The Rhin-O-Tuff OD4100 is a module that is designed to be used with the OD-4300 spiral coil inserter.
This device allows you to quickly and easily adapt your OD4300 coil inserter into a more traditional roller style inserter.
OD4300 is a mandrel style inserting machine that is designed for use
with 36" coil lengths. It is great for long runs but doesn't work well
for short run applications or for use with 12" cut length spiral coils.
This machine allows you to have the best of both worlds.
Strengths / Features:
the OD-4100 with the OD-4300 offers your organization a great deal of
flexibility. For long runs and custom length books you can use the
unique inserting system offered by the OD-4300.
OD-4100 give you an option for short run production with 12" standard
coils. This gives your operators a choice depending on the project that
they are working on and their level of training.
is much easier than the OD-4300, especially for untrained or
inexperienced users. With the OD4100 all you have to do is start the
coil onto the edge of the book and then let the coil inserter spin it
on the rest of the way. There are no complex adjustments that need to
The OD4100 is incredibly simple to set up for use
with your OD4300. All you need to do is set it on top of your OD4300
and tighten the knob to fasten it in place. Once you are done using it
and want to switch back you simply undo the large black knob on the
right side of the machine and lift it off. It doesn't get much easier
The OD4300 is only compatible with spiral coils up
to 32mm in diameter. In theory you could use the OD4100 for use with
larger sized coils. However, if you plan on using this device for large
diameter books you might want to consider a spine former to help you
shape the spines of your books.
Weaknesses / Limitations:
OD4100 cannot be used apart from the OD4300. It is simply a set of
rollers. The 4300 provides the power to move the rollers. You can
separate the two machines or use them simultaneously.
OD4300 is designed to be bolted onto an OD4000 or OD4300 rhino tuff
binding punch. If you don't have one of these punches you need to buy
an OD3500 binding station and you can bolt it to that. This means that
you actually need more than just the OD4300 and OD4100 to use this
device. You also need the binding station or Rhin-O-Tuff punch that
will attach to the 4300. If you don't have all of these pieces, the
4100 won't work.
Although the OD4100 says that it can be used
with all pitches and diameters of spiral coil, it is difficult to use
this machine with large sized coils. Binding large sized documents
using an electric coil inserter requires you to shape the spine of your
document to match the curve of the coil. It is also a lot easier if you
use an oval hole pattern.
you already own an OD-4300 coil inserter, I would highly recommend this
as an add on accessory. It is easier to use and adds a great deal of
This system gives you the choice between using 12 inch and 36 inch spiral coils.
However, if you do not yet own the OD4300, I wouldn't necessarily recommend this combination.
OD-4300 is fairly difficult to use and requires an OD series
Rhin-O-Tuff punch or the OD-3500 binding station to function. You
should be able to find a high quality coil inserter for less money than
all of the components that are required for use with this system.
