Akiles CoilMac-EPI 4:1 Coil Binding Machine Video Demo

Akiles CoilMac-EPI 4:1 Pitch Electric Coil Binding MachineAre you coil binding books on a daily basis, perhaps hundreds of books a day? For this many books, reports or presentations, I recommend using a robust machine like the Akiles CoilMac-EPI coil binder. This coil binding machine is popular, well built and a huge hit with our customers. I have had the opportunity to use this machine on several occasions and had the chance to shoot a video demo of my experience.

While not fully automatic, several electric components make this machine fast. This includes a fully electric paper punch (4:1 pitch hole pattern) and an electric coil inserter. Combined, book binding takes just minutes. The 4:1 pitch hole pattern can be used to bind books as thick as 1 ΒΌ”, which is about 230 sheets of paper. An included foot pedal allows for two-handed operation.

The build quality on the Akiles CoilMac-EPI is extremely high. The thing feels like it weighs a ton. While it really only weighs 80 pounds shipped, the all-metal construction makes it feel like one of the most solid pieces of equipment I have ever used. Here is a video demo of me using it.

While not featured in this video, the CoilMac-EPI is also available in a variation called the CoilMac-EPI Plus. The only difference between the standard model and the Plus model is the hole design and the disengageable dies. The Plus uses oval holes, rather than round, and has fully disengageable dies where the standard model only has 5 disengageable dies. Other than that, they are pretty much the same machine and this video demo can really be used for both machines.

I highly recommend the Akiles CoilMac-EPI for medium to higher-volume binding. It is a solid machine, and simply put, it will last for years. You can find the Akiles CoilMac-EPI here and our entire selection of coil binding machines here.
