The BB50H-M3 high speed semi-automatic wire binding machine will help your print shop or bindery achieve output of up to 1,200 documents per hour* with minimal operator action needed. All your operator has to do is set up the machine for the wire size being used, install the wire spool (or SnakeSkin Wire with feeder), and then begin placing the pre-punched documents into the machine. One document at a time, it will automatically cut the wire, position it in the punched holes, and close the wire, finishing the bind. The BB50H-M3 will handle documents as long as 20", which allows for even large books. It will bind small 1/4" wires up to 1" wires in both 3:1 and 2:1 pitch ratios. This wire finishing machine will also work with skip binding and calendar hangers up to 16" long. It can even perform the skip binding function without calendars, for unique binding edges without that restriction.
On average, machine setup takes only about 15 minutes, which includes the size setup. All tool changes and settings are easily accomplished from the front of the machine, making them easily accessible without having to move the machine or leave it in a central location. The touch screen control panel guides the user through the process, and helps you achieve the large variety of adjustments for sizes, pitches, and formats. The BB50H-M3 is manufactured by James Burn, who is world-renowned for their high quality and innovative automatic binding equipment, and the BB50H-M3 fits in well with their product line.
