GBC launches Magnapunch 2.0 – the next generation in paper punching.


This tabletop paper punch is designed to increase productivity and profitability and take paper punching to the next level with evolutionary technology. The heart of the Magnapunch 2.0 is the proprietary edge detection technology that virtually eliminates mis punches. Add to that the GBC advancements in 'smart' technology, enabling faster set-up and change over times for custom and uncommon size applications, and that makes the GBC Magnapunch 2.0 the first desktop punch to move from the world of electro mechanical devices into the digital age, bringing increased productivity to all print finishing operations.
Mis-punches are usually not detected until the documents are in assembly where the pages have to be re-worked, creating waste, operator inefficiency and reductions in throughput. GBC's technological advancements in edge detection allow the machine to recognise when paper is not loaded properly and automatically communicate an error message to the operator, virtually eliminating all mis-punching mistakes. Once corrected, the machine re-sets in seconds and production continues. The Magnapunch 2.0 is the only desktop punch on the market with this innovative edge detection technology.
With the new Magnapunch 2.0, smart set-up technology permits the operator to realise faster set-ups and change over for custom and/or uncommon size applications that in the past were imprecise, manual set-ups. Now, the operator simply enters the paper size into the LCD screen, in inches or centimetres, and the machine automatically provides the proper left edge guide placement and pin configuration. The full colour LCD and electronic interface includes pattern and paper size specific set-up instructions and monitors operating conditions throughout the punch process. This leading technology takes a lot of the guess-work out of each production job and reduces operator error tremendously.
With a half second punch cycle and continuous duty motor, punching up to 49,000 sheets per hour, the Magnapunch 2.0 is ideal for high volume punch production. Multiple punch patterns are available to punch sheets with 13 different hole patterns. Interchangeable die sets slide in place quickly and securely without the need for tools. The punch is easily operated with the use of a foot pedal or table top trigger switch, and sheet size capabilities up to 14" are available for most punch patterns.
