Duplo USA Corporation, a leading manufacturer of print finishing equipment, has announced it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Photobook Technology PBT to distribute its Mitamax, Mitabook, and Mitacase products in North America. The products contribute to Duplo USA’s growing line of equipment for the on demand photo book industry.
The Mitamax is a gluing machine, which glues half-folded sheets together to build perfectly square and lay-flat book blocks. The Mitabook is a fully automatic, hardcover casing-in machine designed to economically produce short-run, hard cover books. The Mitacase is an automatic hard cover making machine. All systems are easy to operate, require little floor space, and fill the gap between semi-automatic hard cover systems and higher production equipment.
“The Mitamax, Mitabook, and Mitacase are a great fit to our product line and we are very excited to be able to offer a full line of products for hard cover applications, including lay-flat photo albums,” says Peter Tu, president of Duplo USA. “Our customers can use our Slitter/Cutter/Creasers to trim, crease, and fold the sheets, UV coat them with our Ultra 200A or Ultra 100A UV Coaters, and then glue and case them in with the Mitamax, Mitabook, and Mitacase to produce completely finished hard cover photo books on demand.”
Duplo USA will host an open house event January 23rd-25th, 2013 from 10:00am to 4:00pm in its showroom in Suwanee, Georgia, providing visitors with an opportunity to see live demonstrations of the Mitabook and Mitamax products. Visitors attending the Imaging USA photographic expo, which will be taking place on January 20-22nd in Atlanta, are invited to attend.
The open house will be held at the Duplo USA Training and Distribution Center, 100 Horizon Drive, Suwanee, Georgia 30024.
