How To Use TIANSE Comb Binding Machine

An Overview Of Comb Binding
Comb binding is an easy, effective and inexpensive method of book binding. It requires little setup to use a comb binder, and almost anyone can easily learn how to use a comb binding machine.

Comb binding is one of many ways to bind pages together into a book. This method uses round plastic spines with 21 rings (for A4 size) or 19 rings (for US letter size) and a hole puncher that makes rectangular holes. Comb binding is also referred to as spiral comb binding or plastic comb binding.

Combing binding machines are commonly used in schools, churches and enterprises. A huge advantage comb binding has over many other binding formats are its ability to be re-opened for removing or adding pages. Moreover, the binding elements can be removed and used again for other document projects as well.

Different Types Of Comb Binders
Depending on the document project and specific needs of the user, comb binding machines are available with different settings and features. The punching mechanism is one of the greatest differences between comb binding machines. Some comb binders are equipped with a manual punch, while others have an electric punch.

You should also be aware of the comb binding machine’s ability to disengage punching dies and adjust the margin depth. A disengaging machine, with selectable dies, will enable you to completely disable the punch and avoid half-holes later in the process. The adjustable margin depth allows the user to adjust the depth into the paper the holes are punched. This is helpful if you are going to bind reports or books of varying thickness.
