Duplo DC 446 Creaser


Newly launched in 2016, this Duplo DC 446 Creaser is faster than its predecesor. The Duplo DC446 represents a quiet, easy to run solution for your creasing needs!

Prevent toner cracking and unattractive fold lines on documents with the Duplo DC-446 Creaser. A simple and affordable finishing solution no digital printer should do without, the DC-446 creases a wide range of applications at up to 60 sheets per minute. Creasing digitally-printed output prior to folding ensures a clean, professional finish and makes it easier for folding devices to bend with accuracy.

The DC-446 applies up to 20 creases in a single pass with great precision and is perfect for creating unique accordion applications and other color documents that require a fold right along the color break. Fully automatic and easy to use, the DC-446 is ideal for finishing short-run offset and digital applications including greeting cards, postcards, brochures, book covers, and more!

A number of optional features are also available to maximize its functionality. An air-knife provides additional air to improve feed consistency and reduce static problems while double-feed detectors stop the machine when two or more sheets are fed, thus preventing mis-feeds and paper jams. Additionally, slitting and perforating modules can be added to eliminate white borders and create perforated pieces. Up to three slitting and perforating modules can be installed for increased versatility.

The DC-446 can also be configured with an in-line knife folder, enabling users to crease and fold pieces in a single pass. Please refer to the Integrated Folding System page for more information.

Why buy? For business owners

The DC-446 has been designed to partner light production digital colour printing presses, though its ability to handle A4 sheets at 60 a minute lets it keep pace with more productive digital presses. Creasing is necessary to overcome toner cracking which can plague digitally printed pages and result in a quality finished product. The ability to crease up to 20 times in 0.1mm increments covers a huge range of product types that any customer might require.

Why buy? For operators

Step by step touch panel set up stores and recalls the programmes for 30 jobs to save time on repeat product types. A 3.9" feed tray capacity means the DC-446 Creaser can run unattended leaving an operator to attend to other tasks. Suction feed removes the risk of marking with an air knife to help separate sheets ahead of feeding if static is an issue. An optional ultrasonic double sheet detector prevents misfeeds. Skew and shrinkage adjustments compensate for any image placement issues.
