Kemtek Print Solutions will showcase products from leading brands, including HP, Aristo, Durst and Duplo at the Africa Print Expo, taking place from 2-4 July 2014 at Gallagher Estate. The Africa Print Expo is co-located with FESPA Africa.


This is the fastest SRA3+ format digital sheetfed press in the market. The press prints four million colour pages per month with high profitability. Using the Enhanced Productivity Mode, throughput increases by 33% to 160 colour ppm, increasing volume significantly. Hardware and software advancements and new supplies improve robustness and the new intelligent automation maximises up-time. The new special effect capabilities, including raised print and textured effects, expand opportunities to deliver high-value applications.


Touted as the best new generation cutter, the product features on this 1600mm x 2500mm machine include a work surface that is accessible from around the table. Up to 54 controllable zones secure even the smallest of jobs. It has easy to use cutter control panel software and a remote control pad for easy access and operation. It is equipped with the latest version tool head with Automatic eye system and tools which include cutting, creasing, bevel cutting and routing.

DURST P10 320R

The Rho P10 320R inkjet printer defines the new quality standard for roll-to-roll printing. Product components such as the Quadro Array P10 printhead technology and the magnetic linear drive carriage system are significant technical innovations for the printing press. The ‘fine art’ print quality is ideally suited for high visibility, backlit applications, but also for textiles and stretch media. The ability to print side by side on two 1.6m rolls of media, with differing image data for each, further enhances its productivity. The large roll option allows for unattended operation. The new machine is designed for large format specialists, who wish to provide a consistent quality for a range of advertising and promotional materials.


The 645 production finisher automatically cuts, slits and creases to produce greetings cards, postcards, CD and DVD covers, business cards and more, quickly, accurately and profitably. Specifically designed to match the output of high end production digital presses, the DC-645 production colour finisher can effortlessly produce regular and folded business cards, postcards, greeting cards, full bleed brochures, direct mailers and other bespoke print-on-demand materials on stocks of up to 350gsm.


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, while 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.


Designed to cope with short runs with fast set up, the Ultra Cut 130 is the ideal solution for on-demand business card making. Additional applications can also be produced such as postcards, photo cards and tickets. Optional perforating and scoring modules extend the capabilities of the Ultra Cut 130 even further, allowing the user to modify the job. It handles 120-350gsm stocks and processes 130 cards per minute.


The Ultra Cut 240 is a mid-level multi-function finishing solution for digital colour print. It is an ideal companion for low to mid volume production digital presses. The Ultra Cut 240 is equipped with Duplo’s brand new Digital Media Feeding Mechanism (DMFM) to feed digitally printed stock and can handle sheets up to an SRA3 size. It can finish a wider range of applications and is a perfect fit for copy shops, quick printers, in-plants and digital printers. It processes up to 240 business cards per minute.


The 150 Digital Booklet System is Duplo’s entry-level sheet feeding system connecting the DSF-2200 Sheet Feeder with the DBM-150 Bookletmaker equipped with the DBM-150SxS Kit. The DSF-2200 comes loaded with a number of high-end features including Duplo’s own belt suction feed system, front and side air separation, an anti-static device and ultrasonic double feed detection for enhanced feed reliability. It feeds up to 200 sheets per minute and offers a variety of options including a trail edge air kit, pre-loading kit, and 1D and 2D barcode readers. The system produces superior corner, side or saddle-stapled applications up to 1720 booklets per hour.


Simple to use and compact in size, the Ultra 200A applies a high quality gloss, matte or satin finish to a wide range of offset and digitally-printed applications, enhancing the richness of its colours while protecting them from scratches and scuffs. The Ultra 200A UV coating machine offers unique capabilities for coating both sides of the sheet with no additional adjustments required. The applicator and impression rollers engage only at the start and end of the sheet, ensuring a smear-free and clean finish on both sides. The rollers automatically disengage when there is no sheet or when not in use, preventing any indentations or flat spots on the roller or the print.


The FKS PrintBind KB-4000 PUR is the latest in on-demand binding and is ideal for producing high quality books in short runs. This user-friendly, single clamp binder features both PUR and EVA glues. The PUR glue is dispensed through a unique self-sealing slot nozzle which provides a precise amount of glue down the length of the spine. In addition, the FKS PrintBind KB-4000 PUR also comes with two active glue applicator discs which apply an even spread of EVA hot-melt glue to the side of book.


The UltraBIND 2000 PUR is a single clamp easy to use perfect binder. The Patented Orbital PUR System is a revolutionary development in the binding technology. This new technology is not only precise and accurate but also very cost effective, allowing up-to 290 cycles per hour. The UltraBIND 2000 PUR is an ideal companion for small digital printers, copy shops, quick printers and corporate in-plants.

The company will also showcase Screen EQUIOS UniversalWorkflow, as well as Founders PaSharp software and Sibress products.
