Document binding machines are a convenient and relatively inexpensive way to punch and bind a wide variety of documents, reports, proposals, school assignments, books and more. It just makes sense to handle your binding jobs in-house instead of outsourcing. That can be quite expensive.
However, a good, quality binding machine requires an investment of at least a few hundred dollars. These include models constructed mainly of metal parts engineered to handle heavy or consistent use. Most offices operate on a pretty tight budget, so you want your new binding machine to last a reasonable amount of time.
Initially, it can be a little overwhelming finding the right binding machine for your office, especially when there are dozens of different binding styles to choose from. The important thing to keep in mind here is machine specifications and ratings. It’s best to purchase a binding machine that’s rated to handle the volume of paper punching and binding you plan to do.
At Office Zone, we advise our customers to obtain a model that’s rated to handle a slightly higher work load than they anticipate. When you operate your binding machine under the manufacturer’s specifications, you put less strain on its moving parts, and other components subject to wear and tear.
We also highly recommend that you clean your binding machine from time to time. That means periodically checking the waste catch tray for punched chad, and then discarding all unwanted material. It’s also a good idea to ensure that all of your office staff are adequately informed and trained to use the machine before they begin their next binding project. And, if you ever experience problems with your binding machine, you can always contact our service technician who can help you solve most binding machine technical issues.
