Tamerica TCC-2100 Comb Binding Machine Review

Tamerica TCC-2100 Comb Binding MachineComb binding continues to be one of the most common binding formats used today. Are you in the market for a comb binding machine? One comb binder you may want to look at prior to making a purchase is the Tamerica TCC-2100 comb binding machine (found here). This is my review.

Tamerica is known for making some of the most affordable book binging machines available today. They manufacture a variety of different binding machines, most of which are targeted towards low to medium volume binding.

The TCC-2100 is a very affordable comb binding machine for what it does. A few features that set this machine apart from the competition are selectable punching dies and an adjustable margin depth. Both of these features make it possible to bind custom size books and books of varying thicknesses.

The punch on the TCC-2100 is able to punch through up to 20 sheets of standard 20# paper at a time. While is may be the case, I would recommend scaling that back to 15-18 sheets initially. I don’t like to max out the punching capacity on binding machines on a consistent basis.

It is able to bind books up to two-inches thick, which is pretty much the thickest comb binding book you can bind with any machine. Simply put your paper in and punch it until you have completed punching all the paper.

When the paper is done being punched, place a comb on the opener, open the comb and insert the open comb fingers through the punched holes. You then release the comb opener, which closes the combs shut. That’s it. You’re ready to move on to the next book.

The TCC-2100 uses the same handle for punching the paper and opening the combs. Some people like to have two different levers for the two different functions, but I don’t mind. You pull the handle back to punch and push it forward to open combs.

The Tamerica TCC-2100 only weighs 27 pounds shipped, so it can easily be placed on desks, tables and other surfaces. It is also light enough to move around.

The build quality on the TCC-2100 seems to be fine for low to medium-volume binding applications. I would not use this comb binder for high-volume binding. For one it is a manual machine and secondly it simply isn’t build for that kind of volume.

Overall I like this machine, as I do most Tamerica comb binding machines. For the price, it is a great fit for schools, churches, businesses and even for home use.
