  1. WireMac-M (3:1 Pitch) - The Akiles WireMac-M 3:1 pitch handles smaller diameter Wire-O sizes from 1/4" through 6/16". It punches two hole per inch, and has many features to make punching and binding wire spines simple, fast and effective with a professional finish. Built specifically for low to medium volume users, Akiles manufactured this machine with one main goal in mind: to meet the demands of medium sized offices with daily to weekly book binding needs.
  2. TC-20 Thumbcut Punch - Though not officially a wire binding machine, this small hand punch creates the half-hole necessary for calendar making with wire-o and wire hangers. Whether you are making calendars for hanging on the wall, an easel style flip-calendar, making key card holders or gift card holders, or creating crafts of many kinds, the TC-20 thumb cut punch is a fast and easy way to do it. This specialty paper punch creates a half-moon punch that measures 13/16" wide and 7/16" long, which is a half-circle shape that allows the pages to flip around a calendar hook, for a full 360° turn.
  3. WireMac-M (2:1 Pitch) - The Akiles WireMac-M 2:1 pitch handles the full range of Wire-O sizes from 1/4" through 1.25". It punches two hole per inch, and has many features to make punching and binding wire spines simple, fast and effective with a professional finish. Built specifically for low to medium volume users, Akiles manufactured this machine with one main goal in mind: to meet the demands of medium sized offices with daily to weekly book binding needs.
  4. WireMac-Duo (3:1 and 2:1 Combo) - A one-of-a-kind solution, the Akiles WireMac-Duo is a fully-featured Wire-O® machine that allows for the punching and binding of both 3:1 and 2:1 pitch wires in a single unit, making it extremely versatile. Manufactured for durability, this all-metal binding machine remains compact, while featuring two punching openings (one for each pitch) to eliminate the hassle of die change, and a single closer opening that handles all size wire spines. Fully disengageable punch pins allows for more versatility in sheet size and punching pattern, while a variety of adjustment knobs and settings help you achieve a look that is aligned and finished to perfection. This machine has everything you need to punch and bind with Wire-O® twin-loop binding supplies.
  5. WBM-532 Closer - The WBM-532 wire closer can be paired with any Wire-O® binding punch to create a full binding system. It has the capability to cleanly close wire spines from 1/4" through 1 ¼" in both 3:1 and 2:1 pitch. It features a 14" closing mechanism with open ends, so you have the capability to close legal size wires with one pass, but have no limitations on wider sheets by just closing multiple times per book. Gradual adjustments let you set the closer depth precisely for a perfectly circular wire close. A wire hanger on the front of the machine holds the wire spine in place and at the ideal angle so you can easily place your punched sheets onto the wire prior to closing. On the front of this modular wire closer is also a diameter guide - simply place your book pages into the slots to determine the best wire size for your book thickness.
