ProductDescription

If you want to bind hard cover books occasionally or on a regular basis, you'll need a book crimper you can rely on. This Pro-Bind Hard Cover Book Crimper is a great choice to use with thermal hard cover cases, as it will ensure that your books have the correct spine adjustment. Easy to use, the crimper will add the perfect finishing touch to your binding project, ensuring a professional appearance. Immediately after the binding cycle is complete, place the spine of the book flat on the base towards the back of the crimper, then release the handle and let the book stand for at least 60 seconds or until is completely cool to the touch. Done! For best results, always make sure that the pages are jogged evenly and laid flat on the spine.

We tried to bind hard covers with our thermal binding machine without a crimper. They worked but we had problems with the pages falling out. The bind is solid every time when using the crimper. Plus it adds a nice crease to the spine.

This is the Pro-Bind Hard Cover Crimper!

After completing a hardcover heat cycle in you thermal binding machine, jog the pages down and immediately insert your hard cover into this crimper—of course I’m going to explain why.

As you can see, push on the handle to open the crimper and insert your book.

The crimper is rounded on both ends to create a nice finish on the spine of your book.

You can adjust the back by pulling it out and repositioning it in the other slots.

Now you can crimp up to two inch thick books!

A good portion of hardcovers have three lines of glue. The one in the center holds all your pages in, and the two side ones helps hold the covers together.

If you only had one strip in the center then your binding would open and expose the glued ends, but the side strips help close the spine and support the binding. (The crimper makes sure the book hardens this way).

Here is a finished book, with nicely rounded and crimped ends, and you can see that the glue is hidden and the covers and spine are nicely supported.

This is everything you need to know about thermal binding.

If you are looking for a binding that's quick and simple to make, then thermal binding may be a good option for you.

The one piece cover has a glue strip in it and all you have to do is place your pages in.

Depending on the size of your books and the machine, you can bind multiple books at the same time. You can find different size hard covers to carry up to 500 sheets and soft covers up to 100.

Your pages should closely fit the size of your binding, otherwise you might find yourself with awkward gaps.

There are different colors and customizations available for your thermal binding covers.

Using a standalone glue strip works within the same binding machines. Cut it to length to repair worn book spines or make your own covers.

As you can see, this is a permanent solution. There's no easy way to edit your books once it's complete. And that is thermal binding

ProBind Thermal Hard Cover Crimper Hard Case Crimping Machine Review

Overview:

  • The Pro-Bind Thermal Hardcover crimper replaces the now discontinued Bindit hard cover crimper.
  • It is used to help finish thermal hard cover cases that are bound with your thermal binding machine.
  • The Pro-Bind thermal hard cover crimper is used as a cooling rack for your hard cover cases and as a finishing device to ensure that every book has a uniform look and feel.

Features/ Strengths:

  • The Pro-Bind thermal hard cover crimper helps to ensure the strongest possible bind for your thermal hard cover documents. The crimper takes the hard cover document and forces the hot glue inside the spine up into the base of the pages. This helps to ensure that every page comes into contact with the glue and ensures that pages will not work themselves out the bind. Without the crimper, some pages may not come into contact with the thermal glue and thus may come out of the book.
  • The thermal hardcover crimper also helps to shape the spine of the book. The crimper uses two cylindrical rods to shape the spine of the book so that it has the appearance of a professional case bound book. This helps to provide a uniform look to all your hard cover case bound documents.
  • The Thermal hardcover crimper also acts as a cooling rack for the document. You place the document into the crimper while the glue is still hot. The crimper forces the glue up into the base of the pages and shapes the spine. The book sits inside the crimper until the glue hardens and the book is permanently shaped.

Limitations/Weaknesses:

  • Although the Pro-bind crimper does an excellent job in crimping documents, it can only crimp one document at a time. This essentially limits the productivity of the Pro-Bind hard cover crimper to one book per minute. For some applications this is adequate. However, for high volume applications one book per minute is extremely slow. In these cases, a second hard cover crimper can be used to double productivity.
  • While the Pro-Bind thermal hard cover crimper will help to strengthen the bind of most thermal hard cover cases, some glossy coated papers and thick stocks still have a tendency to fall out of thermal hard cover cases. For these papers, it is an excellent idea to place a couple of staples as close to the binding edge of the book block as possible. The staples will never be seen by the end users and will help to ensure that no page ever falls out of the document.

Recommendation:

  • If you are considering binding hard cover cases with your thermal binding machine the Pro-bind hardcover crimper is a necessity. It is currently the only hard cover crimper available on the market.
  • If you attempt to bind thermal hardcover cases without a hard cover crimper, the pages of your document may fall out or the look of your hard cover document may not be as consistent or professional as is possible.

Questions & Answers
Q:
Do you need a crimper to bind all hard cover books?
Asked by Kenzie K. 4 months ago
A:
If you are binding with thermal hard cover cases you should really use a hard cover crimper. The crimper will ensure the proper bind, shape the spine for a professional look and allow the glue and book to cool properly. The hard cover crimper is not required for Coverbind Hard Covers, Fastback Hard Covers or Velobind hard covers though.
