With the digital print market growing daily, print service providers are experiencing that while their short-run jobs are increasing, the quantities per order are shrinking. Providers need to deliver in faster turnaround times while generating higher revenues and profits, and the need for high speed and quick changeovers are more important now than ever in today’s on demand environment. Designed to do just that, the DC-745 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser:
• Finishes jobs at fast speeds of up to 50 sheets per minute.
• Reads and processes barcodes and registration marks at
up to 40 sheets per minute.
• Uses the barcode reader to automatically recall preset
jobs, set up the system, and read the registration mark
to adjust for the sheet-by-sheet image shift, finishing each
piece accurately every time.
• Can store and recall an infinite number of jobs when
using the standard PC Controller, enabling users to
perform changeovers in less than 20 seconds.
Among the key features of the DC-745 are its increased feed capacity and improved feeding system. An almost 6-inch capacity on both the feeding and receiving ends enables users to run jobs continuously with minimal reloading and unloading required. Sheets
are fed with Duplo-patented technology using 12 feed belts to ensure consistency and 10 registration belts to help maintain the sheets aligned parallel to the paper path. Also new to the DC-745:
• Elevator Stacker – Ideal for smaller documents, such as business cards and postcards, this 3.5-inch capacity stacker automatically lowers as the finished pieces are delivered, keeping them neatly stacked and organized. The elevator stacker holds pieces as small as 2” x 2” and is easily removed to accommodate larger documents.
• Waste Chopper – To prevent the waste bin from filling up
prematurely, the waste chopper cuts down the margins
and gutters into even smaller pieces reducing downtime
Ease of Use
The DC-745 comes included with the PC Controller software package, which allows users to operate the system from a PC via USB interface. By using the wizard, operators can create new jobs, make adjustments, and save an unlimited number of jobs on the hard drive for quick and easy recall. The PC Controller drives any function of the DC-745 such as start/ stop, processing tests, and setting the counter.
The versatility of the DC-745 has been truly extended with a variety of new optional scoring and perforating modules, making it possible to quickly enhance its capabilities. The DC745 provides two areas where operators can mix and match any two optional modules to meet the requirements of more complex jobs. It is this type of high versatility that enables users to truly get creative with their designs and expand their product offerings. Add any of the following options and the DC-745 becomes the single most versatile finishing solution.
• The Rotary Tool Module offers two independently
adjustable rotary tool slots, which allow users to easily
switch between scoring, perforating, micro-perforating,
and slit-scoring while using the same module.
• The Cross-Perforating Module* adds a perforation across
the width of the sheet, perpendicular to the paper path.
Each blade can be customized to perforate only certain
parts of the sheet.
• The Strike-Perforating Module* allows operators to specify
where the wheels are to activate and de-activate.
Combining this with the cross-perforating module allows
users to produce a “T” or “L” shape perforation in-line.
• Additional Slitting Modules. Each slitting module has two
independent sets of slitters. When installing two optional
slitting modules at a time, users can process a maximum of
10 slits [6 standard slitters + 2 slitters (optional slit module
1) + 2 slitters (optional slit module 2)]. Additional gutter
deflectors are required
