ProductDescription

The versatile Fastback 9 is the most compact and affordable binding machine that Powis makes. Its desktop footprint (13"x19.5") is small enough to fit the most cramped conditions. The Fastback 9 handles both tape binding and hardcover book binding and is a great choice for the small office/home office (SOHO). It's also suitable for companies that do not have a central copy shop, and require that each department handle its own binding. In spite of its size and price point, the Fastback 9 is a powerful machine that can produce finished binding 3.5 times faster than traditional punch-and-bind systems. It binds from 10 to 250 sheets and is perfect for short-run and occasional jobs. Use the Fastback 9 with our Lx-Strip binding strips, and the Halfback covers, as well as most other Powis covers, including the Bindercovers. Their distinctive design is perfect for creating the ultimate in professional-looking reports. If you'd like to customize your covers with foil printing, add the Foilfast printer. It prints up to 7 foil colors in minutes. The Fastback Model 9 is now available to our customers nationwide.

This is the Fastback 9 a Thermal Tape Binding Machine!

First take your back cover. Then take your printed project and add the front cover to top it all off.

Place the project into the machine without a binding strip and push the green button. The machine knows there is no binding, so it tells you what size you will need.

There are only two sizes of binding for projects up to 250 pages, which makes things easy. There is a separation within the glue, and a crease there—fold this along the entire strip.

Then take the strip and place it in the machine with the smaller end sticking up and against the back of the machine. It should be situated to the right edge as well.

Then take your project and flip the front to face away from you. Place it onto the binding strip, situated to the right, and get all the pages properly in place. How you see it now is how it will bind. Ok, it looks good, so now push the green button to bind.

It only takes 20 seconds to run through the binding cycle. When done, place the project in the cooling rack. This is important so the pages don’t move any more while the glue hardens.

Since the binding is flexible, it actually lays fairly flat, which means you don’t have to hold it open, and it works well with photo copying.

There are a lot of benefits to the Fastback 9, like how you can use your own customized covers instead of plain thermal covers, and the machine makes very little noise. You can also use image strips, which you can print your own design on the binding—there is also no warm up time, which means you are in and out. It also binds thermal hard covers and the firmware is updatable for potential future improvements.

Fastback 9 Binding Machine Review

Fastback thermal binding is one of the most elegant ways to bind your documents and it just got a whole lot easier and affordable thanks to Powis Parker’s new Fastback 9 binding machine. With the Fastback 9, you can quickly create beautiful reports, proposals, and other documents that look and feel like real books. You can find out more about this great machine by continuing to read this article, so sit back, relax, and read on.

The Fastback 9 was designed to be powerful, convenient, and affordable. Well, affordable for a Fastback machine, that is. Fastback binding machines are definitely not the cheapest products on the market. For example, the Fastback 15xs can be yours for just over $6,000.00. (You have that amount under your mattress, right?) However, that machine is made for high-volume operations, whereas the Fastback 9 is meant for everyday offices and thus, is slightly more affordable. It retails for just over $2,000.00 and while that’s still a lot of dough, you really do get a lot for the price.

The Fastback 9 can perform both tape and hardcover book binding and it utilizes the fabulous variety of Fastback binding strips. It can bind documents up to 250 pages long and it does so quickly, within 30 to 45 seconds, so this is a great machine for companies that need to quickly bind bookstore-quality hardcover books. (In fact, this machine can bind your documents up to 3.5 times faster than a typical punch-and-bind machine.)

The Fastback 9 can handle strips that are 8.5″, 11″ and 11.7″(A4 Size) in length. It can also be used with two different strip widths: narrow and medium. You can use also Powis Parker’s L-Strips and Lx-Strips, as well as their Halfback covers and Bindercovers. And if you really want to get creative, you can use the company’s brand new ImageStrips. They’ll give your books an eye-catching, contemporary look. If you have Fastback’s Foilfast printer, you can definitely incorporate it into your binding. For those of you who don’t know what a Foilfast printer is, it’s a printer that can give your books a glamorous look by adding foil elements to your binding covers. (The Foilfast can print up to seven different colors.) And if you’d like to bind books that contain glossy paper, you can use the Fastback 9 along with Powis Parker’s Studio Photobook system to express yourself.

Combine those capabilities with all of the other binding elements available from Powis Parker and creatively speaking, the sky’s the limit when it comes to using the Fastback 9. It makes sense that the Fastback 9 can produce such gorgeous books considering the machine itself is very attractive. It has a purple and gray exterior, and it’s small enough to fit on any desk so finding a place to put the machine shouldn’t be a problem. You’ll also be able to get binding immediately with the Fastback 9 because it doesn’t need to warm up. You’ll save time and get great-looking books with this machine.

How cool, huh? Thermal binding has never been easier or more striking than with the Fastback 9 binding machine. Consider getting one for your home or office so you can produce books that everyone will love.
