Punched cards

Sheet supply

Sheets are stacked up on a mobile trolley and afterwards are placed in the entrance of the feeder. After the job starts, the sheets are automatically separated from the pile and are carried to the Y-axis adjustment to check the correct positioning before being punched. At the same time it is checked whether two sheets lie on top of each other to make sure that only one sheet set or laminated sheet is processed.


The integrated guillotine divides full format sheets so that these can be further processed with the punching unit. This offers variable advantages, because large-size punch sheets can be processed directly in a continuous workflow without the need for cutting them to the format necessary for the punch in a previous working step.

Punching unit

The punch is driven by a high performance heavy-duty servo motor. Before punching, every card row is identified to guarantee the highest possible accuracy. Cards of every sheet are collected  under the column rack after punching and the card grid scrap is collected in a waste container. Optionally a perforation module can be integrated. With which, among other things, holes can be punched out for key fobs, gift cards, or other small items.

Product output

Punched cards are automatically stacked in magazines. A buffer for up to 5 magazines is integrated as standard. When a magazine is filled, it is carried to the output, while an empty magazine from the supply buffer is brought into position to take up the next cards. Moreover, on the product output, different assortments can be carried out according to machine layout. This can be decided by the operator at the start of the job.
