Feature: Duplo's DBM-600

 

The early days of bookletmaking were collating sheet after sheet carefully around a table until it stacked into a book. We have come a long way since those days with bookletmaking machines.

 

Today’s feature is Duplo’s DBM-600 Bookletmaker. It has evolved a great deal since its first versions:

Productivity has obviously increased over the years—from 3,200 maximum sets we can now produce up to 5,200 sets per hour. But for today we want to take a look at DBM-600’s other features and specifications, not just its increase in output.

 

The DSC-10/60i Collator

With this collator, unlike its predecessors, there is no need for any additional electrical requirements since it uses its own air pump. Each bin can also have its own air settings, allowing for a more customized operation.  Moreover, the vacuum box is 3.5” x 8” wide, giving a much better feed performance for curled paper.

 

Bigger Widths and Lengths

As highlighted by the table above, the DBM-600 has wider and longer fold, stitch and finished size capabilities, allowing for a bigger range in the type of paper it can collate.

 

Automatic adjustments

The fold roller gap and the trimmer transport belt gap now automatically adjust to a booklet’s number of sheets and thickness.

 

Trimmer

There is an alternate exit path to non-folded jobs so there is no need to disconnect and remove the trimmer.

 

Paper solutions

There are no additional accessories needed for non-standardized paper and there is now an easier access to paper paths for an operator to remove misfed sheets for maintenance.

 

Touch-screen controls

Cooler and definitely makes programming and adjustments easier.

 

Duplo DBM-600, aside from being faster and more productive, also makes an operator’s life easier with the added and upgraded features. Productivity and ease of operation are nothing like how it was before!
