This multipurpose machine handles tape binding, perfect binding and hardcover book binding. It can create anything from a simple report, to a 350-sheet hardback book.
Fast, and virtually maintenance free, the Fastback® 15xs is the ideal machine for any print shop, copy shop, professional bindery, or office that needs a full-featured binding solution at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods.
It is compatible with nearly all of the Powis binding materials, from the Super Strip™ to the Composition (leather-like) covers to the Perfectback® strips for binding paperback books.
Innovative design features improve productivity. The Fastback 15xs identifies which binding strip is being used and automatically adjusts the settings. The document cooling rack can sit as a stand-alone unit, or, when space is at a premium, can be mounted atop the machine itself. And the Teflon-coated heating platens makes maintenance a breeze.
For even greater aesthetic impact, you can combine the Fastback® 15xs with the Foilfast® Printer or the PowisPrinter, allowing you to print covers and spines in up to 7 foil colors.
