Unibind Thermal Binding uses a heat-activated adhesive in the spine of a wrap-around cover that adheres to your own custom inner sheets. Unibind covers come pre-folded with the thermal adhesive pre-applied for easy binding; there is no punching or clean up is required. You simply place your loose pages into a thermal binding cover, place the cover into the Unibind Binding Machine and the machine is automatically activated to heat and seal the adhesive to your sheets, creating an attractive finished book in just seconds. Unibind will prove to be the absolute easiest binding method you have ever used! In addition, covers and other supplies are available in a variety of styles and colors to meet your exact needs.
Unibind Binding Machines offer the versatility you need. Choose from three different models: The UniBinder 120 for low-volume, the UniBinder 8.1 for mid-volume use and the UniBinder 8.2 for high-volume use. These Binding Systems let you edit your books without wasting a binding mechanism. Simply re-heat your bound book, replace any sheets necessary, and then move the book to the cooling rack to complete the bind. The Unbind Binding Machines are extremely simple to use: All you do is put your printed sheets into a Unibind Cover and set the cover on the heating rack. The machine automatically activates and an indicator light will turn green in about 90 seconds when the document is ready to be moved to the cooling rack
