About the Duplo DC-746 Cutter Creaser
Boasting a huge range of cutting, creasing and perforating options, the Duplo DC-746 Cutter Creaser is a highly versatile system that is also fast and precise in its automatic set-up and job changeover, making sure you are never left waiting on finishing. Software included adds barcode and image recognition marks to PDF job templates at the touch of a button.
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 prepress, all the way through to finishing.
The Duplo DC-746 is the most versatile of all the Duplo DC models whilst being built to withstand the rigours of the high volume daily workload. With its powerful, heavy-duty build, high quality, motorised tooling (including a Rotary Tool Module for adding perf, skip perf, score and slit score as the sheet passes through), efficient dynamics and the innovation running through its design, the DC-746 is made to meet today’s and tomorrow’s demands.
The Duplo DC-746 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. The DC-746 also benefits from an integrated straightening table which sits between the feed head and the first slitter row to ensure perfect sheet alignment even on the most awkward of stock.
The biggest advantage of the Duplo DC-746 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. To cope with this production speed the DC-746 has been equipped with a motorised waste ejection system which allows the waste materials to be delivered into a holding box on the outside of the machine, thus allowing continuous operation.
Why buy the Duplo DC-746? For business owners
The Duplo DC-746 offers business owners a very high speed, versatile, highly productive multi-functional finishing solution that can compliment or even replace the need for a guillotine, creasing machine and separate perforator.
The Duplo DC-746 is fitted as standard with a CCD camera, which reads barcodes from printed sheets, ensuring perfect registration. Information from the barcode is also used to automatically position the DC-746’s six slitter heads, the guillotine cutter, the creasing bar and all optional tooling fitted to the machine as the sheet passes through, saving valuable make ready time.
Even greater versatility comes by way of three optional tooling modules that can be easily slotted into the Duplo DC-746. You will be able to handle a wider range of jobs through the DC-746 instead of needing additional finishing equipment or having to compromise on creative design. Operating with the full suite of standard and optional modules enables eight length-wise slits, 30 crosscuts and 20 creases in a single pass. Add to this the ability to stop perforate or rotary crease in both X & Y orientations and you have a multi-functional device that can handle the widest array of finishing requirements on the market, all at the touch of a button.
With its multi-functional capability, automatic set-up and ease of use, the DC-746 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-746? For operators
Setting up new jobs is quick and simple using the DC-746’s PC Controller software, which also has preset job templates installed. You can save up to 80 jobs in the machine’s memory, and a virtually unlimited number in the PC memory, all available for instant recall and fast changeover. 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.
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 and automation which allows the operator to perform other tasks while the DC-746 gets on with the job.
