About the Duplo DC-618 Slitter Cutter Creaser
A perfect option for the short run on-demand digital printer, the fully automated DC-618 Slitter Cutter Creaser is Duplo’s new compact, yet powerful all in one finishing solution designed for today’s digital printer. With the ability to process up to 6 slits, 30 cuts and 20 creases in a single pass, the DC-618 delivers full-bleed applications at production speeds of up to 23 sheets per minute without the white borders and toner cracking for a clean perfect finish. Bring your finishing in-house with the DC-618!
With the integration of Duplo finishers and EFI fiery digital front ends, Duplo are now pushing efficiency to the next level and offering automated imposition layout and production from pre-press, all the way through to finishing.
The Duplo DC-618 also benefits from the newly designed automatic 8-belt suction feed system ensures the consistent delivery of sheets with no risk of marking. If using digital stocks with high levels of static, the standard fit air knife can assist with sheet separation, whilst the new option of a Side Air Kit further enhances the feed capabilities on longer sheet lengths up to 1,200mm. The inclusion of the ultrasonic double feed detector ensures only one document will ever be processed at a time with any mis-feeds easily retrievable without being damaged.
The 100 mm feed pile height is complementary to the rated speed and minimises any re-load time. The combination of this capacity along with the top feeding design, means the machine offers exceptional productivity, allowing the operator to perform other tasks while the DC-618 gets on with the job.
Why Buy the Duplo DC-618 Slitter Cutter Creaser? For Business Owners
The Duplo DC-618 comes equipped with rotary slitters, a guillotine cutter and a depth-adjustable creaser; which together with the options providing perforating and scoring, offers the versatility of multiple devices in one integrated system.
The Duplo DC-618 uses a built-in CCD to read a printed barcode, the DC-618 will recall the job from memory and automatically setup, reducing changeover time and errors. In this way, varied jobs can be loaded and run automatically while the operator attends to other tasks. This automation is complemented by a second feature of the CCD to read a printed mark and compensate for any horizontal and vertical movement in the image, ensuring precision finishing everytime.
The Duplo DC-618 can further extend the possibilities with multiple finishing options that can be purchased and added to the system at any time thanks to the modular design. Optimise layout and productivity and create a wide range of high value, complex applications such as tear-off tickets or reply cards.
Modular options include a Rotary Tool Module which is automatically programmed via the integrated touch screen and allows either full length perforation or stop/start perforation down the length of the sheet. Combine this with the optional programmable Cross Perforation Tool which offers stop/start cross perforation, to create complex applications such as special offer coupons or reply cards with multiple offers contained in one card.
Other options include a Perforation/Score module which allows for full length manually positioned perforation or rotary scoring to be completed. Rotary scoring options are particularly handy when producing tall menu’s or the latest folded business cards as you can use traditional layouts to achieve these applications.
