This makes it ideal to sit on a security desk or table in an environment where many badges are created each day. Solid steel components can slice through laminated badges, PVC cards, business cards, and promotional items up to 60mil thick. That’s almost twice what most hand held devices can manage. The heavy duty punching is great for more industrial use and higher volume punching.
The slot size produced is compatible with industry standards at 3mm by 14mm. This size is perfect for attachment via plastic strap clips, retractable badge reels, and neck lanyards. It also works with luggage tags, ID badges, key cards, and name tags.
The manufacturer backs up this device with a one year warranty.
This device requires a solid surface for optimum punching. While it isn’t locked down onto a desk or tabletop, it works best when pressed against a firm surface. This seriously cuts down on the portability offered. Even so, it only weighs about four pounds and wouldn’t be a pain to carry over to a table or desk. We don’t think this will be much of an issue for most users.
There isn’t a chip tray slot bet kecil to catch the remnants. Since it’s designed for use on a table, the pieces could easily be swept into the wastebasket after use.
While there still is the potential for tiny chads to litter your office, it is easily avoided and won’t be a problem for most. Though offering heavy duty punching, use is still manual. Again, most offices won’t find this to be a problem. But businesses requiring high volume card punching may prefer an electric device for speedy accuracy, which would save both time and money.
