    Akiles WireMac 2:1 / 3:1 Wire Binding Machine Review

    Creating your own product is fun and fulfilling. One hobby that I enjoy, and many businesses perform on a daily basis, is bookbinding. It's fun to produce something that is tangible and looks professional. One of the best-looking binding formats is wire binding. It's clean, looks great and is ideal for the most important presentations and reports. One machine I personally recommend using is the Akiles WireMac wire binding machine. I have used this machine myself and this is my review.

    To start with, I have to say that Akiles is one of the best binding machine manufacturers around. They manufacture comb, wire and coil binding machines and they almost always turn out to be high quality products. The reason I bring this up is because if the Akiles WireMac 2:1 or WireMac 3:1 doesn't fit your bill, you should still consider an Akiles Machine.

    The WireMac 2:1 and WireMac 3:1 wire binding machines are designed for low to medium-volume book binding. That isn't to say that the WireMac is a low-volume machine, but it features a manual punch. That means the WireMac's biggest limiting factor to speed is the operator. The machine itself could stand up to higher-volume binding, but the operator would probably get tired.

    You can get the Akiles WireMac in two different designs. One design comes with a 2:1 pitch hole pattern and the other comes with a 3:1 pitch hole pattern. The pitch you use depends entirely on your preference. I can say, however, that the 2:1 pitch has been more popular, due in part to the fact that a 2:1 pitch hole pattern can bind more paper.

    Using the WireMac 2:1 or WireMac 3:1 is extremely easy. Simply take a stack of paper (up to 20 sheets of 20 lb paper) and punch it. Keep punching paper until you have the designed amount punched. You then insert a wire binding element into the punched holes and close the wire shut using the built-in wire closer. Sounds easy, right? It really is an easy machine to use.

    Don't let this machine's simplicity fool you. The Akiles WireMac also packed with features. One of my favorite features is the selectable punching pins (aka disengageable dies). This allows you to shut of any of the 40 dies (3:1 pitch) or 27 dies (2:1 pitch). This eliminates half-punched holes and makes it possible to bind books of varying sizes. This machine has a 14" punching length. Because it is open ended, you can technically punch paper even longer than 14".

    I also really like the adjustable margin depth and diameter selector. Both of these features make it extremely easy to bind books of varying thicknesses.

    The WireMac has been around for years and we have sold untold amounts of these machines to customers. Akiles has a great track record with our customers and the WireMac 2:1 / 3:1 has proven to be extremely reliable, lasing for years without any issues.

    Having handled this machine myself, I can tell you that the Akiles WireMac is solid. The all-metal construction really helps improve the book binding experience. I highly recommend the Akiles WireMac machine for those interested in binding books, reports and presentations.
