Dust-free PGO roughener

PGO roughener

Roughener - PGO

The Fastbind Elite XT 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 there is no paper dust! The operator can control the number of PGO passes that need to be made, to ensure a strong 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 1 to 1000 pages. For the best quality, it is also possible to move the paper stopper to one of the three predefined fastening places for ledger, letter or statement standard formats.




Hard Cover Toolkit

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