In addition, we have implemented recycling programs at both our Belgium and U.S. operations.”

Designed by Unibind’s team of engineers at corporate headquarters in Belgium, the Unibind BCC10 automated binding machine is made for high-capacity production facilities and large photo labs. Built to order to satisfy the fast-growing demand of the photo book market, the BCC10 provides an astounding capacity of 400 books per hour for the most demanding photo album requirements.The ProBook photo album machine allows small to mid-sized photo labs to create professionally-bound photo albums for weddings, vacations, graduations, and travel with sizes as large as 9x12in in both portrait and landscape formats.
