Heavy Duty Punch
Where do you start when looking for a heavy duty punch?
Single Hole Punch
The single hole punch is most commonly used in law firms or solicitors practices these days. They are used to punch a hole in the corner of documents that are going to be filed. These are generally filed using paper binders or treasury tags. There are only a couple of types manufactured now because they are less commonly used, Rexel and Rapesco being the most popular.
2 Hole Punch
The most common type of hole punch has 2 punching dies and they are available in several sizes. The tiny desk top machine that will punch through 5-10 sheets of paper up to the heavy duty punch. Some heavy duty puinches can drill it’s way through a whopping 300 sheets of 80gsm paper.
Heavy duty punches need to have a long lever in which to apply the pressure required to push the dies through that thickness of paper. The Rapescso 2160 heavy duty hole punch is the most robust 2 hole punch that Octopus supply. The Rapesco 2160 has dies and cutting discs that can be replaced, making the punch have a longer life span.
4 Hole Punch
The 4 hole punch is designed to punch 4 evenly spaced holes into A4 paper. When the punched paper is inserted into a 4 ring binder the weight of the paper is distributed across the 4 rings, which makes it more secure. The 4 hole punches that Octopus can supply range from a small 5 Star punch that will perforate up to about 10 sheets of paper to the huge Rapesco 4400. The Rapesco 4400 4 hole punch can perforate up to 150 sheets of A4 paper and has a long lever to help with punching larger quantities of paper.
