The new RILECART B-535 from Spiel Associates is a fully automatic double loop wire binder capable of binding books at the pace of 3,000 per hour. The operator drops a book on the conveyor and the B-535 inserts the wire, crimps the wire, and delivers the book onto a conveyor.
The machine will bind books from 3.25-by-4 inches up to 12-by-12.5 inches. Spiral diameters can range from .25 of an inch to 1.25 inch, allowing for a maximum book thickness of one inch. Skip binding up to five parts is attainable. An in-line punching section is optional. A calendar machine is also available.
