DF360

With the introduction of the DF360, MGI combines 30 years of digital printing and finishing experience in order to produce the most efficient all-in-one unit on the market.

Unlike other offline, multi-function machines currently available, the DF360 includes lamination along with the other standard features (cutting, slitting, creasing and scoring). For applications such as postcards, business cards, menus and photo books, this streamlines the finishing process, reducing the number of steps needed and expediting turnaround time.

The DF360 is the perfect complement to any workflow, digital or offset. In combination with digital presses, the DF360 allows true print-on-demand applications to be combined with all-in-one finishing, resulting in a quick delivery to the customer. The expanded sheet size (up to 14 x 29” / 360 x 740 mm) accommodates longer sheet lengths (offset prints or from digital devices such as MGI’s Meteor DP60 Pro/DP8700 XL), ideal for panoramic photos, book covers with flaps, signage, quad-fold brochures, pull-out maps and other applications.

Combining 5 traditionally offline features in one machine also allows print professionals the maximum flexibility and creativity in choosing finishing options. Operators can choose one of the preset profiles or create their own on-the-fly with a minimum of mechanical intervention.

Product Advantages

Paper Handling & Speed

The DF360 can handle sheets ranging from 100 to 360 mm / 3.9” to 14.2” in width and from 200 to 740 mm / 7.9” to 29” in length. It accepts paper weights from 135 to 350 gr/m² / 50 to 130 lb cover.

The high capacity feeder features an air feed system and can accommodate approximately 3,000 sheets. MGI’s exclusive offset feeder table ensures a flat paper path and optimum sheet registration.

Finished products can be as small as 50 to 360 mm / 1.9”to 14.2” in width and from 80 to 740 mm / 3.15” to 29” in length (from business cards to book covers).

Lamination

The only solution of its kind on the market, the DF360 laminates in addition in-line cutting, creasing, scoring and perforation. Double-sided lamination helps protect your jobs while providing a premium finish (available in matte, satin or glossy). Jobs can even be laminated using two different finishes (ie. matte on one side and satin on the other). This feature is ideal for photos, book covers, post cards and menus, among others. All features are 100% digital and automatically operated.

Cutting

With digitally controlled tools, users can program up to 16 horizontal and vertical cutting actions (in steps of 0.5 mm). Tools are self-sharpening and require no manual operator intervention. Settings for each sheet can be stored in a digital library for future use.

Slitting

For applications such as business cards and other documents with a bleed, the slitting function (horizontal) ensures speed and precision by trimming the document in a single motion, perfect for documents with bleeds and/or gutters.

Creasing (Simple & Graduated)

For brochures and invitations, a precise crease is necessary for a professional finish. The DF360 can perform up to 16 creasing (in steps of 0.5 mm) per sheet, plus can be stored in the template library for future use. For applications such as photo books, automatic graduated creasing allows pages to lie flat.

User Interface

The DF360’s pilot operates via a user-friendly touch screen interface. All templates are accessible via graphic menus - for each document produced, the finishing operations can be stored as a user template for future use. All functions are easily performed by a standard operator.

Flexy tools

The DF360 comes with a unique Flexy tools module, allowing the user to add custom tools (up to 3 manual functions).

The three types of blades can be installed in many possible combinations (maximum of 3 blades simultaneously) . Flexy tools operate on the entire width of the DF360 (up to 360 mm/ 14.2”) and provide many additional custom finishing options.
