3 Intended use
The machine is only to be used as intended. It may only be used, operated and maintained according
to the information contained in this operating manual.
Only materials and staples defined for this machine may be used, as this could otherwise lead
to malfunctions. The stapling machine may only be used as specifically described in this
operating manual. Any other application is only permitted after a prior written approval from the
manufacturer.
Any other usage is not regarded as intended use and can lead to damage to persons or property. The
operator of the machine is solely liable for damages deriving from any non-intended use.
The operator must ensure that the stapling machine is only operated as intended and that all types of
hazards to life and health for the user or third parties are avoided. In addition, a compliance with the
accident prevention regulations and other safety regulations and laws must be observed.
If the stapler is abused for purposes other than the specified usage scenarios, this
can lead to accidents
3.1 Application area/designated use
Pneumatic blind stapler TOP SP P and TOP B P are used for stapling filled folding boxes made of
single and double corrugated cardboard. The TOP blind staplers are also available as manually
operated machines (single and two-handed). The TOP staple to be used is selected for the respective
cardboard quality. The staple should be bent within and the lowest cardboard layer without puncturing
it. This prevents a damaging of the packaged goods. If there is no danger of damaging the packaged
goods it is also possible to perform a stapling through all layers, meaning that the staple is bent over
outside of the lowest cardboard layer.
TOP SP P (TOP SPECIAL - labeled on the machine with TOP SP) is primarily used for applications
involving double corrugated cardboard. The correct staple for this is the TOP SP 18. But to be able
to also staple single corrugated cardboard, TOP SP 11 staples can be used without making
changes to the machine.
TOP B P
(labeled on the machine with TOP B) is primarily used for applications involving single
corrugated cardboard. For this, the following staples varieties with different leg lengths are available:
TOP B 10, TOP B 12.
But to be able to also staple double corrugated cardboard, TOP SP 15 staples can be used without
making changes to the machine.

With the TOP blind stapler a bottom stapling of empty boxes is also possible. The machine is hereby
introduced into the empty box and stapled from the inside outwards, or the empty carton is placed over
a buck and stapled from the outside inwards. After the empty carton is filled and the top stapled, the
bottom side can also be stapled just like the top after turning it over.
3.2 Ambient conditions
The machine should be operated at room temperature, protected against environmental influences.
Use within an explosive atmosphere is permitted only with prior consent and written permission of the
manufacturer.
3.3 Operating personnel
Only trained and knowledgeable staff is permitted to operate the machine.
Note: Competent, is someone who based on his training and experience has sufficient knowledge in
the field of stapling machines and is familiar with the relevant government industrial safety regulations,
accident prevention regulations and the generally accepted rules of technology (e.g. DIN standards,
VDE regulations) to the extent that he can assess the secure state of machines and in particular the
state of stapling machines.

Transport and initial commissioning
The stapling machine is delivered completely assembled and can be transported as a whole.
Transportation equipment can also be used for transporting the machine.
Before the stapler is put into operation, please read all instructions in this manual. This stapling
machine may only be put into operation by trained personnel.
To make the stapler ready for operation after delivery, the following tasks must be carried out:
- Check the equipment for completeness
- Insert the staples.
Connect the pressurized air and set it to 4 (min.) – 6 bar (max.)
The stapler is delivered ready for operation.
When the stapling machine is ready for operation, it is prohibited to touch the
stapling ejection opening or the running stapler! DANGER OFINJURY!

The machine should only be operated with an
interstaged maintenance unit (filter, water extractor, oil
vaporizer, manometer; not contained within the scope
of delivery) since dirt and water in the pressurized air
can lead to damages. We recommend suspending the
stapling machine on a balancer (weight equalization),
for example, the B 2/4. A spiral compressed air hose
DS 75 is used to supply the compressed air.

Functionality description
The machine is placed on the cardboard box to be stapled and then triggered. The
trigger time should not be less than 0.5 seconds, since this could otherwise lead to
malfunctions. The staple is hereby ejected from the staple opening and penetrates the
box, where it is bent and anchored.
The machine may only be lifted from the cardboard box after the
staple has been bent in the box meaning that the staple has
completely been ejected from the machine, since this could
otherwise lead to malfunctions.
The stapling will be more rigid if the machine is pressed onto
the cardboard box harder. The nose and the two markings on
the head piece to serve as a guide and mark the ejection point
of the staple. The machine should be pressed onto the
cardboard box in a slightly top-heavy way.
The penetration depth of the staples is determined by the
respective staple type. It is not intended for adjustments to be
made on the machine.
