The popular Akiles MegaBind-1E Electric Plastic Comb Binding Machine is foot pedal operated for the punching and manually operated for the binding steps. This model punches through a capcity of 20 sheets of 20lb. paper. It will punch documents up to 14" long, and will bind all sizes of plastic combs from 3/16" to 2". Fully disengageable pins allow punching of both standard and unusual sheet sizes eliminating any partial holes punched on the top or bottom. The MegaBind 1E is a rugged machine, constructed of all metal. Akiles has made it simple to produce a professionally bound book in-house. Several features ensure the perfect outcome each time. A Side Margin Control provides an evenly centered bind. A Punching Margin Control allows the operator to select the optimal margin depth for every specific book size. A Binding Guide is built in to assist the operator in selecting the correct comb size for each different book. Finally, the Continuous Binding Control knob sets how far the comb opener will spread. This is especially useful if binding the same size documents so you do not have to adjust each bind.
A manual version of this machine, the Akiles MegaBind 1 is available to purchase for lower volume needs.
