Intelli-Bind IC210 Coil Binding Machine Review

Intelli-Bind IC210 Coil Binding Machine from Intelli-ZoneI had a chance today to play around with one of the newest additions to our coil binding lineup. This new machine is the Intelli-Bind IC210 coil binding machine (found here) from Intelli-Zone. After having played around with it for some time, I decided it was time to sit down and write a review. Enjoy!

I have since grabbed the Intelli-Bind IC210 and have it sitting here on my desk. To begin with, it is made out of metal components, but doesn’t have the heft of higher-end Akiles machines. It weighs in at 17 pounds shipped. This is light enough to be used on most desks and tables.

The IC210 is rated to be able to punch 10-15 sheets of paper at a time. I have personally tried the maximum 15 sheets and was able to do it, but it took some effort and I don’t consider it to be practical.

I would personally scale the punching capacity back to about 10 sheets at a time. This is the case with most binding machines. The maximum amount listed on a binding machine often requires more effort than the typical person would like to use.

The overall look of the machine is very nice. It features a black and grey color combination that blends in nicely with existing office equipment.  The grey color has a metallic reflective quality to it.

The IC210 does not have selectable disengaging punching pins, so it is most ideal for punching A4, A5 and 8 ½” x 11″ letter-size paper. Binding smaller custom-size booklets may result in half-punched holes. An adjustable margin depth makes it easy to adjust how far into the paper the holes are punched. This is especially nice for punching and binding books of varying thicknesses.

Having used this myself, I have to say that I would rate it for light-volume use. It isn’t designed to bind hundreds of books a day, but rather a few here and there. In all honestly, it is pretty good for the price.

You’ll have to pay several times more to get a machine that can be used for medium to high-volume use. The Intelli-Bind IC410 is a great example of a machine designed for medium to higher-volume binding. This is a great option if you need a little more binding capacity.

For the price, and considering it has an electric coil inserter, I consider the IC210 to be a great deal. If you plan on using it to bind the occasional report, presentation or booklet, you won’t be disappointed.

You can find the Intelli-Bind IC210 coil binding machine here. You can find our entire selection of coil binding machines here.
