Duplo launches DB290 perfect binder

Duplo has announced a new perfect binder, the DB290, which can produce up to 200 books per hour.

The new DB-290 uses wheels to glue, which means that operators have the ability to use an adhesive that dries particularly quicker. The smoother process is also accentuated by their own dedicated glue tank, leaving the main tank with the option to house glue that takes longer to dry, meaning it soak through to the spine of the book.

Duplo International chairman Robin Greenhalgh comments: “Our new side gluing technique is really going to impress users, who will be amazed at the quality from the better binding and squarer books."

"With the emphasis on today’s printer to provide a multi-service approach we have developed DB-290 to deliver a high-quality book without the need for a skilled operator. Our new side gluing technique is really going to impress users, who will be amazed at the quality from the better binding and squarer books

“Electronic operation and a clearly marked LED display ensures more precise setting. It is flexible too with a conversation to padding jobs achieved at the push of a button. All these elements have been combined to ease set up and operation for the most efficient and profitable results.”

Operating at up to 200bph or 360cph and taking a maximum book thickness of up to 40mm at a maximum size of 320x400mm, the machine is designed to the production of soft cover books, tape bound books and notepads. 

North isolated a number of additional improvements on the DB-290 over the DB-280, including improved notching and binding and an improved clamping and nipping system, which grips pages automatically before the binding process begins. It also has a redesigned double rail for improved binding.
