Three reasons to buy a DC-616 Cutter Creaser
As a business owner in the printing industry, are you using more than one piece of equipment to produce your printed products? I have listed 3 reasons why it is in your best interest to combine these machines you will then maximize your staff's production, save time and increase your profit!
The first reason, and it's a big one, is Automation. With the Duplo DC-616 you can create a template library which will enable you to instantly produce common applications relating to your business. There are many applications which your business will repeatedly create everyday, so spending time setting up the same application as you did 5 times yesterday, can become a tiring and expensive task. If you also have regular customers who request the same application every time, the camera reads barcodes to recall any job stored in the memory.
With the use of registration marks the DC-616 minimise image drift in both X and Y axis helping to align them - ensuring they are all parallel to the paper path guaranteeing accurate finishing. Using automation to do most of the work reduces touch points and helps keep your production time and costs to a minimum
The DC-616 gives you the flexibility to complete short run, on demand print finishing. Why would you not combine your guillotine, perforator and creaser into one small compact machine was an option? This small but diverse machine uses a guillotine cutter, rotary slitters, and a depth-adjustable creaser meaning you get the versatility of multiple machines without the timely, manual setups of each one. The system allows you to feed different paper weights within the same job, an ultrasonic sensor detects air gaps between two sheets to eliminate a double feed occurring.
With the DC-616 you could be cutting business cards within minutes. How long would it take for someone to learn to precisely cut a job of 21up business cards? To cut down multiple handling of sheets from one machine to another, every application is finished perfectly in a single pass and all from just the press of a button.
So, if reducing your costs, cutting down your production time, increasing your return on investment and minimising errors sounds too good to be true, give the DC-616 a try, I think you will be wondering why you waited so long!
