Ultimate TechnoGraphics (Montreal), a leader in imposition and finishing automation solutions, and Duplo International (Addlestone, UK), a global provider of print-finishing equipment and solutions, have enhanced their partnership to bring more automation to print production worldwide through the advanced integration of Ultimate Impostrip imposition software with Duplo’s Slitter/Cutter/Creasers.
Ultimate Impostrip easily and automatically generates Duplo-certified impositions with the correct layout and registration marks for cards, flyers and booklet printing. Combined with barcode technology, the solution enables complete automation, from imposition to finishing, eliminating make-readies to reach greater levels of productivity – saving time on job preparation, delivering consistent high quality that customers expect, and reducing the need of specialist operators in pre-press and post-press.
“Working with Ultimate Impostrip has been a great experience,’’ said Andy Cuff, Product Manager at Duplo International. “It’s not only easy to use, but the Ultimate Team also implemented a seamless way to combine Ultimate Impostrip with the XML templates from the Duplo system. Now, customers can quickly get up and running and automate all their jobs to the Duplo DC range devices,” Cuff added. Ultimate Impostrip optimizes every aspect of the pre-press imposition workflow with tools that are easy-to-use yet extremely versatile and can drive multiple presses and finishers. The Duplo DC-746, DC-646 and DC-618 Slitter/Cutter/Creasers are versatile, all-in-one digital finishing solutions designed to trim white borders and crease fold lines in documents to eliminate toner cracking – all in a single pass.
“Ultimate Impostrip is an accessible and efficient way to automate jobs to be finished on the Duplo DC range. It can drive multiple presses and finishing devices,” said Julie Watson, CEO of Ultimate TechnoGraphics. “We’ll be sharing how this solution positively impacts printers’ quality, efficiency and growth in our upcoming collaborative webinar.” Ultimate TechnoGraphics and Duplo are highlighting the new Ultimate Impostrip Automated MultiFinisher in a live webinar to take place on Thursday, March 25, 2021. The webinar, Maximize Print Production Efficiencies, is now opened for registrations on both the Ultimate and Duplo websites.
