    Product Overview:

    Some purchasers have a difficult time deciding on whether to buy a comb binding machine or to buy a wire binding machine. Comb binding and wire binding both have their benefits and their limitations. Plus, binding machines can be pricey so purchasing two machines can be a financial impracticality. The ideal choice would be to purchase a binding machine that that can do both types of book binding, like the Akiles DuoMac C31 / C21.

    The Akiles DuoMac C31 / C21 are high-performance machines built specifically for companies that do a lot of book binding that requires different binding formats, such as comb or twin wire loop binding. For example, twin-loop binding is a common choice for binding fixed paged projects, like notebooks, journals, ledgers, reports and business proposals. Whereas comb binding is usually used for binding projects where pages will be added or removed after the initial binding is complete. This usually happens with cook books, employee manuals, guides and book manuscripts. It is this multi-format versatility that makes the Akiles DuoMac a popular choice among schools, colleges, print shops, corporate marketing departments, churches, and business development departments.

    The Akiles DuoMac C31 / C21 is also a good choice if you have employees with little experience using binding machines because the operation features tend to simplify and streamline the binding process. The depth margin and side margin controls on the Akiles DuoMac ensure that the all punches are well-centered and are placed at the correct spot along the margin. By keeping the margin punch depths at the optimal spot for binding the machine also reduces the chance of the document tearing through the comb or wire.

    The Akiles DuoMac C31 / C21 have a hole punching capacity of 20 sheets per punch. The punching slot has 14 inch punching capacity with disengageable punching dies so that it can be customized for each job size, and reduces partial perforations along the document edges.

    After the holes have been punched at the appropriate 3:1 or 2:1 pitch, the operator will use the master selector on the Akiles DuoMac C31 / C21 to determine the correct wire or comb diameter, the closing position. The DuoMac also has a feature that will hold the twin wire loop or comb in place as it is being inserted. With all these operator guides and options the DuoMac Binding Machines reduce user error and are practically fool-proof. These binding machines are able to bind documents that are 9/16 of an inch in thickness to 1 1/4 inch in thickness.

    The DuoMac C31 / C21 is made by Akiles Products, Inc. Akilies has been in business since 1993. Located in California, Akiles produces some of the best-selling binding machines, laminating equipment and other office equipment North America and Latin America.
