Hi,

someone offered us an used Duplo DC-615 Pro. Does anyone know if this machine is capable of cutting business cards 21-up on a SRA3? Or do we need the 645 or 616 for that?

Thanks in advance.

We have a DC-616 Pro, not sure what the difference would be but we use ours for 13'x19" 24 up sheets. The limitation is it can only do 2 gutter slits and the two side slits (6 total). 21 up on SRA3 should be just fine, I think the minimum side slit distance is 5mm off the top of my head.

Absolutely love it. Before we purchased it we were doing all our business card cutting on a guillotine which was so labour intensive. It's to the point now where I can't imagine functioning without it, if I could go back I would have gotten the 645 though for it's added features.

If the bc's are full bleed, you cannot do that on a 615...it would require two passes. The 616, pro or standard, both can do full bleed business cards in a single pass. Another upgrade from the 615 Pro to the 616 Pro is the ability to start/stop the machine from your computer. On the 615, you have to go over to the machine.

Thanks both for your answer about the 615 vs 616. If I am correct the 645 has got the same issue, would require two passes. So only solution would be or the 616 (pro) or the 646, is that correct? Thanks again.

The 645 only does full bleed in a single pass if you have the business card module. If not, its 2 passes.

Hi jwheeler,
next month there is a sign and print exhibition here in Holland which we will attend. We will then check the Duplo and also some other brands. We have decided not to buy the 615 pro.
 

So You Want to Invest In Inkjet

I Want to Invest in Inkjet, But…
Over the past few years I’ve watched a group of transactional and direct mail printers strategically shift from monochrome toner machines to full-color toner and inkjet presses. Most banished old black-only toner boxes but kept their color toner devices around because they anticipated needing both color inkjet and toner presses to meet customer needs. They were right then and continue to be right today. Because toner and inkjet can be better together. Read the Post
