Binding Machines

Thermal Binding Machines -- What They Do: Thermal binding machines bind pages directly to the spine of thermal covers in a desktop version of "perfect binding". The covers' spine is heated so that adhesive on the spine becomes thin enough to slightly wick into the pages. When cool, the glue becomes part of the page, ensuring a strong bond. There's no hole punching, or difficulty lining up coils or combs.  Most heating times are 45 to 120 seconds.  Machines can do several art once. 
How to Pick the Right Thermal Binding Machine: Thermal binding machines work at as low as 225F for Unibind machines, and up to 375F for Coverbind and Pro-Bind. Fellowes machines run  cooler but would still melt Unibind's coverings.  To get the best machine you'll first need to settle on who's thermal binding products you plan to use. Then you can determine which models,
features and pricing makes sense.
