Why Buy the Duplo DB290 – For Operators
Absolute simplicity in motion, the Duplo DB290 perfect binding machine is a simple to operate, reliable and offers a stress-free binding partner that will increase your workflow and productivity. Fully automated adjustable side gluing, centrally clamping book carriage and nipping station which ensure perfect spine alignment on every book size are just two key features that will ensure you can rely on the DB290 to create the perfect book for you with the minimum of fuss.
Two standard modes of operation further enhance the ease of use on the Duplo DB290, a push button start system is ideal for those awkward jobs and when productivity is key simply switch over to the auto mode for high speed production. Whichever mode you choose the only reliance on the operator loading the book block and positioning the cover in the calibrated nipping station.
A major advantage of this type of perfect binder for operators is the lack of make ready or clean down requirements. Unlike PUR where you can often face lengthy make ready times and then clean down procedures, EVA binders can be switched on, heated, operated and turned off with zero make ready or clean down. Furthermore, the glue often instantly dries allowing the finished books to be handled immediately, guillotined to size and offered back to the customer.
The Duplo DB290 can also produce high-quality glue edged pads with the same ease of operation. Padding is ideal for tear-off NCR sets, visitor signing in registers, engineer job sheets and numbered dockets to name a few.
