The DF-1200 is the only table-top
suction folder in the market with
Optical Double Feed Detection. Duplo
has developed the DF-1200 by looking
at the major trends in the global print
market, in particular the digital colour
market at which it is targeted. The
suction feed helps to avoid marking
and static fuelled mis-feeding notorious
on friction fed paper handling systems
whilst also allowing a heavier grade
of paper to be fed. User-friendliness
is key, with both intelligent paper size
detection and automatic plate setting
working together to ensure the quickest
possible set-up and folding accuracy.
Folding Quality and Styles
The DF-1200 utilises two folding plates
and four folding rollers to guide heavier
stocks and achieve a superbly flat fold.
It is equipped with 6 standard folding
styles: Single Fold, Double Fold, Irregular
Accordion Fold, Letter Fold, Accordion
Fold and Brochure Fold. In addition,
the operator can create Custom fold
and Cross fold applications that give an
enormous level of flexibility.
The DF-1200 can consistently and
accurately process up to 260 sheets per
minute. Equipped with 5 speed levels, the
operator has greater flexibility to reduce
the speed for tricky jobs and increase
the speed when time is of the essence.
Automatic set-up ensures very high
productivity and efficiency in terms of
savings in cost and time.
Feeding Mechanism
The DF-1200 is equipped with a top
feeding suction-fed system. It is designed
to handle all paper types whilst set-up
is fully automatic and intuitive. The top
feeding system relieves pressure on the
fed sheet because there is no weight
above it. This means there is no rubbing
because the sheet is lifted by air suction
rather than dragged through and
delivered into the machine. The paper
feed tray has a capacity of 625 sheets
Noise Level
The new DF-1200 is the quietest tabletop air suction folding machine in the
market today. It is equipped with a fan
not a pump and the fan system is much
smaller than conventional ones so it is
housed within the machine itself. The fan
is also much quieter than a compressor
pump, this is particularly noticeable when
compared to other suction folders.
The DF-1200 automatically detects the
standard paper sizes from A3, B4, A4, B5,
A5 and B6 and automatically sets the fold
position for each of the 6 built-in fold
styles. For non-standard paper size the
length can be inserted manually and the
fold positions are adjusted accordingly.
Job Memories
The DF-1200 has 20 job memories
for non-standard folds. The operator
can insert the sheet length and fold
dimensions through the control panel
and can save the jobs which can be
recalled for future use. Once an operator
enters the folding parameters and
presses the test button, all parameters are
automatically adjusted.
Optical Double Feed Detection
The DF-1200 is the only table-top air
suction folder in the market equipped
with Optical Double Feed Detection,
ensuring the integrity of the folding
process. Optical Double Feed Detection
ensures just a single sheet is processed
at a time, which is particularly important
when folding personalised letters and
Batch Mode/Interval Function
The benefits of this feature are
multifaceted. In terms of productivity
alone, it ensures the machine can be run
at a continuous speed with a short pause
at set intervals, to enable the operator to
offload without completely stopping the
machine – essential on a long run.
Optional Side Air Kit
The DF-1200 has an Optional Side Air kit
