The Duplo DBM-120 is a highly versatile bookletmaker capable of standalone/hand-fed operation or connection to a choice of friction or suction collators and Duplo's DSF-2000 digital printed sheet feeder. The operating speed is up to 2,400 booklets-per-hour and most of the setup is automatic making this a perfect machine for short-run production.

Production speeds of 2,400 A5 booklets per hour are possible when online to a Duplo collator. Productivity is further maintained by the high level of automation in the setup process which ensures minimal manual intervention. A built-in corner/side staple facility allows the operator to perform these functions without removing attachments further improving overall productivity.

Changing between different booklet sizes takes just seconds. Simply make the selection on the control panel or recall one of the 13 memories and the DBM-120 will automatically move the side guides. The staple positions can be moved manually if required.

20 sheets of 80gsm paper can be handled making A4 booklets from 8 to 80 pages long! The machine will automatically staple to the correct depth once the operator has input the number of sheets into the machine so a strong bind is assured no matter the thickness.

The DBM-120 is capable of side stapling, corner stapling, folding and saddle stitching so just about any finishing requirement is possible.

A fine adjustment mode allows for correct positioning of the staple, fold and trim positions which can be stored for future recall in any of the 13 memories. In addition, staple heads are fitted with "out of staple" sensors to prevent unstapled booklet errors.

When producing thicker books it is often necessary to trim the wide edge to ensure the booklet has a flat finish.

The Duplo DBM-120T is an optional trimmer unit that will cut this edge as the book is ejected from the bookletmaker ensuring a more presentable appearance.

As standard, the Duplo DBM-120 is capable of producing booklets from A3 to A5 in size.

The optional small booklet kit enables the DBM-120 to handle sheet sizes down to A5 to create MINATURE booklets as small as A6 (finished size).

The Duplo DBM-120 booketmaker and DBM-120T trimmer can be connected online to a range of Duplo friction and suction collators and digital sheet feeders enabling collating and bookletmaking to take place on a single line The DBM-120/120T can connect online to Duplo's DSF-2000 digital sheet feeder. This enables pre-collated sets produced on a digital press to be made into booklets.
