What Is A Modular Binding Machine?

Although the term modular binding machine isn’t commonly used, you may have seen it come up from time to time while researching binding equipment. These machines, often referred to as binding machine punches, have their place in the binding world and are very convenient to use. I will go into detail on exactly what a modular binding machine is and why you may need one in this article.

The most basic modular binding machine includes a base and a punch. The punching die itself is usually interchangeable. This means you can pull out the punching die and switch it for another. This allows you to punch holes for a variety of binding formats. This includes comb binding, wire binding, coil binding, VeloBinding and much more.

Swappable punching dies are not only convenient for binding in multiple formats, but also allow you to get a replacement punching die if one ever breaks or dulls. As a result, modular-binding machines can last for years, some of which have been known to last 10+ years. The punching mechanism is either manually or electrically operated.

As you may know, punching paper is only half the binding process. A comb opener, wire closer or coil inserter may be needed to finish the job. The finishing components, with regards to modular binding machines, can be attached to the punching base. This means you can comb bind books, swap the die and the attachment, and wire bind books.

Modular binding machines are ideal for people who need multiple binding formats. They are also great for people who need high-volume binding capabilities. Some of the high-end modular binding punches can punch up to 55 sheets of paper at a time. These binding punches are also ideal for high volume paper punching.
