James Burn EX610DA Double Action High Speed Automatic Punch

Item #: 04JBEX610DA-GRP

The James Burn EX610DA combines all the power and speed of the innovative EX610, but adds the versatility of a second punch mechanism for "double action" punching (hence the name "DA"). This makes it incredibly convenient for calendar makers, as it allows for the nail hole die to be installed into one mechanism, and a Wire-O® die into the other, so you can punch the pages with both holes in the same run, effectively doubling your speed. One side punches on the leading edge of the sheet, and one on the trailing edge, so you don't have to re-run the job a second time to add the nail hole. The EX610DA is the only machine on the market that can accomplish this double-punching at the high speeds of 120 cycles per minute, which is the same as approximately 125,000 sheets*. A huge selection of punching dies are available, so you can accomplish not just Wire-O® for your calendars, but also punching for spiral binding plastic coil, plastic comb, and more.

You can buy the James Burn EX610DA automatic punch with one of two exit options: either an exit conveyor (creates a shingled line of punched pages) or a pile high stacker (created a square stack on a mobile tray).

Product Description


With the James Burn EX610DA automatic binding punch, you can increase productivity to an unheard of level, all while producing perfect-quality punched documents of all kinds. The "DA" in EX610DA translates to "double action" and means that this powerful unit features two punching mechanisms for dual-end punching at the same time. This means you can have a Wire-O® die installed into one side, and a nail hole punch die installed into the other, so you can punch both at the same time, effectively doubling your productivity by cutting the time it previously took in half.

Ideal for print shops and binderies that handle calendar work, the EX610DA will do it all at variable speeds up to 125,000 sheets per hour*. The speed is easily adjusted with a hand crank, which allows for fine-tuning and customizing for your operator's individual abilities, as well as the paper stock and specific job application. You can adjust the speed from 30 to 120 cycles per minute* with this crank without effecting the continuous use of the machine.

Continuous use means that this machine will run for as long as you need it to without any down time. The unique feed table and trays allow you to set up one full stack up to 18" thick to be punched, and as it runs, set up another stack to take its place as soon as it is complete. The paper you punch travels through the machine automatically, being pulled by the best technology in the industry and jogged with 4-sided inner joggers for perfect punch placement registration. An air-assist picking beak blows a puff of air into the stack as it grabs your pages, which ensures that even your statically charged sheets don't have any feeding problems. The picking beak comes in two different styles for versatility: either the standard peak for basic paper stocks, or the separator beak for thicker or more unique stocks. Your stack of paper can include mixed stocks of all kinds up to 2.5 mm thick without having to re-set or adjust the machine between the sheets, and the sheets are kept in perfect order throughout the punching process; this means you can pre-collate your documents and rest easy knowing they will be collated upon exit.

The James Burn EX610DA double action punch has two options for the exit of your pages, so you can choose the best option for your specific needs. The pile high stacker option will create a perfectly square stack of your punched pages that automatically lowers as it fills. Once it hits the floor, you can roll the mobile tray out and place an empty one in (two are included with this option), so you don't have to stop the machine while you move the punched sheets to the binding station. The second option is a conveyor belt, which will shingle your punched pages so they are not perfectly square, and release them into an easy-to-handle line. Your operator can then grab sets of documents and move them to the binding station. The conveyor also allows for variable speed, so you can set it to suit your operator and job. Pair your EX610DA industrial punch with the high speed BB50H wire binder, the CB30QS automatic coil inserter, or other binding machine of your choice for the fastest binding solution in its class.

Another great feature of the EX610DA is the versatility of the machine. It uses standard EX610 punching dies, which come in a huge selection of punching patterns for different binding styles. Some of the most popular patterns include 3:1 and 2:1 pitch for Wire-O® with round or square holes, 4:1 pitch for spiral binding plastic coils in round or oval holes, rectangular holes for plastic comb, and many more. We can also custom manufacture dies to meet your exact specifications, so you can earn the business of even those very unique customers, never having to say "no" to a client again. You can also add optional accessories to the machine to expand the capabilities even further, including the tab pushing devise to work with mixed index tab stocks collated into your stack, and the bottom feed board unit to allow for punching of cardboard sheets.

If you want the speed and volume allowance of the EX610DA, but don't need the double action punching, then consider the standard EX610 machine as an alternative. Or if you want to punch cardboard sheets, then consider the EX610 Duplex machine.
