The DocuPunch PLUS is the latest generation automatic punch from world-renowned manufacturer, James Burn. It is no surprise how quickly this automated binding punch has become a worldwide favorite, as it offers production-level quality and output, but with the footprint and ease-of-use of a copier machine. This versatile, ergonomically designed time-saver offers hands-free punching of pre-collated books, presentations, reports and even tabbed sheets in a free-standing unit that makes quick, light work of your diverse punching needs.
The DocoPunch+ is packed with powerful features that make it a stand-out choice. It has a LCD touch screen control panel that walks you through all processes, allowing for job setup in just about two minutes. You can quickly calibrate the unit to your individual job requirements and get started punching right away, so there is very little down time. The die changeover is also incredibly fast, accomplished with a quick- change system in only a few seconds. This simple working process means that your operators don’t need any special training, so you can place the machine and begin working very quickly.
With the DocuPunch Plus binding punch, you can achieve accurate medium-level automatic punching of books of all kinds, on-demand, directly from your copier or printer. It can even handle mixed stock from 16 lb. bond to 110 lb. index. Positive sheet pickup pulls from the top of the pile and a three-sided jogger prepares the pages for perfect registration and perfectly placed holes, every time. As they exit, the stacks of punched pages are kept in perfect pre-collated order, making the finished pages on the exit tray easy to handle and move to the binding stage. It will also punch index tabs that have a 1/4-inch inset on the ends and are pre-collated into the finished sets.
The speed of this machine is another stand-out feature. It can achieve up to about 76,500 sheets per hour on the fastest setting, with three speed choices of 50, 60, or 75 cycles per minute. This makes it the fastest binding punch in its class of similar machines. The slower settings are usually used for mixed page punching, index tab punching, and other more unique sheets. The adjustments mean you can choose the setting that suits your job perfectly and provides you with the best results.
The pick thickness is adjustable from 0.4mm to 1mm, making for even more fine tuning, so you can produce maximum production output with trouble-free operation on various paper types. Even while the machine is in the middle of a job, you can make adjustments from the touch screen.
This freestanding document binding punch machine is attached to the base which has a storage compartment for various dies and supply items. The unit is on heavy-duty rolling castor wheels for easy mobility, with a locking feature to create a stable workstation. The footprint is incredibly small for the power that this industrial binding punch packs; it will fit well into even the tightest space restrictions.
Maintenance of the James Burn DocuPunch is also easy, as the machine will tell you, based on the volume run, when you should oil your die, sharpen the die pins, and when the bin is full. This removes the question of when and what preventative and general maintenance needs to be performed on the machine.

The James Burn Lhermitte DocuPunch Plus Staff Review
The newest automatic punch from renowned manufacturer James Burn is the DocuPunch PLUS. It is not surprising that this automated binding punch has quickly become a favorite all over the world because it provides production-level quality and output with a copier machine's footprint and usability. This flexible, ergonomic time-saver delivers hands-free punching of pre-collated books, presentations, reports, and even tabbed sheets in a free-standing equipment that quickly and easily meets your various punching demands.
The Best Things About the James Burn Lhermitte DocuPunch Plus
It's easy to operate this automated binding punch machine. All necessary settings are positioned up front, so all you need to do to run the machine is load your paper and select the appropriate setting. The equipment will take care of the rest. An automatic stop feature will cause the device to turn off even if there is a paper jam.
This automated punching device can punch up to 30,000 pages per hour and is very rapid. This machine may use a variety of punching patterns depending on the fitted dies. Die sets are offered for the following binding processes: plastic coil, double-o wire, velobind, plastic comb, and usage with loose-leaf binders (2-, 3-, and 4-ring).
With the DocuPunch Plus, several different types of paper can be used. Copier paper, cardstock, tabbed sheets, and cover stock can all be used with it. Paper as tiny as 5" x 5" and sheets as large as 13" x 12" can also be used with it. Pre-collated documents can also be simply punched using this equipment. A paper jogger that will jog your documents before they are punched is included with this device. This guarantees that the paper will be flat and that the hole will be placed precisely.
Things You Should Consider Before Buying the James Burn Lhermitte DocuPunch Plus
For medium-volume output, it is ideal for use in binderies or in-plant print facilities. Another top thing to consider is how expensive it is, with a price tag of over $30,000. Businesses with a tight budget, little demand, or insufficient space won't naturally invest in this unit, but print companies and publishers shouldn't think the cost is too high. especially in light of the potential operating cost savings from using a system like this. Also, you should remember that it's just a punching device. It won't bind your pages for you; you would need extra tools to binding your books after they've been punched. Another problem is that each punching die must be purchased separately.
The Bottom Line — Is the James Burn Lhermitte DocuPunch Plus a Good Buy?
For accurate, on-demand punching of coil, wire, comb, velo, and 3-hole binders, the James Burn Lhermite DocuPunch Plus is the perfect mid-volume automated binding punch machine. Your printer or copier will perform perfectly with previously printed and collated documents. The James Burn Lhermite DocuPunch Plus is a fantastic device despite being expensive and unable to bind your booklets due to its accuracy, speed, and ergonomic design. This will be a great investment if you need to punch a lot of paper frequently.
