Efficient and High Quality Production of LayFlat Photo Books with Imaging Solutions fastBook10CF

Press release from the issuing company

Specialized in solutions for the production of photo books, calendars and greeting cards, Imaging Solutions AG developed a new bookbinding machine with LayFlat binding technology. The fastBook10CF is the ideal entry volume book block system for the fully automated photo book production.

Photo book customers more and more are demanding LayFlat binding and premium print quality. In this regard, the fastBook10CF is the perfect machine for minilabs to start with the automatic production of calendars, greeting cards or photo books. And, of course, professional photo laboratories as well as digital printers can expand their services with this new bookbinding system.

Easy and fast production of 100 photo books per day with fastBook10CF 

It is very time-consuming and expensive to produce photo books manually. The new fastBook10CF bookbinding machine from Imaging Solutions significantly reduces the production time which automatically reduces costs. 

In addition to cost savings, the fastBook10CF is easy to operate via a touchscreen menu, saving manpower. With a possible daily output of up to 100 photo books, 250 calendars or 1.000 greeting cards, the fastBook10CF substantially increases production.

Innovative Technology Provides Automated Bookblock Production

The compact fastBook10CF is a fully automatic book block maker which produces LayFlat book blocks from single sheets of photo or digital paper. It automatically feeds single sheets into the machine, creases each one in the middle, folds, presses and then assembles them one by one with purePhoto X-Strong Cleantec Hotmelt glue. 

No additional and expensive adhesive foils are needed, saving even more production costs. Another benefit of the Hotmelt-Technology is rapid availability: this glue hardens extremely fast enabling book blocks to be shipped on the same day that they are produced.

Fitted with the innovative LayFlat-technology - also known as Leporello fold or panoramic binding - the fastBook10CF produces large photo sizes seamless, without curved pages or image loss in the center. The illustrated pictures are fully displayed with a perfect panoramic spread and make an extraordinary impression.

When using the additional integrated cardboard feeder, premium photo prints can be produced by inserting a cardboard between two single sheets. This sandwich-technology provides high-quality calendars and photo books with extraordinary haptics.

The Imaging Solutions fastBook10CF is available immediately. As an entry volume solution, the fastBook10CF book block production system is an interesting option for minilabs. Professional photographic laboratories or digital printing labs can also increase their range of services with this bookbinding machine.
