This Duplo DF1200 Suction Folder is in excellent condition. Just one previous user, this folder was originally supplied in 2018. It has been regularly serviced and is in excellent working and cosmetic condition.

The DF-1200 is the only table-top suction folder in the market with Optical Double Feed Detection. Duplo has developed the DF-1200 by looking at the major trends in the global print market, in particular the digital colour market at which it is targeted. The suction feed helps to avoid marking and static fuelled mis-feeding notorious on friction fed paper handling systems whilst also allowing a heavier grade of paper to be fed. User-friendliness is key, with both intelligent paper size detection and automatic plate setting working together to ensure the quickest possible set-up and folding accuracy.

Feeding Mechanism 

The DF-1200 is equipped with a top feeding suction-fed system. It is designed to handle all paper types whilst set-up is fully automatic and intuitive. The top feeding system relieves pressure on the fed sheet because there is no weight above it. This means there is no rubbing because the sheet is lifted by air suction rather than dragged through and delivered into the machine. The paper feed tray has a capacity of 625 sheets (50mm).

Folding Quality and Styles 

The DF-1200 utilises two folding plates and four folding rollers to guide heavier stocks and achieve a superbly flat fold. It is equipped with 6 standard folding styles: Single Fold, Double Fold, Irregular Accordion Fold, Letter Fold, Accordion Fold and Brochure Fold. In addition, the operator can create Custom fold and Cross fold applications that give an enormous level of flexibility.


The DF-1200 can consistently and accurately process up to 260 sheets per minute, 15600 sheets per hour. Equipped with 5 speed levels, the operator has greater flexibility to reduce the speed for tricky jobs and increase the speed when time is of the essence. Automatic set-up ensures very high productivity and efficiency in terms of savings in cost and time. 


The DF-1200 automatically detects the standard paper sizes from A3, B4, A4, B5, A5 and B6 and automatically sets the fold position for each of the 6 built-in fold styles. For non-standard paper size the length can be inserted manually and the fold positions are adjusted accordingly.

Optical Double Feed Detection 

The DF-1200 is the only table-top air suction folder in the market equipped with Optical Double Feed Detection, ensuring the integrity of the folding process. Optical Double Feed Detection ensures just a single sheet is processed at a time, which is particularly important when folding personalised letters and documents.
