We have had several people approach us regarding their GBC Pro-Click machine that has busted. Their challenge? They can’t get the parts to fix it.
This is not the first time we have heard this from GBC customers. Parts replacement seems to be a problem for machines that are no longer in production.
Unless you are trying to double your production and increase margins on your production work, why buy a new machine if you can simply repair what you have?
In several situations, this has not worked out for some of our GBC customers looking for parts.
So, instead, they are looking for a machine that can still use the GBC Pro-Click binding spines with another machine that can do the punching. The good news is there is a solution.
A Rhin-O-Tuff binding machine is a good replacement. Rhin-O-Tuff is a commercial binding machine that has inter-changeable dies for coil, wire or comb. In addition, they have over 20 different dies to support your binding.
If you are using a GBC Pro-Click spine, you only need to use the Rhin-O-Tuff wire punch die. If you ever need a repair, there are always parts available. Chances are, you will not because Rhin-O-Tuff is a pretty solid machine for heavy duty work. You can download their die_punch_patterns catalog here, or visit the Rhin-O-Tuff die listings on our website.
So, no worries GBC customers, there is an alternative out there to support your continued use of the GBC Pro-Click binding spines.
