Pro-Bind Thermal Binding

Thermal binding machines are sometimes referred to as therm-a-bind or thermobind machines and provide a quick easy way to bind your documents, reports, presentations and proposals. Thermal Binding Machines use heat to bind your documents in professional, full wrap one piece covers. You simply place your pages in your cover and then put both in your Thermal Binding Machine. You can use a thermal binding machine to bind both hard cover and soft cover documents and can even make your own covers using Thermal Binding Gluestrips.

Pro-Bind Hard Cover Crimper

The Pro-Bind Hard Cover Book Crimper provides the perfect finish to Hard Bound
Books. This hardcover crimper is needed for finishing thermal hard cover cases in order to give your books the correct spine adjustment. Using the Probind hardback book crimper is as easy as 1-2-3. Immediately after the binding cycle
is done, retract the handle on the crimper and place the spine of the book flat on the base towards the back of the hardcover crimper. Then release the handle and let the book stand in the crimper for at least 60 seconds or until the book is cool to the touch. Then retract the handle and remove the book. It is as simple as that. Just make sure that when you bind the book that the spine is square and that the pages are jogged evenly and laid flat inthe spine for the best possible bind.
