Semi Automatic Wire Binder

The James Burn Wire-O® Bind 3500 (WOB) provides high-speed Wire-O® finishing 'on-demand' from cost-efficient spools. At 500-1000 books per hour, the WOB3500 is super-fast, yet simple to operate with all size and format setups instantly adjustable by user-friendly 'touch screen' electronic controls.
