Akiles WireMac-E 2:1 & 3:1 Pitch Wire Binding  MachinesProfessionals that frequently use binding machines (found here) know that not all binding machines are created equal. Some book binding machines have simple function features that are pretty straight forward, they have one style hole-punch, and one style of binding, and only fit one style of document. While other book binding machines have more complex bells and whistles in order for user to customize the machine for the unique specifications of a particular book or document.

If a company is only in the market to purchase a single binding machine then the purchasing agent needs to be aware of these differences so they don’t purchase a machine that is so basic that it won’t accommodate all their book binding needs. Likewise, it wouldn’t be prudent to purchase a machine with a lot of superfluous “whiz-bang” features that may never be utilized.

Fortuitous for purchasing agents, there are binding machines like the Akiles WireMac-E (found here) that offer an alternative to the ultra-simple and ultra-complicated. The Akiles WireMac-E is a heavy-duty twin-loop wire binding machine that offers a complete system of functions that are useful for every common book binding task and improve the end-user experience.

The hole punch mechanism of the Akiles WireMac-E binding machine can be easily adjusted from a 2:1 to a 3:1 pitch ratio to handle the capacity size of the document, booklet, journal, prospectus, report, guide, manuscript or periodical being bound together. The lower ratio will generally be the better choice for documents with a large number of pages.  In fact, the recommended capacity for the 2:1 ratio is over 250 pages, or 1 1/4 inch width, compared to the 225 pages or 9/16 of an inch width for the 3:1 ratio.

The Akiles WireMac-E binding machine is constructed with heavy-use die punches. Each of the punch dies can be engaged or disengaged to ensure that each punch will be clean and complete regardless of the size of paper being used. Some user features that the Akiles WireMac-E binding machine uses to make operation easy and concise include the side margin control, diameter scale and punching margin control. These features ensure that each punch will be consistent throughout the document, reducing the probability of user-error. The open punching throat enables various sizes of papers to be used in the machine. This paper compatibility feature is a real time saver and improves operator productivity.

The Akiles WireMac-E binding machine is designed to punch through 20 sheets of paper per punch and is built to handle commercial volume workloads. As such, the hole-punch mechanism is electric and operated by foot pedal. This allows the operator to free up his or her hands to continuously feed stacks of paper into the hole punch, or being attaching the binding wire.  The diameter scale on the binding machine helps to eliminate waste and improve production by indicating which size binding element that should be used to complete the document, based on its size.  The wire holder and wire closer control features on the Akiles WireMac-E holds the binding wire in place and makes the insertion through the pages of the document a much easier  process for the operator.

The Akiles WireMac-E binding machine was developed and produced by Akiles Products, Inc.  Based in California, Akiles Products manufactures some of the top selling binding and laminating equipment on the market.
