Rhin-O-Tuff OD4800 Manual Interchangeable Die Modular Binding Punch Review

The Rhino Tuff OD-4800 is definitely something to be excited about. It is the only interchangeable die modular binding punch that is available on the market.The OD4800 was designed for small organizations that want to punch multiple hole patterns but either don't have the budget or don't produce the volume of binding needed to justify purchasing a large modular electric binding punch.

Overview:
  • The Rhino Tuff OD-4800 is definitely something to be excited about. It is the only interchangeable die modular binding punch that is available on the market.
  • This machine allows you to switch between multiple different punching patterns just like the larger Rhino electric modular punches. However, it comes at a fraction of the cost because it is a manual punch.
  • The OD4800 was designed for small organizations that want to punch multiple hole patterns but either don't have the budget or don't produce the volume of binding needed to justify purchasing a large modular electric binding punch.
  • However, the Rhino Tuff OD-4800 is built with the same heavy duty metal construction as their other ultra heavy duty interchangeable die modular binding punches.

Strengths / Features:

  • The biggest strength of the OD-4800 is its cost. This is the cheapest solution on the market for an organization that need to bind documents with multiple hole-patterns. With a retail cost of around eight hundred and fifty dollars including one die, this machine is about half the cost of the cheapest electric punch on the market.
  • The OD-4800 uses the same dies as the OD4000 electric binding punch. This means that there are twelve standard hole patterns that can be used with this machine. You can choose from hole patterns for spiral coil binding, plastic combs, double loop wire, Velobind and 3-hole punching. Plus, a number of custom dies are also available for this machine if you need to produce another hole pattern.
  • Like the other Rhino Tuff modular punches, you can bolt your finishing equipment to the side or top of this machine. It is designed to allow you to attach a coil inserter, wire closer or plastic comb opener to the top or side of the machine (depending on the device you are attaching). This can help you to save space while allowing you to create your own custom binding system.
  • The OD4800 is built with the same high quality components as the other machines in the Rhin-O-Tuff line of binding punches. It has a high quality metal case and heavy duty metal components that help to ensure that this machine will remain strong and functional for many years to come.

Weaknesses / Limitations:

  • Although the idea of an interchangeable die manual punch is a great idea it would have been nice to see a better punching capacity. The OD-4800 is rated to punch up to twelve sheets of paper at a time. This capacity is smaller than the capacity offered by most standalone manual binding machines. This smaller punching capacity will reduce the productivity of this machine especially for organizations that need to bind larger sized documents.
  • This machine comes with one die set but does not come with any finishing equipment. If you need to punch two hole patterns you will need to purchase another die set and a two pieces of finishing equipment. Even if you are a good shopper you will most likely spend as much on the accessories for this machine as you will on the machine itself. This is something to keep in mind when you are budgeting for a system such as this.
  • Although it seems like a great idea to attach a piece of finishing equipment to the top of the punch, it requires a special kit that must be purchased separately. Plus, the process of attaching the finishing device to the top of your machine can be a little tricky and takes a while.
  • The die change mechanism on the OD4800 uses two bolts to hold the die in place. You have to loosen these two bolts and then slide the die out of the side of the punch. The process should only take about two minutes. However, it is important that you get the two bolts tight. If they are not tight the die may move slightly during the punching process causing undue wear on your machine and reducing the accuracy of your punch.

Recommendation:

  • The Rhino Tuff OD-4800 is the only interchangeable die modular binding punch that is available on the market and it is a good choice for small organizations that need to produce multiple different hole patterns.
  • When this machine was released it was the only punch available on the market that could produce two hole patterns for binding. However, in the past year Akiles released their DuoMac series of binding punches. These allow you to pick two hole patterns of your choice and come with a wire closer and a comb opener (if necessary). These machines also offer a much better punching capacity than the OD4800. Organizations that just need to produce two hole patterns might want to consider the Akiles Duomac series of punches.
  • However, organizations such as small print shops or copy shops who want to produce more than two hole patterns may still want to consider the OD-4800. Just be sure to budget for the modular finishing equipment and extra die sets when you are considering your purchase.
