Reviewing the new FlexiPunch-E Electric Interchangeable Binding Machine

Mid volume punch of multiple binding methods was impossible before the Akiles FlexiPunch Interchangeable Binding Machine. The only machine of its class, the FlexiPunch-E gives you the option to punch Wire-O, Spiral Binding Plastic Coil and Plastic Comb with the simple switch of a punching die; previously this feature was only available on high volume bindery equipment for heavy output. Now, with the FlexiPunch-E, you can punch your mid-volume binding jobs without breaking the bank on a machine meant for heavy duty, high volume punching. In this review, we will discuss the outcome of our in-depth product assessment, detailing the positives and negative associated with the FlexiPunch-E Electric Interchangeable Die Punching Machine.

The FlexiPunch-E is an innovative modular punching machine with electric operation at an affordable price that gives you the versatility of different binding options. The high-quality precision punching die sets were built to last for years of production. The FlexiPunch-E has a recommended punching capacity of 15 sheets (20#) at a time for all punching dies. Foot pedal punching operation leaves both hands free to prepare the next book. The interchangeable die sets were created with a quick die change design that allows you to easily change from one punch pattern to another within seconds- no tools needed! Fully disengageable pins on all punching dies allows for punching of all paper sizes without partially punched holes at either end. The open ended punching throat also allows for sheet sizes larger than the specified 12″ length by simply punching your sheets twice. The FlexiPunch was build to last with a rugged design including all metal parts, heavy cast side plates, and non-skid feet.

The Akiles FlexiPunch-E has 4 different punch dies to choose from, including plastic comb, 2:1 Wire-O, 3:1 Wire-O, and 4:1 Spiral Binding Plastic Coil. The adjustable depth margin is available for all punch dies and provides the correct punch margin depth for each element or book size. One free die is included with the purchase. Additional dies can be purchased separately.

The FlexiPunch-E is an electric punching machine only, and does not including the binding portion. If binding with Wire-O or Plastic Comb, a separate wire closer and plastic comb spreader will be required to complete the bind. For Spiral Binding you can insert it by hand, or electrically insert the coils by purchasing a separate electric plastic coil inserting machine; you will also need a the cutter/crimper pliers. The FlexiPunch weighs about 55 lbs, so transportation might be difficult if not stationed on a rolling workstation (also available). It measures about 17.25″ L x 16″ W x 9.25″ H, making it small enough to fit on most any desk or table.

The Akiles FlexiPunch is a durable machine that is perfect for small to mid-sized offices with mid-volume punching needs that do not justify the higher cost automated or heavy duty equipment. It gives users the option to bind the three most popular methods, (Wire-O, spiral binding and plastic comb) with one compact unit.
