Wide feeding head and double vacuum tapes provide reliable handing of a wide range of stock including difficult to feed papers. Any mis-collated blocks are diverted to a reject tray to keep disruption to a minimum.


The Duplo DBM-120 is a highly versatile bookletmaker capable of standalone/hand-fed operation or connection to a choice of friction or suction collators and Duplo\’s DSF-2000 digital printed sheet feeder.

The operating speed is up to 2,400 booklets-per-hour and most of the setup is automatic making this a perfect machine for short-run booklet production.

Highly Productive Production speeds of 2,400 A5 booklets per hour are possible when online to a Duplo collator. Productivity is further maintained by the high level of automation in the setup process which ensures minimal manual intervention. A built-in corner/side staple facility allows the operator to perform these functions without removing attachments further improving overall productivity.   Quick Automatic Set-up Changing between different booklet sizes takes just seconds. Simply make the selection on the control panel or recall one of the 13 memories and the DBM-120 will automatically move the side guides. The staple positions can be moved manually if required.   Create 80-page Booklets 20 sheets of 80gsm paper can be handled making A4 booklets from 8 to 80 pages long! The machine will automatically staple to the correct depth once the operator has input the number of sheets into the machine so a strong bind is assured no matter the thickness.   4 Modes of Operation The DBM-120 is capable of side stapling, corner stapling, folding and saddle stitching so just about any finishing requirement is possible.   Accuracy A fine adjustment mode allows for correct positioning of the staple, fold and trim positions which can be stored for future recall in any of the 13 memories. In addition, staple heads are fitted with \”out of staple\” sensors to prevent unstapled booklet errors.   On-line Edge Trimmer (Optional) When producing thicker books it is often necessary to trim the wide edge to ensure the booklet has a flat finish.

The Duplo DBM-120T is an optional trimmer unit that will cut this edge as the book is ejected from the bookletmaker ensuring a more presentable appearance.    The Duplo DBM-120 is capable of producing booklets from A3 to A5 in size.


The SpineMaster produces a high- quality, SquareBack spine on booklets. The machine is very easy to set-up and use, yet gives a truly professional finish.

The SpineMaster is bound to change the way you think about finishing booklets. It gives you both the superior appearance of a perfect bound booklet and the security of a stitched spine.

SquareBack Books

The SpineMaster post-processes traditional stitch- fold booklets and transforms them into SquareBack booklets. These are flat and easy to pack, stack and handle. There is no risk of loose pages – you can even print on the spine.

SquareBack books are now the accepted standard for saddle stitched books.

Added Value

The SpineMaster gives added value and it is faster, more convenient and cheaper than perfect binding.

While traditional booklet making achieves a satisfac- tory result on thin booklets, the more sheets you use, the more the book will “gape” at the spine. The SpineMaster re-forms the spine into a square shape to produce a long lasting, high quality finish.

The SpineMaster fits after the trimmer units and the unique SquareBack process ensures that no addi- tional trimming is required.

After processing, the SquareBack booklets are deliv- ered into a stacking hopper on the top of the unit, where they are easily removed by the operator. If re- quired, booklets can bypass the SquareBack process and are delivered directly to the hopper. Similarly, individual booklets can be hand fed into the unit if required.
