Wire-O® FLEX

James Burn International, the inventor of the Original Wire-O® double loop binding system, introduces a patented revolutionary packaging concept, the Wire-O® FLEX.

With Wire-O® FLEX,

No more tangled spools due to bad handling or rough transport,

No more scraped loops as a result of spool changes,

Simplified storage,

Ultra quick and easy set up,

Reduced machine stops or downtime,

Reduced waste management cost : no more flanges, tubes, cups to dismantle, separate and store before being scrapped.

Wire-O® FLEX is available in two types of packaging. It is protected in a high density PE film and can’t tangle.

For large users, it is available in large boxes for 2:1 sizes (5/8″, 3/4″, 7/8″ & 1″) which contain approximately 3 times more loops than standard spools of equivalent sizes. This Wire-O® FLEX  packaging is the perfect solution for those of our customers looking for cost effective solutions to increase their production efficiency. It provides 5 to 10% productivity gain pending on wire size, especially when high speed in line binding machines are being used. Wire-O® FLEX  can be run on most automatic wire binding machines and not just JBI machines.
