How To Use A Coil Binding Machine To Bind Books

Spiral & Coil Binding MachinesHave you lost your coil binding manual or do you simply want to learn more about how to use a coil binding machine? You’re in luck. This guide will teach you how to use a coil binding machine in 7 easy steps.

Coil binding ranks as one of the top three most popular binding formats used today. This is due to a lot of reasons. A few I can name off the top of my head include the durability of coils, the wide color selection, the price and the ability for the pages to turn a full 360 degrees.

As previously mentioned, I have created a guide that goes through step-by-step instructions on how to coil bind a book. Sure not all coil binding machines work the same, but most are based on similar concepts and functionality. Once you know how to use one coil binding machine, you will probably be able to easily use another.

Step 6. At this point you will want to insert a coil through the first three to four holes. If you have an electric coil inserter, you can now insert the coil the rest of the way. If you don’t have an electric inserter, manually spin the coil the rest of the way through the holes.

Step 7. Now take your coil crimping pliers and crimp / cut off the excess coil on both ends of the book. This will keep the coils from spinning back out. You are now done and ready to bind another book!
