The entire system is precisely operated at one station with the use of a Windows-based PC Controller. With automatic setup features, even the shortest runs can be efficiently processed to maximize profits.
The DSC-10/60i Collator has an optional bin extension kit for feeding up to a 14x24" sheet. It also has an optional intelligent feed function (IMBF) for custom feed applications. Non-collated output from an offset printer and collated output from a digital printer can be loaded and combined into a single booklet.

It is capable of producing up to 4,500 books/ hour. An optional DKT-200 two-knife trimmer and gutter cutter can be added for full-bleed in-line books and 2-up applications, further increasing output to 9,000 books/ hour. Optional three or four-stitcher head kits are also available as needed.
