HS 542 – The universal wire binding machine

The HS 542 is a fully or half automatic single and double wire binding machine (with or without punching station) which produces double wire, spiral and plastic spiral bindings. It was designed for book binderies, trade finishers and stationery manufacturers. By using an optional guilloutine, the HS 542 can work not only from pre-cut articles but also from strip layers. By adding a converting part it can even work from the reel. The HS 542 can also be equipped with all binding options individually or completely.
