Saddle Point Systems 1 Year Local WarrantySaddle Point Systems 1 Year Local WarrantyThe Fastback® Model 20 is the latest thermal tape binding machine manufactured by Powis Parker, incorporating a number of exciting new features that set a new standard for the document binding industry. In terms of productivity, the Model 20 will produce beautiful tape bound books in 12 seconds flat--10 seconds faster than its predecessor, the Model 15xs, nearly four times faster than traditional binding solutions such as comb, wire or coil. With regard to craftsmanship, Powis Parker's FB Model 20 is by far the most sophisticated document binder on the market, with easily upgradeable firmware for the latest technical updates as well multiple boot modes allowing you to transition from lightning quick bind cycles for normal bookbinding to low-temperature bind cycles for binding delicate materials such as laser-printed coverstock.

The Model 20 comes with a LCD display that guides the user through each binding process, automatic strip feeding technology that utilizes two precision heaters to optimize each bind cycle for maximum binding strength, only three minutes of warm-up time and, on average, energy usage that's 75% more efficient than the Fastback® Model 15xs. Additionally, with the Model 20's ability to work with all Powis Parker binding materials, including the new fully customizable Image Strips, you can easily transition between binding tape bound reports, hardcover books and perfect bound books in seconds.

We want you completely satisfied with your purchase, which is why we include our Saddle Point Systems One Year Local Warranty for all Bay Area customers. Call us toll free at 855-880-7500 to set up a free demonstration of the Fastback® Model 20 at your place of business.
