Coverbind CPB2SG Perfect Binder Staff Review
The Coverbind CPB2SG Perfect Binder is a premium binding machine that sits at the top of my favorites list. It really gets the binding process done quickly and easily. It is not only one of the most affordable options in it's class, but it is inexpensive to operate for both short runs and large jobs.
The Best Things About the Coverbind CPB2SG Perfect Binder
Unlike some other perfect binding machines, the Coverbind perfect bind system is incredibly straightforward and doesn't have that ominous air about it that makes it seem unapproachable. While binding both thin and thick books it works efficiently and creates an exceptionally strong, straight, and quality bind. This means that it could be a great fit for both large print facilities and small print shops alike. With a speed of up to 360 books per hour, the Coverbind CPB2SG can handle nearly any volume workload.
The Coverbind CPB2SG Perfect Binder is mounted on a stand, which is on casters, as well as a safety cover which will stop the operation of the machine when lifted. More importantly, it includes a vacuum waste removal system, which allows for the use of even heavier duty notching pins, which prepare the spine for gluing. Another great feature is the thorough glue coverage. This is achieved with the glue metering roller, two spine application rollers, and side gluing rollers that ensure the strongest bind and complete glue coverage for a perfect binding machine.
- Pneumatic clamping & nipping that automatically adjusts to your book thickness
- Easy to use LCD display and control panel
- Powerful production capabilities of up to 360 books per hour
- Heavy duty notching pins for deeper milling
- An air compressor & vacuum waste removal is built into the stand
The Things You Should Consider Before Buying the Coverbind CPB2SG Perfect Binder
The Coverbind CPB2SG Perfect Binder is a robust binding machine that can handle many different types of books. However, one of the points to note is that this binding machine does not have the built-in space-saving of other tabletop binders. It comes with its own stand, which houses the vacuum collection system and compressor. This is on casters, making it easy to move around and out of the way. However, since it isn’t a tabletop version, it may not be ideal for smaller print shops with limited floor space available.
The Bottom Line — Is the CPB2SG Perfect Binder a Good Buy?
Overall, the Coverbind CPB2SG Perfect Binder is a great option for binding needs that range from minimal to extensive. The ability to bind small, medium and larger sizes gives this binding machine the flexibility that major plants and on-demand print shops need. Due to its size, smaller print shops may do well with the "little brother" system, the Coverbind CPB1 tabletop perfect binder system. However, if your print shop can accommodate the size, I recommend this perfect binder because it has many features that will make the binding process simple and hassle-free while also being priced competitively with less-powerful machines on the market.
