Record Punching Machine

Record Punching Machine

We now manufacture a VINYL RECORD HOLE PUNCHING MACHINE which is used to punch out the 105mm diameter centre hole so that records can be remelted and recycled.

Our machine is unique in that we can punch both TRIMMED & UNTRIMMED records simply by turning a switch.

We have centre location system so untrimmed records especially can be located regardless of how much irregular watse surrounds the perimeter of the record.

This machine plugs into an air compressor and a 240V power outlet.

We have recently upgraded our Record Hole Punching Machine so that it is now:

1. Very Compact design.

2. Hydro-pneumatic - bigger tonnage, less noise.

3. PLC driven and all electric.

4. Quiet operation so can be used in more confined locations.

5. Easier to ship as bottom frame is detachable.

6. More reliable.

7. Easier to operate, just place record in and once record located on centre, punching is automatic.

8. Will punch 105mm holes, centrally located.

9. Can punch trimmed and untrimmed records. You just change selector which drops down rear stops for trimmed records for easier location, and these rear stops are retracted for untrimmed records.

Both operations very easy to use.

10. No Foot pedal.

11. Fully Automatic - just plcae record into machine and it will automatically punch. Punching sequence is PLC controlled therefore no mechanical valves etc.
