Rhin-o-Tuff has been and still is on the cutting edge of book binding technology and today Rhin-o-Tuff is proud to introduce the world's first automated collated punch. The Rhin-o- tuff Tornado Autopunch EX for the first time in this industry we have one single machine that can punch numerous types of substrates, insert tabs, collate, and produce numerous punched book blocks ready for binding. Recently we put to a speed test the traditional model and the tornado Autopunch EX system for 75 books with covers and tabs and found that we saved an impressive 57 percent total job done. The manual removal of slip covers, collating, adding front and back covers, all a thing of the past with the Tornado Autopunch EX. This machine allows you to take all of these processes and combine them into one machine, one function, and allowing the operator to bind books concurrently while the machine continues to punch out new punched book blocks. Welcome to the new way, the world's first collating Autopunch. One printer told us that time is everything, there's a real time savings for a person not having to stand at the machine all of the time. Any type of time savings is outstanding. Punch, sort, stack, punch covers, and insert tabs all in one step with the amazing technology built into this one machine. An operator can stack 2500 sheets of paper in the main bin and the two interposed trays can handle the widest variety of difficult substrates unlike any other machine on the market. And with the patented EX system, the operator can punch one of nine different styles into all of these materials. The main block, front cover, back cover, tabs, no problem. Using the simple graphic user interface panel, the operator can program the entire job and moments later out pops off sets, stacked document sets, ready for easy retrieval and binding. Using an exclusive partnership with German engineering company BDT, Rhin-o- Tuff has harnessed Tornado technology. It all begins with the use of air; side blowers blow air through and across all the substrates reducing static electricity and cling. Built right into this Rhin-o- Tuff machine are these blowers working hard to maximize efficiency and if your eye can even catch it, you can see the side air and Tornado suction working in tandem and the patented rollers keep things moving regardless of the material makeup. Rhin-o-Tuff is combining decades of leading engineering in the binding industry, individual punched die sets allow for multiple binding styles which allows for great versatility, and because of the RFID tag on each die, the Tornado auto punch could automatically read and adjust for the punch style in play. All of this done with one machine that punches and collates automatically. Here are some key features that give the Tornado auto punch EX its versatility and ease of use as the world's first automated correlating punch. It has advanced media handling technology, the widest media range in the industry, automated interposing of index tabs, covers, and inserts. It accommodates mixed media runs on digital printers. Patent-pending paper accumulation technology. Heavy-duty auto-punch technology. Offset book stacks ready for binding. And that is the Tornado Autopunch EX.
