of the DC-445 Creaser with the stapling, folding, and trimming capabilities of the DBM-150 bookletmaker, the DFS-1500 provides an all-in-one solution for full-bleed bookletmaking. Equipped with the Isaberg Rapid Stapler and staple cartridge, the DBM-150 bookletmaker produces high quality, stapled applications. Each cartridge holds 5,000 staples and wear parts are replaced each time the cartridge is changed out.
Other systems on display include the 500i Duetto Booklet System, the 500Pro Digital Booklet System with the SCC Slit/Cut/Crease unit, the 350C Booklet System, and the 350 Digital Booklet System.
See the UD-300 On Demand diecutter produce a variety of custom-shaped pieces, retail packages, labels, and folded boxes on demand. Designed for use with flexible dies, the UD-300 performs multiple cuts, slits, slit-scores, kiss cuts, perforations, and window punches on a range of paper stock up to 14x20” at 3,000 sheets/hr. Compact in size and easy to use, the UD-300 diecutter provides a cost-efficient solution with fast die changeover and set up times—making it a great solution for the graphic arts and packaging market.
The new, optional Separator and Conveyor Unit automatically removes the waste of each sheet. The photo-eye sensor ensures only the finished pieces are neatly stacked onto the conveyor for faster productivity.
Showcasing in the perfect binding area will be the new pfiBIND2000 PUR perfect binder. The pfiBIND2000 PUR is the world's smallest PUR perfect binder designed for short-run production. With a speed of up to 290 cycles/hr., the single-clamp pfiBIND2000 features a user-friendly color LCD touchscreen and a closed-tank patented Orbital PUR system that provides accurate glue application on the spine and the side.
The KB-4000 PUR, DPB-500, and DB-280 Perfect Binders will also be on display.
