World's first 18" x 18" photo book system at photokina

Press release from the issuing company

Professional lay flat photo books and classy photo albums in breathtaking formats up to 18" x 18" provides the new fastBook Professional book block system, a 100 % Swiss Made solution for the printing and photo industry by Imaging Solutions AG.  

The photo book experts from Imaging Solutions AG in Switzerland (ISAG) are continuously developing innovative production systems, offering exceptional business opportunities to the printing and photo industry.

Swiss engineering and quality, combined with an in-depth know-how of the varying and changing market demands, are the guarantors that distinguishes Imaging Solutions as a pioneer among the leading finishing equipment suppliers. 

The latest development by ISAG is the new fastBook Professional bookbinding system for large format photo books, up to 18" x 18". 

State-of-the-art book block system for XXL photo books

The fastBook Professional will enable print service providers to produce LayFlat photo books in XXL format up to 18" x 18" (457 x 457 mm) at breathtaking speed. The high-performance system has been designed for 24-hour production, 7 days/week. 

fastBook Professional is a 4-in-1 solution, providing all necessary work steps at the touch of a button: creasing, folding, pressing and gluing. 

Thanks to the integrated hot melt gluing technology, production costs can be dramatically reduced as only a minimum of glue per square meter is required. 

No drying or storage time is necessary, and the photo products can be shipped on the day of manufacturing. An adjustable fold pressing shapes the complete book block, thus providing highest professional photo book quality to consumers. 

With the new fastBook unit, Imaging Solutions responds to the increasing demands for luxury photo products, for example wedding albums. 

This innovative system for high-end photo book manufacturing complements the Imaging Solutions product portfolio, including the entry level machine fastBook Basic and the industrial high-capacity series fastBlock.
