Printing Icon of Scarborough, Ontario, installed a Duplo DPB500 perfect binder purchased through Print Digital Solutions. Owned by Readers Legacy Canada ULC, Printing Icon provides full printing services and specializes in advertising collateral, books, publications, direct marketing, stationery and corporate communications.
The fully automatic Duplo DPB500 features a single-clamp design for speeds of up to 525 cycles per hour, while operators can adjust, program and save up to 20 different jobs. Its automation, explains Duplo, makes it well suited for short-run and variable-data production.
To change format sizes, for example, operators select one of the stored memories, load the book in the clamp, and press the size change key to initiate the process. The side glue wheels, scoring wheels and cover positioning guide will automatically move into the desired position, according to the thickness of the loaded book. Once the size change is completed, covers can be loaded into the cover-feed section which provides controls where the operator can make and verify any adjustments aligning it with the nipping section.
