Formax Square iT2 Square Back Booklet Finisher

Brand: Formax


The Formax Square iT2 Squareback Booklet Finisher is a compact, user-friendly unit that combines two functions in a single pass: it squares the binding and trims the face edge. Getting professional results from an existing staple-and-fold finisher has never been easier. Squarebacked booklets lie flat, making them easier to pack, store and ship, with the added option of printing on the spine. Operators can choose the amount of square fold pressure to produce the ideal squareback finish based on booklet thickness.

Even squarebacked booklets that are untrimmed have the unsightly look of shingled pages. The Square iT2 makes quick work of that problem, with a powerful face trimming blade, to give them a finished, professional look. For full-bleed jobs, the side trim function trims the top and bottom of the booklet in multiple passes. Trimmed edges are collected in the waste tray which is easy to access for emptying.

The Square iT2 accommodates a wide range of booklet sizes, from 5" x 8" up to 12.6" x 12.2". It processes booklets of up to 50 folded and stapled sheets / 200 page booklets of 20# Bond, up to 20,000 booklets per month. The color touchscreen is easy to use, with step-by-step text and graphic instructions, ideal for operators of any skill level to simply walk up and start producing finished booklets. Users can also save custom job settings for quick recall and setup. The automatic belt-feed output conveyor stacker is adjustable and keeps processed booklets in a neat order.

This compact device can be used either as a hand-feed unit or in-line with a wide range of traditional and digital finishing devices. It’s the perfect complement to print shops, in-plant print finishing operations and offices that want the look and feel of a perfect-bound book, at a fraction of the cost.
