Duplo UK has launched the iSaddle Pro Digital System, which is targeted at commercial printers with high print volumes.

Duplo said the device brings saddle-stitching technology to high-volume digitally printed applications, such as A4 landscape, brochures, personalised reward statements and photo album booklets. The machine, which is available with immediate effect, combines Duplo’s new DSF-6000 sheet feeder and the iSaddle. Pricing starts from £125,000.

The DSF-6000 is also available to buy independently, for iSaddle users wishing to retrospectively fit the new sheet feeder to their device. The DSF-6000 has three times the capacity of the DSF-2200 sheet feeder.

They manufacturer said other benefits include full personalisation - as every booklet is unique, an advanced Air Management System that ensures consistent feeding on a wide variety of paper sizes, speeds of up to 600 sheets/min and ultrasonic sensors that accurately detect any feed errors.

Further more, the mach-ine, which is fully automated through PC-based job programming systems, can be set up within 60 seconds and has an integrated buffer system to ensure the high-speed productivity and control of sheets being fed into and coming off the system.
