The Renz Punch 500 ES is the ultimate heavy-duty desktop or table-mounted 500mm wide punching machine. Incredible punching power that enables it to punch through even the toughest materials with ease. Specially designed to cope with the latest requirements for thicker digital media and high-end bespoke calendars. Punches up to 4mm in thickness, even on the toughest media, making it ideal for punching complete calendars in one cycle.

The Punch 500 ES is an extremely flexible heavy-duty punch with all punch tools integrating QSA (Quick Size Adjustment) technology. Professional two-piece wire tooling integrates a 20mm calendar thumb cut which can be reversed to allow full 500mm punch width when required. Whilst wire bind and calendar work is the most common application, the Punch 500 ES can also punch documents for coil & comb binding.

Horizontal punching with large front table to support your document during the punching process. An adjustable side lay with integrated punch activation switch makes operation quick and simple. For larger materials or difficult stocks the punch can also be activated via a foot pedal. Eccentric punch cams allow minute adjustment of the punch depth, this allows the punch pins to also be sharpened for greater longevity of service.

The Renz Punch 500 ES has all the features you would expect from Renz. Functional and easy to use with heavy-duty all steel construction. Reliable electronic punching mechanism with an impressive punch capacity of up to 4.0mm. It is the perfect partner to the Renz Mobi 500 for wire bind and calendar work or the Renz APSI300 for high volume coil binding.

The Punch 500 ES is the perfect solution for any Commercial Printer, Print Shop, Specialist Bindery, Large Corporate Print Room or University.
