Overview

The Fastbind Pureva XT is a top-of-the-line hot melt glue binder that works with both EVA and PUR glues, for ultimate versatility (when using PUR glue, be sure to have positive ventilation hooked up to the unit). And with the innovative glue tanks and mechanisms, changing between the two is simpler than any other machine. With just 1 operator required, this heavy duty glue binding machine will produce hard cover books, soft cover / perfect bound books, tape / strip bound books, and tear-off notepads. With your operator on complete control, speeds up to about 3 books per minute (or about 180 per hour*) are achievable. It can handle cover sizes up to 17.9" x 12.5", allowing for sheet sizes including 11" x 17" and 12" x 17" tabloid books, 8.5" x 14" legal size books, 12" x 12" photobooks, and many more. It is incredibly simple to use, requiring no special training or complicated change overs with cover and spine sizes (check out our how-to videos); even changing the cleaning the glue tank, switching from EVA to PUR, and replacing the tank are easy to accomplish.

It will handle a book thickness up to 1.9" (or 50mm) and will bind at speeds up to 3 books per minute, depending on your book type and operator. Check out instructions for how to use the Pureva XT for each different type of book binding style below, as well as instructions for how to clean and change the glue tank.

How to Bind Hard Cover Books:

What You Need:
   • Fastbind Pureva XT Machine (Hard Cover Kit Included)
   • Your Pre-Made Hard Cover (Case)
   • Your Pre-Printed Book Block (Inner Pages)
   • Fastbind End Sheets
   • EVA Glue

Instructions:
   ① Put your EVA or PUR glue granules into the glue tank on the right of the machine, and turn it on. Allow about 10-15 minutes for complete melting, depending on how full your tank is and the glue type. It will hold between 8-10 oz. of glue. While you wait, attach your end sheets to your book block and place the nipper from the included tool kit onto the machine. You can also turn on the binding light, if desired, for better visibility. If using PUR glue, make sure your machine is properly connected to a positive ventilation source.
   ② Once warm, put your hard cover into the turning station. The inside of your cover should be facing up. The front cover and spine should be on the bottom of the station. Lift up the spring loaded peg (a part of the hard cover tool kit) and slide your cover underneath.
   ③ Put your book block into the cover and press it up against the peg (do not lift the peg). This centers your book block in the cover so you don't have to do it visually. Press the clamping bar (handle in the middle) against the stack; then lift the handle to lock it against your book block.
   ④ Use the turning station handle (on the right) to flip the station (and your book) backward, into the machine. This exposes the spine to-be-bound, facing it toward the ceiling.
   ⑤ Pull the PGO rougher (on the left) across your book spine, and back. This adds texture to the spine to allow the glue to penetrate your pages and create a strong bind. If you are using thick or coated paper stock, repeat this step a couple of times to penetrate even better.
   ⑥ Pull the gluer (on the right) across your book spine, and back. Repeat, if desired.
   ⑦ Lift the portion of your cover that is facing you, and press it against the book block a few times to position the adhesive. Then wrap it over the book block.
   ⑧ Pull the turning station handle (on the right) back toward you and release the clamping bar (middle) by pulling it down and out. Pull the book out from under the peg and remove the book through the bottom of the turning station.
   ⑨ Place your book (spine down) into the nipping station (a part of the hard cover tool kit), then press and hold the turning bar handle (on the right) all the way down to nip the spine. Nipping finishes the bind and crimps the spine for a professional finish. Flip your book over and repeat this step to the other side.
   ⑩ Remove your book and lay it flat to peel the end sheet liner, closing the cover over the exposed adhesive. Flip the book and repeat for the other end sheet.

 

How to Bind Soft Cover Books:

What You Need:
   • Fastbind Pureva XT Machine
   • Your Pre-Made Wrap-Around Soft Cover
   • Your Pre-Printed Book Block Pages
   • EVA Glue

Instructions:
   ① Put your EVA or PUR glue into the glue pot on the right of the machine, and turn it on. Allow for approximately 10-15 minutes to melt completely (will depend on how full your tank is and the glue type). The pot will hold between 8-10 oz. of glue. While you wait, make sure you have a positive ventilation source hooked up, if you are using PUR glue. You can also turn on the binding light, if desired, for better visibility.
   ② Now place your pre-made soft cover into the turning station. Your back cover and spine should be on the bottom, and the inside of the covers facing up.
   ③ Place your book block into the cover and line up to the peg. Press the clamping bar against the stack, lifting the handle to lock it.
   ④ Lift the handle on the right to turn the station back, exposing the spine to you. Crease the edge.
   ⑤ Pull the "rougher" on the left to micro-slit the spine of the book. This roughening process opens up your stock so that the glue is able to penetrate into each page properly for a strong bind. If you are using especially thick or coated papers, then you can repeat this step a couple of times.
   ⑥ Pull the "gluer" on the right to apply glue to your spine. Repeat this step if more glue is desired.
   ⑦ Lift your cover and press it against the book block a few times to position the adhesive. Wrap your front cover over the book block spine.
   ⑧ Pull the handle back down, rotating the station back to its original position, and push the handle all the way down, holding it firmly. This step presses your book block into the spine of the cover.
   ⑨ Release the handle and clamping bar to remove your book from the bottom of the station.

 

How to Bind Tape-Bound Books:

What You Need:
   • Fastbind Pureva XT Machine
   • Fastbind Lay-Flat Binding Strips
   • Pre-Printed Book Block (Inner Pages)
   • Scrap Paper
   • EVA Glue

Instructions:
   ① Turn on the Pureva XT and fill up the glue tank with your EVA glue. Allow about 7-10 minutes for it to melt before binding.
   ② Fold your scrap paper, and place it into the turning station. This will prevent glue from getting onto your machine. Place your tape strip, also folded, on top
   ③ Put the inner pages on top of the tape, and center it as desired. Then press the clamping bar (center) against the stack and lift the handle to lock it.
   ④ Rotate the turning station back by lifting the handle (right), facing the spine to the ceiling. Crease along the edge.
   ⑤ Pull the rougher (left) over your book, and back to create micro-slits into the book stock. This allows the glue to penetrate the pages for a strong bind. If you are using thick or glossy/coated paper stock, repeat this step a couple of times.
   ⑥ Pull the glue tank on the right over your book, and back, to apply glue to your spine.
   ⑦ Pull the turning station handle (right) back toward you and press down, firmly.
   ⑧ Release the handle and remove the clamping bar (center), removing your book and discarding the scrap paper.
   ⑨ Put your book on a flat surface, lift up the tape to expose the liner, and peel it off, pressing the tape to your cover. Flip and repeat.

 

How to Make Notepads:

What You Need:
   • Fastbind Pureva XT Machine
   • Wax Paper (from any Grocery Store)
   • Your Pre-Printed Book Block Pages
   • EVA Glue

Instructions:
   ① Full up the tank with EVA glue and allow 7-10 minutes of melting time before binding.
   ② Place a sheet of folded wax paper into the turning station. This will prevent glue from getting onto your machine, so it is best if it is a bit larger than your book itself.
   ③ Place your book block pages on top of the wax paper, align to the peg, and press in the clamping bar (center handle) against the block, lifting it to lock it in place.
   ④ Lift the station handle to flip the station back, exposing the spine to you.
   ⑤ Pull the glue tank (on the right) over the spine, and back. Repeat to apply a second coat. (Note, the roughing step used on other methods is skipped for notepads)
   ⑥ Pull the turning station handle back toward you, and press it down firmly.
   ⑦ Release the handle and clamping bar, removing your book through the bottom of the station.
   ⑧ Tear off your wax paper.
