Akiles RubiCoil Spiral Binding Machine Review

Akiles RubiCoil Spiral / Coil Binding MachineIf you like spiral binding (aka coil), but you don’t have the need for a big massive machine, you may want to consider using the Akiles RubiCoil (found here). I have used this spiral binding machine and this is my review.

Akiles is well known for the build quality of their machines. Akiles machines are made from metal components, unlike much of the competition’s plastic machines. It’s usually pretty safe to say that an Akiles machine will last for years.

The RubiCoil is an entry-level spiral binding machine designed for use in the home or for occasional spiral binding jobs around the office. It is ideal for binding a couple to a dozen books a day. Any more than that and you may want to consider looking at an Akiles CoilMac (found here).

The RubiCoil is very stable and durable. The metal chassis on the RubiCoil eliminates play during binding. The punching die is machined to a 4:1 pitch, which means the RubiCoil is designed to punch four holes per inch of paper.

The RubiCoil is manually operated. Paper is punched by pulling a handle, up to 10 sheets of standard copy paper. I like the “U” shaped design of the handle because it allows the operator to pull down on the lever from any angle, regardless of hand preference. The paper punching is easy and doesn’t require a lot of effort.

Coils on the RubiCoil are manually inserted. The RubiCoil has a coil-inserting table on the front of the machine that makes manual coil insertion easier. This table has a channel dip in it that helps guide the coil. While I would love to see an electric coil inserter, it simply isn’t possible for the price.

Overall I like the RubiCoil. It is important to take into consideration that it is designed for low-volume use though. You certainly don’t want to use it for daily jobs of dozens of books. It simply isn’t designed to handle that much use.
