Welcome to MyBinding video. Today we look at the CoilMac ER Plus, a 4:1 pitch, oval hole, coil binding machine by Akiles. Let's watch it in action as we make a book.
With scrap paper, let's set our settings. First, the side margin control. Set this so the punches are consistent throughout your whole project. On the ER Plus, you can remove any of the disengageable die pins. Do this so there are no half holes no matter what size paper you have. Set the depth of margin control knob so that you can decide what size margin you want. Larger is stronger but smaller holds thicker books.
Once everything is set and you like the way it comes out, you're ready to go. Let's begin with the covers. Place them in, spine in first, and make your punch. Continue on through the rest of your project, punching up to 20 sheets of 20lb paper per lift. When your whole project is punched, organize it. It's time to bind.
Once you've selected the right size coil, begin to thread it on by hand through the first few holes. Operate the inserter by pressing the pedal either with hand or foot and drive the coil all the way through the spine. To finish off, crimp both ends with coil crimping pliers. Feel free to check out our How To video on coil crimping. And there it is. Coil binding made easy with the CoilMac ER+ by Akiles.

An In-Depth Look at the Akiles CoilMac ER+ Coil Binding Machine
Coil binding is one of the main binding methods and it can really add a professional look to all your documents. There are lots of coil binders available including the Akiles CoilMac ER+. Let’s take a look at this machine and see what it has to offer and if it would be right for you.
- Punching capacity: The CoilMac ER+ has a very good punching capacity. It can punch 20 sheets of 20 lb. bond paper at once and it can also handle hardboard if you need a sturdier type of paper for your document’s covers.
- Punching length and disengageable dies: This machine has 54 fully disengageable dies so you can punch different sizes of paper. The default punching length is 13 inches, but your documents can be shorter than that or as long as 26 inches. The dies themselves are extremely sharp and durable so you’ll get perfect results every time. This machine punches in a 4:1 pitch pattern.
- Margin control: In addition to being able to punch different sizes of paper, you’ll be able to control where exactly your document is punched thanks to the CoilMac ER+’s adjustable depth of punch margin control. When you use this feature, the holes will be punched right where you want them. This will result in easy-to-turn pages and a sturdier binding. And the holes will be evenly centered thanks to the device’s side margin control.
- Binding capacity: You can bind documents containing over 400 pages with this device.
- Oval holes: While most coil binders punch circular holes, this machine punches oval ones. This allows the spines to be inserted much more quickly.
- Built-in coil inserter: The CoilMac ER+ has a coil inserter built right into it. It’s located on the left side of the machine and is operated by a foot pedal. Using this feature both speeds up and simplifies the process. Choosing the right coil will be easy too because this device has a coil selector. There’s even a pair of crimpers included so you can properly finish off your documents.
- Solid construction: So many binding machines these days contain plastic parts but that’s not the case with the CoilMac ER+. It has all-metal parts so you can be confident that it can be used for years to come. There are rubber feet on the bottom of it so it will stay in one place during operation and there’s a large chip tray to hold all of your paper scraps.
- Warranty: Finally, the CoilMac ER+ is covered by a one-year warranty.
