About the Renz AP360 Professional Automatic Punch
The Renz AP360 Compact is a high speed, professional automatic punch capable of producing up to 100,000 Sheets per hour without the need for a dedicated operator and with virtually instant setup.
Designed from the ground up with the high volume digital on-demand print market in mind but with speeds up to 100,000 sheets per hour, the AP360 is just as comfortable in a commercial bindery or print environment. As with the smaller AP300 Compact, the Renz AP360 Digital can be set up in less than a minute thanks to the intuitive colour touch screen which guides you through the complete process.
Unlike the AP300 Compact, however, the Renz AP360 Digital is available with a choice of feed and stacking options to cater for a wider variety of applications. The standard configuration incorporates a high capacity pile feeder, similar to that found on the AP300 Compact, with delivery into a Jogger Table at the rear of the machine. There is an option to improve the jogger delivery to a high capacity stacking which completely removes the need for operator intervention throughout the complete cycle of the machine. However, for ultimate productivity the optional Paternoster Feeder makes perfect economic sense, unlike high capacity feeders which allow you to stack up to 4,000 sheets in one stack, the paternoster feeder is actually 3 different feed stations that can be loaded individually without the need to stop the machine. This allows for continuous uninterrupted operation for the ultimate in high-speed production.
Tool changes can be completed in just a few minutes with minor punch pattern adjustments quickly taken care of thanks to Renz’s QSA (Quick Size Adjustment) technology which has been integrated into every tool style. Totally hands-free and virtually operator free operation, except for the loading and unloading an operator is not required, ensures productivity is kept to a maximum.
Built on heavy-duty bi-directional castors the Renz AP360 Digital is perfect for any commercial print or bindery environment. These machines are as easy to use an office copier to a desktop printer, push-button simplicity, literally load-up, press go, walk away!
Why buy the Renz AP360 Digital? For business owners
The Renz AP360 Digital has the ability to remove bottlenecks in your production processes and automatically produce up to 100,000 sheets per hour. Traditional methods of manually handling large volumes of paper around a desktop or semi-automated punch can prove tiresome and slow. The addition of a Renz AP360 Digital means that your operators are free to perform other tasks whilst the AP360 performs all the punching requirements of your business.
Infinitely flexible with a host of standard die tools for wire, comb, coil and 2/4 hole punching the AP360 enables all your punching needs to be brought in house. If you have special punch styles or specific tool requirements Renz can manufacture any tool to suit your desired punch format, this manufacturing flexibility further enhances the Renz AP360 Digitals appeal.
Why buy the Renz AP360 Digital? For operators
The patented twin finger pickup system ensures all stock types including mixed stock in the same pile can be handled with ease and without the need for any extra calibration or setup. The twin pickup system effortlessly separates a small pile, normally around 8-10 sheets, from the main feed stack by inserting a small steel beaked tool into the pile to gently split the set. Once the smaller beak is in place a larger glide beak, specially designed to glide into the stack without damaging the sheets, then completely separates the top 8-10 sheets, once split the rubber mallet head gripper clamps the stack and draws the set into the Ap360 transport belts.
The unique Renz feeder system requires zero setups or calibration regardless of stock type, weight, finish or print coverage thanks to the draw in the method it utilises every sheet no matter the type is fed with absolute ease. A further advantage of the AP360 Digital over the AP300 Compact is the standard inclusion of the turnover drum which rotates the sheet after the punching cycle and delivers the punched material to the output stack in the same order as it was fed into the machine, this ensures even complex numbered or alphabetically accurate work can be handled with ease.
Transparent perspex outer panels give the operator a clear view of the internal operation and an immediate insight into any problems within the machine. This simple design change allows quick location of any potential issues and jams whilst taking the guesswork out of the setup. As with the Renz AP300 Compact, the Renz AP360 Digital is centrally controlled via an intuitive colour touch screen display enabling the operator to choose between three speeds and FOUR Bite settings for the feed (0.4 to 2.4 mm). This versatility on the Renz AP360 Digital improves productivity and ensures greater security on a wider range of punching demands.
