In a single machine it combines the four processes of stitching, folding, spine forming and trimming to produce SquareBack™ books up to 224 pages thick. It features fully automatic settings for different book size and pagination, including variable stitch-leg length for varying book thickness.
With an ever increasing demand for high quality booklets on a wider range of media the PowerSquare™ 224 and 224VF will deliver booklets produced with the unique SquareBack™ finish to the spine. The proven SquareBack™ process produces a superior quality finish. The automatic set thickness sensing ensures optimum book quality to deliver professionally finished booklets for you and your customer.
SquareBack™ books can carry print on the spine, just like a perfect bound book and are much easier to handle, stack and pack.
The PowerSquare™ 224 and 224VF can produce a wide range of formats including A6, A5, and A4. Booklets of up to 224 pages of 70gsm, or up to a thickness of 10.4mm can easily be produced, replacing the need for perfect binding of many publications.
The PowerSquare™ 224 has a single stitch head which inserts one to six stitches in the spine of the book. The stitch head and clincher are static, the sheets move to the stitch, not vice versa. This means the stitch head and clincher never have to be moved, so alignment and stitch quality is consistently good.
Up to 6 staples can be applied to one set for 2-up or 3-up production, It also features fully automatic settings for different book size and pagination, including variable stitch-leg length for varying book thickness.
