Press release from the issuing company

Santa Ana, Calif. – Duplo USA Corporation, the leading provider of innovative print finishing solutions, will be on the show floor at PRINTING United in booth #8408 exhibiting a wide selection of fully automated and precision finishing products with its print embellishment, specialty finishing and packaging solutions at the front and center. Experience the touch and feel of real life applications, learn how to make a profit from them, and then see how the same applications can be finished with efficiency - all right inside the Duplo booth.

Intelligent Print Embellishment Workflow
Duplo USA has partnered with Electronics for Imaging, Inc. (EFI) and Canon USA to bring an intelligent print embellishment workflow to the booth that automates processes from prepress all the way to finishing. EFI® Fiery® digital print server and workflow automation software will be utilized to drive the Canon imagePRESS C910 for printing, the DDC-810 Raised Spot UV Coater for embellishment, and the Slitter/Cutter/Creasers for finishing. Fiery JobFlow™ greatly improves efficiency by reducing the number of clicks required to prepare the CMYK and spot layer files for both printing and finishing. Fiery Impose streamlines the process by applying imposition, barcodes and registration marks for Duplo’s finishing devices. Stop by the booth to learn how to speed up productivity for high profit, embellished applications.

Session Track: Developments in Finishing for Commercial Printing
Rick Salinas, Vice President of Marketing at Duplo USA, is part of a blue-ribbon panel discussion that will discuss developments in both analog and digital finishing technologies that are changing the commercial printing playing field and opening avenues of opportunity for enterprising printers. Join us on October 23rd from 1:00 – 1:40PM in room C144.

Solutions on Exhibit

DDC-810 Raised Spot UV Coater
A value-added application with spot coating, texturing, and tactile effects sells itself. Business cards become premium when an overlay of clear gloss is added. Direct mail postcards and promotional pieces become irresistible when texture is added to the dimples of a golf ball or to the ultra-fine white sand of an upscale resort. The DDC-810 Raised Spot UV Coater is a design-driven solution that utilizes 600 x 600 dpi inkjet technology, UV lamp curing and camera image registration to deliver production output with texture and depth. Join us for live product and workflow demonstrations to learn how to drive profitable growth with print embellishment.
