The manual Fastbind Elite EVA hot melt binding machine offers the greatest flexibility for any print environment. It quickly produces hard and soft cover books as well as Manager covers, tear-off pads and strip binding with even difficult papers thanks to its rotary roughening unit..
Why buy several binders when all you need is one? Elite is ideal for print or copy shops, publishers, binderies, educational institutions and photographers. The end result is perfect binding that is strong, square and cost-effective. The Elite perfect binder will bind books up to A4/US letter portrait (320 mm / 12.6 inches in length & 235 mm / 9.3 inches in height).
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.
Easy to use
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.
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.
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.
