Duplo’s Range Of New Products and Flexibile Finishing Solutions to Take Center Stage in Düsseldorf
DC-645 Production Color Finisher with New Conveyor/Folder/Stacker
For the first time, Duplo is adding a knife folding option to the versatile DC-645 slitter, cutter, creaser, thus hugely extending the on-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, leaflets and many 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 400mm capacity stacker specifically designed to neatly stack and retain even heavier jobs such as folded card stocks.
At drupa, Duplo will present the DC-645 in a straight conveyor/folder/stacker configuration, however, ultimately the company will offer a modular range of configurations including cross-and straight-conveyors as well as simple and more sophisticated stackers. The cross-conveyor version will keep single batch outputs in sequence for applications such as photos and coupons. The flexibility of the DC-645 programming means that all configurations are simple to set up and easy to adjust to suit customer requirements.
DSF-5000 High Speed Dynamic Sheet Feeder
An addition to the Duplo dynamic sheet feeder family and next-level option to the established DSF-2000, Duplo’ s new DSF-5000 modular high speed, production level feeder offers a number of enhanced benefits to give greater productivity for near-line finishing and bookletmaking solutions.
Responding to the needs of both the color market as well as the higher volume black & white cut sheet markets, the DSF-5000 can support the printed output of multiple printers without compromising print production and offers high speed, reliable feeding of a variety of substrates with both ultrasonic double and optical double detection for improved accuracy and reduced waste by preventing the processing of incorrect sets. In addition, its Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) and barcode readers offer greater versatility in handling variable and personalized print finishing.
