FAR 5-55

Fully automatic punching machine

FAR 5-55

Far 5/55 has been developed for fast punching of loose sheets in large quantities with any size and type of holes required for the different binding systems: wires, spiral, plastic combs. 
The Far 5/55 machine has been designed and manufactured with the utmost care in order to achieve top standard reliability and a long working life. 
Change over of the tools is very fast and safe.

How does it works: 

Far 5/55 can be fed continuously with material of variable thickness (paper and/or light cardboard). 
Sheets are safely picked-up by an apposite device in bunches of 1,5/2 mm. each time, centred and then punched with precision and accuracy. 
The sheets are solidly shift by four transport belts into the punching area where they are registered by a special device and then punched. Punched materials are preserved in numerical sequence and collected on a conveyor separately driven, in shingle style, so that the further procedure in made easier.
