Duplo releases a faster, more versatile single-pass slitter/cutter/creaser

The Duplo DC-618 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser.

Duplo USA’s DC-618 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser is the newest addition to the OEM’s line of fully automated digital finishers characterized by their precision, reliability and productivity. Offering significant enhancements over its predecessor (the DC-616 Pro), the DC-618 can deliver output at faster speeds and on heavier stocks. Duplo also gave the PC Controller software and LCD control panel interfaces a “facelift” to make them more intuitive and more user-friendly for in-plants and commercial printers looking to automate their short-run finishing.

With the ability to perform up to 6 slits, 30 cuts and 20 creases in a single pass, it can produce applications such as business cards, postcards, brochures and book covers with a full-bleed finish. Processing speed has been boosted from 10 sheets to 23 sheets per minute, and paperweight specifications have increased from 350 to 400 gsm. The DC-618 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser comes with standard features including an automatic barcode and registration-mark scanner, ultrasonic double-feed detection, and long paper tray.
