At GRAPH EXPO 2010, Duplo USA Corporation (booth #2617) will display its newest modular finishing equipment, which offers increased automation and versatility to boost the productivity of print service providers during their post-press operations. The highlight at this year’s show is the DC-745 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser, Duplo’s fastest and most versatile all-in-one digital color finisher to date. Also showcasing will be the Duetto System 5000 bookletmaking system in-line with the new DKT-200 Two-knife Trimmer along with other key digital color finishing solutions including the DC-645 and DC-445 Integrated Folding Systems, DFS-3500 Full-Bleed Bookletmaking System, the DPB-500 PUR Perfect Binder and the new Ultra 200 UV Coater.
The DC-745 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser is Duplo’s newest and fastest all-in-one digital color finisher yet. Performing up to 10 slits, 20 cuts, and 15 creases in a single pass, the high production DC-745 eliminates white borders and toner cracking on digital color documents at speeds of up to 50 sheets per minute. Taking the success of the popular DC-645 model to the next level, it also provides users with an enhanced user-friendly PC Controller for quick job setups; optional perforation, cross perf, micro perf, half cut, and rotary score modules for added versatility; and an increased feeding capacity and elevator stacking function. The DC-745 is the perfect solution for finishing full-bleed, digital color applications ranging from business cards, greeting cards, brochures, photos, coupons, tickets, labels and much more!
Duetto System 5000 with DKT-200 Two-Knife Trimmer
Duplo’s new DKT-200 Two Knife Trimmer will be shown with the Duetto System 5000 Bookletmaking System. Ideal for high volume, full-bleed digital applications, the Duetto System 5000 configures the DBM-500/T Bookletmaker and Trimmer in-line with a DSF-2000 Sheet Feeder and two DC-10/60 Pro Collators. The ability of the DBM-500/T to handle set-by-set or sheet-by-sheet output with equal ease allows it to receive pre-collated sheets from the DSF-2000, and sets from the DC-10/60 Pro Collators, for precision folding and stitching.
With Duplo’s innovative modular configurations, the DKT-200 Two-Knife Trimmer will be incorporated within the Duetto System 5000 and connected to the DBM-500T Trimmer. Once the book is face trimmed on the DBM-500T, the DKT-200 removes the head and foot for a quality, finished book. A simple straight paper path design allows the DKT-200 to easily finish books at speeds up to 4,500 books per hour. For added versatility, print providers can add an optional gutter cutter to the DKT-200 for 2-up applications, doubling output to 9,000 books per hour while reducing print and paper costs. With complete automation, the system can be set up and running jobs in less than 5 minutes.
DC-645 Integrated Folding System
The DC-645 Integrated Folding System extends the capability of the DC-645 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser even further. Incorporating an in-line knife folder, the DC-645 Integrated Folding System not only slits, cuts, and creases but also folds digitally-printed applications in a single pass. Utilizing two knife folds, the DC-645 Integrated Folding System folds five of the most common fold types, including single, letter, Z, gate, and double parallel, along with an infinite number of custom folds or it can be bypassed for no fold applications. The finished documents are then stacked in a 15.75” capacity stacker specifically designed to neatly stack and retain even heavier jobs such as folded card stocks.
By incorporating folding into the single system operation, the DC-645 Integrated Folding System removes the bottleneck of the finishing process and allows printers to custom fold a variety of applications such as greeting cards, folded ‘tent’ business cards, brochures and much more. The entire system is programmed from the DC-645’s control panel meaning all configurations are simple to set up and easy to adjust to suit customer requirements.
