Some high-end binding machines come equipped with electric coil crimpers, but the manual coil crimping pliers are adequate for most small-to-medium volume coil binding projects. For those who already own a coil binding machine that does not have an electric crimper but want to add that feature without investing in a new full-function binding machine, stand-alone crimping units are also available.
Modular crimper and cutters are great for projects that involve using multiple sizes of connections. If you wanted the flexibility to crimp multiple types of connections like telephone and data, these are the perfect for the job!
You would think that after all these years of using my hands on a daily basis that my hands and fingers would remain limber. Yet, just the opposite is true, I find my hands becoming cramped when involved in applications that require repetitive crimps. That's why my choice is the Crimp Pro Crimper Frame from Pros Kit. This ratcheting style crimper frame is much easier on my hands, especially when working with the large installs.
The ratchet wire crimper uses a mechanism that crimps stranding and the insulation grip portion of connectors all in one motion for superior strain relief of the hand. These provide an easy means to crimp wires with ease and are also very versatile as many have multiple cavities for crimping wires of various sizes. Crimpers that come with strippers make the experience of wire crimping much more seamless and convenient by incorporating both into a single tool.
To use the coil crimping pliers, hold them so that the red dot on the top of the pliers faces away from your palm. Hold the bound document so that the coil that needs to be crimped is at the top. Insert the pliers so that the lower jaw is below the coil rung that you want to crimp and the top jaw is positioned above it. Squeeze the handles to cut the coil and continue to apply pressure until the pliers are completely closed in order to crimp it. Repeat the process on the other end of the coil to finish the bind.
