GBC CombBind C340 Manual Plastic Comb Binding Machine Review

Overview:

The GBC CombBind C340 is a newest, manual, plastic comb binding machine available from GBC. The CombBind C340 offers a new, stylishly designed manual punch and other features completely unique to any other plastic comb binding machines. Because of this, and other important factors, the C340 promises to make your binding projects both quicker and easier.

Features:

The GBC CombBind C340 has a variety of unique and useful features, including a document separator The document separator works to speed up punching by separating pages into perfect sections every time. In addition to this technology, the CombBind C340 machine also uses auto-centering technology. This feature can saves a great deal of setup time by eliminating the need to set the paper edge guide before punching. Time-savings features like these are definitely worth their weight in gold - or at least, in productivity.

With a 25 sheet (or more accurately, 22 sheet), punching capacity, it is one of the largest punch-capacities offered by a manual comb-binding machine. This is another highly-desired feature that help the C340 stand out from the crowd. But the features don't end there; the CombBind C340 is made with an ergonomically designed handle. This handle works for those who are left handed or those who are right handed, makes the C340 completely functional to operate for any personnel.

Limitations:

While there are several nice features included in the C340, there are also some limitations. To begin with, there is no depth-of-punch guide. This is critical because without it, you can't choose the distance of the holes from the edge of the paper. In addition, there are no disengageable dies. These disengageable dies allow the machine to punch custom sized sheets. The C340 also is without an open throat design, making it unable to punch legal or A4 sized documents. This does limit the versatility of the machine and should be kept in mind when making your decision.

There are other limitations associated with a manual punching mechanism. Because of its manual punch, the volume that the C340 can handle is limited. This makes the CombBind C340 unsuitable for high volume applications because of the time and inconvenience a manual operation presents.

Finally, although the rotary comb-opener design is functional, it's not as easy to use as the traditional comb opener that uses a handle for operation. This can also add time and aggravation to certain projects and applications and again, should be kept in mind when making a purchasing decision of this kind.

Construction:

The GBC CombBind C340 is fine for occasional use, but it is primarily made of plastic. This makes the machine less durable and therefore, could potentially need replacement much sooner.

There are however, some desirable design traits on this innovative machine. The CombBind C340 has several new features such as a document separator and an auto-centering guide, which are helpful to the binding process. These are the kind of features that many small to midsized organizations are looking for and the ComBind C340 delivers. The CBC CombBind C340, while not ideal of very large corporations with high volume needs, could be perfectly suitable for small to medium sized operations with lower volume needs.

Recommendation:

So, even though there are some definite limitations with the CombBind C340, there are also some unique features that aid in style and functionality. Because of this, the GBC CombBind C340 can be a good choice for routine comb binding and is recommended for that use. With its plastic construction and other limitations, however, it is probably not ideal for higher-volume applications and could not stand up to the challenges of durability and speed that these organizations are looking for.
