Technology Brief
GBC eWire
Print, Punch and Bind All Inline
The first fully automated inline binding system
using traditional twin-loop wire binding eliminates
the need for manual binding. The GBC eWire runs
inline with selected Xerox® printers and the GBC
AdvancedPunch™ Pro, so your books are produced
seamlessly – from printing to punching to a
finished wire-bound book.
The GBC eWire is the first fully inline mechanical binding system for
creating twin loop wire-bound booklets. This unique solution combining
the GBC AdvancedPunch Pro and GBC eWire eliminates separate
punching, collating and binding operations so you can initiate a fully
automated workflow with just the touch of a button. And your shop
can create professionally bound documents as quickly and easily as
they can be printed. Whether you’re producing high-end proposals for
professional bids, corporate manuals or general booklets for healthcare,
real estate or legal applications, wire binding provides strong, durable
documents combined with an attractive and professional appearance.
