How To Keep Your Binding Machine Punching Pins and Dies Sharp

Coil Binding Machine Punching Pins / DiesAs with any piece of equipment, eventually it will need to be repaired or replaced. The same goes for binding machines. I have had several customers ask me if it is possible to sharpen a punching die after it becomes dull. Unfortunately there is no way to sharpen a binding machine punching die, but there is a way to help it last longer. Consider this preventative care.

I was talking with our Service Technician a few minutes ago and she informed me that there is a way to possibly keep binding punches sharper for a longer period of time. Now I can’t say for sure if this will work on all binding machines. She told me that many of our customers will punch a piece of wax paper once or twice a week.

Supposedly the wax will help keep the binding punches lubricated, cutting down on wear and tear. Our Service Technician told me that she has spoken with customers that swear by this and claim that this simple process has helped them keep their binding machines going five-plus years. This will supposedly also help cut down on stuck punching pins.

This is the first time I have heard of this, so I can’t say it will definitely work for you, but it seems to make sense. I hope this helps you out. You will find our entire selection of binding machine here. You can contact our Service Department by filling out this form.
