About the Duplo DF1300L Paper Folding Machine
The DF-1300L is positioned between Duplo’s friction feed paper folders for the office market, and SRA3 format suction folders commonly found in small commercial printers. Combining the compact footprint and ease of use automation of its lesser brothers, together with air suction feeding essential for handling digital print, the DF-1300L compliments the growth in features and print quality on entry level presses, that have brought new levels of affordable production to in-house and small digital print shops. It is the ability to handle ‘Long A3’ format banner sheets that makes this product unique in its class, allowing marketing departments and small print production sites to stretch their creativity and variety of applications they can produce.
The DF-1300L is user friendly and has smart features such as intelligent paper size detection and automatic plate setting that make for fast and accurate set up. This is also the only table-top suction folder in the market with Optical Double Feed Detection, while suction feeding helps avoid marking and miss-feeds caused by static, further adding to efficiency and quality of folding.
The new and improved high powered fan housed within the DF-1300L folder makes all the difference! This high velocity fan creates a concentrated vacuum that can lift a wide array of media types, even when they are statically charged from the digital print process. Sheets are lifted from the top using air, avoiding any rubbing or marking. Further advantages of this fan system is the quietness of operation, much quieter than the compressor pumps usually found in suction-fed systems, making this the quietest such folder in the market.
There are six pre-loaded folding styles, giving you plenty of options, and the DF-1300L automatically sets the fold position for each, as well as automatically detecting standard paper sizes such as A3, B4, A4, B5, A5 and A6. Non-standard paper sizes are input manually, allowing fold positions to be adjusted.
