About the Duplo 150 Digital Booklet System
Duplo’s 150 Digital Booklet Maker is the combination of the world’s smallest fully automatic booklet maker, the DBM-150 with the new generation DSF-2200 sheet feeder. It is an ideal near-line solution for low to mid volume digitally printed sheets. This system is configured specifically to meet the ever changing demands of today’s digital printer and is designed to take printed output from multiple sources. The new ASM350 Squareback module can also be added to offer the ultimate quality finish to your professional booklet. Duplo has bundled the features of the big booklet makers into this uniquely compact system.
Why buy the Duplo 150DBS? For business owners
The 150 Digital System is an extremely compact, modular system combining sheet feeder, booklet maker and trimmer with the option of the ASM350 Squareback unit. It provides features such as job integrity (for confidence that production is correct), fast operation and two feed trays (to allow the merging of differently finished stocks). Being a modular system, Duplo has a range of alternative feeding and finishing devices that provide the business owner with the opportunity to upgrade or change devices as needs change and business develops.
A critical feature for personalised and variable data print jobs is the barcode reading capability of the 150 Digital Booklet System. It has Optical Mark Recognition and an optional Barcode Kit that provides two readers for each tray on the DSF-2200 feeder to ensure accuracy and integrity in data-driven applications.
Why buy the Duplo 150DBS? For operators
Set up for jobs is automatic via the dedicated PC Controller. Operators can store and recall regular jobs and changeover without needing any tools. Where jobs include different paper weights, these are easily handled due to the DSF-2200 sheet feeder’s Ultrasonic Sensor technology, which detects double sheet feeds. There is also an infinite job memory so you can store all your previous jobs for instant recall and setup, ideal for the short run digital market where volumes can be low but with lots of different jobs.
Work with difficult paper stocks and be certain of optimum paper feeding reliability, thanks to the DSF-2200 sheet feeder’s 8-belt feeding mechanism and three individual DC fans on each bin. These provide suction for feeding plus both front and side air to separate the sheets, all controlled by the operator.
A key advantage of the Duplo 150 Digital Booklet System is its ability to run your book inner section separately from your book covers. During the print process if you print the entire job with the book covers in collated order, which are normally a heavier stock, the print engine slows down to produce the cover due to the thicker materials needing to be processed at a higher heat setting, this delays production.
Furthermore, because the covers are then collated in to the printed stack you are prevented from applying extra effects such as laminating or foiling. The Duplo 150 Digital Booklet Maker utilises two feed stations, one for the covers and the other for the book block, this allows you to apply extra finishes to the covers whilst the inner book blocks are being printed, thus streamlining your production processes.
The system can finish up to 2400 books per hour without operator intervention or any wastage. Moreover the feed trays on the DSF-2200 can be utilised in five different ways for optimum efficiency.
