I RECOMMEND THIS FOR:
The HD4470 is a strong, rugged comb opener that is ideal for more frequent users. It pairs perfectly with the heavy duty Rhin-O-Tuff punching systems, offering the same level of power and durability. If you don’t need something quite as strong, you can consider the CBM650 as an alternative.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT:
This system is built ruggedly, with top-quality parts for a best-in-class option. The HD4470 is manufactured to the same high standards as the other Rhin-O-Tuff machines, impressing users with the power and longevity they offer. One of the best features on this machine is the comb size selector, which is often only seen on the punched themselves. But on a comb spreader, this prevents it from opening the prongs too much, thereby slipping off your spine and having it snap and roll. So set it to your comb diameter, and you’re set to get the comb opened to the perfect amount for each page inserting without slipping.
The ability to be used as a stand-alone unit or to be easily mounted on top of Onyx punches with a mounting kit makes it a versatile choice. Some businesses may choose to mount it to make it a more compact machine, and others may choose to have them separate so one user can punch while another user binds. It is also capable of easily opening combs for 14” edges or smaller, for both round and oval combs in the full range of diameter sizes.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
This comb opener is not ideally suited for combs longer than 14 inches, which makes it difficult for anyone who needs to make documents larger than legal size. You may also want to consider the price, as there are other comb opening alternatives that are quite a bit more affordable.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
For heavy duty comb binding, there is no better opener module out there than the Onyx HD4470 from Rhin-O-Tuff and Binding101. This small, unobtrusive machine is incredibly functional, and will make comb binding as smooth as simple as it can be. Pair with your Rhin-O-Tuff Onyx punch as either a stand-alone unit, or mount to the top for an all-in-one. However you use it, I recommend the HD4470 for higher volume comb bind users.
