If your office needs the efficiency of an automatic thermal binding machine, then the Accel Ultra and Accel Ultra Plus by Coverbind are great solutions. The Accel Ultra will handle spine sizes from 1/16" to 5/8", and the Accel Ultra Plus will handle sizes from 3/4" to 1 ½". With these workhorse machines, you can bind the full variety of Coverbind thermal binding covers, allowing you to make both soft cover and hard cover books with ease. They can produce thermal bound books as quickly as 1 per second*, as will bind multiple documents in the same cycle. They are incredibly easy to operate, and require very little training to use. All you have to do place your pages into a Coverbind cover of your choice, place the cover into the machine, press start, and the machine will do the rest automatically. This means your operator doesn't need to stand by the unit to continue inserting books; they insert them all at once, and then can walk away to perform other tasks while it binds. This feature is called "Drop&Go" and is very valuable among all kinds of users, as it will save money on labor costs.
With the Coverbind Accel Ultra thermal binding machines, your operator can place multiple documents* at once in batches, or as few as one book, without having to worry about minimum-run costs. The binding process takes about 1 minute*, and, once complete, the Accel Ultra will notify the operator it is done by sounding a chirp and changing the light on the exit from green to red. This speed of bind is about 45 times faster than other traditional binding methods, saving your business even more money on labor costs, and allowing you to meet even rush demands without stress.
Document binding has never been more efficient than with the Coverbind Accel Ultra, which was designed specifically for high-end users. It holds double the sheet capacity of it's competitors, and cuts the binding/processing time in half. These third generation hot binding machines have been perfected over the years to meet the needs and demands of users; there are no better quality or high-producing units on the market. The Bindomatic Accel Ultra by Coverbind is an industry leader when it comes to thermal book binding, and the reason is obvious. They're machines look sleek, perform with little maintenance, and create pristine, professional looking documents without high labor costs.

Accel Ultra Instructions:① Turn on the Ultra or Ultra Plus thermal binding machine from the screen. Gather all of your sheets together into a stack and place the stack into the spine size selector on the top of the machine. The screen will display which Coverbind cover spine size you should be using based on the document thickness. The Accel Ultra will bind documents using spine sizes from 1/16" up to 5/8", while the Accel Plus will bind documents using spine sizes from 3/4" to 1 ½".
② Insert your pages into the Coverbind cover of your choice in the indicated spine size, and place the cover into the unit, spine-side down. You can place them one at a time, or in batches. The Ultra will hold up to 5/8" thick books in each section, or if binding smaller books, as many books as will fit into that 5/8" capacity. The Ultra Plus will hold up to 1 ½" between sections, or multiple thinner books that equal that capacity.
③ Press start, and walk away. Or if you have more documents to load, place them just as before into the open sections as the machine rotates the books through, and exposes more open sections. The Drop&Go technology feature means that once your Accel Ultra is loaded, you don't have to stand around or perform any other tasks while it binds. The Accel Ultra will chime and the binding light on the side of the machine will turn red when the binding process is complete (which takes about 1 minute*) so that your operator can remove the finished documents, and load more documents to be bound.
Accel Ultra Benefits & Features:• Fast - The Accel Ultra is incredibly fast, binding books as fast as 1 per second (yes, per second) for an average output of up to 60 documents per minute*. This is about 45 times faster than any other traditional binding method, saving your operators a lot of time so you can meet rush-order requirements, without high production costs.
• Easy - The Accel Ultra is so simple to use, that anyone in your office can be an operator. Three simple steps will bind perfectly finished hard and soft cover books of many kinds. There is no complicated punching, paper waste, hole alignment, inserting, or closing required. Just place your pages into the Coverbind cover, place the cover into the machine, and press start.
• Strong - Coverbind glue and cover spines are unlike any other thermal binding glue and covers on the market. The glue is an EVA adhesive, which is incredibly strong. It is pre-applied to the spines in strips, not poured in, which eliminates the possibility of seeping, as well as guarantees a perfect bind from the first page, to the last. Within the glue there is also a cotton mesh that is exposed as the glue liquefies. This mesh grabs your pages, pulls them in for a perfectly square finish, and once cooled, creates an unbeatable strength-of-bind. All these features combined mean that with Coverbind covers, there are virtually no paper stock limitations; whether you are using plain paper, digital printed stocks, glossy coated pages, or even laminated sheets -- they can do it all.
• Versatile - The Accel Ultra is versatile, able to bind thermal binding covers of many spine thicknesses and sheet sizes all-together; there are no complicated size changeovers or setting adjustments needed. There is a very large selection of Coverbind covers available, so you can make soft cover books or hard cover books of many kinds, as well as have the ability to customize your books in-house.
• Small Footprint - The Accel Ultra and Ultra Plus thermal binder machines are compact enough to sit on a worktable, leaving your valuable floor space clear. It measures just 25” W x 29 ½" D x 17” H and weighs about 106 lbs. For desk placement, it is recommended at about waist-height for your operator, which allows them to look down into the unit and more easily place their documents in. An optional workstation that was built specifically for the Accel Ultra is also available.
• One of a Kind - Coverbind is the only brand that offers automated thermal binding equipment like the Accel Ultra, the Accel Ultra Plus, and their little sister, the Accel Cube.
• Attractive - The sleek, all-black design looks expensive, and fits perfectly into any office or workroom. It will impress visitors, and goes along well with the premium product output.
• Perfected Design - The Accel Ultra is a third generation Bindomatic machine by Coverbind, that has been perfected to meet the needs of our users.
• Eco-Friendly - Coverbind covers are 100% recyclable.

I RECOMMEND THIS FOR:
The Accel Ultra from Coverbind is the ultimate in thermal binding, offering a level of speed and flexibility that you simply can’t get from any other machine. This unit is automated, so is ideal for large binding facilities and daily users; anyone who binds more than about 10,000 documents per year (800+ per month). This powerful machine will drastically improve your production speed while freeing up your operator’s time to perform other tasks. It will help you make books of all kinds, including with both soft and hard covers. Some of the popular customers include large schools (yearbooks, publications, gifts for parents, course catalogs), businesses (proposals, presentations, annual reports, board meeting tools), real estate agencies (proposals, sales tools, home buyer gifts), photography studios (photo books, gallery highlights, sponsorship/donor requests), and so many more. Consider the Cube for a lower volume, while still having the convenience and efficiency of automation.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT:
The Ultra is my favorite binding machine, bar-none. Not just in the thermal category, but across every style and every type of binding; nothing else on the market compares. And here’s why…
As a part of the Coverbind Accel line, the Ultra takes the traditional thermal bind method and brings it to a completely new class level. The most unique feature of this machine is the continuous loading with automatic binding, which is how it can achieve speeds up to 60 books per minute (and no, that’s not a typo). Along with its little sister, the Cube, this machine is the only of its kind that offers Drop & Go technology that lets you literally drop in your books, and walk away from the machine. This means no more punching, punching, punching, looping, and closing over and over again, spending several minutes per book – just drop and go!
This also means that it is incredibly simple to use, so anyone in your shop can make their own books on-demand, as needed, with an incredibly low run cost. You can even bind books with the children on “take your kids to work day” – it is that easy, and that safe. Place your pages into the cover size selector, place your pages into a cover, and drop the cover into the machine; that’s it, you’re done.
Its ability to work with the full range of Coverbind covers means you can make soft covers with a clear front, soft covers with a window linen front, hard covers, and hard covers with a window – this versatility is a major benefit over traditional machines that only let you produce one look. It lets you make premium hard covers for your VIP clients, and keep to the more simple, soft cover look for internal documents. There are even customizable covers that you can print on-demand in your office. This machine will not only impress your staff using it, but also the people that you present the documents to, whether they be investors, customers, or anyone in between.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
There are two versions of the Ultra to choose from: The Ultra or the Ultra Plus. The standard model will accept up to 5/8” covers, and the Plus will accept up to 1-1/2” covers. Other that that decision, the real only other consideration is the price. Some customers have expressed a bit of sticker shock, but let’s remember that this is not a traditional thermal binder, and when you consider all of the benefits –and the fact that it will save you a lot of money in labor— you will see the true value of this powerful machine.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
I think it is pretty clear that I love the Accel Ultra automated thermal binding machine. This fairly small, unimposing unit packs a powerful punch, drastically increasing production speed and efficiency. It is so easy to use, that literally anyone can do it. Your operators will thank you, as the Ultra makes labor fatigue is a thing of the past.
The Ultra will bind documents up to 5/8" thick, whereas the Ultra+ will bind documents up to 1 ½" thick. It is the same price for both models.
If you bind primarily thinner books, the Ultra is easier to use than the Ultra+ because the space between the separators is smaller, making it easier to handle thin books.
Yes, there are virtually no limitations to the kind of paper stock the Accel Ultra and Ultra+ will bind. This is because the unique EVA glue is the strongest in the industry, and is reinforced further with a cotton mesh that creates an even-bind from the first page to the last. Our customers easily bind with glossy stocks, coated papers, textured sheets, laminated pages, and more.
It will automatically pause the binding process until emptied. Once emptied, it will automatically run again.
The Accel Ultra is actually an upgraded version of the 9000 (and the Ultra Plus an upgraded 9000EX) so they are the same in function, with a new, upgraded look.
The Accel Ultra uses a standard 110V outlet, and includes a power supply. While it does not require a dedicated outlet for the machine only, it is recommended whenever possible.
There is no maintenance required for the Accel Ultra or Ultra+ thermal binding machines. They are plug-and-play units that are incredibly durable. If an error occurs, we can almost always walk you through the issue over the phone. We also offer on-site service technicians for an additional cost, if needed.
