PowerSquare 224

The Watkiss PowerSquareTM 224 is a unique and innovative complete book making system for digital and offset print applications. It enables you to produce SquareBack books up to 224 pages - perfect for high paginations or heavier paper stocks. SquareBack books can carry print on the spine, just like a perfect bound book. They are easy to handle, stack and pack.

In a single machine it combines the four processes of stitching, folding, spine forming and trimming to produce SquareBack books up to 224 pages thick. It features fully automatic settings for different book size and pagination, including variable stitch-leg length for varying book thickness.

The maximum book thickness, of 0.41" (208 pages 21lb bond, 224 pages 20lb bond), is double that of alternative conventional booklet making machines, so it is ideally suited to higher paginations or to thicker stocks. This makes the Watkiss PowerSquareTM 224 a fast and cost-effective alternative to perfect binding or tape binding. Digital print applications frequently use heavier stocks and need the flexibility to produce a wider range of finished books from a single process, with little or no operator intervention - the Watkiss PowerSquareTM is a perfect match.
