NO MANUAL SET UPS

Cut job costs by doing away with time-consuming setups and make-ready times. With the DC-618, you can efficiently operate the system from a PC station (sold separately). The PC Controller software features a newly enhanced interface and makes it easy to program jobs for multiple-up finishing with up to 6 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.

AUTOMATED REGISTRATION& CHANGEOVERS

Reduce downtime between jobs by adding a bar code and registration marks. When reading the bar code, the built-in CCD scanner can automatically recall and changeover the job in an instant without any intervention required. The CCD scanner can also read the registration marks on every sheet to compensate for any shrinkage and image shift, in both horizontal and vertical directions,on the fly.The DC-618 utilizes Duplo’s signature air suction belt feed system, which feeds from the top of the stack to minimize scuffing and reduces static between the sheets.The ultrasonic double feed sensor detects when two or more sheets have been fed and its soft sponge rollers allow you to finish raised spot UV coated applications with confidence.

PRECISION FINISHINGSECOND TO NONE

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-618 offers the versatility of multiple devices in one.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 onto the exit tray.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 crease width tool to optimize performance when processing thicker stock up to 400 gsm

AUTOMATE PREPRESS & FINISHING WITH FIERY IMPOSE

Save up to 70% in set up time by automating job preparation and eliminating manual data entry with Fiery Impose® in Fiery Driven™ print environments. For common jobs, such as business cards, Duplo provides imposition templates to use in Fiery Impose that match the finishing templates. For custom layout jobs, create anew layout file on the PC Controller, import it into Fiery Impose and see a preview of the finishing lines to verify job designs before printing.This integration allows you to easily input the barcodes and registration marks for the DC-618 to read. Create a time saving workflow that reduces errors and accelerates turnaround times. Download the how-to guides and templates at fiery.efi.com/htg-impose-duplo.

INCREASE VERSATILITY WITH PERFORATION MODULES

Enhance the capabilities of your DC-618 by adding up to two optional modules. Combine the Rotary Tool and Cross Perforation to produce tickets, coupons, and reply cards with T- or L-shape perforations. • Manual Perforation Module performs continuous perforations along the length of the sheet. Ideal for coupon and ticket applications. • Rotary Tool Module performs perforations, micro-perforations, and scores along the length of the sheet. Tools are positioned automatically and can perform strike perforations. • Cross Perforation Module performs perforations and micro- perforations along the width of the sheet. Tools are positioned automatically and can perform strike perforations.
