Benefits of Wire Binding

Wire Binding is also known as Double Loop Wire binding, or Ring Wire binding, Twin Loop Wire binding is a relatively fast form of binding. Wire binding gives an aesthetically pleasing finish and a sense of quality to the bound pages. Bound documents open easily, lie flat, and fold 360° making them ideal for many applications such as financial reports, note books, proposals, cook books and training manuals.

Electric closers can also greatly enhance productivity such as the Renz ECL360

HOW IT WORKS: Wire is available in two patterns - 2 loops (2:1 pitch) per inch or 3 loops (3:1 pitch) per inch. The number of holes in the documents must match the wire pattern. The wire comes "open" so that the punched pages can be inserted into the loops. After all of the pages are in place the book is inserted into a closing machine where a closing bar either electronically or manually closes the wire to a predetermined diameter, making a round, sealed bind.


DOCUMENT THICKNESS: 1/4" to bind up to 35 sheets through 1½" to bind up to 320 sheets of 80gsm.

Solo Press opt for Renz Binding solution


Southend-on-Sea Printers Solo Press have opted for a new Renz Binding machine solution to upgrade there existing wire binding equipment. They opted for the ever popular Renz DTP-340A semi automatic punch. This model has the ability to punch up to 25,000 sheets of 80gsm per hour. The machine punch tools can be changed in under 1 minute and all common tools such as 2:1, 3:1, comb, spiral and even a 4/2 hole punch is available, making this a highly productive and versitile punching system.

The commercial and digital printers also opted for the Renz ECL360 electric wire closerhttp://www.bindingstore.co.uk/products/Renz-Wire-Binding-and-Closing-Machines/73. This is one of the only electric closers with the ability to close wires of both 2:1 and 3:1 pitch rite upto 38mm in diameter. (1 1/2")This was an important factor to Solo Press as many of there manuals produced are over 300 pages long.

WHISTLE WHILE YOU WIRE BIND















Grimsby trade finisher Khromatec and Birmingham
printer G10 have chosen different routes to increase their
wire binding capability.
G10 TAKES RENZ ROUTE
Birmingham litho and digital printer G10 Design & Print is eyeing increased opportunities in producing calendars for the restaurant market, after a decision to invest in a Renz semi-automatic Mobi 500 wire binder and P500 bench top punch.
G10 managing director Jorid Miah completed the deal at the IFS Print
Efficiently event in June, purchasing the equipment from dealer Binding
Store
. Both the Mobi 500 binding machine and Punch 500 E electricdesktop heavy duty punch work to a maximum working width of 500
mm, and therefore go ‘hand in hand’, according to Binding Store’s Russell Cunningham.
Previously, G10 had no wire binding in-house and was having to outsource this type of work to the trade, so the investment allows the company to retain control of jobs and to produce wire-bound calendars and books on demand when required. Mr Cunningham added: ‘Speed of make ready was
important to G10 and the Renz machines are very easy to set up. Keeping the calendar work in-house is the main thing, and it gives G10 the flexibility to do short and long runs at the drop of a hat.’
G10 Jorid Miah (right) concludes a deal for the Renz kit at Print Efficiently, with Binding Store’s Russell Cunningham (left).

Ideal Print finishing article in Print Week


Ideal ramps up capacity with 'million-sheet-a-day' wire binding auto punchBy Jerome Butcher Thursday, 24 February 2011

Ideal Finishing has invested in its first automatic punch in a bid to increase capacity.

The company, which started in January last year, installed a refurbished James Burn Lhermite auto punch, and a RileCart TP480 binding machine supplied by Binding Store earlier this month.


Ideal Finishing managing director Paul Forrester said: "We made these investments to increase capacity and to produce more on a daily basis. At full speed, it can punch a million sheets a day."


The finishing house has expanded over the past 13 months and currently turns over £500,000 a year, according to Forrester.

Ideal Finishing has moved from a 139sqm facility where it employed three staff to operating a 465sqm site. It now employs 11 production staff.

Forrester said the company would be making future investments and was looking to buy at least one other auto punch, similar to the James Burn Lhermite, and another Moby 500 binder.

"The new ones do look interesting but the older ones are more robust. We’re looking down the second-hand route rather than new." he added.

Ideal Finishing, which was started by Forrester and fellow director Chris Carden, installed a 10/20 station Duplex A3/A4 collator from collating machine supplier Col-Tec Solutions

‘TIS THE SEASON TO BE WIRE BINDING


A great article on Ideal Print Finishing. Binding Store have worked closley with Paul and the team from day 1.

It’s calendar season: that time of year when wire binding comes into its own;and for Ideal Finishing, a trade finisher in Croydon, that could make a very successful first year of trading even better. The firm started in January 2010 with two staff, and nine months later has eleven employees, and turnover approaching a quarter of a
million pounds.
Director Paul Forrester says that wire
binding
is 85% of the company’s work,and with spiral binding added, the proportion goes higher still. While a flood of calendar binding work can be expected,
Ideal has just won another wire binding
contract
of around £60,000 from direct mail, print and promotional items company Impakt MMD Group, for jobs such as branded notepads. It means that Ideal Finishing is going to need to invest in more equipment, said Mr Forrester: ‘I’ve got the kit I need – I just need more of them. I need another Renz Mobi
500
, a fully automatic auto-punch, and a much larger guillotine. We’ll be looking at a Polar 115 guillotine.’
The Mobi 500 is a semi-automatic wire binding system from Renz which uses reels
of wire rather than cut wire. Paired with the Renz AP360 puncher, it’s capable of a three
minute makeready and can produce 600 books per hour. When bought new, it’s a
£20,000 machine (£55,000 with the
puncher). Renz says it has been selling the systems at a rate of one a week since Ipex.
Mr Forrester has a high regard for Renz and its equipment (he already has one
Mobi 500), but he also has a good relationship with equipment dealer
Binding Store, where good deals can be picked up on used machinery. The
company often has a good range of Renz and Joto equipment, said Mr Forrester, as
well as being strong on parts and service.
‘The Renz Mobi is probably more futuristic than any wire binder I’ve seen for years,’ he continued. ‘It handles size changes automatically, and that’s quite amazing.’
He added that Ideal was suited to medium sized jobs from its print customers, and offered a cheaper service than most in what is a niche market. ‘We wouldn’t take anything over about 50,000 copies and 50 pages. Fifty
thousand copies at 14 pages would be lovely though. We are middle of the road
and we take on a lot of work from colleges. We’ve had people ringing to ask
if we could bind their thesis. And we will - no matter how small, we will do it,’ said Mr Forrester.
Renz isn’t the only supplier to the wire binding market: there is Joto (or Rilecart)
from Italy as mentioned, There is a wealth of machines, from entry level benchtop models that small offices might use, through the professional benchtop ranges and the floor standing semi-automatics such as the Mobi and the JBI BB50/H Wire-O binder, up to inline systems that might punch and bind 1500 books per hour.
The recession has seen increasing numbers of printers opt to take wire binding inhouse, according to Daniel Pooley of Renz, which has been good news for equipment
manufacturers in one regard, but not so good for their trade finisher customers. If that is the case, Ideal Finishing appears to buck the trend.
Wire binding

PRINT & PAPER MONTHLY • OCTOBER 2010 • WWW.PAPERANDPRINT.COM Wire binding is a niche market that comes to life around this time of year, as calendars for the new year are
produced – which will be a boon for one trade finisher in particular.
Renz’s Mobi 500 and AP360 puncher is proving to be a popular combination.
‘The market has been pretty fluid,’ said Mr Pooley. ‘The Mobi was launched at
Northprint last year. It allows you to do more jobs with quicker turnaround. You
can bind on demand because makeready is so fast. It’s a workhorse really – some
people throw everything at it. But once you know a trade finisher is happy with it,
you know it can go anywhere.’
Operating the system is comparatively simple too, and Renz says that a day’s
training is sufficient. Next to come from the German manufacturer is a benchtop puncher (the DSP360, a beta of which was shown at Ipex) that will process 40,000 sheets per hour, and a ‘mini Mobi’ that will be well suited to unskilled operators in
digital print houses.
While there’s no release date for the mini Mobi, the DSP360 is due to be available around January/February
2011. Could be worth marking that in your calendar now.
WWW.PAPERANDPRINT.COM • OCTOBER 2010 • PRINT & PAPER MONTHLY

Binding Store to distribute for Col-Tec


Finishing equipment distributor Binding Store has been appointed to sell collating equipment for Col-Tec.

The two companies confirmed the agreement at a Heidelberg finishing open house in Tamworth earlier this month, where Col-Tec was exhibiting a deep-pile collator.
Russell Cunningham, Binding Store managing director, said he was attracted to the machines because of their versatility. According to Cunningham, the Col-Tec gatherer can be integrated into many standalone binders to offer in-line perfect binding.
"The range fits in very well with our existing portfolio of binding machinery that we supply to trade printers and print finishers. They have the capability of feeding from the thinnest stock right up to finished perfect-bound book blocks," he added.
Binding Store is able to offer the full range on both new and refurbished collators.

Huge increase in capacity at Abbey Bookbinding following Renz investment
Adam Hooker, printweek.com, 07 August 2009

Bookbinders Abbey Bookbinding & Print has received a massive increase in its spiral binding capacity after an investment from finishing equipment supplier Binding Store.


The Cardiff-based company previously wire bound by hand and managing director Roger Cottrell said that runs of over 250 were not economically viable.

However, the company installed a Renz AP360 six months ago and a Renz Mobi 500 in July after customers repeatedly enquired about longer runs.

He said: "With the Renz binding machines we can now handle runs of up to 40,000 books, it has been paying itself off already. Over the next 12 months we will look to increase our workflow and will be advertising our service further afield than South Wales."

Cottrell added that an eighth member of staff had joined the £500,000 turnover company. Two more members of staff are expected to join in the next 12 months

Darryl Danielli, printweek.com, 22 May 2009

Online finishing kit reseller Binding Store has moved to a new 100m2 premises and showroom, following an upturn in business.

The St Albans-based firm's range includes binding, shredding, folding/creasing, laminating, shrinkwrapping and cutting kit from companies such as Busch, D&K, Horizon, HSM, RotaTrim and Vivid. It was also recently appointed as an official distributor of Renz punching and binding equipment.
