Welcome to MyBinding video. Let's take a look at the BookletMac, a semi-automatic booklet maker by Akiles. Super easy controls right here on the top of the machine are all you need to operate the BookletMac. Two dials on the top allow you to set the guide so it's consistent for every project.
With your settings all in place and locked down, it's time to fold and staple. With your packets ready to go, jog them into place so they're nice and square. Selecting the manual setting allows you to decide when the machine starts. Your packet will just slide right into place, hit the manual start button, and the machine does its work, folding and stapling perfectly, two staples right on the fold. By selecting automatic mode, the machine will process each packet as you slide it in, up to 800 booklets of 80 pages per hour.
Should you have a need for stapling only and not folding, a small lever on the left hand side of the machine is pulled out and the folding unit is disengaged. The staples are centered and punched clear through. The BookletMac is versatile. A turn dial on the back of the machine and a graph on the front allow you to set for legal, letter, or any custom size you may need. Speed and consistency do not change no matter what the size. It's virtually maintenance-free and changing the staples is as easy as lifting the lid and loading them in. That's it, it's that quick and simple to make many booklets with the BookletMac by Akiles.
