Renz Inline 500

Renz Inline 500 - 19.68" Punch & Wire Binder


For RENZ RING WIRE from spools for books, calendars, and skip-binding.

The Inline 500 consists of the following components: ASM 500 punching module and ABL 500 automatic binding machine.

Large format range: 2.75" up to 19.68", diameters from 3/16″ to 1″.

The product to be bound is placed on the feeding table (or automatically fed from the collating machine), is then automatically punched, transported towards the binding element and closed.

The KAS 300 IL (calendar hanger tool) is required for producing calendars. Straight wire pieces are formed into the hanger shaped and are then automatically guided into the wire before colsing. By this patented RENZ®-techonolgy preparing and inserting the calendar hanger manually is a thing of the past.
