The James Burn Lhermitte DocuPunch Plus Expert Review
WHAT I LIKE:
James Burn manufacturing is consistently known worldwide for its optimal and top-of-the-line punching machines . Despite its daunting exterior, this automated binding punch machine is quite simple to use. You only need to load your paper and choose the proper setting to operate the machine because all the required controls are located up front. The remainder will be handled by the device. Even in the event of a paper jam, an automatic stop feature will cause the device to turn off.
With the DocuPunch Plus, several different types of paper can be used. Copier paper, cardstock, perforated sheets, even cover stock can all be used with it. Paper as tiny as 5" x 5" and sheets as large as 13" x 12" can also be used with it. Pre-collated documents can also be simply punched using this automated binding punch machine. A paper jogger that will move your papers before they are punched is included with this device. This guarantees that the paper will be flat and that the hole will be placed precisely.
This automatic punching machine is extremely quick and can punch up to 30,000 pages per hour. It is perfect for usage in binderies or in-plant print facilities for medium-volume production. Depending on the fitted dies, this machine may perform a variety of punching patterns. For the following binding techniques, dies are available: plastic coil, double-o wire, velobind, plastic comb, and for use with loose-leaf binders (2-, 3-, and 4-ring).
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
Priced above $30,000, this is a very pricey punch binding machine. Naturally, businesses with limited budget, minimal demand, or inadequate space won't invest in this unit, but print businesses and publishers shouldn't find the price to be prohibitive. especially in light of the operating costs that could be saved through the use of a system like this.
Also to take into consideration is that it’s only a punching device. You will need additional tools to bind your booklets after they have been punched because it won't bind your documents for you. The fact that the punching dies must be purchased individually is another drawback.
Given its size, the DocuPunch Plus will occupy a substantial amount of room. Smaller offices shouldn't use it. You must make sure this equipment will fit on the floor of your building or production area before placing an order.
I RECOMMEND THIS FOR:
I recommend the James Burn Automatic DocuPunch Plus for large publishers and print shops who would greatly benefit from the output and size. If you’re a smaller sized company or copy shop, you can consider investing in the little brother, the PB3300 Modular Punch. Its desktop sized and capable of punching up to 25 sheets and binding up to 210 sheets at a time; It’s the perfect budget alternative.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
The James Burn Lhermite DocuPunch Plus is the ultimate mid-volume automated binding punch machine for precise, on-demand punching of coil, wire, comb, velo, and 3-hole binders. Documents that have already been printed and collated on your printer or copier will operate flawlessly. Despite being pricey and unable to bind your booklets, the James Burn Lhermite DocuPunch Plus is a wonderful machine because of its precision, speed, and ergonomic design. If you frequently need to punch a lot of paper, this would be a smart investment.

The slower cycle speed settings are ideal for when you are punching mixed sheets with different paper weights, as well as when punching tabs. The fastest speed setting of 75 cycles per minute means that the DocuPunch® is actually the fastest machine in its class. The ability to slow down the speed to 50 or 60 cycles for different paper stocks and job requirements makes it very versatile.
Yes! We offer an "express die sharpening service" that involves disassembling the die and sharpening not just the pins, but also the punch plate to ensure the best and longest-lasting results, re-assembling it, and mailing the die back to you.

Because this machine has top-sheet feeding and an anti-static brush at the exit, it DOES have the ability to work well with even high-static sheets (such as acetate covers).
