Akiles Roll-@-Coil Plastic Spiral Binding Coil Inserter
The Roll-@-Coil, pronounced Roll-A-Coil, is a fast and efficient electric coil inserting machine that will speed up the process of binding, as compared with manually rolling the coils in. One stationary silicone roller and one stationary plastic roller work together to grip the spiral binding spine and roll it through your punched holes. A great addition to offices with a manual punching machine that are looking to speed up the binding process witrhout investing in a whole new punch and bind machine, or for those who want an assembly-style production line where one person is punching and one person is binding, buy the Akiles Roll-@-Coil plastic spiral binding coil inserter online and use it with spiral coils from 6mm to 30mm. This inserting machine rolls the coils through your pages, and you will also need a cutting/crimping tool to finish the coils, such as the cutter crimper pliers (not included).

I RECOMMEND THIS FOR:
The Roll-@-Coil (Roll-A-Coil) is a good add-on option for users who already have a manual coil punch machine, but have since grown their business to a level that would benefit from making the binding process electric. It is a cost-friendly option for people who do thinner books with smaller coils. If you work with thicker books or larger coils, then consider the Finish-@-Coil E1.
WHAT I LIKE:
Just because the Roll-A-Coil is at the lower end of the coil inserter price bracket, doesn’t mean it lacks in quality (this is an Akiles machine, after all). It is a good-quality machine at a very fair price point that will speed up the coil inserting process of rolling it in hole-by-hole with your hands a ton. It has an integrated spine former on the front of the machine (which is a “u” shaped channel) that lets you form your book spine to the ideal convex curve for coil inserting, making the inserting even smoother to prevent “catches,” for a faster finish.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
One thing that I don’t so much like about this machine is that both of the rollers are fixed into a set position, so they cannot be adjusted for different coil sizes. They are set to the ideal spacing for the most common coil sizes, however, without the ability to move one of the rollers away from the other, working with real large coils has proven to be a little less smooth. The rollers are also a little bit on the smaller side, when compared to a lot of other inserters out there; this is a good thing because it makes the machine smaller overall for people with limited work space, but it also affects the effectiveness of the rollers, especially for larger and longer coils.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
If you’ve been doing your research, I am sure you have seen quite a variety of electric inserting machines in a wide variety of price ranges. Because the Roll-@-Coil is on the less expensive side of the range, it fits well into even tight budgets, but still has the most important features for basic coil inserting. If you’re doing a lot of larger coils, then you may want to consider upgrading to a slightly larger machine that has a movable roller, like the Finish-A-Coil mentioned in my recommendations above.
