April 22, 2019

If you love the look and functionality of spiral coil binding, and you're ready to start binding in your office (or ready to upgrade your machine), then take a look at these top 4 picks for the best spiral binding machines. Perfect for offices of several sizes/volumes, these machines are reliable, efficient, and a great bang-for-your-buck.

1. Akiles CoilMac EPI Plus Electric Punch & Electric Coil Inserter

Akiles CoilMac EPI Plus - Top Selling Electric Spiral Binding Machine

The CoilMac EPI is a best-seller, and reason why is pretty clear. Though on the upper end of the price for these 5 machines, it packs the most powerful punch, with the heaviest duty internal features that ensure it will last for years and year. This durable coil binding machine is not only strong enough to cleanly punch through 25 sheets of paper in one pass, but it also has a powerful electric roller inserting unit that drastically increases the coil binding speed over hand-rolling. Everything on this machine is electrically operated, which is a must-have function for any larger binding environment; it eliminates the hassle and strain associated with hand punching and hand inserting. The punching is activated with a foot pedal that leaves both of your hands free for handling your books. The roller inserting wheels are turned on with a switch.

2. Rhin-O-Tuff Coil Binding System 3000

Rhin-O-Tuff Syetem 3000 - A top electric spiral binding machine

My personal favorite coil binding machine, the System 3000 from Rhin-O-Tuff is the perfect machine for offices that need the functionality and convenience of an electric coil binder, but need something simple so that everyone in the office can use it without much overview at all. This all-in-one machine not only has an electric punch and electric rollers for inserting, but it also has an electric crimper, so you don't need those hard-to-crimp pliers to finish your bind. The vertical punch channel is great because it uses gravity to help ensure all your pages are square, and the inserting rollers are adjustable. This feature is great for anyone doing various coil sizes, as you can set them for the ideal spacing for your coil diameter. Made in the USA with top-quality parts by a world-renowned manufacturer, Rhin-O-Tuff/Performance Design LLC.

3. Rhin-O-Tuff 3250CL Pro Series Electric Spiral Binding Machine

3250CL - Top Electric Spiral Binding Machine

The 3250CL from Rhin-O-Tuff brings the convenience of an electric punch to an office that needs a simple unit so everyone can use it for basic punch-and-bind needs. It is easy, it looks great in any office, and it has all the basic features that most offices need. Vertical punching uses gravity to assist in squaring your stack for punching. There is a single-roller inserter that is also electric, which helps assist coil inserting. While a single roller is not ideal for large coils, it is still very helpful. The 3250CL is a unique machine for Rhin-O-Tuff, designed in the USA with the same quality parts, but built specifically for the professional office environment, rather then their typical heavy duty print environment. Designed with simplicity in mind, this office coil binding machine is activated with just a push of a button, and was built to create perfect letter sized 8 ½" x 11" books.

4. Akiles CoilMac ECI Plus Manual Punch & Electric Coil Inserter

Akiles CoilMac ECI Plus - Top Selling Electric Spiral Binding Machine

With a complete system of functions and a built-in electric coil inserting machine, the Akiles CoilMac-ECI Plus is a perfect electric:manual combination machine that adds convenience and efficiency to an affordable unit. The CoilMac ECI Plus features die disengagement pins that allow for a clean punch with multiple paper sizes. The punching margin control provides the correct punch-margin-depth for each spiral binding coil size while maximizing the document's tear resistance. The open punching throat and continuous punching guide allow for an easy alignment and punching of documents larger that 13". The electric spiral binding coil inserter is foot pedal operated, allowing the free use of both hands and granting the operator complete rotating control of the roller. The Coilmac ECI Plus punches oval holes in a true 4:1 pitch, making Spiral Binding much faster and much easier!
