High Performance Paper Drilling On Demand: Dürselen PB-15 DoD

Paper drilling on demand—that means change of hole pattern, spine margin, and paper size at the touch of a button, without any set-up delay. The paper drilling system Dürselen PB-15 DoD combines maximum flexibility with high output—ideal conditions for modern workflows in digital printing and finishing.

The paper drilling system Dürselen PB-15 DoD processes:

  • Piles of loose leafs
  • Piles of folded sections
  • Piles of perfect bind books
  • Piles of stitched brochures

    ...up to 50 mm/2" (optional 76mm/3") in height. Two drill heads with free positioning programming can produce any hole pattern at the touch of a button with full automated control of paper format and spine margin. This allows for efficient processing of large printing volume, consisting of many different small runs.

    Dürselen Paper Drill PB-15 DoD can run in-line with digital printing and finishing equipment and be used as a stand-alone unit. A special interface allows job definition and setup control via barcode or a networked workflow for in-line operation. Maximum flexibility, continuous workflow, highest process reliability—paper drilling on demand.
