Elite: Hard Cover Book

With the Fastbind Elite, it is easier than ever to bind hard cover books.

Just insert your cover. Block it. Insert the content between endpapers. Turn and apply the glue to the spine. Turn back and release the book. Apply pressure to form the groove on both sides. Your book is ready.

This is the perfect solution for on-demand and personalised books.

  • No adjustments between sizes from matchbox up to A4+.
  • No adjustments for thickness, up to 50 mm or 1.97 in
  • The only supplies needed are the endpapers.


Easy and safe glue application

Easy to use

Dust-free PGO roughener

PGO roughener

Roughener - PGO

The Fastbind Elite features the exclusive Paper Grain Opening (PGO) system. Unlike other spine rougheners that grind the spine creating lots of noise and dust, the PGO opens the paper grain with very little noise and no paper dust! The operator can control the number of PGO passes to ensure a solid bind.

Easy to use

Easier to learn than an office copier! Anyone can be making professional quality books and reports in minutes. It self adjusts for book thickness from 2 to 400 pages.




Cover Trimmer

The optional cover trimmer eliminates the need to measure and set-up a cumbersome guillotine trimmer. Slip the cover excess into the slot, rest the book block on the rail and then pull the rotary handle across the book for a perfect trim.

Hard Cover Toolkit

The optional hardcover toolkit consists of a nipping bar and a special paper guide. The special shape of the bar gives a professional look to the finished book.
