Overview

The Akiles FlexiCloser closing machine will automatically detect your wire size and adjust the closing pressure accordingly, so there are no confusing or time-consuming dials to manually adjust. This feature is called Smart-Detect, and it is unique to the FlexiCloser. To use this electric wire closer, simply place your wire on the hanger to insert your book pages. Then place your wire, with the pages included and the "C" opening facing back, against the backing of the machine. The backing has a strong magnet and rough texture to firmly hold your wire in place before and during closing, so you don't have to hassle with slipping wire or re-adjustments. Then use the LCD controls to activate the closer; it will automatically detect your wire size and will apply the proper amount of pressure to close the wire into a perfect circle around your pages. A safety sensor helps keep your operators protected. Also available is an optional mounting kit that allows the FlexiCloser to be mounted onto the FlexiPunch-E machine. Eliminate all of the hassle normally associated with wire closing when you buy the Akiles FlexiCloser automatic wire closer online.

The Akiles FlexiCloser electric wire closer is an innovative tabletop machine with smart-detect wire sensing that will automatically close all sizes of wire-o with just the press of a button. The smart-detect sensor built into the machine automatically senses the wire diameter, and when you press start, will lower the closing bar to create a perfectly round finished wire.

The FlexiCloser will work with the full range of wire-o sizes, from 3/16” to 1 ½” in both 3:1 and 2:1 pitch configurations.

Simple to use, just set the pitch of either 3:1 or 2:1 and set the closing bar into either the low or high position. The closing bar position allows the user to speed up the production by reducing the travel time of the bar when working with smaller wires. The low setting is referred to as “high efficiency mode”. With high efficiency mode, you can bind 30% faster than with normal mode.

A built-in wire hanger on the front of the unit lets you conveniently place pages onto your wire, to prepare it for binding. Once hung, just place the wire between the closing bars. A magnetic backing will hold the wire in place, so there is no hassling with the wires falling out of the book. A safety sensor on the closing bar will stop the bar if anything larger than the book block is placed into the field.

Micro-adjustments on the control panel allow you to fine-tune the close to your specific needs. These adjustments can be memorized for each wire size, which means the machine improves itself to your specific needs as you work with it.

For an easy-to-use automated tabletop wire binding solution, the Akiles FlexiCloser is a great choice for perfect wire closing, quickly and with no hassle, every time. For more information or to buy the Flexicloser, visit Binding101.com or call the number on your screen.

The unique Smart-Detect feature automatically detects the size of the wire and closes it with just a push of a button.
The Flex-Closer is designed to close all types of wires, from 3/16" to 1-1/2" and either 3 to 1 or 2 to 1 pitch.

The magnetic back stop in the closing area aligns and holds the wire securely in place during the closing process.
Set up is simple with the easy to read LCD Display and touch sensitive buttons.
Simply turn the power switch on at the back of the machine.
The Flexi closer can now be set for 3 to 1 or 2 to 1 wire.
Additionally the closing bar can be set to low or high. This is helpful when closing smaller diameter wire to reduce the travel height of closing bar to speed up the operation.
To bind simply load your document onto the wire, drop it into the closing bar and push the start button. That’s it; the machine automatically senses the size of the wire and adjusts the close to the wire size.
You can check your wire close, if it’s too much or not enough, the Micro-Adjust control panel allows you to fine tune the close for any size wire.
To provide the most professional looking documents, you can hide the junction where the wire loops come together between the last page and the back cover. Simply turn your back cover over onto the front cover with the inside of the back cover facing out. Then after you close the wire simply flip the back cover over and the wire junction is hidden giving you a perfect document every time.
The Flexi-closer has a safety sensor on the closing bar. This stops the closing bar if something larger than the book block is present.

And that’s the Akiles Flexi-Closer; a versatile electric wire closer, built for offices or production centers with larger runs of Wire-O binding.

Akiles FlexiCloser 5-Star Expert Review

 

I RECOMMEND THIS FOR:
The FlexiCloser from Akiles is the perfect machine to increase speed of production and eliminate the common frustrations wire binders often experience. It makes finishing your wire bound books simple, and creates a consistent and professional circular bind, without having to manually adjust settings and placements. If you rarely close wire, then it may make sense to stick with a manual machine. But in all honesty, if you can justify the investment, the FlexiCloser is definitely worth the price.
 

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT:
This machine is completely hassle-free. You just place your wire onto the hanger on the front and hang your punched pages. Then place your wire inside the closing field. The magnetic backing holds onto your wire, so there is no slipping. The machine automatically knows what diameter of wire you are using, and will close into a perfect circle around your book. No fiddling with settings or closing little by little until it’s right. This makes changing from various sizes seamless, and ensures a consistently clean look across the entire spine.
 

THINGS TO CONSIDER:
The only consideration here is the price point. For many low and mid-volume wire users, spending this much on the finisher alone is not realistic. But for those who bind many books daily or weekly, it can be a huge time saver. So if you can afford it, you are going to love it .
 

THE BOTTOM LINE:
With the Flexicloser, there is no more hassling with manual closing systems that mis-close your wire. As someone who has worked with many throughout the years, this is the only wire closer that I have ever used that I actually liked. With the Flexicloser, there is no more guesswork, no more over-closed, unprofessional wires, and no more operator fatigue.
