Imaginative Group of Windsor, Ontario, has installed a series of finishing equipment, purchased through Sydney Stone, including a new DBM 150 booklet-maker with face-trimmer and a Morgana 104 Square Fold system.
“We are excited add to our capabilities with this new booklet-making solution," stated Greg Plante, owner of Imaginative Group, which is described as specializing in the combination of print, fulfillment, design, marketing, Web and media services. “The ability to quickly and efficiently produce a saddle-stitched book off our digital print engine of such exceptional quality and the look of a perfect-bound book is what drove us to this solution from Duplo and Morgana.”
The Duplo DBM 150 booklet-maker and DBM 150 face trimmer were launched at Graph Expo in late 2013 as an upgrade from the Duplo DBM 120 booklet-making system. The new features of the Duplo DBM 150 include fully automated production from CD size up to 12 x 18 sheet books, 25 sheet capacities on both the booklet-maker and face-trimmer and a revised staple head system.
As with the Imaginative Group installation, the booklet-maker can be used in-line with a Duplo collator or sheet feeder, while it can also be handfed as a pre-collated set. The Morgan 104 Square Fold system can then be added inline to produce a square back book that replicates the look of perfect bound products.
