The Hard Cover Crimper makes the perfect finish to Hard Bound Books. This cover crimper is needed for hardcover binding to give your hardcover books the correct spine adjustment. It's easy to make your own book cover, just put the "cooked" book from the Covermate into the jaws of this crimper, and turn the handle. Let your book cool for a minute or two and it's done: A Perfectly bound Hard Cover Book.
The Crimper securely locks in your sheets, making your book tight and crisp. There are beveled channels that "pinch" and form the glue at the binding indentations at the left side of the booklet.
The new Pro-Bind Crimper has been completely re-engineered; this new model has actually been reverse engineered by having the throat rest in closed position. We're utilizing a gas shock that when the handle is pulled down, it will open the throat of the crimper and you can drop your book into the crimper for hardcover binding. By releasing the handle, the gas cylinder extends 40 PSI of pressure and will close along the edge of the spine of your hardcover producing the perfect bound hard cover book.
