With our line of manual spiral binding machines, you can quickly and efficiently bind your own coil books without the need for electricity. They are one of the most popular solutions on the market, punching closely spaced holes to work with plastic spiral coil spines. These coil binding systems are ideally suited for lower volume users that bind less than 100 books or so per month, such as smaller schools or individual classrooms, offices with only occasional binding needs, or anyone else who needs a professional way to bind pages without outsourcing. Our manual binder systems will help low volume users achieve professional results without breaking the bank.
Browse our collection below. You will see that various machines may have a combination of both manual and electric features; we have categorized them as manual because the punching operation itself is manually controlled with a handle for all of these machines. If you think your volume warrants something more powerful, check out our electric coil binding machines instead. Otherwise, you are assured to find a perfect coil binder for your individual requirements from our selection.
Starting at only about $160, these small coil binding units punch in the most common 4:1 pitch hole spacing, or in some rare cases, the more unique 5:1 pitch. The holes that they punch may be either round or oval. The benefit of an oval hole punch is that it makes it much easier to roll in the coils, especially if you are making thicker books often. Most of these manually controlled machines will require you to roll the coils in by hand, and then use a pair of coil crimpers to finish each end of the spiral. Some of them, however, may have an integrated coil inserter that works with a foot pedal to roll them in quicker. You may also even find some duo machines that can handle coils plus either wire of comb. These innovative machines are called combination machines, and expand your capabilities quite a bit.
