Also on display is the DC-445 Integrated Folding System, combining the slitting, perforating and creasing capabilities of the DC-445 Creaser with the in-line knife folder.
DFS-3500 Full-Bleed Bookletmaking System
The DFS-3500 Bookletmaking System provides an affordable solution for completely finishing full-bleed booklets in a single pass using one system. Ideal for short-run applications, the system integrates the stitching, folding, and trimming capabilities of the mid-range DBM-350/T Bookletmaker and Trimmer with the slitting and creasing functionalities of the DC-445 Creaser. The DBM-350’s ability to handle set-by-set and sheet-by-sheet output combined with the DC-445 to eliminate toner cracking on digital applications make it a perfect solution for printers transitioning from offset to digital.
The fully-automatic DBM-350 Bookletmaker/Trimmer fits between Duplo’s established entry-level bookletmaker DBM-120/T and its high-end counterpart DBM-500/T, providing an alternative for varying production and budget requirements. Offering stitching heads, speeds of up to 3,000 books an hour, and a fully automated set-up, the DBM-350/T is an extremely productive and professional solution. The modular design of the bookletmaker allows it to accommodate a range of applications such as CD and DVD booklets, when using an optional small book kit, to 5.5” x 8.5” to 8.5” x 11” finished booklets of up to 80 pages.
DPB-500 PUR Perfect Binder
The DPB-500 PUR Perfect Binder is ideal for short to medium runs of perfect bound books with digitally-printed or coated stocks. With superior lay flat qualities compared to hot melt binders, PUR binding provides an extremely secure result with its high pull-strength ensuring that each page is firmly bound with minimal risk of pages becoming detached. The closed tank system offers huge cost and productivity benefits compared to open-tank systems, as it does not require draining after each session which incurs wasted material and downtime. The closed tank system also prevents operator exposure to PUR fumes making for a safer and cleaner work environment.
Running at speeds up to 360 books an hour, it is capable of binding a wide range of materials with a maximum book size of 14.17” x 12.60” and minimum size of 4.72” x 4.72”. Cover sheet sizes range from 4.72” x 9.84” and 14.17” x 27.40”.
The versatility of the fully automated DPB-500 PUR 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.
Ultra 200 UV Coater
The Ultra 200 is Duplo’s newest UV Coater model. A perfect alternative to the fully automatic Ultra 145A and Ultra 205A, the semi-automated Ultra 200 offers printers a user-friendly, affordable solution for their UV coating needs. Adding a superior glossy or satin finish to both offset and digitally-printed documents, made notably possible by the increased distance between the coating roller and the curing UV lamp, the Ultra 200 quickly adds value to any document as it enhances its color vibrancy and richness. User-friendly and with a small footprint, it also features an automatic cleaning function and fast setup and warm up time. On display with the optional, high-capacity sheet feeder, the Ultra 200 applies ultraviolet coating to a wide range of documents, including book covers, postcards, brochures, business cards, and more of up to 20” x 20” in size.
