The solution for in line signatures finishing

  • Punching width : from 140mm (5.5″) to 420mm (16.5″)
  • Punching thickness : up to 3.0mm
  • Mechanical speed : selectable up to 12,200 cycles / hour
  • Punching output : up to 195,000 sheets / hour

All above outputs are based on 80gsm plain paper and will vary pending on the nature of the document, the operator skills, the work organisation. Best punching quality is obtained with paper thickness not exceeding 1.5mm


The EM range features the state of the art modular system for punching and cutting signatures.

The EM450 is the entry level for signature punching applications with all format settings done by manual adjustments and max speed of 10,000 cycles / hour. It can also be combined with the EMC module equipped with lateral knives (1 right, 1 left and 1 central knife) to trim signatures punched on the EM450.

The EM450 can be run in line behind any folding machine through the dedicated RS450 interface. It can also be fed off line from the SF feeder.

The EM450 can be operated with a single action tool for punching only applications or with a double action tool which allows to punch on the folded edge a perforation line and on the unfolded edge one or more tear-off perforations, straight cuts or index tabs in one sequence.

The EM450SP has got all set up programmable and fully dynamic. Its speed of up to 12,000 cycles / hour enables it to be run in line with the latest generation of high speed folding machines through the dedicated RS450 SP interface.

Like the EM450, the EM450SP can be operated with a single action tool or with a double action tool.
