The GBC MC12 is a robust easy to use manually operated Wire Closing machine. It is designed for use with any wire binding punch and can handle all wire sizes from Size 4 to Size 20. This machine’s manual operation and universal handle make wire binding easy: at your desk, on a table or at a workstation. Adjustable knobs ensure that spines close evenly for a polished book. Whilst, the serrated jaw edge grips the wire as it is formed to ensure a perfect closer every time.

All steel construction makes the MC12 robust for constant daily use. This model is very popular when partnered with a GBC Magna Punch Pro.

Why GBC?

GBC is a specialist brand that manufactures high-performance business machines and systems. The GBC story began in 1947 when founder, William Lane, and two business partners helped a local printer. They created a faster, more reliable way to bind and laminate.

GBC, or General Binding Corporation, has a proven history of providing world class, innovative solutions. Often creating first to market ideas and leading the way in specialist binding and laminating. In 1960, GBC introduced the first machine to combine punching and binding, the KomboKoil. Quickly followed by the first electric desktop punch in 1961. GBC were also the first to introduce a tabletop A4 pouch laminator which they first launched in 1966.

Today, GBC has over 70 years of industry expertise; becoming the Global Leader in Binding and desktop laminating.
