Coil Crimpers

Coil crimpers achieve the final step of spiral binding, cutting and crimping-in the ends of the coil spines so they don't roll out of the book. There are manual crimping pliers, which are the most popular choice, as well as electric machines for higher volume users, and even industrial systems that make the process faster and more efficient for production-level users.

Crimping is an essential step in the spiral binding process; it is the finishing move that makes the document function. Because a spiral coil is shaped like a spring and rolled through punched holes, the coil can roll out of those holes just as easily as it is rolled in. When you use a crimper to finish both ends, however, you prevent that from happening.

Crimper pliers are very affordable and simple to use. They have a little red dot on one side that indicates how to face them (the red dot should be up at all times), and you just squeeze them to both cut and crimp the ends. This process is easy, but it can be a strain on the user’s hand and wrist when you have to do a lot of books at a time. If you work with larger volumes, then we recommend an electric crimper instead which takes the hassle and strain completely out of the picture; just hold your book up to the crimper and press the foot pedal. Both hands are left free to handle the document, which also lends to faster production. In the collection below you may also see some combination machines that offer both electric inserting and electric crimping. Your choice will just depend on your volume and the kind of functionality your operation requires.
