Duplex Systems

This section describes the following suggested duplex configurations: Inline, Left-Angle, and 'H'. Alternative configurations should be discussed with your marketing representative.

If you are using the Web Cooling System with InfoPrint models HD3/4, HD5/6, or TD3/4, see Web Cooling System.

The dimensions of the Duplex Printing System and the Buffer/Flipper Unit (1), the optimum separation of the units, the service clearance around the allowable configurations of these units, and the power cable and channel cable locations are shown in the following figures.

Inline configuration for InfoPrint 4100 Models MD1/2, HD3/4, HD5/6, TD1/2, TD3/4, and TD5/6 with Web Cooling System
Notes:
  1. The web cooling system provides the best cooling solution for the web during high speed printing, and reduces the footprint required.
  2. For adequate cooling, allow between 3660 mm (12 feet) and 5486 mm (18 feet) between the forms exit area of the last engine (both engines in a dual simplex configuration, engine 2 in duplex configuration, or engine 1 in a simplex configuration) and the point in the postprocessing device where the forms are stacked, folded, or rewound. Whatever length is used, paper temperature must be less than or equal to 50° C (122° F) at that point in postprocessing to avoid toner transfer problems.
  3. Service clearance of 1574 mm (62 in.) is required in front of the printer with or without the CCD Cart feature. Service clearance of 1524 mm (60 in.) is required in back of the printer
  4. For information about outlets and power cables, see Power Outlet and Cable Summary.
  5. The minimum spacing between the engines with the cooling system installed is 2591 mm (102 inches). This spacing can be used if the room temperature is below 23C (74F) and the basis weight of the forms being used is 24 pounds or less. If these conditions cannot be met, the minimum spacing should be 2997 mm (118 inches).

Whatever length is used, paper temperature must be less than or equal to 50° C (122° F) at that point in postprocessing to avoid toner transfer problems.
  2. With the Signature Page feature, an additional 305 mm (12 in.) are required between the output of Printer 1 and the Buffer/Flipper Unit
  3. Service clearance of 1574 mm (62 in.) is required with or without the CCD Cart feature.
