The company showcased the new DocuMaster MFC, launched at drupa in May, at the Africa Print Expo.
The DocuMaster MFC is designed to eliminate tedious and time-consuming operations by creasing the sheets as part of the feeding and booklet making operation.
With multiple feed stations, the design allows for feeding of specialised covers and booklet inside pages from separate feed bins while still allowing for the creasing of cover, centre or all pages of the book. The Documaster MFC incorporates the new ‘DYNATILT creasing system which automatically registers each sheet and adjusts the mechanism to ensure an accurate crease position every time.
Creasing of covers, centre spreads or indeed all sheets in the book if needed, is simply programmed into the high definition touch screen control unit. Simplicity of operation is key to finishing digitally printed work. Today’s on demand culture means run lengths are smaller and turnaround times are becoming shorter and shorter.
Controlled by a high definition touch panel, the DocuMaster MFC is given full instructions as to the book size, amount of pages and crease position etc. All settings and adjustments are made using the high definition touch panel so operation couldn’t be simpler. An alpha numeric memory allows an unlimited number of jobs to be stored and named as you choose. This makes job recall much easier as you can use your own job name and numbers for storage.
The DocuMaster MFC is ergonomically designed so that it can be loaded (on the run) and unloaded very easily from one position. The footprint is unusually small for a booklet-making system and it will fit into even the smallest of print rooms. The DocuMaster MFC utilises the latest advances in paper feed modules. These modules can be specified as suction feed only or suction and friction feed to a maximum of 4 separate feed stations. The paper is fed from these units using a centre reference sheet guide system and smart detection for sheet integrity.
The DocuMaster MFC can produce up to 1600 booklets per hour and has a Square Back option which enhances the appearance of finished documents by creating a square effect finish, adding value to the finished job.
