Duplo DC-646 Slitter/Cutter/Creaser

Save up to 70% in setup time by automating job prep and eliminating manual data entry with Fiery Impose in Fiery Driven print environments. The integration between Fiery Impose and Duplo’s Slitter/Cutter/Creasers offers timesaving workflows that can be applied to both common and custom layout jobs.

For the most common jobs such as business cards or postcards, Duplo provides imposition templates to use in Fiery Impose that match the finishing templates on the Slitter/Cutter/Creaser. The finishing templates come pre-set with measurements for the margins and gutters as well as finishing sizes. The templates use barcodes and registration marks that let the Slitter/Cutter/Creaser adjust automatically without intervention.

For custom layout jobs*, users can create the new layout file on the Duplo PC controller, import it in Fiery Impose and instantly see a visual preview of finishing lines to quickly verify job designs before printing. Users can save the layout as a Fiery Impose template to automate the same type of job in the future using one-step automated workflows such as Fiery Hot Folders, Fiery Presets, Fiery JobFlow or Virtual Printers. This automated solution reduces human setup errors and accelerates turnaround times.
