Marlon 350E Double-Head Spiral Coil Crimper Review
When you use color coils to bind your documents, it's necessary to crimps the ends of all spines. If you don't, you'll find that the coils will spin right out of your documents, meaning you'll need to re-bind them. That's why should consider using a device such as the Marlon 350E Double-Head Spiral Coil Crimper. Here are the strengths and weaknesses of this product so you can decide if it's right for you.
The 350E can crimp color coils ranging from 6 to 50 millimeters in diameter. This makes it a must-have device if you're interested in spiral binding, especially if you own a Marlon binding device.
This crimper has a waste chute to dispose of bits of coil. The waste can be stored in an ordinary grocery bag so there's no need for special disposal supplies. Also, by using a grocery bag, you'll be reusing something, which can be beneficial to the environment. (That's always a good thing in this day and age.)
The 350E can work with documents that are up to 14 inches long, so it's perfect for letter- and legal-sized documents. If your books are on the small side, you'll be glad to know that this device can process works that are only 3.5" long.
This machine comes with a foot pedal so you'll be able to keep your hands free when crimping your coils. The foot pedal makes operating this device extremely easy, especially if you're used to working with handheld crimpers. You'll also be able to process a lot of documents quickly because this device can perform up to 50 cycles per minute.
The 350E is a standalone device so you don't need to have any other Marlon equipment to get use out of it.
Finally, this machine is very affordable. Plus, it's backed by a one-year warranty so you're covered if you have any problems with it.
This device's main weakness is that it requires three blades of different sizes. The crimper only comes with one blade installed which is for processing coils that are 8 to 25 millimeters in diameter. Thus, you'll need to swap out the blades when you're working with documents of different sizes.
The 350E is pretty heavy. It weighs 50 pounds so you might find the shopping costs are a bit high.
As you can see, the Marlon 350E Double-Head Spiral Coil Crimper has many more strengths than weaknesses. This device is the perfect alternative to handheld crimpers, especially if you need to crimp the coils of a lot of documents. The machine is packed with great features including its ability to work with both large and small documents, its innovative waste system, and its hands-free operation. This crimper is very easy to use and it can be used on its own. While it would be nice if you didn't need to change the blade, overall this is an excellent crimper and it's a must-have device for coil binding practitioners.
