Challenge Drill Press

Printing Unlimited has a Challenge brand drill press in-house for drilling holes through stacks of paper and other materials. It allows for a variety of custom drill holes ranging from single to 4 holes. 

Paper drilling has several uses, including for filing large volumes of paper, for processing paper as loose leaves, for ring binder holes, and decorative purposes. The drill press manages paper drilling efficiently and expertly, reducing the manual labour of the project.

A drill press can do the work of a standard hole punch in a fraction of the time, drilling through large stacks of paper with clean precision.
