Essentials For Choosing The Right Punches And Dies

By Harriett Crosby

Large quantities of books and documents that require punching and binding are common scenario in some big businesses and commercial establishments. This requires huge investments just to procure the company's own punching machine so careful study and weighing of options are needed. Here are some helpful tips to consider when purchasing punches and dies equipment for the company.

First of all, there is a need to check the volume of documents that the company normally needs to be processed in order the match the need with the appropriate machine. As a matter of fact, the company's volume of tasks to be done should be lower than the punching capacity of the machine to be procured. This is because the machine's maximum punching capacity should not be fitted all at once per lift to make the machine function properly even after many years down the road.

Take note also of the maximum punch length of the machine when considering buying one for the company. If the company has mostly legal size documents for binding, it is recommended to go for the fourteen inch throat punching machine. On the other hand, if the company has mostly larger documents, then it would be better to purchase the puncher with open throat instead.

The dies at the machine's side portion should also be easily changed in and one every time there is a need to do so. Modular binding machines allow quick changes of dies thereby saving time and effort in the changing process. Meanwhile, there are machines that need longer time just to change their dies due to the screws on the bolts and thumbs.

There are also machines with horizontal binding orientation and there are machines with vertical orientation. The difference between the two is that the documents are placed at the front part of the machine with horizontal orientation while they are placed on top of the machine for vertical orientation. Depending on the user's preferences, there are pros and cons for each type of orientation.

Meanwhile, it is also advisable to consider the punching cycle of the machine before actually purchasing the material itself. There are machines with slow cycle and may take a few seconds before actually punching while there are bigger machines with faster cycles courtesy of their continuous cycle motors. Machines with faster punching cycle can greatly enhance the productivity of the punching tasks at hand as this can accomplish more punching and binding tasks at a relatively shorter period of time.

After thorough research and careful considerations of the above-mentioned tips, it is also imperative to search the internet for manufacturers that carry the specifications needed by the company. Always check and compare the warranties and prices that the manufacturers offer prior to actual sales transactions. Conduct also a background research on the reputation of the chosen manufacturer to guarantee that the company's punching and binding needs are meet to the fullest.

When all possible options have been carefully considered and thorough researches have been conducted, its time to make the actual purchase of the punches and dies machine. Go for the best machine available based on the company's need and go ahead to quicker and easier punching activities. Make way for stress-free and prolific binding and punching production.
