The Akiles iWire Wire Binding Machine is perfect for low- to mid-volume wire binding needs. The individually cast-hardened and heat-treated steel punching dies ensure many years of trouble-free operation and easy punching. The simple 2-step setup & 10-sheet* single punch capacity makes your binding job quick and easy. Vertical punching offers easy alignment of sheets for reduced punching errors while the anti-dust cover keeps the interior of the iWire clean and dust-free when not in use.
Built-in wire diameter and wire size guides help determine the correct wire size to be used for any given book thickness. Simply place your book into the clip on the front of the machine (photo below) to see what wire diameter is needed for your book. You can also double check the size of wire that you have by simple placing it on the wire size guide on the right of the machine; the image that your wire lines up with will tell you the diameter you are holding. The wire closer selector lets you adjust the wire closer to match your specific wire size, ensuring a perfect close every time, while the side margin control guarantees a well-centered punch.
The Akiles iWire Wire Binding Machine is available in two versions: iWire 31, which is a 3:1 pitch machine that has the capability to bind up to 9/16" Wire-O, and the iWire 21, which is a 2:1 pitch machine that has the capability to bind up to 1-1/4" Wire-O. Both models feature an ergonomic and comfortable handle for smooth and effortless punching and wire closing. A unique feature of the iWire is that they have a wire hanger/holder. This clip holds your wire in place so you can hang the paper on it as you punch. This feature makes inserting the wire very easy, even for large books.
