A UNIQUE zero make-ready,

Double-Fan Adhesive Binder

"Cut your staff, bind ANY SIZE book, improve quality and profit-a dream realized."


The ULTRABIND 2 is the world's only zero-make-ready Double-Fan Adhesive Binder for book blocks to be case bound. This amazing machine, will bind books from 3-1/2" thick to as thin as a single page, from 16" tall to 4" short, from 3" narrow to 15" wide, one after another in random sequence, fully automated. One operator feeds books into the loading station and another catches and stacks finished books on this 6 station, in-line machine. You have to see it to believe it. Virtually no operator training is needed to run this robotic marvel.

While other machines can bind a book, the ULTRABINDT 2 is the ONLY machine in the world that is truly zero make-ready and the ONLY machine that can bind challenging books with heavy coated paper, mixed stock, random size, and tumble-tested strength  [more]

It has now been enhanced for use in the photo book manufacturing market where it is resonating well and where folded photo prints must be fully compressed for proper processing by the automatic photo book binding machines.

Remanufactured machines should not be confused with rebuilt or reconditioned machines.   Remanufacturing not only involves bringing the unit back to original specifications, but also involves updating and modifying the machine to make it equal to a similar unit manufactured today.  The result is a like-new machine carrying our standard one-year new-machine warranty.
