Home Perforators Cummins-Allison Perforator

Cummins-Allison Perforator


The fastest, most productive way to mark documents clearly and permanently. A single actuation marks 1 to 25 sheets with letters and numbers formed by small holes or perforations. These easy-to-read markings cannot smudge or obliterate existing printing. And they cannot be erased or removed.

Single Variable Perforator Models

By far the most widely used type of perforator, these units can have top and/or bottom lines that have fixed (installer set) inscriptions, such as a top line reading "PAID" and a bottom line reading "ACME CO." The center line is variable with standard models offering variable date or variable numbering. In use, the top and bottom lines are always the same and the operator controls the center line.

Our most popular perforator model is the 304, which is specially designed to allow the top and bottom lines to be changed (requires a Cummins technician). Delivery of these perforator units is the fastest because they are frequently in stock at Cummins branch offices and can be field configured.

Multiple Variable Perforator Models

These perforators are available with one, two or three-line "inscriptions." The top and bottom lines are optional. Either or both can be factory-set or variable. The center line is always variable. These perforators are ideal for applications where they will be used for different functions by different departments/individuals.

The top or bottom variable lines use metal "keys" to control the inscriptions. These keys can be used to identify: the function, the department, the operator or whatever is needed. The versatility is unlimited. When the operator is identified in the inscription, you gain excellent control and accountability.
