Standard DocuCrease 35 Manual 14" Hand Creaser
- Ground-breaking Design: Unlike rotary scorers that can leave a cracked finish on some stocks, the channel score produced by the DocuCrease provides a clean, sharp score that doesn't damage the printed image. That's because the creasing action is achieved by embedding the fibers --- across the length of the document --- between a dye and an anvil?all in one action into the stock surface. The result is a superb crease without damage.
- Simple Operation: The DocuCrease contains a clearly marked table with an indicator scale for easy and accurate positioning of the creases. Two adjustable backstops allow for two creases in one pass on the same piece, or for easy set-up of multiple creasing jobs. And it is "ergonomically correct", making it easy to use for either right or left handed operation.
- The DocuCrease is great for adding creases to: Glossy cover stocks with the grain going in the wrong direction, Ink or toner-based stocks, Pamphlets/brochures, Greeting cards, and Covers used for booklets or perfect bound books
- Versatile: Available in two models, the DocuCrease channel scores up to 14" in length on the smaller unit, the DC35, and up to 20.5" in length on the larger unit, the DC52. Both models are ideal for a wide assortment of printed materials. Additional backstops can be added to either unit to increase the number of preset crease positions per pass that you can get from using the two standard backstops.
- Adjustable Backstops: Two standard adjustable stops allow for two preset creases in one pass. And they couldn't be easier to adjust: just lift and slide along measured table.
- AutoCreaser: For higher-volume creasing, step up to the Standard Morgan AutoCreaser, a fully automated suction feed scorer.
