Duplo USA (Santa Ana, California), a leader in digital print finishing, has announced that it will preview its new DDC-810 Digital Spot UV Coater at this year’s Dscoop event March 1-4 in at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona. During the event, Duplo (Booth 213) will give exclusive demonstrations and special pre-order offers before the official product release in May of 2017. Utilizing inkjet technology, the DDC-810 applies a gloss finish to defined areas of the substrate, giving images a raised effect with texture and depth. Its CCD camera recognition system ensures image-to-image registration and its PC Controller software offers an easy-to-use operation, said the OEM. Designed for short-run applications, the DDC-810 can process up to 21 sheets per minute (A3), accommodate UV thickness from 20 to 80 microns, and paper weights from 157 to 450 gsm (coated paper).
“There’s a lot of excitement building up around the new Duplo Digital Spot UV Coater and we’re excited to open doors to new opportunities for those printers who have wanted to add elevated spot UV embellishment to their products,” said Anthony Gandara, Product Manager at Duplo USA. “The DDC-810 is an affordable solution that will allow printers to creatively add impact and enhance the value of their printed merchandise.” Also on exhibit in the booth will be the DC-746 Integrated Folding System, Duplo’s all-in-one slit/cut/crease and fold solution, and the UD-300 On Demand Die Cutter.
