Fiery JobFlow greatly improves efficiency by reducing the number of clicks required to prepare the CMYK and spot layer files for printing and finishing.

DDC-810 Raised Spot UV Coater

A value-added application with spot coating, texturing, and tactile effects sells itself. Business cards become premium when an overlay of clear gloss is added. Direct mail postcards and promotional pieces become irresistible when texture is added to the dimples of a golf ball or to the ultra-fine white sand of an upscale resort. The DDC-810 Raised Spot UV Coater is a design-driven solution that utilizes 600 x 600 dpi inkjet technology, UV lamp curing and camera image registration to deliver production output with texture and depth. 

Experience the touch and feel of real life applications, learn how to make a profit with them, and then see how the same applications can be finished with efficiency - all right inside the Duplo booth.

Bringing Profitability Back to Print
