Duplo has launched a new desktop card cutter, to add to its growing family of digital finishing solutions. The Ultra Cut 130 is the "the fastest business card cutter in its class" and is ideal for cutting an array of digital print applications including business cards, postcards and photo cards.The Ultra Cut 130 is capable of producing 130 business cards per minute despite its small footprint; meaning 500 cards can be finished in under four minutes. As with all of Duplo's machines automated precision is the ethos of the machine with no manual adjustments required and within 0.2mm accuracy. The machine can handle up to 350gsm.
With 12 job memories available, the user is able to create and recall recurring jobs with ease as well as adjust card length, top margin and width of the gutter cut through the simple control panel. The machine also features a first cut mark sensor, meaning that the machine is 'load and go' and extremely accurate, regardless of any shift with the print.
Optional scoring and perforating modules are available with the Ultra Cut 130, and changing these is a quick and tool-less operation. The machine features a 25mm stack, with a 500 card receiving tray and can accept SRA4 paper, meaning you can simply cut SRA3 in half with a simple dead cut.
"We have an extraordinary range of multifinishers with the likes of the DC-615 and DC-645 and the introduction of the Ultra Cut 130 means we have a perfect entry level machine for our range. With a short run of business cards, there is a high labour time and cost knock on, with many cuts and turns needed to finish business cards. The work is the same whether it is 3,000 business cards or 500. This coupled with the extra machine set up required to offline perforate, which you can do inline with the Ultra Cut 130, means this is a machine that helps you make the best use of your time in the bindery." comments Peter Jolly at Duplo UK.
The product is sold exclusively via Duplo's dealer channel and was launched at their "Widen Your Opportunities" Dealer Conference at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Birmingham on February 10th. The machine will be available in March.
