Digital Duplicator

Digital Duplicator

A Printer-Duplicator, also known as a digital duplicator, is a printing technology designed for high-volume print jobs (20 copies or more). Printer-Duplicators can provide a reliable and cost efficient alternative to toner-based copiers or offset printing equipment.

The Printer-Duplicator begins by digitally scanning the original and then transferring it to a master template through a thermal imaging process. Then the master is automatically wrapped around a print cylinder, where the ink is drawn through the perforations in the master creating the print.

Printer-Duplicators are known for very high speed in comparison to other printing methods. They are able to produce anywhere from 45 to 180 prints per minute, while maintaining a per page cost that can be as low as 1/3 of a cent. They are also considered very reliable because they do not use heat or copier components, such as toner.
