Advocate Printing & Publishing acquired a new Duplo 646 finishing system with all-in-one capabilities as a slitter, cutter, creaser and perforator for its production facility in Dieppe, New Brunswick.

Purchased through Sydney Stone, the mid-range Duplo DC-646 device was first launched in January 2014 to succeed the DC-645. The new version performs up to six slits, 25 cuts, and 20 creases in a single pass (compared to six slits, 15 cuts and 10 creases on the DC-645). The DC-646, according to Duplo, prevents toner cracking on fold lines at up to 30 sheets per minute.

The DC-646 has an optional rotary tool and cross-perforating modules, as well as enhanced feeding for the ability to produce business cards, without a dedicated business card module, as well as new options for perforating. With the DC-646, users can produce 24-up business cards on 12 x 18-inch sheets or 36-up on 14 x 26 sheets, as well as produce work like slit-score greeting cards, micro-perforated coupons, and direct mailers with tear-away cards.

“With other Duplo equipment at our plant in Dieppe, New Brunswick, we had confidence in the product range, and after previously reviewing the Duplo 645 at Graph Expo we recognized the additional features with this latest model and knew it was the correct solution for us,” stated Jason Hamilton, Director of Digital Operations at Advocate.

With business roots dating back to 1891, Advocate is based in Pictou, Nova Scotia, and collectively runs more than 10 printing and publishing operations in Eastern Canada.
