Fastbind perfect binders offer versatile book binding solutions for hard and soft cover books and presentations from under A6 to A4 or SRA3 (depending on models)

Fastbind provides a large range of perfect hot glue binders satisfying different binding needs from office presentations and traditional paperbacks to more demanding jobs such as hard cover binding or difficult, heavy or coated paper stock with PUR technology.

With all Fastbind glue binding machines, you can produce any book format from miniature to A4 or A3 Portrait and up to 40 mm (1.57") thick, without any size, thickness or format adjustment between jobs: no set-up times, no stops. This hassle-free binding process will not slow your productivity down.

All models of Fastbind binders are silent, dust free and compact. They fit in any work environment, from an office table to a printer's workshop.

The PUREVA binders use either PUR glue or EVA hotmelt glue. They bind the thickest and most difficult materials, such as highly coated stocks, with a revolutionary concept and interchangeable glue cartridges. Choose the Secura for your ordinary paper stocks or opt for a model including Fastbind’s exclusive PGO roughener for a larger range of paper types (Elite, Elite XT).
