Speed

It takes only about 60 seconds to bind one or several documents on a Bindomatic thermal binding system, regardless of the thickness of the document! In contrast, a 'punch-bound' document must first be punched in sections small enough to fit into the punch machine, then manually fed onto a plastic or wire comb. The thicker the document, the more time it takes to bind. In addition, thermal binding allows several documents to be bound simultaneously, thereby making a dramatic saving in staff time and cost. Again in contrast, punch-binding is a labour intensive operation where each document has to be bound individually, thereby dramatically increasing staff time and cost. 

 
     
  A simple example of this would be a binding exercise involving 12 documents of 30 pages each. With a punch-binding time estimated at 2.5 minutes per document, the time saving would be as follows:   
     
  Punch-binding
12 documents x 2.5 minutes/document = 30 minutes total binding time
 
     
  Bindomatic
12 documents bound simultaneously = 1 minute total binding time

If this were a daily exercise, the savings over 12 months would be 7,540 minutes or 125 hours.
