James Burn Lhermite MKIII Automatic Binding Punch Review
Does your workplace need a binding punch that can prepare thousands of sheets of paper for multiple binding methods? If so, you must check out the James Burn Lhemitre MKIII, one of the most impressive automatic binding punches available. Here's an in-depth look at what this machine is capable of so you can determine if it's right for your workplace.
First of all, the MKIII can process up to 40,000 sheets of paper per hour. That's an incredible amount, making this device perfect for binderies and print shops. This machine is compatible with different weights of paper ranging from 16 lb. bond all the way up to 100 lb. index sheets. The sheets you run through can be as small as 5.5" x 5.5" or as large as 13" x 13". It's even capable of processing index tabs.
The MKIII has a top-feed feature that can take in between 5 and 20 sheets are a time. No matter how many sheets are fed, you can be assured that they'll all be perfectly punched because this machine has retractable pins. That means you won't end up with holes that run off the edge of the page.
If you want to reduce the amount of static electricity between your sheets, you can attach an optional air valve to this device. The air will separate the sheets so that they're easier to process. (Note: an air supply isn't included.)
Your sheets will remain in order when the MKIII processes them because it's equipped with a turnover device. This will help you save time because you won't need to put your work back in order.
There are a number of interchangeable die sets for this device so you can partake in just about any kind of binding you want. There are sets available for twin-loop wire, VeloBind, plastic comb, color coil binding, etc. Dies can produce square and round holes as well.
Although you wouldn't know it to look at it, the MKIII is pretty easy to use. All you really need to do is put your paper in the feeder, press a button, and the machine will begin punching. There's even a keypad you can use to control things. Best of all, it only takes a few minutes to change the die sets, so this is a great device to use when you want to save some time.
The MKIII is incredibly large, so it's not meant for workplaces that are looking for a desktop punch. This machine's dimensions are 46" (height) x 72" (width) x 28" (depth) - that's equivalent to 3.8' x 6' x 2.3'. Plus, it weighs 650 pounds. Luckily, it's equipped with casters so moving it won't be impossible.
Finally, this product has a one-year warranty for parts and a 90-day one for labor.
The James Burn Lhermite MKIII is a remarkable binding punch thanks to its easy operation and phenomenal punching capacity. This is the ideal device for high-output environments, especially print shops, although it's probably a bit too large for use in most offices. The MKIII is one of the best high-capacity punches on the market, so if it sounds right for your workplace, take a look at it today.
