Duplo Extended Finishing Capabilities at Graph Expo

Friday, September 21, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

At this year's Graph Expo, Duplo USA is set to exhibit a number of new and exciting finishing solutions – showcasing more capabilities than ever before, all in one booth! Attendees are invited to stop by booth #2221 and check out the full range of solutions for the short-run to the high production printer.

SADDLE STITCHING AND BOOKLETMAKING SYSTEMS
In the bookletmaking area, visitors can expect to see a full range of solutions to meet today's digital printer demands including the recently-released DBMi Saddle System. First in its class to deliver letter landscape booklets, the DBMi combines PC-based programming and intelligent feeding with state-of-the-art scoring and folding technology to produce thicker, flatter books up to 4,500 books an hour. Three-knife trimming capabilities can be added with the optional DKT-200 Two-Knife Trimmer and gutter cutter, which can also process 2-up applications - boosting its production up to 9,000 books an hour!

On exhibit for the first time will be the 350 Digital Booklet System, featuring the new DSF-2200 Sheet Feeder and the optional DSS-350 Square Spine module with the mid-range DBM-350 Bookletmaker. Feeding up to 200 sheets per minute, the DSF-2200 Sheet Feeder comes loaded with a range of high-end features including Duplo's own belt suction feed system, front and side air separation, an anti-static device and ultrasonic double feed detection for enhanced feed reliability. It feeds increased paper sizes up to 14" x 20" (or 9.05" x 24" via optional extension tray kit) and offers a variety of options including a trail edge air kit, pre-loading kit, and barcode readers to read 1D and 2D barcodes.  

Additionally, the DFS-3500 Full-Bleed Bookletmaking System, the 500Pro Digital Booklet System, configuring the DSF-5000 Sheet Feeder with the high-end DBM-500 Bookletmaker, as well as the 120C Booklet System, incorporating the DSC-10/20 Suction Collator with the entry-level DBM-120 Bookletmaker, will be on the show floor.

DIGITAL COLOR FINISHERS
The successful DC-745 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser will be spotlighted again at Graph Expo demonstrating its newest capabilities – the strike-perforating and embossing modules! The DC-745 is Duplo's most powerful all-in-one finishing solution, offering greater speed, productivity and versatility. Performing up to 10 slits, 25 cuts, and 20 creases in one pass, this digital color finisher eliminates white borders and toner cracking on fold lines, producing professionally finished documents in a matter of minutes.

With the strike-perforating module, operators can specify where the wheels are to activate and de-activate. It can be combined with the cross-perforating module to produce "T" or "L" shape perforations in-line. The embossing module further enhances the value of printed pieces. Duplo's complete Slitter/Cutter/Creaser line will be on display including the DC-615 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser, the DC-645 Integrated Folding System, and the DC-445 Creaser.

DIE CUTTER
Highlighted will be the new UD-300 Die Cutter. Efficient for short to medium runs, the UD-300 utilizes flexible dies, which are quick and cost-effective to manufacture, to convert a wide range of paper stock up to 14" x 20" in one pass. Multiple cuts, slits, slit-scores, perforations, and window punches of any shape can be combined into a single die and up to 3,000 sheets per hour can be processed. Visitors will have the opportunity to see the diversity of intricately-shaped stationery and packaging applications that can be produced on demand.

PERFECT BINDERS
Showing for the first time in the U.S. will be the FKS PrintBind KB-4000 PUR Perfect Binder. This single-clamp perfect binder combines heavy-duty milling and notching with the strong adhesiveness of both PUR and EVA hot melt side glues to produce high quality, perfect bound books at a cycling speed of up to 200 books per hour. Books are first applied with PUR along the spine then side-glued with the fast-drying EVA, allowing books to be handled faster than traditional PUR solutions. Also on exhibit will be the DB-280 and DPB-500 Perfect Binders.

UV COATERS
Debuting at Graph Expo will be the new Ultra 100A UV Coater. Similar to the Ultra 200A model, which can too be seen at the show, the Ultra 100A is also capable of coating both sides of the sheet with a smear-free finish. Processing 13" paper widths up to 33 feet per minute, the Ultra 100A provides the perfect alternative for printers with lower volume demands.

Other products not to be missed are the Foldmaster Touchline CP375 high-speed creasing and perforating unit and CF375 high-speed creaser and folder. Also on display will be the RC-7 Round Corner Cutter, DF-1000 Air Suction Folder, 660P Hydraulic Cutter, and DP-U850 Digital Printing System as well as the CC-330 and CC-228 Card Cutters.

At the Konica Minolta Business Solutions and Ricoh booths, Duplo's Slitter/Cutter/Creasers will also be showcased in addition to their range of digital print solutions.
