The Heavy Duty Ultima (HD 7700) electric punch has been designed to punch
most any job that may pass through your bindery or office. No matter what type
of binding you need to carry out, the HD 7700 can punch the job. It will punch
from 25 to 55 sheets on the 11” edge of 20lb bond (80gsm) copy paper with our
extra capacity dies or 25-40 sheets with standard dies (The number of sheets
depends upon die pattern used). The maximum punching length is a 14” (356
mm) format. Any sheet smaller can be punched for the minimum size. The HD
7700 utilizes quick-change die handles for quick die installations and removal.
Extra capacity dies come with the HD 7700 when purchased.

1) Important Safety Notice!
Make sure you read this section very carefully! Learn to recognize
this Safety Alert Symbol. The HD 7700 has been designed to
provide a very high level of protection to an operator. Follow the
guidelines below while installing, operating and maintaining your
machine.
♦ Plug the machine into an outlet that provides a 15-amp service (16 amp for
European installations) that is protected at the customer’s circuit box.
♦ Always replace fuses or circuit breakers with the correct amperage and type.
♦ If machine cycles on its own, call dealer immediately for service.
♦ Never bypass top cover switch or reverse knob switch. Doing so may result
in personal injury!
♦ Turn power switch off before removing a die or performing maintenance.
2) Placing your machine in the proper location:
Before lifting machine, turn power off. Remove plug from electrical
supply for personal safety. The machine is very heavy! Never
attempt to lift machine by yourself. It needs two people to lift
machine. It should be lifted at each side of the back end and
each side of the front end.
Place the machine on a hard level surface placing the foot pedal on the floor in
front of the machine. Set aside some room for the books that have to be punched
and also some room for the books that had already been punched.
3) Providing power to the machine: Diagram 1
Power cord shall be certified for the country where the
machine will be installed.
Plug one end of the power cord into the back of the machine. The
other end goes into the wall outlet. Install the foot pedal plug into the
receptacle, which is located on the back of the machine. The
optional palm switch can be plugged into the same receptacle if this option is to
be used. Turn machine “On” with rocker switch located at rear of punch. The
green power indicator on front panel will be illuminated when punch is ready.
Diagram 1
HD 7700 Issue 1
Page 4
4) Die installation:
♦ HD 7700 Diagram 2
Make sure the machine is turned off before installing die. Install the die (1)
by sliding it into the opening of the machine located on the right-hand side of the
machine. Make sure the punch pin retainer assembly (2) slides into the slot of
the pusher bar. Push up on both quick-change die handles (3) and lock the die
in position. Make sure there is no paper dust in the machine die slot before
installing the die. Machine will not operate unless quick-change die handles
are in the locked position. Red die clamp indicator will go off, when
handles are in the up, locked position.
♦ Extra Capacity Die
Extra capacity dies are exactly the same as standard dies with one exception.
The opening in the die will accept more paper. These dies are used for high
production jobs and can punch from 25 to 55 sheets on the 11” edge of 20 lb.
(80gsm) bond copy paper (The number of sheets depends upon die pattern
used). Extra capacity dies come with the HD 7700 when purchased.
♦ Comb Die
Comb dies are slightly different from the rest of the dies because they have an
adjustable backstop. To change the position of the hole placement (margin) to
the back edge of the sheet, first install the die into the HD 7700 and secure the
die in place. There are four placement positions. Choose the position best suited
for your job. Pull or push on the black handle, which is part of the die. Push the
handle toward the left for the larger combs and pull it out to the right for
smaller combs. The exact position will be left up to the operator’s preference.

♦ Removing Punch Pins:
Make sure the machine is turned off before
removing the die. To remove a punch pin
from the die, disengage both quick change
die handles and slide the die to the right until
the die is completely removed from punch.
Step 1. Remove top pin retainer by pushing
down first, and then pulling away from bottom
pin retainer to expose punch pins.
Step 2. Remove desired punch pin.
Step 3. Place edge of top pin retainer along
punch pins and press down while pulling pin
retainer back to original position.
Step 4. Install die into machine as described in
previous section.
HD 7700 Issue 1
Page 6
Diagram 3
♦ Die maintenance:
The die will have to be removed before maintenance can be performed. Using
the oil provided with the machine, squeeze the plastic bottle over the oil slot that
runs the entire length of the die. Too much oil can run onto the paper being
punched. After oiling, always punch scrap paper to remove excess oil!
5) Setting the Accu-Set paper stop: Diagram 4
The Accu-Set paper stop should be adjusted so the pointer of the stop lines up
with the format and type of die being used. There are two ways to set this stop.
The first is a course adjustment to bring the pointer close to the desired setting
and the second is a fine micro setting adjustment for exact registration. To set
the course adjustment, lift up on the pointer assembly and place the pointer of
the assembly close to the format and type hole pattern to be punched. After the
pointer is close to the desired setting, turn the fine adjustment knob located on
the left side of machine to bring the pointer to the exact setting. Some fine
adjustment may be necessary after the first sheet is punched.

6) Punching Paper: Diagram 5
Position the paper that has to be punched either to the left, right or on top of the
machine. This is up to the individual operator. Remove some sheets (When
punching acetate and heavier stock, punch less sheets) from the pile and
slide it down vertically into the opening of the die. When the paper is fully down,
slide it to the left so it comes in contact with the paper stop. Make sure all the
edges of the sheets are flush by tapping the top and the right hand side of the
sheets before pressing the foot pedal or pressing the palm switch. After punching
the sheets, place the paper on the punched pile making sure the sheets remain
in exact order.
Diagram 5
Use the side of your right hand to activate
punch when palm switch is installed.

7) Removing paper waste: Diagram 6
The paper waste is removed by pulling the paper waste drawer up and toward
you. The drawer is located conveniently in the front of the punch. This drawer
should be checked frequently. Look through the clear cover while punching and
empty prior to filling up and spilling into machine.
Diagram 6
When installing chip drawer back into machine,
line up the locating pin on drawer with slot on
machine.
Diagram 6a
HD 7700 Issue 1
Page 9
8) Paper Jam: Diagram 7
The HD 7700 uses a circuit board for controlling its cycle and has the ability to
automatically reverse the punch pins to their starting position if too much acetate
or paper was inserted. There are times when punching too much acetate, the
punch pins may not reverse all the way out. Use the procedure described below
for manually reversing the machine.
When a paper jam occurs, the circuit breaker or fuse protecting the
motor may have to be reset or replaced. This is normal and allows
maximum protection for the punch motor.
♦ Locate the reverse knob on the left side of machine.
♦ If the punch stalled before pins were completely through the paper, turn
the reverse knob counterclockwise to reverse punch pins out of paper.
♦ If the punch stalled with the pins all the way through the paper and on its
return stroke, turn the reverse knob clockwise to continue the punch pins
to there starting position.
♦ Press the foot pedal or palm switch to see if the machine operates. If yes,
continue punching the job. If the machine does not function, see replacing
the fuses or resetting circuit breaker in the troubleshooting section of this
manual.

The combo binding station is a base unit that supports three different binding
modules. Each module attaches in a matter of minutes. The attachment
procedure will be located in the module instructional section of this manual or in
the separate manual for the module.
Diagram 8
OD 4300 Coil Inserter
The Plastic Spiral inserter will bind books up to 1-1/8” (28.6mm) thick using coil
diameter up to 1-1/4” (30mm). The unit attaches to the right side of the Combo
binding station using two wing nuts for easy installation.
HD 7700 Issue 1
Page 15
OD 4200 Wire closer
The wire closer is capable of binding books up to 1-1/8” (28.6mm) thick. It uses
wire sizes from 3/16” to 1-1/4”. It has an adjustable closing bar for the different
size wires. Each end can be adjusted independently to obtain a perfect close.
The unit attaches to the rear of the Combo binding station using four knobs.
OD 4400 Comb opener
The comb opener will bind books up to 2” (51mm) thick. The opener has an
adjustable ring opener control for exact book placement. The unit attaches to the
rear of the combo binding station using four knobs.
Modules can be purchased separately at any time to be used in conjunction with
the OD 3500 combo binding station. Each unit can be installed in five minutes.
The coil inserter can be attached and kept on the Combo binding station
permanently. If the Wire closer module is installed on the Combo binding station
and the Comb opener module is required; the wire closer will have to be removed
so that the comb opener can be installed. The opposite is also true. It only takes

Setup Instructions: Diagram 10a, 10b, 10c, 10d & 10e
a)
Determine the correct coil size.
Use a coil that is at least 3/32” (2.5mm) larger than the book thickness for
coil sizes up to 3/4” (20mm). After 3/4”, use a coil size of at least 1/8” over
the book size. The larger the coil compared to the book, inserting will
become much easier.
b)
Determine the correct size mandrel.
There are a total of nine mandrels, which are used for coil sizes 3/16”
(5mm) up to 1-1/4” (30mm). Use the table below, to choose the correct
mandrel size to coil size.

Installing the mandrel on the machine.
Keep all clothing and jewelry away from drive wheel during coil
insertion!
♦ Place the mandrel (1) into the mandrel holder bracket (2) making
sure the beveled edge of the mandrel is facing the right side of the
machine. Both guide pins located on the mandrel need to line up with
both slots on the mandrel bracket. Use the black knob (3) to tighten
the mandrel in place.
♦ Adjust the height of the mandrel so the center of the mandrel is the
same height as the center of the book.
HD 7700 Issue 1
Page 18
d)
Adjusting the mandrel bracket.
♦ The mandrel assembly-adjustment knob (4) is located on the right
side of the coil inserter. Move the mandrel bracket assembly toward
the drive wheel for small mandrels and away from the drive wheel for
the larger mandrels.

Diagram 10a
♦ The mandrel holder bracket-adjustment knob (5) can be adjusted to
the left or the right so the leading edge of the coil lines up with the first
hole of the book.
e)
Adjusting the paper stop.
Place the book on top of the combo binding station with the right side of
the book against the paper stop bracket. Adjust the paper stop (6) so the
holes of the book hang over the edge of the combo binding station. The
holes should hang over the edge just enough for the coil to clear the
edge of the combo binding station. Tighten the knob located on the
paper stop bracket. It may be necessary to fine-tune this after a few books
are bound for exact placement.
f)
Adjusting the front table / lexan guide.
The front table/ lexan guide (7, 7a & 7b) has two purposes. When the
lexan is rotated on top of the coil (7a), it helps assist the coil into the
book. Use the lexan guide with all book sizes (thickness) until you notice a
problem with the coil slipping on the drive wheel or entering the holes in
the book. When the lexan guide (plastic) is in the open position, rotated
HD 7700 Issue 1
Page 19
away from the machine, it acts as a support table (7b) for larger books.
For books over 9/16”, it may be necessary at times to split the book in half
using the table to support one half of the book, then finish the inserting of
the coil. This method improves productivity.

g)
Forward / off / reverse switch.
The forward / off / reverse (8) switch has three positions. The center
position of this switch is the off position and should be placed in this
position when not using the machine. Press the left side (forward) of the
switch and the coil will rotate into the book. Press the right side (reverse)
of the switch and the coil will exit the book. The reverse feature allows the
coil to be removed from the book. Sometimes this will be necessary when
the leading edge of the coil misses a hole of a single sheet.

Diagram 10c
HD 7700 Issue 1
Page 20
h)
Inserting a coil.
Place the coil on the mandrel by sliding the open end of the coil onto the
beveled end of the mandrel. Turn the coil so it threads onto the mandrel
post (9) and is in front of the drive wheel by one coil. Make sure the
forward / reverse switch is in the forward position. Pull the motor handle
(10) down to start the motor and engage the drive wheel (11) to the coil.
Rotate the coil so it comes close to the edge of the book, but not past the
book. With your right hand, hold the leading edge of the coil and thread it
though the first two holes of the book. This helps align the holes of the
book. Rotate the lexan guide on top of the coil. Pull the handle down
gently at first making sure the coil is rotating into the book without missing
holes in the sheets or covers. Continue until the coil is past the left side of
the book by about one or two coils.

Diagram 10d
i)
Drive wheel stop screw.
The drive wheel stop screw (12) will prevent the wheel from pressing to
hard on the mandrel. It is very important not to have too much pressure on
the mandrel when inserting the larger coils. If the leading edge of the coil
stops on a misaligned sheet, the coil wants to tie itself into a knot between
the book and the end of the mandrel. Setting the stop screw will prevent
this from happening most of the time. To set the stop screw, turn it
clockwise to push the wheel away from the mandrel. Load the coil onto the
mandrel and turn the stop screw counter clockwise while holding down on
HD 7700 Issue 1
Page 21
the motor handle (10) until the drive wheel touches the coil. Try a few
books and readjust if necessary.
If the mandrel bracket is adjusted after the stop screw has been
adjusted, it will be necessary to readjust the stop screw.
13
j)
Cutting a coil.
Diagram 10e
There are special cutter crimper pliers that are used to terminate the ends
of the coil. After the coil is cut, the sharp end of the coil will tuck itself
under the inside of the coil opening. To use the cutter, make sure the red
dot (13) is facing up. Place the cutter on the edge of the right hand side of
the book. Open the cutter enough so that the end of the cutter enters the
coil by about a 1/4”. Make sure the cutter is level with the book before
you cut. As you squeeze the cutter you may notice the coil wants to twist.
You can support the coil with your fingers as you cut to help stabilize the
coil. Turn the book over and repeat these steps on the opposite end of the
book. Always make sure to close crimping cutters completely.

Most of the problems you may encounter are due to setup errors. There
is one fuse located at the rear of the OD 4300 inserter that can be
replaced by the customer. Below is a troubleshooting guide to help you
through most of the problems that may be encountered.
Troubleshooting
Symptom
Drive wheel does not rotate.
(There is a thermal overload
built inside of the motor. Wait
several minutes before
checking the fuse)
Possible Cause
1) Machine is off. (Switch is
in center position)
2) Machine not plugged in.
3) Blown Fuse.
Coil tightens on the mandrel
when inserting.
1) Mandrel is too small for
coil.
Coil stops before it is
completely through the book.
1) The holes in the book are
misaligned.
2) The coil is beyond drive
wheel.
HD 7700 Issue 1
Page 23
Action
1) Place switch in either
Forward or Reverse
position.
2) Check both ends of power
cord.
3) Check Fuse 1. (5amp)
1) Select proper size
mandrel. (See page 18)
1) This is normal. Try moving
the book around so the
coil rotates in the holes.
2) Coil length may need to
be longer for that
particular book. Note:
Larger coils can wind
themselves open so the
length is actually less.

b) Inserting the wire into the book.
First, prepare book completely assembled with front cover facing up. Turn the
back cover over keeping the binding edge the same and place it on top of the
front cover. This will position the binding edge of the wire at the inside cover
at the back of the book. Turn the book over with covers on bottom. Place the
book on the edge of a table so the holes overhang the table a slight amount.
Insert the narrow loop into the holes of the book with a slight rotating action.
Start with the left side and slide your finger along the wire to thread it into the

c) Setting the closing bar height.
The closing bar is adjustable on each end allowing the operator to achieve a
perfect close at each end of the book. Pull the handle on the closer all the
way down and adjust both knobs (3) so the top edge (4) of the closing bar
lines up with the line (5) next to the wire size you want to close.

d) Closing the book.
With the handle in the full upright position place the book so the open end of
the wire is firmly pressed against the back plate (6) inside the closing
machine (see diagram 12c on page 28). The narrow loop (7) should be on
the top of the book while pushing the book against the back plate. Hold the
book as you pull the handle (8) down. Inspect the close and readjust the wire
if necessary. When the wire is closed properly, the narrow loop overlaps the
wide loop by about 1/32” to 1/16” along the entire length of the book. An
indication that the wire is not closed tight enough is when the covers or
sheets fall out of the book.

b) Placing the comb onto the rake. Diagram 14
Place the comb onto the rake with the fingers of the comb facing the front of
the machine. The solid section of the comb will be facing the rear of the
machine. Pull the opener handle down to open the fingers of the comb.
c) Setting the comb opener stop. Diagram 13
The comb opener stop knob (4) is located on the rear of the comb opener.
Set the comb opener stop by turning the knob counter clockwise so the comb
opens far enough to place a book on the fingers of the comb, but not to far so
the comb is lying flat with no room for the book.

d) Placing the book onto the comb. Diagram 14
Place the holes of the book on the fingers of the comb. A slight rotating of the
book will help guide the holes onto the comb. Return the opener handle to
close the comb into the book. The binding process is now complete.
e) Margin setting.
The comb die has an adjustable backstop that allows the hole to edge margin
on the paper to vary. Below are the recommended positions for the various
size combs. The exact position can be left up to the operator.
1st position is handle pushed all the way to the left.
1ST position
2nd position
3rd position
4th position
Comb sizes 1/4” through 5/16”
Comb sizes 3/8” through 1/2”
Comb sizes 9/16” through 3/4”
Comb sizes 7/8” through 2”
Comb dies are the only kind to have an adjustable backstop. To change the
position of the hole placement (margin) to the back edge of the sheet, first install
the die into the HD 7700 and secure in place. There are four placement
positions. Choose the position best suited for your job. Pull or push on the black
handle, which is part of the die. Push the handle toward the left for the
smaller combs and pull it out to the right for larger combs. The exact
position will be left up to the operator’s preference.
