Top 5 Best Heavy Duty Staplers

Friday, November 18th, 2011

Best Heavy Duty StaplersIf you need to staple 50 or more of sheets of paper together, you probably need a heavy-duty stapler. With dozens of models out there to choose from, it is difficult to find one that is up to the task of stapling on a frequent basis. At ABC Office, we offer a great selection of heavy duty staplers that are ideal for stapling stacks of paper, with many able to staple far into the paper for even packaging purposes. We have compiled a list of the top 5 best manually-operated heavy-duty staplers.

Heavy duty staplers come in two different configurations. This includes flat staplers, which is stapling paper horizontally, and saddle staplers, which staple paper (usually folded) along the spine. Some heavy-duty staplers can even do both. Regardless of the type of stapling you need done, we probably have a stapler for you. Our 2 most popular stapler brands are Staplex and Skrebba.

This is our list of the top 5 best heavy-duty staplers:

  1. Staplex HD-350 Heavy-Duty Manual Stapler – This heavy-duty stapler can stake through up to 185 sheets of paper at a time and features a 4 ½” throat depth. An adjustable side guide and backstop makes alignment easy.
  2. Skrebba W115 Heavy Duty Flat / Saddle Stapler – This stapler is great for flat or saddle stapling with a 55 sheet stapling capacity. It can be mounted to the side of a bench or table and is extremely affordable. It is excellent for frequent stapling operations.
  3. Staplex HD-150P Heavy-Duty Stapler – This stapler can be used with 6 different sizes of staples and has a 140 sheet stapling capacity. It also features a nice 4″ through depth and an adjustable side guide for alignment purposes. Best of all, the price is affordable.
  4. Skrebba W117L Long Reach Stapler – Skrebba  has developed a name for reliability and the W117L is no exception. This stapler can handle 150 sheets at a time and has an impressive 10″ stapling throat depth. Dual stops adjustfrom 1/8 inch up to 10 inches.
  5. Staplex HD High Capacity Stapler – This heavy duty stapler is easy to use and offers a nice blend of capacity and price. It can handle up to 80 sheets of standard copy paper at a time and has a 5 ¼” deep throat depth.

These staplers can be used for packaging purposes, paper stapling and much more.

Quickly Staple Header Cards and Clamshell Packaging

Monday, October 31st, 2011

Staplex S-620N Double Header Electric StaplerAre you trying to staple blister packaging to cards, header cards to plastic bags or are you trying to seal clamshell packaging shut? One product our customers finding extremely useful is our line of electric staplers from Staplex. These American-made staplers feature some of the best quality / track records around and can be customized in the factory to meet your needs.

We recently had a customer come to us looking for a way to seal clamshell packaging shut. They needed to place a few staples in strategic locations to keep the packaging shut for shipping and retail purposes. After asking a few questions, and working with Staplex, we were able to find the right electric stapler for them.

The customer’s clamshell packaging comprised of 0.0235″ and 0.0135″ plastic layers. These two layers, once folded and around the product, needed to be stapled shut. This involved placing two staples on each side of the clamshell, requiring a stapler with dual stapling heads. Because such thick plastic was being used, they needed something with a little extra oomph. They ended up buying the Staplex S-620NRDFS with RLD thick wire long length staples. The thick wire staples ended up being able to easily penetrate the plastic and clinch shut.

This is one of the above mentioned clamshell packages that were stapled shut using the S-620N.

Clampshell Packaging Staplex Electric Stapler

The Staplex S-620N double header stapler (found here), available in over 8 different variations, uses 2 simultaneous stapling heads that act in unison. Variations include models with foot switches, machines designed for header cards, thick wire variations and more.

We offer a wide range of Staplex electric staplers (found here) that can be used for a wide variety of stapling purposes. This includes stapling plastic, corrugated cardboard, chipboard, packaging cards, header cards and much more.  Because these staplers are made in the USA, the build quality is excellent and parts / servicing is readily available.

We have decades of experience in electric staplers and would be more than happy to help you find an industrial / commercial electric stapler for your manufacturing needs. Please feel free to call one of our stapling experts at 1-800-658-8788. They will be able to answer your questions, provide you with custom quotes and put you on the right path towards reliable packaging equipment.

Staplex SS-45NHL Heavy-Duty Commercial Saddle StaplerSaddle stapling has many benefits and is best suited for booklet making and stapling paper at odd angles. There are a lot of good saddle staplers out there (and a few lemons). We have been selling saddle staplers for decades and have refined our offerings to 3 highly rated models.

These saddle staplers have continued to show time and time again that they have what it takes to get the job done and last for years. This list includes two electric staplers and one manual stapler. I have personally used two of these staplers and vouch for the effectiveness of them all.

Staplex MA-500 Accuslitter Letter Opener Review

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

Staplex MA-500 Accuslitter Electric Letter OpenerDo you work in a mailroom or a business that has to open hundreds to thousands of letters a day? If so, you are in serious need of a high-quality letter opener. We have several to choose from. One model you may want to consider is the Staplex MA-500 Accuslitter letter opener (order today!). This is my review.

Staplex is well known for making staplers (as if the name didn’t give it away). I’m not talking about a cheap Swingline. I’m talking about heavy-duty electric staplers. Staplex also makes a couple of industrial letter openers. This includes the Staplex MA-500 Accuslitter.

The MA-500 isn’t a small letter opener you use to open a few dozen letters here and there. It is a commercial-quality machine designed to open 250 envelopes a minute up to 3/16″ thick. The electric-powered motor itself runs at a speed of 15,000 letters a minute. While not the fastest machine out there, it will easily keep up with most mailrooms.

This letter opener is designed to slit open envelopes rather than cut them open. This is done in an effort to not only keep things clean, but also to help protect the contents of the envelope. It’s a rather efficient system. The slit is placed in such a way that mail won’t accidentally fall out.

Because there is less cutting involved, the MA-500 Accuslitter is actually pretty quiet. While mailrooms aren’t the quietest places in the office, at lest the MA-500 won’t be contributing to the noise level.

At only 20 pounds, the Staplex MA-500 can be used on just about any workbench, table or desk. This also makes it very portable. There are really only two parts to the MA-500. You have the motorized portion of the machine and the receiving tray where the open mail is held. Many letter openers don’t come with a receiving tray.

Here are a few additional features you’ll find in the Staplex MA-500 Accuslitter:

  • AccuLloy blade
  • Impact resistant housing
  • 8 foot (2.4 m) grounded power supply cord
  • Thermal overload protection
  • Built-in resettable circuit breaker

The build quality on the MA-500 is great, which is the case with Staplex staplers as well. I would personally recommend this machine for use in most medium-volume mailrooms.
