    Duplo DC-646 v Duplo DC-618

    I am in the same boat and very interested in the Duplo 616 OR the 618. I know the 616 maxes out at 350 GSM and the 618 maxes at 400 GSM. Any other huge differences or concerns one way or the other? Agreed with BigSi a used model for either vs the ridiculous cost of a new one.

    Just curious which Aircare unit you grabbed and if it is still working OK. We are looking to solve humidity issues for a xerox V80, and it sounds like the responses have been pretty helpful. Our shop is about 2500 square feet

    AB Dick QP25- "Emergency SW Trouble"

    Our AB Dick QP25 stops dead of it's own accord quite frequently with the control panel display reading 'Emergency Sw Trouble'... Anyone else had this problem? We have tried to take off the safety guard covers to see if something was tripped, no luck. Anyone else have this problem or a...

    Xerox J75 verse Xerox 700

    We got rid of our 700 in June and switched to a C75. I would have loved the J75 but not worth the added cost given our clicks per month. The 700 struggled with the heavier weight stocks but the C75 has no problems with the stock up to 110# uncoated cover. The machine we have has the decurling...

    C75 is it worth buying for production??? Is Konica Minolta 1070 better?

    We installed a C75 at the end of June, so far so good. It does nice job on color and registration on the Auto-duplex, which goes up to 110# uncoated cover i think. Faster than the 700 that it replaced for 100#gloss cover. We have the decurling unit with our unit and it does a nice job on...

    Xerox J75 user thoughts please

    We are currently looking hard at the J75 but are considering a Ricoh or KM machine TBD. I really like that we can do some replacement/service ourselves on the Xerox (currently have the 700 and like that aspect a ton), i believe that is an option on some Ricoh models but not sure about the KM...

    UV Coating Machines

    We are a mix, could be super small runs and could be 1500-2000. Probably caught between the two for an average run of 200-300. I really like the Kompac but the 15 seems REALLY small, maybe you dont need that extra drying space/length like the Duplo or Tec but not sure.
