Akiles CoilMac ECP Series Set-Up
- Use Coil Size Guide to determine the correct Depth Margin and Coil Diameter. (See Picture 1)
- To adjust the correct Punching Margin, press and rotate the Depth Margin Control. (See Picture 2)
- (OPTIONAL) You may use the Coil Diameter Selector to determine or double check that you are using the correct coil diameter for your document. (See Picture 3)
- (HINT) To properly adjust the depth margin, press and rotate the Depth margin Control at the same time. Release it upon reaching the desired position. The Depth Margin Control button must bounce-back upon release. If it does not bounce-back, rotate it slightly back and forth until it does so. (See Picture 4)
Akiles CoilMac ECP Series Punching
- Use the Punch Throat Ruler and Side Margin Control to center the punching of your document. (See Picture 1 & 2) Hint: Insert a sheet and make sure you disengage any hole that is left partially exposed on the Punch Throat Ruler. Failing to do so will leave a partially perforated hole at the edge of your document.
CoilMac-ECP models: Various disengageable pins can be found at strategically designed positions, to avoid partially perforated holes in most common sheet sizes (such as 11”, 8-1/2”, 14”, A4 & A5, etc)
CoilMac-ECP+ model: Full disengageable pins guarantees a clean punch on any standard or custom size sheets. Also, specifically designed 0.2475” Pitch gives you 44 evenly centered holes in a 11” sheet, which results in adequate hole to edge-of-sheet margins and easier coil insertion.
- Press foot pedal to punch. (See Picture 3)
For Punching Document 14” (356mm) or Larger
- Align sheets as indicated on Punch Throat Ruler. Make sure all Die Disengagement Pins are pushed in.
- Insert sheets and press Foot Pedal to punch. (See Picture 1)
- Remove sheets and flip them over as illustrated. (See Picture 2)
- Insert sheet from right-hand side. Press Foot Pedal to Punch. (See Picture 3)
- IMPORTANT: Document must be inserted in such a way as to place one of the relady perforated holes onto the Continuous Punch Guide. Make sure that the last hole (Document edge), if partially covered by the Punch Throat & Ruler, is aligned to a disengaged die, otherwise your document will be left partially perforated.
