Whether you are a bindery, a printing firm, or some other sort of business service provider, you may be called upon to complete volumes of hole punching in order to finish a print job of some kind or another. This can be done in a number of ways, but it is a paper drill that ensures that the minimal amount of labor is needed to obtain accurate results. The Challenge EH-3C Paper Drill is offered by the manufacturer that invented paper drills back in the 1930s, and is a durable and rugged machine that will provide many years of service. This unit uses three strong drill heads (available in a range of sizes from 1/8 to 1/2 inch) to create holes in stacks of pages up to 2.5″ in thickness. No matter what weight, the Challenge EH-3C Paper Drill will create precise results. It relies on cast iron and steel components to ensure heavy duty performance. The drilling is done via hydraulics that can provide the kind of clean holes necessary for professional results.
The drill features adjustable speeds as well and works in a single stroke. This machine provides the highest level of safety with tapered drill bits seated into a rugged spindle. This is why it can handle around 25% more stock on each operation than many other paper drilling units. The Challenge EH-3C Paper Drill also has a special automatic return of the drilling heads to prevent any damage to the drilling block from contact with the strong bits. This prevents any dulling or constant need for sharpening when the bits keep bumping up against the rigid bed or block. The machine captures the chips created during drilling to eliminate mess and debris, and its efficient size makes it a very convenient choice too. The Challenge EH-3C Paper Drill requires less than four square feet of floor space and stands around five feet in total.
With the ability to handle up to 18 drilling procedures in one minute of time and with fully adjustable back gauges and individual heads, it is a machine that can give customized results too. When your firm demands paper drilling of any sort of material, you want to choose a machine that provides specific and adjustable results. The Challenge EH-3C Paper Drill can meet many demands and perform consistently over the long term thanks to its durable design and flexible components.
