SHOW OVERVIEW RELEASE
May 3-16 in Duesseldorf, Germany
The very latest in Print Finishing Systems will be demonstrated at the Duplo International Stand B53 in Hall 13. (Also for more information follow the #DuploDrupa on Twitter). By increasing the company's footprint at DRUPA 2012 by 50%, it gives an even greater breadth of finishing equipment and in particular three examples of Duplo's newly launched DBMi Saddle System.
Duplo shares the space alongside its valued German distributor FKS and eye catching overhead signage indicate the sections for Bindery, Saddle Stitching and Digital Finishing.
The new DBMi Saddle System provides Book production for both Digital and Offset presses and with fast "make-ready" times of approximately 60 seconds and book thicknesses up to 120 pages it accommodates a large variety of formats including the increasingly popular A4 landscape size, right down to formats as small as 90mm x 75mm.
Duplo's DBMi Saddle System incorporates the latest technology allowing the totally automatic set up of all book parameters to be accurately and precisely registered. Up to four Hohner heads in either flat or loop configurations are automatically positioned together with wire stitching sensors to ensure that a correct book is produced every time. This product is being launched with the brand new DSC -10/60i suction collating towers, considered to be the heart of the system, to provide accurate and consistent feeding of all paper stocks from 50 - 300gsm.
DC-745 Production Colour Finisher with Integrated Folding System is the latest multi-function finishing machine in Duplo's range designed for high volume digital colour print. Automated Precision is exemplified by the integrated control provided in one pass for cutting, creasing and perforating operations in one pass. Also featured is slit-scoring which is very popular for professional quality greetings cards. Duplo will be showing for the first time a number of further enhancements to the range which include Strike Perforation (for stop/start perforating ideal for tear -out coupons and tickets), Embossing and Die-Cutting, and the Integrated Folding System which is the final step in complete single pass production of folded leaflets, greetings cards and mailing pieces.
Digital System 5000 Pro - a high performance digital bookletmaker - accepts sets of sequential printed sheets directly from a digital press then creases, slits, stitches, folds and trims to produce a complete high quality finished booklet in one pass.
It includes the high speed 400 sheets a minute Document Sheet Feeder 5000 which can merge digital and offset, mono and colour printed pages into one complete booklet. Popular with commercial printers producing high volumes of digital print, the combination of barcode control with job report and auditing features make this system particularly attractive for producing high-value personalised booklets such as financial investment, insurance and pension policies.
For ultimate productivity, the machine has pallet loading compatibility with HP Indigo and Xerox iGen presses.
Ultra 200A is suitable for both digital and offset environments. When Gloss, Matt or Silk or Satin finishes are required then UV coating continues to be an increasingly popular and less expensive alternative to lamination. The heavy duty Ultra 200A is operated by a simple key pad control and offers many significant benefits, including a long internal conveyor for improved double sided coating quality, and a double sheet detection system. A fully automatic cleaning process and an enclosed UV lamp chamber provides for a quick and safe operation at all times.
