Santa Ana, CA - This year at Graph Expo, Duplo USA will be showcasing its growing range of booklet systems along with its popular slitting/cutting/creasing, die cutting, UV coating, and perfect binding solutions and invites you to see it all in booth #1926.

Also showing for the first time will be the highly anticipated 350R In-line Booklet System which integrates the DBM-350 Bookletmaker with the Ricoh Pro C9100/8100/7100 series of production printers. The Duplo booth will be filled with the latest in digital print finishing that visitors will not want to miss. 


NEW! 600i Booklet System

Released in June, the 600i Booklet System will take center stage at Graph Expo. The 600i Booklet System is Duplo’s newest, flagship bookletmaking solution which integrates the DBM-600 Bookletmaker with the DSC-10/60i Suction Collator. With a production speed of up to 5,200 booklets per hour, the 600i produces professional saddle, side, or corner-stitched as well as letter landscape booklets.

NEW! DSF-6000 High-Speed Sheet Feeder

Showing for the first time will be the DSF-6000 High-Speed Sheet Feeder, configured with the DBM-600 Bookletmaker. Duplo’s newest sheet feeder processes pre-collated digital or offset documents at a rate of up to 600 sheets per minute and features the PC Controller software and enhanced paper separation as well as handles paper sizes up to 14” x 20.” The DSF-6000 connects to the DBM-600 Bookletmaker or iSaddle System and can feed letter landscape applications via the optional Cover Feeder. 

NEW! 350R In-line Booklet System

In partnership with Ricoh, Duplo introduces the 350R In-line Booklet System – a reliable bookletmaking solution that integrates the Duplo DBM-350/T Bookletmaker and Trimmer with the Ricoh Pro C9100/8100/7100 series of production printers. On exhibit at the Duplo booth, the 350R In-line Booklet System will be featured with the Slit/Cut/Crease and DSS-350 Square Spine modules along with the Ricoh Pro C7110. 

Other systems on display include the iSaddle System with the DKT-200 Two-Knife Trimmer, the 350i Digital Booklet System, the 150C Booklet System, and the 150Cr Booklet System.


NEW! DC-746 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser

The DC-746 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser is the ideal companion for digital printers with medium to high production jobs. The DC-746 offers new features including optional rotary tool and cross perforating modules, both with strike-perforating capabilities, for increased versatility and a job template library for common applications. The DC-746 also features a new waste conveyor that transports the waste into an external bin, making it easy to empty without stopping productivity. 

Graph Expo will be the first time that Duplo will exhibit the DC-646 with JDF workflow, on this occasion together with HP Direct2Finish, allowing print service providers (PSPs) to produce more pages with less effort each month. Direct2Finish enables automatic submission of accurate job definition format (JDF) instructions to the DC-646, reducing make-ready and turnaround time as well as reducing the chances of waste and human error. Together, the combination of Direct2Finish and the Duplo DC-646 helps PSPs improve overall site efficiency, press productivity and application versatility. The JDF job and queue management is built directly into the PC Controller, providing the flexibility to easily switch operation between on-line JDF workflow and jobs from any other source.

Also on the show floor will be the DC-616 PRO Slitter/Cutter/Creaser and the DC-646 and DC-445 Integrated Folding Systems.
