Ultra 205A UV Coater
Ideal for medium to high volume production, the fully automatic Ultra 205A UV Coater provides high quality, cost-effective ultraviolet coating on documents printed on digital copiers/printers and offset presses. Set-up is easily accomplished via a unique touch screen that will permit you to do all its adjustments without a skilled operator.
The metering roller speed adjustment will enable you to evenly set how much coating should be applied and cleaning of the three rollers will also be completed automatically at the end of the production day. Fully automatic, the Ultra 205A significantly adds value to any document by adding more vibrancy and richness to its colors and hues as well as protection from scratching and fingerprints.
DSF-5000 High Speed Document Sheet Feeder
ON DEMAND will offer a preview of Duplo’s new DSF-5000, its modular high speed sheet feeder and finishing solution that can support the printed output of multiple printers without impacting on print production. An addition to the Duplo Document Sheet Feeder family and next-level option to the DSF-2000, the DSF-5000 is a higher speed, production level feeder designed with a series of enhanced benefits to give greater productivity for near-line finishing and bookletmaking solutions. The new belt suction feeder and enhanced sheet separation facilities on the DSF-5000 enables a high speed, yet consistent and reliable feeding of a variety of substrates such as fine quality and art coated paper, with little or no adjustment requirements when changing from one paper type to another. Depending on the paper size, the DSF-5000 can feed up to 400 sheets per minute.
In addition, the DSF-5000 benefits from a new advanced ultrasonic double detector which improves accuracy and reduces waste by preventing the processing of incorrect booklets and a new pallet style paper tray, capable of holding up to 24 inches of paper, which eases the delivery of printed output from the print engine.
Adding to its versatility in handling variable data and personalized print finishing, it also offers Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) and barcode readers supporting both one and 2D Datamatrix bar codes. Operator benefits include automated job setup and changeover, as well as an intuitive, user-friendly PC interface.
Commenting on the introduction of the new DSF-5000, Si Nguyen continues, “We are pleased to be able to demonstrate the versatility and high speed output of our new document sheet feeder at ON DEMAND. Its modular configuration and enhanced capabilities can offer real productivity benefits to near-line finishing, by facilitating fast yet reliable delivery of printed output.”
Shown for the first time at ON DEMAND is the newly launched DC-445 Creaser which is Duplo’s latest addition to its range of Digital Color Document Finishers. The DC-445 is a fully automatic creasing solution which can process up to 15 creases in a single pass at speeds of up to 50 sheets per minute. The unit also has a feed capacity of up to 100 mm and can handle a wide variety of substrates, including UV coated paper, and paper weights between 100 – 350 gsm (24lb. Bond – 130lb. cover).
Standard features on the DC-445 Creaser include a simple three-step adjustable creasing depth, which can be optimized according to paper type and weight, extended feed and receiving trays and user-friendly LCD display. Optional modular features that can be easily included into the Creaser unit include an Air Knife to increase feed consistency and reduce static, an Ultrasonic Double Detection Sensor to detect double feeding as well as Center Slitters and Perforator Wheels.
Si Nguyen states, “This is a great addition to our range of Digital Color Document Finishers which includes the top of the line DC-645 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser for high volume digital print finishing and the new DC-615 model.”
“The new DC-445 Creaser delivers a range of creasing solutions for creative finishing of a range of promotional and direct mail items such as flyers and brochures, as well as a number of optional functions such as perforating and cutting, which make it an extremely versatile solution.”
Also on display will be the DC-645 and DC-615 Digital Color Document Finishers which combine the functions of slitting, cutting and creasing digitally printed sheets in a single pass. Designed for shorter run digital color print, the DC-615 can handle a range of paper types and sizes and delivers accurate, professional and efficient output with minimum operator intervention. The top of the line DC-645 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser for high volume digital print finishing can also be seen in the Duplo booth as well as in the HP and Canon partner booths.
