One of the features of the CC2700 Coil Binding System is the adjustable rollers. You're allowed to adjust the rollers to 3 different positions, depending on the thickness of the book you're binding. You may need to have the rollers in the tightest position, which will accommodate 6 to 8 millimetre, possibly 10 millimetre coils and as you get to larger coils, you need to open the rollers up.
There's a little pouch on the side of the binding system where the crimpers are stored and one of the problems with crimpers being a small tool is that they get misplaced and when you're binding the last thing you want to do is look around for the crimpers and have to delay the job.
Space is always an issue in a binding environment, having a modular system like the CC2700 is a great advantage. If one person is binding, they can stack the units. If two people are working side by side, it's very easy to lift the machine up, position it, and allow yourself plenty of working space for two people.
Every print job we do in the print department is needed on a timely basis. We can't afford to have any equipment break down on us. When it needs service, we need the service people to show up immediately. We need reliable equipment and we need the most efficient equipment that's out on the market.

GBC CC2700 Modular Spiral Coil Inserter Review
The GBC CC2700 Modular Spiral Coil Inserter is designed to quickly assist in spinning color coil onto your documents. Part of the GBC line of modular equipment, the GBC CC2700 is designed to stack on top of the MP2500ix, MP2000C4 or the Magnapunch. In addition, the CC2700 can be used as a stand-alone inserter. This usage will definitely help increase productivity by creating a classic, assembly line process. This equipment is perfect for getting a large job done fast, which is what many businesses are looking for and what the CC2700 delivers effectively and efficiently.
The GBC CC2700 Includes a set of coil crimping pliers and a convenient holder to hold the pliers as part of your standard order. This feature will help prevents you from losing the pliers when you don't need to use them and making sure they are always nearby when you so need to finish your project. The crimping pliers really are the perfect compliment to this helpful equipment.
In addition, the top of the inserter also Includes a spine former for forming documents up to 35mm thick. But that's not the only advantage, the equipment also features an adjustable bottom roller to accommodate larger diameters of coil. This is much more effective with large diameter coil than an inserter with a fixed roller. This is definitely a feature to keep in mind when evaluating your needs.
With the CC2700, both rollers move. This helps to give your coil better traction, which helps to reduce insertion problems. This is a feature that many lower-end inserters don't offer, but one that can really save time and money in the production process.
Finally, the machine also has a large diameter top roller to help provide better friction for coil insertion and uses a convenient foot pedal. The foot pedal allows you to hold the coil and the book or document without having to turn the machine on or off. This also is a huge time-savings and prevents any inconvenience in the insertion process.
The CC2700 is a more effective machine for large sized coils than most inserters but limited when it comes to coils larger than 30mm. For coils of this size, you should consider a spine former such as the HD-4101. You may also get better results with large coil if you are using an oversize oval hole pattern or 3:1 pitch or 2.5:1 pitch coils.
This machine comes with the GBC premium brand name and is a great addition to an existing GBC binding system. However, for budget conscious shoppers there are machines available with similar features that are more cost-effective. The question you must ask yourself is if the highly-reliable GBC product line is the equipment that you want for all of your binding processes.
The CC2700 has a heavy duty metal construction. This makes the machine well- built, and allows it to hold up in high production environments like binderies, printers and in-house shops, all with a great deal of success. The durability and service offered by GBC makes a big difference to larger operations, that use their equipment every day on many documents.
The machine, however, is not completely without any technical issues. For example, the clear drive belts that run the rollers sometimes need to be replaced. The good news, however, is that the belts and rollers are readily available and can be replaced quite easily and inexpensively. This is just something to keep in mind when making your ultimate decision on inserter equipment.
The GBC CC2700 is one of the highest quality spiral coil inserters available on the market today. It is a great product and is highly recommended as a companion for your GBC modular binding punch. With GBC quality construction and reliable service, it makes the perfect compliment to any of your GBC equipment, or any binding equipment, for that matter.
Ideal for high-volume users such as printers, copy shops, binderies and in-plant print shops, the CBC CC2700 is a reliable spiral coil inserter and could potentially be a great option. Though it may not be the cheapest spiral coil inserter available, the quality and features it offers make it a more than worthwhile choice for your spiral coil insertion needs.
