Coverbind CBP1 Expert Review
WHAT I LIKE:
With the Coverbind CBP1 perfect binding machine, you will have complete control over the bookbinding process so you can create perfectly perfect-bound books in a flash. The LCD control panel has straightforward controls that make it easy to change bookbinding settings like the cover stock, angled options, the height of the book thickness, spin positions, and more. When you load up your pages on the block, the automated clamping system will then auto-adjust to fit the size, and you know you're getting tight, clean binds every time.
Your paperback-bound books will come out with a perfectly flat spine, allowing you to display book titles and author names easily. With this perfect binding method, you’ll see how versatile it is, and how you can use it for a wide range of soft-cover books. You'll find that this gluing method is not only productive but cost-efficient as well.
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
If you have limited volume or space, you might not need the Coverbind CBP1. It's easy to move if you need to rearrange your workspace or grab the optional stand to place this table-top binder on if you don't already have a table set aside for it. If your print company demands up to 360 paperback books per hour, I recommend adding this to your shop.
I RECOMMEND THIS FOR:
For a range of binding requirements, from basic to complicated, the Coverbind CBP1 is a great option. I suggest this excellent binder for large businesses that need to fill thousands of books per day at print companies that routinely fulfill on-demand orders for novels. This excellent binder can make your binding procedure quick and simple while also being priced fairly with different machines on the market.
If you have the space and are looking for a machine with a dedicated air compressor, side gluer tank, and dust bin collector, check out the CBP1’s “older brother,” the Coverbind CPB2SG. The Coverbind CPB2SG is for those who want to skip manual cleaning thanks to the dust collector, and an additional safety guard, and who want a more professional bind thanks to the dedicated glue tank.

The Coverbind CBP1 Table-Top perfect binding machine is a wonderful choice for you if you're an on-demand print business or facility that has to bind hundreds of books each hour.
