Duplo has named its first UK customer for the DC-746 IFS, a multifinisher complete with an Integrated Folding System, as Commercial printer, BCQ. The Integrated Folding System (IFS) enhancement was introduced at Duplo’s Summer Festival, which was where BCQ Managing Director Chris Knowles first saw the machine.
The system eliminates the need for a separate paper folding machine and enables users to cut, crease, perforate and fold digitally-printed sheets in a single pass. It automatically folds sheets up to 350gsm that have been cut, creased and perforated, applying one of six common fold patterns, before stacking. This helps remove a bottleneck in the finishing process that occurs when setting up separate jobs. It is suited to the production of brochures, menus, greeting cards, tent cards, invitations and newsletters.
Chris Knowles, Managing Director of BCQ in Buckingham said, “we evaluated the market in terms of digital finishing equipment, and found that in addition to the full automation, high productivity and quality, it also provided us with additional versatility. It’s just what we needed as we continue to expand across our markets. We’re delighted.”
Peter Jolly, Duplo UK Managing Director added, “this is another great addition to our portfolio and will enable customers to improve the efficiency of their operations. Eliminating a separate process not only streamlines the workflow but also supports faster turnaround times.”
