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.
