Duplo International offer options on both Friction and Suction collators to combat most of the issues with digital print. Although the Friction collators are a more traditional form of feeding they still have their place in the digital education markets where traditional prints and paper stocks are still used. Becoming more common place are Suction Fed paper collators which use air fans to separate and feed the sheets, thus enabling heavier stocks to be fed of both standard and coated, glossy papers. As no friction is applied to the sheet to enable feeding no marks are shown on the sheet and therefore Suction Fed collators are proving very popular with the digital print markets as they tend to use glossy or coated stocks such as silk.
Duplo offer 2 different variations on suction feeders with the traditional tower format and the new style dual bin Digital Feed stations which are ideal for variable data and pre-collated digital sets. This creation also enables Digital Print and Litho print to be merged via the feeder, Digital Print tends to be produced in collated order whereas Litho prints each sheet in turn and must be collated to make the set. A handy tool if you produce both Digital and Litho print in one location. The more traditional tower suction collators from Duplo are designed for the higher volume users of both Litho and Digital prints, the integrated fan systems ensure all stocks are fed with ease.
The Finishing Point Ltd is a leading partner to Duplo International and as such offer a range of both Friction and Suction collators as well as the new digital feed solutions.
