Renz P 500E Electric Wide Format Modular Binding Punch Review
If your company or organization binds a lot of documents, you can really benefit from having a commercial-grade punch. This is especially true if you work with wide-format items. If that's the case, you should consider getting the Renz 500E. It's a wide-format electric punch that can really make the binding process a lot easier. Here's an in-depth look at this device.
First off, the 500E is a wide-format punch and this is definitely reflected in its punching width. This device is capable of punching paper up to 20 inches long so it's ideal for larger documents such as blueprints, photobooks, and more.
This machine uses interchangeable die sets. These sets are available for a number of different binding methods including popular ones such as color coil and plastic comb. You can even get a two-piece die sets that allow you to put thumb cuts in your documents. They'll come in handy if you ever need to make a bunch of calendars.
The die sets are easy to change even if you've never done so before. It only takes a couple of minutes to change them out which will definitely help you stay productive. Also, the dies are disengageable so you can punch different sizes of paper and end up with the correct hole pattern. (This is referred to as the Quick Size Adjustment feature.)
You can use standard dies with this device as well as high-quality AP ones. The AP dies allow you to punch more paper at once so they're handy if you have a big job to tackle. For example, the 500E has a maximum punching thickness of .120". However, if you use AP 360 dies, you'll be able to punch up to .180".
The 500E is a pretty large device due to its punching width. The entire thing measures 29.3" (width) x 19.7" (depth) x 18.9" (height) so this isn't the ideal machine if your workspace is extremely limited. You'll want to get help moving this device because it weighs over 300 pounds.
You should note that this machine is tough and rugged-looking, so it may not be a good choice if your workplace calls for a machine that looks more professional. However, this device has metal parts and is definitely well-made. Due to this, you'll be able to use the 500E for many years.
Finally, the 500E is a punch only. You'll still need a way to bind your documents whether it's a coil inserter, plastic comb opener, or a wire binding machine.
The Renz 500E is definitely a wise purchase if you're in the market for a commercial-grade binding machine that can handle wide-format documents. There aren't many machines that can handle wide-format items, so that really helps this product shine. It's great that you can produce different hole patterns for many different kinds of binding and that you can choose between standard and AP dies. You'll just need to consider the device is the right size for your office. (You'll also need to decide if its appearance will be acceptable for your working environments.) If you decide that it is, the 500E will become a valuable part of your office.
