Steelbind SB136 Thermal Binding Machine

Welcome to New Zealand Binding, in this video we are going introduce Thermal Steelbinding and demonstrate our SB136 machine.

Thermal Steelbinding is our premium binding method. In contrast to conventional comb and wire binding there is no punching required which not only makes binding easier but also produces a smarter and more professional finish to your documents.

The thermal covers consist of a metal spine with a coloured leathergrain texture. The inside of the spine is coated with a glue, that when heated, securely binds the document. Each cover comes with a clear A4 front and back already attached.

We have different colour options available so you can colour co-ordinate the spines with your documents. The covers come in a variety of thicknesses for documents up to 340 sheets of 80 gsm.

To get started with the SB136 ensure the switch on the side of the machine is on.

The glue is already inside the metal spine so take your document and place into the cover ensuring it is level then simply place it onto the heat element of the machine. The element is magnetic and will automatically begin heating upon contact, with no warm time required.

After 2 minutes the machine will beep and the light will turn blue to signal the heating is complete so remove the cover and ensure pages are straight before placing onto the rack for a few minutes to cool.

The great thing about this method is that multiple covers, depending on thickness, can be put on the machine at once to save time.

Thermal Steelbinding is quickly becoming the preferred binding method when looking for a simple but premium way to bind important documents. The modern and professional finish far surpasses comb or wire bound documents and as first impressions count it’s perfect for any sales or marketing materials given externally to customers or potential clients.

Thermal Steelbinding can also be known as Unibind, Winbind, Steel Crystal Binding or VIP hardcover binding.

We can also produce bespoke covers with a custom design so please contact us if you want to know more or have questions regarding compatibility with your existing thermal products.

    Impeccable communication and great customer service! Adrian was extremely helpful and patient with my questions about thermal binding machines and guillotines, making the purchase of one of each of these so easy! My life as an administrator is almost complete! Now to talk to the boss into getting a laminator – and I know where I’ll be getting that from – no one else but NZ Binding !!!!!!!
