Automated duplicators are high volume disc recorders that require minimum user
operation through robotic loading device. These high capacity disc burners run
as standalone machines, meaning no computer connection needed. The difference
between auto duplicators and disc publishers are that auto duplicators do not
provide direct disc printing.
The machine will automatically load, burn, and unload discs once the user stack
blank recordable discs to input bin of a duplicator. The duplication run is
controlled by a front controller panel.
While simple in operation, automated duplicator control panels can be used to
adjust advanced settings such as burn speeds, burn times, audio track editing
and automated start settings so that the machine will start without delay.
The final burned copies are moved by a robotic arm and neatly stacked in an
output bin to allow for easy user retrieval. Automated duplicators are available
with a capacity of 25 to 1,800 discs. The benefit of using these machines is
that they can be left to run without supervision, freeing the user to work on
The outcome amount will differ depending on the media format and the size of
the discs. Due to their larger capacity, DVD and Blu-ray discs will take significantly
longer burn time than CDs. Duplicators with four, six or eight drives provide
the greatest efficiency as multiple discs can be burned at the same time. For
example, an eight-drive duplicator can copy over 100 CDs per hour but only 40
to 70 DVDs per hour. A six-drive duplicator will write approximately 40 to 90
CDs per hour, and 30 to 65 DVDs within the same time frame. A four-drive copier
can produce about 30 to 70 DVDs per hour versus 20 to 50 DVDs.
