I have been using binding machines for a long time. I find them really helpful and functional. I use them mainly for filing documents and for preparing presentations with good, impressive covers. Many successful deals have been closed by our business with the help of binding machines.
The very first type of binding machine I used was the spiral binding machine. It was easy to use and produced good results, but I had a difficult time when it came to removing and adding pages. With a spiral binder, editing is simply not allowed. When I told my boss about this, he asked me to look for a binding machine that can also be used for removing and adding pages.
I discovered the thermal binding machine through a friend. I visited her at home one weekend and she took me inside her home office. I saw the machine there but did not really take notice of it, until she started using it. I told her about my dilemma with the binding machine in the office and she recommended me to try the thermal variation. To cut the long story short, my boss commissioned me to buy one and I am now using it.
Removing and adding pages in a thermal binding machine is a four-step process; but it is an easy one. First, you need to put the document that you bounded back into the machine. Press start and wait for the cycle to be completed. Then hold the page or pages that you want to delete. Be sure that the document is still in the binder. Slowly, use one hand to pull out the pages, while your other hand firmly holds the binding cover.
When adding pages, position them properly where you want them in the document then hold both sides of the paper. Move the pages into the cover by shaking them to and fro. Stop doing so only when you are sure that the pages fit exactly into the spine. Be sure, too, that the pages are evenly arranged. After this, you are ready to remove the document from the binder. Remember to let it cool for several minutes before going through it.
Now that I have the thermal binding machine with me, work has become easier. My efficiency and productivity levels have also improved and my boss is only too happy about it!
