This is the Powis Parker Fastback 20—a thermal tape binding machine—oh but it’s so much more!

Through a simple interface, the machine walks you through the process….Insert you project into the machine and it will tell you what sized binding you will need.

The fastback 20’s primary use is with these super strips, they slide into the right of the machine in which the machine then knows what kind of strip you put in—the glue is creative made as a type of barcode.

Once your project is complete, set it in the cooling rack for a short time and it’s complete.

It can bind up to 350 sheets using the widest super strip.

What’s even better is that maintaining the machine is easy. With easy access to the inside you can clean the thermal unit, clear a stuck strip, and you can even update the firmware of the machine so it’s always keeping up with industry standards.

Of course, it does more than a simple soft cover book. Using other Powis products you can achieve hard cover books, perfect binding, make your own notepads…and more. You can even print your own super strips!

Bind any type of project has never been easier, than with the Fastback 20.

Powis Parker Fastback 20 Product Review

Powis Parker makes some of the most innovative tape binding machines available and one of their best is the brand new Fastback 20. This is an extremely versatile device that can be used in a variety of different workplaces (offices, schools, print shops, etc.) and it's packed with special features. It also happens to be compatible with environmentally friendly binding supplies, so you don't need to feel guilty about binding your documents with it. Continue reading so you can check out the Fastback 20's strengths (and weaknesses) and determine if it's the right device for your binding needs.

The machine's strengths:

  • The Fastback 20 can be used to bind documents of varying sizes and thicknesses. Your document can contain from 10 to 350 pages and narrow, medium, and wide Fastback strips are compatible with this device. Also, the documents can be from 6" to 12" long, so it's really easy to bind letter- and A4-sized work.

  • This is definitely the Fastback machine to use when you're in a hurry. The device only takes 3 minutes to warm up and it can bind a document in 20 seconds or less. This is almost four times faster than using a traditional punch-and-bind device.

  • It's possible to edit documents that have been bound with the Fastback 20. This way, you don't need to totally do things over again if you need to make any changes to your work.

  • The paper supplies used with this machine are environmentally friendly and recyclable so you can reduce your company's carbon footprint.

  • Using this machine is easy because it has a graphical user interface. If you're new to binding, you'll be a pro at it in no time. And if you're already familiar with binding, you'll be pleased to know that this machine is compatible with the FoilFast and Powis printers. Plus, the Fastback 20 has a convenient SD card slot for firmware and software updates in the field.

  • The Fastback 20 is beautifully designed and it will look great in all kinds of workplaces. It comes with a one-year warranty.

  • The Fastback 20 is compatible with Powis Parker Image strips allowing you to create a fully customized look to your bound documents and reports. Using an image strip allows you to brand the spine of your document and to create the impression you desire with your prospective customers and clients.

And its few weaknesses:

  • The Fastback 20 is fairly large with dimensions of 23.5" (width) x 9" (height) x 23" (depth). You'll need a fair amount of space for it, so it might not be the best choice for smaller work areas such as cubicles.

  • Also, this machine is heavy and weighs in at 59 pounds. Be sure to exercise caution when moving it. (Better yet, pick a good spot for it and don't move it unless you absolutely need to.)

  • Unlike its predecessor the Fastback 15xs, the model 20 does not handle legal sized documents. If you need to bind documents longer that 11.7" (A4), this machine probably isn't for you.

Recommendation:

The Fastback 20 is one of the best tape binding machines on the market and it's definitely the star of Powis Parker's already impressive lineup of document finishing devices. This machine is fast, versatile, and it works with environmentally friendly products. It's also easy to use so anyone needing to bind a document can do so without any trouble. The only thing that could be problematic is this machine's size. However, if you have enough space for it, you're going to love it. Check out the Fastback 20 today!
