If you need an inexpensive and compact thermal binding machine that will provide professional results, look no further than the new Pro-Bind 1000 system. Smaller and more lightweight than the Pro-Bind 2000, this version still packs a punch! You can use it to bind more than one book at a time and even to bind hard cover books if you run them through two binding cycles and use a hard cover crimper. Made with a one inch binding throat, this machine is perfect for light duty binding and comes with a wide range of convenient features, including visual and audible signals, a fast 3 minute warm up time, a cooling rack, and an energy-efficient standby feature. The Pro-Bind is ideal for home businesses, smaller offices, or self publishing applications and comes with a substantial 1-year warranty.

This is the Pro-Bind 1000 Thermal Binding Machine!

Now with thermal binding you can create you own custom soft or hardcovers or use plain standard ones.

Now, open your thermal binding cover.  Observe the glue strip in the center—you always want your pages within the width of this.  You can see it easier on this hardcover. Make sure your pages do not exceed past this width.

But it’s a simple as jogging your pages evenly together and inserting them against the glue strip. Close the book up, jog the pages again, and while holding the pages still insert the spine of your book into the machine.

On the front, push the appropriate button—in this case I am making a soft cover book.  It takes about a minute, and the machine will notify you when to remove the book.  Jog the pages down again to make sure the pages settle nicely in the glue.

It’s actually important that you place the book in the cooling rack until the glue hardens.  This way you know the pages are always secured well.

A nice thing about thermal binding is that you can bind several books at a time, depending on your size of books.

The Pro-Bind 1000 can also bind together hardcover books up to 3\4 inch thick.

Again, jog your pages evenly, align your pages against the glue, then ensure the pages are even when the book is closed.

Insert the book with the spine down and push the “hard cover” button.  This takes twice as long as soft covers.

Now, for best results—and it is highly recommended for hardcovers—immediately after taking your book out of the machine, place it into a hard cover crimper until the glue cools.

This way the pages are pressed together evenly and tightly within the covers.

If you are looking for a very professional and well finished look for you books, then customizing a thermal cover may be exactly what you are looking for.

Pro-Bind 1000 Professional Thermal Binding Machine Review

Thermal binding is one of the fastest and easiest binding methods, so it's great for beginners and people who need to produce professional-looking documents in a flash. A good entry-level machine is the Pro-Bind 1000, an affordable device that's made in the good old U.S.A. Here's what you need to know about its pros and cons.

The pros:

  • This thermal binding system is capable of binding both hardback and softcover books. It can bind books up to 3/4" thick containing between 115 and 150 pages.

  • One of the great things about thermal binders is that they both warm up and bind quickly. This device will warm up in about three minutes and it can completely bind a softcover document in 30 seconds. Hardcovers take a bit longer: about 60 seconds. You'll know the machine is ready to use because a light will go on and the machine will emit a beep.

  • The 1000's throat is 12 inches long so it's perfect for finishing off letter-sized documents. The throat is 1-1/4" wide, enabling you to bind more than one book at a time, which will increase your productivity.

  • To help you save on your electric bill, the 1000 has a standby mode that conserves power.

  • Each unit has a built-in cooling rack. It's located on the back of the machine for easy access.

  • The 1000 is small enough to be stored on top of a desk. Its dimensions are 15.5" (width) x 8-7/8" (depth) x 4-1/4" (height). This lightweight machine only weighs four pounds so if you need to move it to a new location, it won't be a total pain.

  • This product comes with a one-year warranty and it's reasonably priced. This means you get to enjoy the look of thermal binding without having to spend a large amount of cash.

  • Finally, these devices are made in the United States of America, so when you buy one, you're supporting the American economy.

And now for the cons:

  • The binding capacity won't be large enough for some users. If you desire a device with a larger capacity, you should look at the Pro-Bind 2000 which can bind documents that are up to 400 pages long.

  • After you bind a hardcover book, you have to crimp it with the Pro-Bind Hardback Cover Crimper. This item is sold separately.

  • You won't be able to bind books that are more than 12 inches tall. If you need to bind taller documents, another method should be used, such as plastic comb binding.

In a nutshell, the Pro-Bind 1000 is a good machine to get if you've never used a thermal binder before. It offers fast and easy operation, plus it will help you create great-looking documents. It's also ideal for low-volume applications and offices that need an affordable binding system. Plus, it's American-made, so you'll be supporting American workers if you purchase one. So get one today and experience all the pros that Pro-Bind has to offer you.

Q:
Can I use this machine to bind hard covers?
Asked by R. Moore 3 months ago
A:
Yes you can bind hard covers with the Probind 1000. Just make sure you choose the hard cover setting on the front of the machine. That button will adjust the temperature of the binding cycle so that it gets hotter to melt the glue inside the hard cover case. However, it is recommended that you use a hard cover crimper if binding thermal hard covers. You can find the hard cover crimper on our site Here.

Q:
Can I bind more than one document at a time?
Asked by W. Wilson 3 months ago
A:
Yes you can bind multiple covers at a time with this machine. Just place them all in the throat of the machine at once and they will bind in a single cycle. The maximum thickness of the documents combined is 1 inch so you can do four 1/4" documents or eight 1/8" documents.

Q:
Can i make my own covers to use with this machine?
Asked by Direck C. 4 months ago
A:
You can make your own covers to use with thermal binding systems. They would need to be a full wrap around cover as a single piece. You would then use a glue strip ( product # BIADSTRIP11 ) in the spine of you custom made cover to bind the pages.

Q:
How strong of a bind can i expect from this machine ?
Asked by Brittany J. 4 months ago
A:
The thermal binding process gives a solid bind. You will have best results when binding non glossy stock. The glue used in the thermal binding can have issues adhering to coated or glossy paper.

Answered by MyBinding.com 4 months ago
Q:
We have custom covers-Can I this machine with our 2 piece covers?
Asked by Joe M. 4 months ago
A:
If you are using 2 piece cover sets (a back and a front) this machine is NOT for you. Thermal binding machines require a single piece cover that has glue in the spine to work. If you are looking for a thermal bind and want to use your own front and back cover you really need to consider Fastback tape binding.
