James Burns Lhermite PB3400 Electric Punch Review
If you punch and bind a lot of documents on a regular basis, having a heavy-duty electric punch can be extremely helpful. One to look at is the James Burns Lhermite PB3400 Electric Punch. Here are its strengths and weaknesses.
The PB3400 has a pretty impressive punching capacity. It has the ability to punch a maximum of 30 sheets of 20 lb. bond paper at one time. The machine can punch this amount of paper no matter which hole pattern you select, so you'll be able to save a lot of time and still use your preferred binding method whether it's wire or plastic combs or something else.
This device is compatible with multiple sizes of paper. The largest sheets it can process measure 13.3" x 13."
You can easily adjust the margin depth settings on this device. Adjusting this setting will allow you to punch the holes in exactly the right spot so you can create books that have incredibly strong bindings. You'll also be able to make the pages more resistant to tears.
This device utilizes interchangeable die sets. These sets can produce the following hole patterns:
2:1 pitch round and square holes;
3:1 pitch round and square holes;
4:1 pitch oval and round holes; and
19 holes for plastic comb binding.
All of dies in each set are fully disengageable so you can produce the right amount of holes for the size of paper with which you're working. The sets can also be stored in the machine so you'll always have them nearby. It only takes a few seconds to swap out a die set, so you'll be able to stay on track.
The PB3400 will keep your pages collated as they're punched so you won't have to spend time re-organizing them. Also, if your documents become jammed in the machine, you can use the reverse function to free them.
You can use this device one of two ways. The first is by utilizing a foot pedal if you prefer to have complete control over the situation. You can also have the machine work automatically if you're in a hurry or just want the process to be more convenient.
The PB3400 has an attached shelf that you can use to store your documents and other items.
Finally, this device is well-crafted and good for heavy-duty use.
Although this device can handle different sizes of paper, you should note that it cannot work with legal-sized documents that measure 8.5" x 14". If you regularly process legal-sized items, you'll either want to choose a different punch altogether or have an additional one on-hand for your documents.
The PB3400 is an incredibly large device with dimensions of 26.7" (length) x 22.2" (width) x 18.1" (height). It's also extremely heavy, weighing 140 pounds. Thus, it probably wouldn't be a good fit for an office and would be better off in copy shops and print rooms.
Finally, this device can only punch. You'll need a binding system to finish off your documents.
Overall, the James Burns Lhermite PB3400 would be a great investment for many companies and organizations. Its selection of die sets can't be beat and the punching capacity is impressive. (Even more so when you consider that it remains the same for each set.) While this machine can't punch legal-sized paper, it nonetheless is a machine worth investing in. So check out the PB3400 today to see what it can do for you.
