Rhin-O-Tuff® ONYX OD4012 Expert Review by Mallory Morsa

The Rhin-O-Tuff® ONYX OD4012 is a great starter-machine for heavy duty punching, as it is much less expensive then it’s brother, the HD7000, and still offers the astounding quality and heavy duty components that are backed by the Rhin-O-Tuff® 3 year warranty. It works well for small to medium-sized offices and print shops that need the ability to produce multiple types of binding styles for clients and internal documents on a daily basis.

Like the large majority of Rhin-O-Tuff® machines, one of the primary reasons that I love the OD4012 is the interchangeable die capabilities; this means you can punch for coil, wire, comb, and much more with just a simple die change, so you don’t have to invest in multiple machines. This means you can save money, as well as save space by having this all-in-one book binding punch. Not only that, but the dies are easy to change out with a unique quick-change die system so you just pull a handle, replace the die, and lock the new one in by pushing the same handle back into place…it can be done in just a few seconds, so change over from job to job is fast and easy.
It is also a very simple-to-use punch machine; just set the page margins, disengage any pins necessary, install the die, and press the foot pedal to punch your paper. There is no real training or technical-background required to operate it. In addition, I love the sleek metallic black look of the OD4012 (and entire ONYX line); it looks much more expensive than it actually is, and is clean and modern, which can impress clients. It is also very quite when run side-by-side with comparable machines, which means it can be placed in an area with customers and sales staff without affecting communication. Just check out this sound comparison video here to hear the difference.

The ONYX OD4012 is one of the less expensive heavy duty punches, which means that its capabilities are a little limited when compared to the others. For example, it has a punching capacity of about 30 sheets of paper (depending on the die) whereas the HD7000 is rated at 40 sheets, and the HD7700 at 55 sheets. It is also a slightly smaller machine than the others, with an 11” long punch opening for letter size paper. The ends of the opening are open so you can punch longer sheets as well, however, you would have to punch once, flip over your pages, line them up, and then punch them again for anything longer than letter size.
You should also keep in mind that the ONYX line of heavy duty punches are punching machines only, meaning they will only punch the holes in your paper, and not actually bind your book. To bind, you can use a variety of modules either mounted onto the machine, or used side-by-side. Pair with the HD4170 Electric Coil Inserter, the HD8000 Wire Closer, or the HD4470 Plastic Comb Opener, depending on the type of binding you need to do.

The Rhin-O-Tuff® ONYX OD4012 is a good choice for offices or small to medium print and copy shops that need the versatility to handle multiple binding methods ( but may not have the space for multiple machines) and need something that is easy-to-use for multiple staff members. It will look great, create quality punched holes for a variety of binding methods, is a great value for the price, and doesn’t take up too much space.
