Duplo USA Corp. will exhibit an array of finishing and print embellishment solutions and production workflows at Print 18, saying print providers will be able to automate prepress tasks involved in a production workflow by integrating EFI’s Fiery JobFlow workflow automation software with the DDC-810 Raised Spot UV Coater and the DC-746/DC-646 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser.
JobFlow aims to reduce the number of clicks required to prepare the CMYK and spot layer files for printing and finishing by streamlining the process through imposition, barcodes and registration marks for Duplo’s finishing devices. Fiery Impose will also be featured in DC-746 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser demonstrations to show how operators can use templates and create custom layouts for automating future jobs.
The DDC-810 Raised Spot UV Coater, a design-driven solution that utilizes 600 x 600 dpi inkjet technology, UV lamp curing and camera image registration to deliver production output with texture and depth. The new Variable Coating Barcode Kit adds variable capabilities for images and text. With this option, the DDC-810 can read 1D or 2D barcodes on each sheet and automatically load the pre-ripped spot UV layer file, Duplo explains.
Suitable for high production printers, the DC-746 Integrating Folding System is an all-in-one digital colour finisher that slits, cuts, creases and folds applications up to 14” x 26” in a single pass. It also offers optional rotary tool and cross perforation modules, with strike perforating capabilities, for increased versatility. Meanwhile, ideal for higher production environments with fixed jobs, the DC-516 Pro Multi-Finisher features a feed capacity of 14” and delivers at speeds up to 100 sheets per minute. It performs up to 20 creases in a single pass and comes with a dual creasing tool for positive and negative patterns.
The 600i Booklet System is Duplo’s flagship solution designed for high quality saddle, side, or corner-stitched booklets as well as letter landscape applications. See it in its Duetto configuration with both the DSC-10/60i Collator and the DSF-6000 Sheet Feeder. Additionally on the floor will be the iSaddle System, the 350i Digital Booklet System, and the 150C Booklet System.
Other solutions on display include the 486P Electric Cutter; the Ultra 200 Pro UV Coater; the DF-1200, DF-980 and DF-970 Tabletop Folders; and the CF375 Touchline high-speed creaser/folder and CP375 DUO Touchline creaser/perforator.
