Punch operation

Choose between manually operated models with a handle or effortless electric punching for frequent or high volume binding needs

Punch capacity

Put the number of sheets of 20 lb bond paper that can be punched at a time

Inserter operation/capacity

Choose between manual hand inserters or electric coil inserters for frequent or high volume binding needs. You can insert up to 2” diameter coils by hand or up to ⅞” coils using the electric coil inserter.

Open throat design

An open throat binding machine is one that has an open-ended punching channel that can accommodate over-sized documents. Instead of having a solid piece of plastic or metal on the outside of the punching channel, binding machines with an open throat have a small gap that allows long sheets of paper to extend past the edge of the machine during the punching process.

Die type

If you tend to bind books that are sizes other than standard 8-1/2 x 11 in. Letter size (such as 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 in. Half Letter, for example), you greatly benefit from using disengaging pins because you can eliminate a partially punched hole on the outermost top and bottom edges of your book.

Die shape

Round holes are most common, however oval holes are preferred by some for easier page turning and ease of inserting the coil.

Foot pedal

Enables you to operate the coil inserter and/or punch with your foot, leaving your hands free to speed up the binding process.
