Elite - PGO RoughenerRoughener - PGO
Fastbind Elite features the exclusive Paper Grain Opening (“PGO”) system. Unlike other spine rougheners that grind the spine creating lots of noise and dust, the PGO opens the paper grain with very little noise and there is no paper dust! The operator can control the number of PGO passes that need to be made to ensure a solid bind.


Easy to use
It’s easier to learn than an office copier! Anyone can be making professional quality books and reports in minutes. There are no set-up times or book format adjustments. It self adjusts for book thickness from 2 to 400 pages.
