Binding Machines and Consumables

We carry a huge range of Binding Machines and Consumables - for all light and heavy duty jobs. There are quite a few different methods of binding, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.

Comb binding is the least expensive way to bind pages together into a book. This method uses plastic combs with 21 or 20 rings (for A4 size). Binding with plastic combs is the cheapest method of binding, as combs are the most inexpensive binding consumable, and the combs can be used again and again. The bound document can also be edited as frequently as you need.

Wire binding is another binding method of binding. Wires are used to create a more secure booklet as the wire, once closed, cannot be opened to add or delete pages. Wire binding gives a more durable, professional looking product.

Spiral coil binding is also a popular method of binding. Once inserted, the coil cannot be opened to edit a book. The coil must be removed and the book edited, then a new coil can be inserted. Coils need to be crimped at the end so that the coil stays in place. Coils may be re-used, however this can be difficult after a coil has been crimped. This method is best when books need to be folded back on themselves.

Thermal Binding can reduce the time spent binding, as pages don't need to be punched. They can be inserted straight into the machine, with the relevant heat binding consumable - for example, thermal covers or strips. The strip or cover contains a heat activated glue that holds the pages together. This method looks very professional and is a durable method of binding.

Standard sizes are 6mm (for 15 sheets of 80gsm paper) up to 50mm (for 500 sheets) for combs and 6mm to 32mm for wires. Spine lengths are generally 300mm to match the length of A4 paper. AOM supply all binding machines and consumables and we can service or repair existing machines.
