Marketing Service Providers Streamline Finishing with Duplo Slitter/Cutter/Creasers
WINTER PARK, FL, and BRYAN, TX—February 11, 2015—Duplo USA announces recent installations of its slitter/cutter/creasers.
Media Tech Plus, in Winter Park, FL, recently installed the Duplo DC-616 PRO slitter/cutter/creaser. Designed to remove white borders and prevent toner cracking on digital color documents, the DC-616 PRO processes multiple slits, cuts and creases in a single pass. Additionally, users can apply up to two perforations along the length of the sheet with the standard perforation unit. “We used to cut on a guillotine cutter, and perforating and scoring was done on a separate machine,” explained Rafael Otero, manager at Media Tech Plus. “The DC-616 PRO has streamlined our process and allowed us to be more efficient. We use it for business cards, tri-fold cards, brochures and perforating CD tray cards and some contact forms. The possibilities with the DC-616 PRO are endless and we are constantly looking for new ways to streamline our production process.” Media Tech Plus is a marketing service provider helping customers integrate digital media into cross media marketing campaigns.
AlphaGraphics, in Bryan, TX, has added the Duplo DC-646 slitter/cutter/creaser to their shop. With the DC-646, AlphaGraphics has the ability to finish unique full-bleed applications with more efficiency and flexibility. “The DC-646 has cut down the number of touches required for small jobs, resulting in faster turnaround times and reduced costs,” commented Russell Price, president of AlphaGraphics. Performing up to eight slits, 25 cuts and 20 creases in a single pass, the DC-646 eliminates white borders and prevents toner cracking on fold lines up to 30 sheets/min. and also offers optional rotary tool and cross perforating modules, both with strike-perforating capabilities, for increased versatility. “The majority of jobs done on the DC-646 are business cards. Previously these had to be taken to a cutter where they would sit until we had a large number of orders and then they would all be cut down. Now they are done by the digital operator,” added Price. AlphaGraphics is a global leader in marketing and print communications. Each AlphaGraphics center is locally owned and offers products from direct mail campaigns and brochures to mobile sites.
