About the Duplo DC-516 Production Card Cutter
The Duplo DC-516 introduces a new concept to print finishing, a ‘building block’ which can be configured and ADAPTED to target specific tasks, reducing the stress points in the production workflow.
The Duplo DC-516 has the speed to tackle manually intensive finishing tasks or peaks in production, with the versatility to streamline pain points across your workflow. The ability to finish completely different jobs with efficiency and consistency, makes it the ideal companion for demanding digital print environments.
The DC-516 can be dedicated to a single print finishing application but, that does not stop it from being adaptable. Streamline and load balance your workflow for other applications by inserting different inter-changable modules into the DC-516, and confidently meet your deadlines.
The Duplo DC-516 is designed with a single vision, to remove problem areas from your print production. Don’t think of the Duplo DC-516 as just another finishing device, this machine has the power and versatility to really make a difference to your production workflow and completely remove bottlenecks whilst adding new revenue streams.
The Duplo DC-516 benefits from the same newly designed automatic 8-belt suction feed system as the other models in the DC range and 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. The inclusion of the ultrasonic double feed detector paired to the reject tray ensures only one document will ever be processed at a time with any errors easily retrievable without damage or a cease in production via the integrated reject tray in the lower part of the machine.
Why buy the Duplo DC-516? For business owners
The Duplo DC-516 offers business owners a ultra high speed, versatile, highly productive adaptable finishing solution that can compliment your existing finishing machinery, even if you already have similar devices such as the Duplo DC-646i Pro.
The biggest advantage of a module based device such as the Duplo DC-516 is productivity speeds, the DC-746 is the fastest multi-functional finishing solution in the world and boasts process speeds of up to 50 sheets per minute, compared to the DC-516 however, the DC-746 seems tame. The Duplo DC-516 offers real world production speeds of up to 6,000 sheets per hour, that equates to 100 sheets per minute, twice the speed of the DC-746.
Ensure your printed application is cut correctly, everytime! Duplo’s image registration techology reads the registration mark on the printed sheet and makes fines adjustment to avoid any image drift that may have occurred during the print process.
With its multi-functional capability, ease of setup and use, the DC-516 allows you to produce jobs quickly and with fewer machines and fewer operators. Your press operator can keep the press running while also reducing bottlenecks in finishing, making you more productive and more profitable.
Why buy the Duplo DC-516? For operators
Setting up new jobs is quick and simple using the DC-516’s intuitive LCD display whilst the slitting modules are all preset and simply drop into place. Simple programming of sheet lengths or cut/crease positions are completed in seconds meaning very little make ready time and ultimately better productivity.
The 350 mm high capacity feed hopper 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 and automation which allows the operator to perform other tasks while the DC-516 gets on with the job. Run your workflow faster and for longer periods, without any interruptions. The long conveyor also separates your job batches making it easier for you to collect and package each job individually.
You can save up to 250 jobs in the machine’s memory, all available for instant recall and fast changeover with differing modules should you need them. For extra protection, repeat jobs or important work can be locked to prevent accidental overwriting.
As with all of Duplo’s creasing models the crease tool is electronically adjustable for pressure and the system incorporates two speed settings to ensure it can handle all stock types with effortless ease and with zero physical changes by the operator. The cross guillotine blade is self sharpening so requires virtually zero maintenance and can cut repeatedly for up to a million cuts without the need for replacement thanks to the shear action design.
