Duplo’s Range Of New Products and Flexibile Finishing Solutions to Take Center Stage in Düsseldorf
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 DBM 350/T Mid-Range Bookletmaker
Duplo will also use drupa to introduce a new fully-automatic mid-range bookletmaker/trimmer which 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.
Concludes Si Nguyen, product marketing manager at Duplo USA Corporation: “We’re delighted with our wide range of new product innovations and look forward to demonstrating their versatility and modularity at drupa. While digital technology will shape the future of print, offset is here to stay for a long time. As a result, in today’s competitive print environments it is crucial for printers to use equipment that is capable of handling a mixed workload in order to stay ahead of the competition. The additions to our already wide product portfolio mean that customers can choose the right tool for the right job to maximize productivity while minimizing cost and investment.”
