Duplo’s Range Of New Products and Flexibile Finishing Solutions to Take Center Stage in Düsseldorf
The new belt suction feeder, integral buffer and enhanced sheet separation facilities enables consistent and reliable feeding of a variety of substrates at high speeds. The DSF-5000 can feed up to 400 sheets per minute, which is fed from a 610mm high capacity pallet style paper tray. Operators also benefit from automated job set up and changeover, as well as an intuitive, user-friendly PC interface.
To demonstrate the versatility of the DSF-5000, Duplo will showcase the Digital System 5000 Pro bookletmaking line incorporating two DSF-5000 sheet feeders in a tandem configuration as well as a new twin bin Cover Feeder, a DBM-500 Bookletmaker and Trimmer. The benefits of Duplo’s modular approach allow printers to add to the system as and when their requirements change. As a result, a solution might incorporate one DSF-5000 for high capacity feed stock or an extra DSF-5000 – a tandem system for maximizing productivity as one DSF-5000 could be running while another is re-loaded. Cover stocks could be placed in this second unit, or in the new twin-bin Cover Feed module.
The DSF-5000 can also be combined with Duplo’s versatile SCC slit, cut, crease module to the configuration, which deals with issues of trimming off full bleed print as well as managing digital print cracking problems.
New PUR DPB-500 Perfect Binder
In response to customers’ demand, at drupa, Duplo will extend its single clamp fully automatic DPB-500 Perfect Binder range by adding a PUR version, making it ideal for short to medium run perfect bound books printed digitally or on coated stocks. PUR binding provides an extremely secure result with its high pull-strength ensuring that each page is firmly bound and can be opened flat without any risk of pages becoming detached.
The closed tank system offers huge cost and productivity benefits compared to open-tank systems, as it does not require draining after each session which incurs wasted material and downtime. Just like Duplo’s standard-adhesive DPB-500 Perfect Binder, it runs at cycling speeds of up to 525 books an hour, and is capable of binding a wide range of materials with a maximum booklet size of 360 x 320mm and minimum size of 120 x 120mm. Cover sheet sizes range from 360 x 696mm and 120 x 250mm.
