Three reasons to buy a DC-616 Cutter Creaser

Are you a business currently investing time, money and resource in purchasing a guillotine, business card cutter, creaser or perforator? Or currently using more than one piece of equipment to produce your printed products. Here are 3 reasons why combining these machines could save time, increase revenue and maximise staff productivity.


The first reason, and it’s a big one, is Automation. 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. With the Duplo DC-616 you can create a template library which will enable you to instantly produce common applications relating to your business. 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.

The DC-616 uses registration marks to minimise image drift in both X and Y axis helping to align them and ensuring they are all parallel to the paper path to guarantee accurate finishing. Having automation to do most of the work reduces touch points and helps keep your production time and costs to its lowest level.


Are you struggling to find room for your guillotine, perforator and creaser? We’re not surprised. Having all these individual machines can take up valuable space so, if by combining these into one small compact machine was an option, why would you not?

This small but diverse machine uses rotary slitters, a guillotine cutter and a depth-adjustable creaser meaning you get the versatility of multiple machines without the timely, manual setups of each one. To allow 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. The DC-616 gives you the flexibility to complete short run, on demand print finishing.

Minimal Training

How long would it take for someone to learn to precisely cut a job of 21up business cards? With the DC-616 you could be cutting business cards within minutes. 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 cutting down your production time, reducing your costs, minimising errors and increasing your return on investment, sounds like you’ve hit the jackpot, the DC-616 could be the perfect solution for you.
