Create paper back books, magazines, programs, and more! This single-clamp, hot-melt perfect binder and padding machine produces professional quality books.

To operate, place a book in the clamp and the Digibinder automatically adjusts for book thickness clamping it tightly.  Place a book cover on the left side cover table.  Press the start button and the book passes over the roughing/notching saw blade and then the twin glue rollers which apply an even amount of glue to the spine of the book as it moves to the cover station.  Once the book is aligned over the cover, the cover is pressed against the glued edge and squeezed around the book.  The clamp will time out releasing the book and return to the loading station.

Great for catalogs, fiction/non-fiction books, travel guides, instruction booklets, product guides, marketing material, ticket books, coupon books, customized notepads, and more! Now you can offer your customers quick, short run, professionally bound books and personalized notepads at a competitive price.
