    • SteelCrystal covers have a steel spine with clear covers attached to the front and back. These covers allow you to print your own title sheet and help to add protection to your bound documents.
    • SteelMat covers are similar to SteelCrystal supplies but have frost covers attached to the front and back. These frost covers are resistant to scratching and provide an elegant look and feel to your reports. These covers are translucent which allows the printed information on your title page to show through.
    • Steelbook covers offer the ability to bind your own hard cover documents in just minutes. They have a steel spine hidden inside the hard cover case. They provide one of the most elegant options for binding documents using a desktop binding machine.
    • SteelBack spines allow users to use their own covers with their documents and provide a look and feel that is more consistent with perfect binding.

  • The Unibind XU 338 can be used with standard thermal binding covers and or with thermal glue strips. However, these supplies don't use steel in their spines and thus won't activate the machine. The best way to solve this problem is to use a spare Unibind SteelBook hard cover to activate the machine. Simply place the Steel Book cover and your thermal cover onto the machine at the same time.
  • Using this machine for Unibind Binding is extremely fast. The triple heating elements make it possible to bind up to twenty four books in a single binding cycle. You can assemble your next set of documents while the machine is working to help increase productivity.

Weaknesses / Limitations:

  • Like all Unibind systems, the XU-338 is limited in the thickness of books that it can bind. The three heating units on this machine are each 36mm in size. Thus, the largest document that you can bind with this machine is 36mm (1-1/2"). This is the largest binding spine that is available for the Unibind system. Users who want to bind documents larger than 36mm will have to use a different binding style.
  • This system is also limited in the length of documents that it can bind. The XU338 is designed for binding letter sized documents with 11" and 8.5" spines. Unibind spines are not available in any other lengths and they cannot be cut down for custom sizes.
  • Unibind binding provides an excellent and secure bind for your documents. However, documents bound with this style will not lay flat or wrap around. Users who need documents with these features will want to use a traditional punch and bind system for finishing their presentations.

These prices are higher than most punch and bind supplies. However, these supplies also provide a premium look and feel for your documents.
