Duplo USA has released the DC-646 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser and it is now available in the United States, Canada and Latin America. Introduced at PRINT 13, the DC-646 is Duplo’s versatile digital color finisher providing printers the ability to create a multitude of unique full-bleed applications with more efficiency and flexibility. Performing up to 8 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 per minute and also offers optional rotary tool and cross perforating modules, both with strike-perforating capabilities, for increased versatility. With the DC-646, users can create 24-up business cards on 12” x 18” or 36-up on 14” x 26” paper sizes, slit-score greeting cards, micro-perforated coupons, direct mailers with tear-away cards, and much more.

The DC-646 features a PC Controller, enabling users to operate the system from a PC as well as create and save virtually an unlimited number of jobs on the hard drive for even faster changeovers. The DC-646 also comes built-in with a CCD scanner, making it possible to recall any job stored in memory simply by reading the printed barcode and automatically setting up the job. The scanner reads registration marks as well to correct the sheet-by-sheet image shift and deliver accurately finished pieces every time. Users can easily apply barcodes and registration marks with the EFI Fiery Command Workstation impose tool (Fiery System 10 or newer).
“We’re very excited to release the latest addition of the Duplo Slitter/Cutter/Creaser family,” comments Si Nguyen, Vice President of Sales at Duplo USA Corporation. “The DC-646 was a huge hit at PRINT 13 and sold out at the show. Customers were very impressed with the additional capabilities and its price point comparable to the DC-645 model” He adds, “In a few months, customers will be able to add folding capabilities for even more versatility.”
The DC-646 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser will be configurable with the Integrated Folding System which provides an in-line folder, creating an all-in-one solution that slits/cuts/creases and folds in a single pass.
