Plastic color coil binding is one of GBC’s most impressive lay-flat binding solutions. Color coil balances form with function, creating professional documents that would stand the demands of everyday use. Documents lie completely flat when opened. Pages are easily accessible and tightly secured – perfect for documents used frequently. The bright plastic coil threads through documents up to one inch or 25 mm thick for secure fastening. Pages conveniently wrap all the way around the spine. Best of all, color coil holds its shape, bouncing back when compressed. In order to produce attractive color coil documents, you need a versatile production system from GBC; one that’s flexible enough to bind documents from five to 250 sheets thick, from five to 12 inches or from 12 to 30 cm long. You need the CI12.

The CI12 is so easy to use that anyone can quickly become an expert at coil binding. First, start the plastic color coil in the first few punched holes. Then, grasp the book with both hands and lightly position the coil element against the rollers. The coil will spin quickly through the document. Next, place the book on the crimping station. One quick pull on the crimping handle and both ends of the coil are cut and crimped. It’s this easy to bind color coil documents of all sizes. The CI12 offers two important features over competitive systems which contribute to productivity. First, the CI12 is equipped with two rollers rather than one. Two long continuous rollers offer greater control and faster insertion. Other systems drive coil with a single, much thinner roller, resulting in less control. Second, the CI12 features an automatic crimping station with precise, heavy-duty cutting and crimping knives. Once the crimper is adjusted for the proper size, documents are cut and crimped on both ends with a simple operation of the handle. The precision knives ensure a good crimp which, in turn, ensures the coil does not spin out of the book during shipping and handling. GBC knows that you expect your production equipment to be rugged and durable. That’s why we built the CI12 to last. Ultra-tough, solid steel parts and other rugged components are used extensively throughout the machine, resulting in unbeatable durability and long life. Greater durability means fewer breakdowns and significantly improved reliability. In the unlikely event that a problem does occur, you can count on GBC’s network of highly trained service technicians to quickly get your machine back up and running. This means that you can depend on the CI12 even during crunch times when you can’t afford downtime and work stoppages. The CI12 offers a number of adjustment points for fine-tuning the inserter’s operation. The rollers adjust to three different positions to allow for maximum roller contact for all coil sizes. Position number one is for the smallest coils, five to 13 mm. The second position is for coils 14 to 22 mm. And the third position is for coils 25 mm and larger.

The CI12 offers a number of adjustment points for fine tuning the inserter's operation. The rollers adjust to three different positions to allow for maximum roller contact for all coil sizes. Position number 1 is for the smallest coils, 5 to 12 millimetres. The second position is for coils 14 to 22 millimetres and the third position is for coils 25 millimetres and larger.

The cut and crimping knives also adjust for a variety of coil and document sizes. To adjust the knives for a different book size, simply place the left edge against the side guide. Next, adjust the right knife assembly by moving it left or right so that the coil from the last hole from the right fits into the groove. Tighten the knob and your length setting is complete.

You can also adjust the knife assembly for a variety of coil sizes. Using the tool provided, position the knife assembly so that the centre blade is at the midpoint of the coil. A knife assembly for coils 8 millimetres in diameter is also provided. Once you've adjusted the crimping knives for your particular job, you can insert, cut and crimp coils in seconds.

GBC CI12 Electric Coil Inserter with Cut and Crimp Knives Review

Binding a document with spiral coil includes a number of important steps. You need to punch the pages, insert the coil through the holes on the document and then you need to crimp the ends of the coil so that they won't spin off the book. Unfortunately, this can be a very time consuming process. The GBC CI12 is designed to help reduce the time that it takes to insert and crimp documents that you are binding with spiral coil.  It allows you simply insert the coil onto your documents and in one simple step crimp both ends of your document. For high volume users the GBC CI12 can save hours of crimping time while ensuring high quality uniform crimps on all your documents.  This review will provide a brief overview of the strengths and weaknesses of this machine.

Strengths / Features:

  • The CI12 has both an inserting roller and a pair of cut and crimp knives. The roller on the front of the machine works just like any high quality spiral coil inserter. However, the real time savings that is offered by this machine is in the crimping. Normally you would need to use a pair of crimping pliers on one side of the book and then flip the document over and crimp the other side of the document. The CI12 simplifies this process by crimping both the left and right side of the document at the same time. Plus, you don't have to worry about strain caused by operating a pair of crimping pliers repetitively.
  • The high quality coil inserter included on the front of this machine is similar to the GBC CC2700 coil inserter. It offers dual spinning rollers that can be adjusted for different sizes of books. Using the rollers you should be able to insert coils up to 33mm in diameter onto your books.
  • The cut and crimp knives on this machine can be adjusted to handle a number of different book sizes and thicknesses. They can be used for documents with a binding edge as short as 3" and as long as 2". They can also be used to crimp a number of different sizes of spiral coil. In fact, they can handle any size of coil between 6mm and 33mm. They can even accomodate different pitches of spiral coil.
  • When it comes to finishing your books, the CI12 makes things incredibly simple. All you need to do is insert the coil onto the edge of your book. Slide the document into place on the machine and press down on the handle. It doesn't get much easier than that.
  • The CI12 is designed for high volume applications inside of print shops, binderies or large organizations. Organizations that do a lot of coil binding will find that this machine can pay for itself within a matter of months or years. The value of this machine over other coil inserters is all in the time savings that it offers.

Weaknesses / Limitations:

  • The GBC CI-12 is really designed for large runs of similar sized books. It takes a few minutes to get the machine set up for a new size of document and size of coil. If you are producing a hundred or a thousand books this shouldn't be a problem. However, if you need to create five books you are better off simply using a pair of crimping pliers. In fact, you can always use the coil inserter on the front of this machine and use a pair of coil crimpers for small runs. Save the cut and crimp knives for larger runs and save yourself the headaches involved in getting the machine set up.
  • This machine is limited in the length of documents that it can crimp. The two crimping heads can be set up for handing books up to twelve inches in length. If you need to bind documents longer than this you will want to use a pair of crimping pliers or you will need to crimp one end at a time. Likewise, this machine is limited in the thickness of the documents that it can handle. It is designed for use with books up to 33mm in diameter. Books larger than this will require you to insert the coils by hand and complete the crimping process using a traditional pair of crimping pliers.

Recommendation:

  • The GBC CI12 is an innovative coil inserter that includes the ability to cut and crimp the spine of your document in one easy step.
  • This machine is ideal for large binderies, print shops, copy shops and organizations that produce large volumes of coil bound documents.
  • This machine is best suited for companies that do long runs of similar sized documents and are looking for a way to cut labor costs and increase productivity. However, it is not ideal for finishing long documents, extremely thick books or for short run applications.
