Excellent Choice Review by Marshall

Solid heavy duty machine. Love the inserter on the front and foot pedal control. Easy to use, gets the job done and I don't need to worry about it breaking down.

Welcome to MyBinding video. Let's have a look at the CoilMac EPI, a heavy duty electronic coil binding machine by Akiles. The EPI is top dog of the CoilMac line by Akiles. Here's a demonstration of how it works step-by-step.

It's wise to use scrap paper to set your side margin. Use the control knob to lock it down in place so all punches are consistent through your whole project. From the disengageable die pins, remove whatever pins you need so there are no half holes. Next, select your depth of margin. The larger, the stronger the bind. The smaller, the more papers in your project. When everything is all set right on your scrap paper, begin with your projects, first with the covers, punching through. And then punch through your entire project, up to 20 sheets of 20lb paper per punch. All through with that, it's time to assemble your project and bind it with a coil. All CoilMac machines come with a coil diameter selector. This is just a simple tool whereby you can judge the size of coil that you'll need for your project. One side you measure your project and get your reading. Set the other side and select your coil according to that size. Once you've selected your coil, begin to thread it on one end a few threads. Toggle the switch down to the inserter. Gently place the coil up to the wheel and let it spin right through. And that's all there is to it. Crimp both ends with crimping pliers and you're all done. Dispose of all the punched chips from the tray in the front. And there it is, a great-looking book bound by the EPI CoilMac by Akiles.

Welcome to MyBinding video. This video is made to help you understand the difference between the regular and the plus models of the CoilMac line. Akiles makes four CoilMac machines, the M, ER, ECI, and EPI, and their corresponding Plus versions. Side by side, each model looks to be very similar. They have the same features but have two major differences. The first, the shape of the punch. On the regular models, that is the M, ER, ECI, and EPI, the holes that are punched are round and they are 4mm in diameter, punching four holes for every one inch. On all four of the corresponding Plus models, the holes that are punched are oval-shaped, 4mm wide and 5mm tall, also with a 4:1 pitch. The oval holes are more popular because they tend to work better with thicker documents and lay out more naturally along an 11-inch length. Also with oval holes, the beginning threading that you must do by hand is much easier. The second major difference is the disengaging punch dies. All Plus models have fully disengageable punch pins. This allows for a clean punch with virtually any document length and without fear of half holes punched. While all of the regular models have only five disengageable pins, which allows you to work with the most standard sized of documents. Those are the two major differences. Now you're on your way to choosing the right machine. For more comparisons, demos, reviews, and how to's, check out MyBinding.com.

Welcome to MyBinding video. This video compares the CoilMac EPI and EPI Plus. At the very top of the CoilMac line is the EPI. Let's look at the differences. The first is the number of disengageable die pins. And the second is the type of hole punched. All of the punch pins on the EPI+ are fully disengageable, allowing you to use any size sheet of paper. The regular EPI model has only five disengageable pins to be used with the most common sizes of paper. The EPI cuts round holes that are 4mm wide. The Plus model punches oval holes. The difference is oval holes work better with larger or thicker documents. Also, oval holes are easier to begin the threading process of the coil onto the spine. Those are the differences. Now let's look at the similarities between the two models and why the EPI is the top of the line. Both machines punch at a 4:1 pitch and have a punching length of 13 inches. It is an open throat design, so with some creativity there's no limit on paper size. The motor on this electronic punch can handle up to 20 sheets of 20lb paper per lift. And the binding capacity with the electronic inserter is 7/8 inch. Punching remains consistent both with side margin and depth of margin control knobs. One pedal, to be operated by hand or foot, controls both punch as well as the inserter. And with the switch on the front of the machine, you toggle between the two. And this inserter roller certainly stands out as the best on the line. Both machines come with a handheld coil selecting tool as well as a free pair of coil crimping pliers. Now all you need to do is choose what's best for you. For more comparisons, demos, reviews, and how to's, check out MyBinding.com.

Akiles Coilmac EPI Binding Machine Review

A desktop unit that can still produce at high volume, the Akiles Coilmac EPI is an all-electric coil binding system designed for medium to large sized organizations that do a fair amount of binding. Here is a brief overview of this machine's strengths and weaknesses.

Strengths:

  1. The punching capacity of the Coilmac EPI is easily one of the largest that is available on the market. Officially stated at twenty five sheets of twenty pound paper, we found that it really worked best at around twenty two. Still, that's a lot of sheets, and it will get you quickly through even the largest projects. This machine can also punch two clear covers at one time.
  2. The foot pedal control of the Coilmac EPI is a great feature that makes it possible for you to hold onto your documents with both hands while you are doing your punching. We found that this was really handy for increasing the punch quality when working with sheet numbers at or near the top of the machine's capabilities. Plus you can operate the coil inserter using your foot pedal by simply flipping the switch located on the front of the machine.
  3. The Coilmac EPI features an open throat design which allows the user to punch documents that are longer than the number of pins available. The continuous punching guide enables you to align the stack, flip it over, and punch the rest of the holes. We found the whole thing to be a fairly easy process even though we didn't think we would have to do it very often. The standard 13 inch width of the machine should be more than adequate to get you through the vast majority of jobs.
  4. While it only represents about a thirty dollar value, and we are talking about a machine that costs a little bit of money, we did find it nice that the Coilmac EPI comes with a pair of high quality crimping pliers. This tool is so important to the process that we can't imagine anyone attempting spiral coil binding without them.
  5. Another couple features that we really appreciated about the Coilmac EPI were the depth of margin punch control which allows you to set the correct punch from the edge of the document (increasing the usability and durability of larger documents), and the open throat design that lets you bind letter, legal, as well as A4 and A5 sized sheets with ease.
  6. The Coilmac EPI appears to us to be extraordinarily well built, and we see no reason why it wouldn't last the user for a good many years of daily use.

Weaknesses:

  1. For all its benefits, the Coilmac EPI does not include fully disengageable dies. Although for the vast majority of jobs this won't matter in the least, it is a nice feature to have when you are going to be producing documents that are custom sized. For this feature you will need to step up to the CoilMac EPI+
  2. We would have liked to see this system come with separate foot pedals for inserting and punching. It is currently designed so that the user must flip a switch to toggle between functions. It can get a little tedious if you are punching and binding one document at a time. You would be better off doing all your punching first, then all your inserting.
  3. For larger volume projects, you may want to purchase a standalone inserter so that one person can work on punching while another works on inserting and crimping.
