The fully automated DC-648 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser is Duplo’s newest mid-range solution. With its ability to slit/cut/crease and perforate digitally-printed applications in one pass, the DC-648 delivers professionally-finished jobs up to 40 sheets per minute. Cut job costs by doing away with time-consuming set ups and make-ready times. Finish jobs in quick turnarounds. Incredibly efficient and easy to use, the DC-648 produces a wide range of full-bleed applications from 24-up business cards to invitations and tickets on demand.
Cut job costs by doing away with time-consuming set ups and make-ready times. With the DC-648, you can efficiently operate the system from a PC station (sold separately). The PC Controller software features an enhanced interface and makes it easy to program jobs for multiple-up finishing with up to 8 slits, 30 cuts and 20 creases. Save time by storing virtually an unlimited number of jobs on the hard drive and recall them when needed. Use the job template library and sample PDFs to ensure margins and gutters are set correctly for optimal finishing. Alternatively, the LCD color touchscreen control panel can be utilized to program and store up to 250 jobs in memory.
Automating the finishing process allows your operator to focus on other tasks. Equipped with rotary slitters, a guillotine cutter, and a depth-adjustable creaser – the DC-648 eliminates the need for multiple devices and set ups. Margins and gutters are trimmed horizontally by the slitter and vertically by the cutter then deposited into the waste bin. Only the finished pieces are delivered on the exit tray. The internal conveyor transports all waste into an external bin, making it easy to empty when needed. Creasing digitally-printed jobs such as greeting cards, book covers, and brochures prior to folding prevents toner cracking and unattractive fold lines. The creaser utilizes male and female matrix channels to create a hinge along the sheet to be folded with ease. Use the adjustable 3-step crease depth or the new width selectable creaser tool to optimize performance when processing thicker stock up to 400 gsm.
