Google Doodle Celebrates 131 Years Of Iconic Punching Machine
An office staple, Google celebrated 131 anniversary of the iconic punching machine.
The iconic punching machine, an office, school, and college staple for many generations, turned 131 years old on Tuesday.

Invented by Friedrich Soennecken, Soennecken filed a patent for the hole puncher or Papierlocher für Sammelmappen (paper hole maker for binding) on 14 November 1886.

Son of a blacksmith, Soennecken invented the hole puncher, along with a binder, and a special nib for ink pens that was suitable for calligraphy.



A hole puncher provides a simple solution to organise documents by punching holes in sheets of paper often for the purpose of collecting the sheets in a binder or folder. A typical hole punch has a long lever which is used to push a bladed cylinder straight through a number of sheets of paper.
