WIRE-O BINDING

Lays Flat. Opens 360°. Economical.

Wire-O Binding is a great solution for products that need to lie flat. Double loop wire binding, commonly referred to as Wire-O®, is a durable binding method that lies flat, and opens 360°. It's perfect for manuals, cookbooks, calendars and more.

Many people think of Wire-O® as the Cadillac of mechanical binding. It is an elegant, durable and versatile binding style that's been around for decades, yet never looks dated. Wire-O®'s pages open without a "step-up", making it an appropriate choice for books with crossover images. Wire-O® elements are available in a wide variety of standard colors; if necessary, we can even specially order wire to match any PMS color, as long as minimum quantities are satisfied. Because Wire-O® can be highly automated, it is an economical choice for long runs.

SPIRAL LOCK & SPIRAL WIRE BINDING

Spiral LOCK wire binding is created from a continuous strand of coated metal wire formed into a spiral shape, then with specialized tooling loop locks the spiral coil. Like its cousin Wire-O®, spiral wire binding lies flat and opens 360°. Unlike Wire-O®, however, it’s ends are loop locked preventing pulling."

  • Two Spiral Forming machines with Coil Lock.
  • Thin 1/16”, to thick 2”, under or oversized books
  • Semi-concealed binding
  • Fully-concealed binding
  • Many wire colors available

PLASTIC SPIRAL BINDING

Durable. Layflat Binding

Plastic spiral is a popular solution for children's books, calendars, computer manuals and many other products. Like Wire-O®, plastic coil elements are available in a wide variety of colors and sizes, but, unlike Wire-O®, they will spring back to their original shape even if stepped on.

THE E & M PLASTIC SPIRAL BINDING ADVANTAGE:

  • Four high-speed machines

PLASTIC COMB

Imprint-ready Spine. Design flexibility

Plastic comb binding doesn't open 360° like other mechanical binding styles, but it holds two distinct advantages over its relatives: first, its spine can be imprinted by either foil stamping or screen printing. Second, pages can be added or removed as desired, making plastic comb binding suitable for extended-use applications. If either of these features are important to you, choose plastic comb binding. 7 Machines.
