The James Burn Wire-O® Bind 3500, also referred to as the WOB 3500, offers semi-automatic and high-speed Wire-O® finishing on-demand in conjunction with cost efficient and high quality James Burn Wire-O® binding spools. This high-speed wire binding machine offers outstanding productivity with a production speed between 500 and 1,000 books per hour*, all while being simple to operate with a user-friendly touch screen that features quick setups for all sizes and formats. The automatic functions will cut, feed and position the wire for inserting by the operator, and then will transport the document to a patented wire closing unit. The WOB 3500 is capable of handling all 3:1 and 2:1 pitch wire sizes from 1/4" up to 1-1/4". You can also add an optional hanger feeder (not included) and utilize the "skip binding" setting that allows for the addition of either spooled or individual calendar hangers. This hanger feeder is a simple "plug and play" unit that makes calendar creation easy and efficient when added to the WOB.
Spool loading for this machine is at floor level, making spool changing easy and wire size and color changeovers fast. The spool is power-lifted into place. The finishing cycle is activated with either a push-button or a foot pedal, allowing for user preference. The foot pedal option frees up both of the operator's hands to handle the documents, and is preferred by most users. The large workstation table gives you plenty of space to work with documents, and the smooth rolling castors make this machine easily mobile.
The versatile Wire-O® Bind 3500 is designed to work alongside the highly successful Alpha-Doc® MK4 and DocuPunch® MK2 automatic punching machines. It will accurately finish a wide variety of documents, including flush and over-sized covers, as well as index tabbed sheets. This is the perfect high-speed Wire-O® finishing solution for modern, in-plant, digital and on-demand printing environments, where ease-of-use, versatility and productivity are important.
