Post GBC PB2600 Modular Electric Comb Opener Review
by: Jeff McRitchie


Even with the highest speed binding punch on the market, you'll still need a plastic comb opener to spread the combs for page insertion. The GPC PB2600 modular electric comb opener is the tool you need to improve efficiency and speed in the binding process. In a market flooded with manual comb openers, the PB2600 is virtually the only electric comb opener available, and can dramatically save time on one of the most tedious aspects of plastic comb binding - especially for users with a high-speed punch or pre-punched paper.


Using a foot-pedal for operation, the PB2600 frees up your hands to hold the documents while inserting your pages onto the combs. If you are not a fan of the foot-pedal, however, you can open the combs with a touch of a button - a large one, located at the top of the machine. In addition, the PB2600 can remember your previous setting, allowing for quick and easy opening of any combs that are the same size, reducing the need for a new set-up with each similar project.

This machine is the most accurate comb opening system available on the market, and has several adjustment features to ensure accuracy. For example, you can use the large knob on the side of the machine to set the width of the comb opening. For larger documents, you can also tap the foot pedal to open the combs incrementally, a very important feature when inserting pages onto large oval shaped combs. In addition, this machine has curious little black tabs on its back. These tabs are actually a very unique feature called, "no flip stoppers," These tabs are designed to ensure that large oval binding combs will not slip on the machine during the opening process, which is very important for fast and efficient binding practices.

The PB2600 is designed to be paired with one of the GBC modular binding punches such as the Magnapunch, MP2500ix or MP2000PB. The PB2600 neatly stacks on top of one of these machines or can be placed beside the punch to allow two users to work on the binding process simultaneously.


With the PB2600's ease of use and solid construction, there really are few, if any, limitations to this product. The only potential issue apparent is that if used in the field, the machine can become dirty or over time. When the machine does become dirty, the equipment can become clogged with dirt or dust and jammed and lose its ability to perform. Because of this, the opening hooks should be cleaned and lubricated periodically to prevent the machine from becoming jammed.


The GBC PB2600 is solidly constructed and built to last. The machine is perfect for almost any comb-opening application and has the GBC standard of excellent binding equipment. Given this, the CBC PB2600 is an excellent option for any moderate to larger applications


This product is highly recommended for organizations that do a great deal of comb binding. The PB2600 is an extremely helpful tool that can more than double the productivity of a standard manual plastic comb opener, making it ideal for printers, copy shops, in plant print shops and binderies. For a smaller organization the machine may be a bit of overkill. However, the GBC2600 is so effective that even if its overkill, it certainly gets the job done, faster and more effectively. This machine is truly the perfect tool for comb binding machine in almost any application as long as it fits within your budget.

So take a look at the PB2600 and see if it is the right solution for your binding needs.
