They are easy to handle, stack and pack.

The maximum finished book thickness – 10.4mm / 0.4” (approx 208 pages 80gsm / 21lb bond, 224 pages 70gsm / 18lb 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 PowerSquare™ is a perfect match.

Static Stitching head

Static stitching head and clincher gives consistent alignment and quality The PowerSquareTM 224 has a single stitch head which inserts one to six stitches in the spine of the book. The stitch head and clincher are static, the sheets move to the stitch, not vice versa. This means the stitch head and clincher never have to be moved, so alignment and stitch quality is consistently good.

Up to 6 staples can be applied to one set for 2-up or 3-up production, It also features fully automatic settings for different book size and pagination, including variable stitch-leg length for varying book thickness.
