Squareback and face-trim booklets off-line

Published by Greg Polk on Mar 17th 2020

Formax announced a new machine for squaring and face-trimming booklets in a single pass. The new Formax Square iT2 Booklet Finisher is an off-line machine that is hand-fed at up to 900 booklets an hour.


Squaring the booklet's spine helps flatten it for a professional finish similar to perfect bound books.

The Formax Square iT2's duty-cycle rating is 20,000 booklets/month or less. The list price is $13,995. Over five years at 20,000 booklets per month, your cost to square and face-trim booklets is just over a penny per booklet. The figure excludes labor and maintenance costs.
