Manual Wire Binding Machines

With our collection of manual wire binding machines, you can quickly and efficiently bind your own wire documents without needing electricity. These systems are ideally suited for lower volume users, such as those that will bind less than about 100 documents per month. This may include some schools or individual classrooms, smaller offices, and home businesses. They are operated with a handle to punch the pages, and start at only about $240. Most machines will also include an integrated manual wire closer to finish the books.

Our manual wire binders are available in 3:1 pitch or 2:1 pitch models, as well as some duo options that punch both. The pitch refers to the hole pattern, and indicates how many holes there are per inch. 3:1 pitch machines punch three holes per inch, and 2:1 units punch two holes per inch. The punch pattern you need will depend on the size of binding wires you plan to use. 3:1 machines work with only 3:1 wires, which come in sizes from 1/4 inch to 9/16 inch, which will bind up to about a 120 sheet (7/16 inch) thick book. 2:1 wire binding machines work with only 2:1 pitch wires, which traditionally come in sizes from 5/8 inch to 1-1/4 inch to bind between 120 and 260 sheet (1-1/8 inch) thick books. We also offer some select colors in special, smaller 2:1 wires, so you can often achieve the full range of sizes with a 2:1 punch. The duo machines will have two punching throats that punch both patterns, so you can easily handle the full range of wire spines without issue. The choice on the best wire pitch for you will depend almost entirely on two things: the smallest and largest book size you will need to bind and your aesthetic preference.
