The Fastback® Model 15, manufactured by binding experts Powis Parker, is one of our best selling document binders, renowned for its durability, ease of use, speed and versatility. The automatic strip feeding technology allows you to tape bind documents up to 14 inches in length and 1.5 inches in width (350 sheets) in approximately 20 seconds, more than three times faster than traditional punch-and-bind systems. The process is incredibly simple: jog the pages of your book, insert them into the binder, press the Bind button, insert the strip, remove the bound book and you're done! Besides tape bound books, the Model 15 can also produce beautiful hard cover books using the Hardcover Assembly Guide to perfectly align and insert your tape-bound book blocks.

For an extra $500, you can purchase an upgraded Fastback® Model 15s with smart sensor technology which allows you to bind beautiful softcover books in addition to the tape and hardcover books the standard Model 15 can bind. The perfect binding strips require a different bind cycle than the Super Strips and, with the Model 15s' ability to read the barcodes on each strip, the machine can differentiate between Temperature Activated, Pressure Sensitive and Layflat strips and change the bind cycle accordingly to ensure maximum bind strength of your softcover books.

With some of our customers' machines exceeding 100,000 binds and more than a decade of use, we know this reliable equipment is built to last. Because the Model 15 is no longer in production, all of our Fastback® Model 15 Document Binders are refurbished machines that have passed our technician's rigorous inspection with flying colors. 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 15 at your place of business.

Our San Francisco Bay Area customers can extend thei+ r service coverage to two years by purchasing our Saddle Point Systems Extended Performance Guarantee for their Fastback® Model 15 for $450. In other words, you're paying for a one year service agreement and getting two years of complete coverage. Like our One Year SPS Warranty, our performance guarantee covers the cost of all parts, labor, travel time, on-site repair and, if requested, an annual preventative maintenance check to ensure your Fastback® is running optimally. Simply give us a call and one of our technicians will come to your company, usually by the next business day, and service your machine at no additional charge. If we can't fix your Fastback® Model 15 on site, we'll leave you a loaner to keep you up and running while we're repairing your machine. 

After purchasing the Extended Annual Performance Guarantee, we'll e-mail you our Fastback® Model 15 Service Agreement PDF (within one business day) for you to fill out. Then, either fax or e-mail us a signed copy or mail us a signed hard copy to put the agreement in force. Annual service agreements must be purchased within 30 days of the original invoice date of your Fastback® Model 15 and are not valid unless signed and on file with us.
