INFORMATION ON RING MECHANISMS

There are three common types of fittings that we use on a daily basis, they consist of:

 
Fitting sheet sizes and gauges Where to measure the capacity

These are available in 2,3,4 & 6 rings, with varying gauges to suit all paper types.  They are available in capacities from 10mm to 100mm.

Generally,  round ring mechanisms are fitted into the spine – D & Arch rings to back cover.

The capacity is determined by measuring the mechanism as shown above, not by measuring the spine which is always greater.  For example;  25mm capacity = 41mm spine, 40mm capacity = 58mm spine, 50mm capacity = 78mm spine.

It is sometimes difficult to measure the capacity of a fitting, but there are only certain capacities for styles of fittings. Example a D ring which measures 39mm capacity will be 40mm, and a round ring which measures 33m will be a 32mm.
