Frequently Asked Questions

Q1) What is a wire closer?

A. When we punch documents the next step is to wire them. There are manual as well as automatic wire closers being offered by Akiles. What the wire closer does is that it helps to first insert and then close the wire spines into the documents producing professionally tailored booklets.

Take a look at the video for better understanding.

Q2) How safe is the Automatic Wire Closer?

A. With respect to its safety the users need not to worry at all because there is a safety sensor installed in the upper jaw which does not close down until and unless it senses a wire bind only.

Q3) What to do if the wire moves right before the closing process?

A. This won’t happen as it comprises of a magnetic back which sticks the wire to itself so that it’s unable to move and the wire closing process is done perfectly.
