CM701 Manual Comb Binding Machine
Welcome to New Zealand Binding, in this video we are going to demonstrate the CM701 which is our professional level manual comb machine.
First you’ll need to check the pins are in the correct position for the page dimension you are using, in this case all pushed in for A4.
Before you start any binding always test with a piece of scrap paper to ensure that the holes are centred along the length of the document.
You can adjust the position of the holes by moving the paper guide and margin lever.
Now that we’re ready to bind make sure pages are level and place the document into the machine ensuring it is tight against the paper guide.
When ready pull down the large handle on the right to punch the paper and put the pages face down on the desk.
We recommend punching no more than 25 sheets of 80 gsm paper or 2 clear acetate covers in one go to avoid damaging the machine.
Once all sheets have been punched place the comb over the teeth of spreader.
Pull the handle on the left slowly, making sure the comb opens towards you.
Place the document face down onto the comb so that it doesn’t come apart in use.
Then push the handle forward gently to close.
Your document is now ready and can be removed.
Don’t forget when binding to empty the tray regularly as this will avoid the machine getting jammed.
