Product Description


Rhin-O-Tuff has long been the leader in durable and reliable binding equipment and now backs their machines with a three year warranty.  The Rhin-O-Tuff ONYX 4000PLUS, Heavy Duty Electric Binding Punch is no exception.  This electric punch uses interchangeable dies for punching multiple hole patterns for a variety of binding methods including plastic comb binding, spiral coil binding, wire binding, and more. The dies are inserted and removed quickly and easily with no tools required.  Punching patterns can be changed within seconds. 

The 4000PLUS has an 11" open ended throat.  This means that the maximum length to be punched in one step is 11".  However having the open ended throat allows for longer sheets to be punched in two steps.  Every die comes with fully disengageable pins so both standard and unusual sheet sizes can be punched without having partial holes on the ends.  

This machine is a good fit for print and copy shops as well as corporate environments.  A variety of other Rhin-O-Tuff punches are available for higher volume needs.

Rhin-O-Tuff® ONYX 4000PLUS Expert Review by Mallory Morsa

I recommend the Rhin-O-Tuff® ONYX 4000PLUS for larger offices, or small print and copy shops. It is a durable, quality punching machine with the capability to punch popular patterns for wire, comb, coil, 3-hole ring binders, calendar making, and more. It is a smaller punching machine than many of the other Rhin-O-Tuff® ONYX machines, making it ideal for businesses with less space available. If you need to bind for multiple methods as frequently as daily or several times a day, then the 4000+ might be a great choice for you. Read below to learn more.

As is true for all of the Rhin-O-Tuff® ONYX machines manufactured by Performance Design LLC, the 4000PLUS features the same impressive 3 year warranty. There are no other machines in this class with a warranty this long; in fact, the majority of them range from just 90 days to 1 year… this 3 year warranty proves just how reliable this machine is.
As mentioned briefly above, the 4000 PLUS binding punch has the ability to punch popular hole patterns for Wire-O®, spiral binding plastic coil, plastic comb, 3-hole ring binders, and much more with just a simple die change. When I say simple die change, I mean it; all you have to do is pull a lever, slide out the die, slide in a new die, and press the lever back into place. There is no unscrewing or hassling with small parts that could get lost. This also makes the process very fast; you can change the die in just a few seconds, which makes change-over between customer jobs seamless.
Punching for multiple types of binding means you don’t have to buy multiple binding machines to meet the needs of many customers. So not only do you save money, you also save a ton of table space, which as all shop owners know, is very valuable. And of course, I love the sleek black finish; it looks expensive and new, especially when compared with the gray and tan machines made by other manufacturers.
And it is an ONYX machine, so it has been upgraded with “quietized dies”, making it significantly less noisy that its predecessors. Watch this short comparison video to hear the difference.

The ONYX 4000PLUS is on the smaller-side of the heavy duty punching line, and only has an 11” long punch opening. This makes it ideal for letter size paper, but not for larger sheets, such as legal. It can, however, still work with sheets up to double the punching width (22”) with a second punch; punch your stack once, flip the stack over and align it so the holes are matched up evenly, then punch again. It also has a thinner punching capacity than the other Rhin-O-Tuff® machines, rated at about 20 sheets of paper at a time (other machines range from 30 to 55 sheets – shop a variety of other heavy duty punch machines here).
Before you buy, you should also note that this machine is a punch machine and will not actually bind the wires, coils, or combs. For that, you can consider adding a binding module of your choice. If you buy a Rhin-O-Tuff® module, then you have the option to mount it to the 4000PLUS, or you can work with it side-by-side so multiple employees can work on jobs. The Rhin-O-Tuff® options include the HD4170 electric coil inserting machine, the HD8000 manual wire closer, or the HD4470 plastic comb spreader.

The Rhin-O-Tuff® ONYX 4000PLUS makes a great machine for small to medium print shops that primarily work with letter size documents, need the versatility to be able to punch for multiple binding methods, and have limited space available. It offers good value for the price, and is a high-quality puncher that is backed by a 3 year manufacturer’s warranty.
