Intelli-Bind IC410 Coil Binding Machine Review

Intelli-Bind IC410 Coil Binding Machine from Intelli-ZoneAre you looking for an affordable coil binding machine that won’t break the bank, but still offers the quality you’re looking for? While this may sound like a difficult task, there are a few machines out there that fit the bill. One model you may want to seriously look at is the Intelli-Bind IC410 coil binding machine (found here) from Intelli-Zone. This is my review.

To begin with, the Intelli-Bind IC410 coil binding machine is one of the heaviest coil binding machines in its class and price range. Having handled this machine myself, I have to say that it feels and handles a lot like an Akiles machines, and Akiles machines have a great reputation.

The IC410 weighs in at 35 pound shipped. The heaviest part of the machine is where the punching die is located, which is a good thing. The punching dies, which do most of the work, have a very solid feel to them. The outer casing and internal components on the IC410 are made from metal.

The punching pins are capable of punching up to 18 sheets of paper at a time. The handle, as you can see from the picture, is leveraged in such a way that punching is very easy. It can also be used to punch card stock, laminated paper, clear covers and more. Just remember to scale back the amount of sheets being punched when punching thicker paper.

The IC410 uses a 4:1 pitch punching patter, which is four holes per inch. This is the most common hole pattern used in coil binding and supplies are very easy to find. This hole pattern allows the IC410 to bind books up to about 1 ¼” thick.

The Intelli-Bind IC410 features disengageable (selectable) punching pins. This makes it easier to punch paper without ending up with half-punched holes. My only complaint is that I wish it came with more. Right now it features a total of 6 selectable pins.

One of my favorite features on the IC410 is the electric coil inserter. This inserter is turned on by pressing a button. The inserter is quiet, powerful and quick. Having used coil binding machines with and without inserters, I have to say that an inserter really increases the coil binding speed. They are really convenient to use.

The IC410 is rated for low to medium-volume binding. This means you can use it throughout the day, but because it doesn’t have an electric punch, it probably isn’t best for high-volume binding.

I have to say, for a manual punch machine, that it is one of the easier coil binding machines I have used. From start to finish, I can bind a ¼” thick book in a minute. Speeds vary on user experience.

In conclusion, I highly recommend the Intelli-Bind IC410. It is solid, features great build quality and the price is very affordable for what you get.
