If you are looking for a heavy duty paper punching machine for binding that is capable of handling large sized jobs in a high production facility, then the Rhin-O-Tuff HD7000 Heavy Duty Electric Punch is right piece of equipment for you. In this in-depth review we will examine the HD7000 Punching Machine, explaining what makes it great, as well as it’s limitations and pitfalls.

The Rhin-O-Tuff HD7000 14" Electric Punch was designed for high volume users such as binderies, printers, copy shops, in-plant print shops and large organizations. The HD7000 Punch offers the ability to quickly change punching patterns simply by sliding out one die and sliding in a new one. This machine is known for its rugged industrial construction and is designed for high volume production environments where productivity is essential.

The Rhin-O-Tuff HD7000 gives you the opportunity to punch with a variety of different binding methods, including Wire-O Double Loop Binding, Spiral binding Plastic Coil Binding, Plastic Comb Binding, 3-Hole Punching for binders, and 11 Hole Hot-Knife VeloBind Strip Binding. You can expand your business by simply buying these HD7000 punching dies. The die changing mechanism is simple, and can be done in just seconds with the patented quick change die system. There are no tools required for the change, eliminating the possibility of misplacement and the stress and time consumption of screwing and unscrewing a part.

HD7000 Benefits:

    • Durability: The HD7000, like all Rhin-O-Tuff punching equipment, is made of only heavy duty parts that are built to last, even under the extreme stress that goes along with a high production environment.
    • Versatility: The HD7000 has the capability to bind in 12 standard punching patters, or up to 20 non-standard punching patters, with just a simple switch of the die.
    • Speed & Efficiency: The HD7000 has a very high sheet punching capacity, powering through a stack of paper consisting of as many as 40 sheets of 20lb paper. This eliminates the number of punches needed to complete one book, increasing speed and efficiency.
    • Disengageable Pins & Open Throat: The HD7000 features fully disengageable pins so that you do not end up with half of a hole when doing sheet sizes other than the standard 8.5” x 11” letter size documents. The open throat allows for punching of documents larger than the 14” wide.
    • Hands Free Operation: The HD7000 is operated using a foot pedal, allowing the operator use of both of their hands during the entire punching process.

HD7000 Limitations:

    • Margin Depth Control: The HD7000 has a set margin depth that cannot be adjusted.
    • Diameter Guide: The HD7000 odes not feature a diameter guide, which is a little tool that helps you determine what size binding supplies you will need based on the thickness of your book.
