Fastback

Fastback® Document Binding Systems

In terms of machine longevity, quality of the bind, document versatility, ease of use, bind speed and cost, you simply won’t find better machines than the revolutionary Fastback® document binders manufactured by Powis Parker.

Whether you’re binding tape books, perfectbound books, hardcovers, photobooks or inkjet-printable Image Strips, these machines will provide consistent, high quality results with their patented thermal adhesive strip technology. The Model 9 and Model 20 are available new out of the box and the Model 11 and Model 15xs, while still excellent machines, are only available refurbished as they are no longer being manufactured.

Powis Fastback® Model 20 Tape Binding Machine

The Fastback Model 20 tape binder is the latest document binding machine manufactured by Powis Parker, perfecting various elements of its predecessor, the Model 15xs, making it the fastest, strongest and most versatile automated tape binder on the market.

In terms of productivity, the Model 20 will produce beautiful tape bound books in 12 seconds flat–a full 10 seconds faster than the Model 15xs and 3.5 times faster than traditional binding solutions such as comb, wire or coil. In addition to regular tape binding, the Model 20 quickly binds Image Strips, hardcovers, softcovers between 8.5″ and 12″ in length and features a low-temperature cycle that allows for binding delicate coverstock such as laser-printed sheets. Binds documents up to 1.5 inches wide.

Powis Fastback® Model 9 Tape Binding Machine

The Fastback® Model 9 tape binder is a highly affordable compact binding machine that binds documents up to 250 pages (or 1″ thick) in less than a minute.

Though the strip feeding process is not automated as with the Fastback® Model 11 and Fastback® Model 15, there’s no warm up time, no punching pages, no stacking and re-stacking sheets and no mess. The Model 9 binds tape bound softcovers, custom Image Strips documents and hardcover books in 8.5″, 11″, A4 and A5 lengths.
