Why buy a Duplo Duplicator from CBS?
Take the appearance and user friendliness of a photocopier, combine this with the speed and print technology of a printing press and the end result is a Duplo digital duplicator.
Duplo Digital Duplicator Technology
A thermal head makes micro sized holes on a master according to the image data of the original document. The original can either be a hard copy original which is placed on the scanner or a file sent from a computer. Once a master is made, it is wrapped around a drum cylinder, and ink is applied from inside the drum. As each sheet of paper is fed, a roller below the drum cylinder presses the sheet onto the drum and transfers the image onto the sheet using ink.
Toner is attached on photoreceptor according to the image data taken from scanner. Heat and pressure is applied to fix the transferred toner on paper.
Duplo digital duplicators make a master from a document and then apply ink through the master onto paper, to reproduce the document in high volume. Although Duplo digital duplicators look very similar to Digital copiers, the mechanism is much more similar to that of a printing press. Once a Duplo digital duplicators has made a master, print jobs can be turned around in a fraction of the time it would take on a digital copier and with a much lower energy consumption than Digital Copiers as they do not use thermal transfer.
