DB-280 Table top perfect binder

Perfect for the 'on demand' short run book market

The DB-280 is the replacement for the popular DB-200 and boasts deceptively high production speeds capable of up to 200 books per hour. For such a small machine it offers a truly outstanding performance.

User Friendly Display

The design of the DB-280 incorporates a simple clear operating panel and LED, for single operator use.

Binding With & Without Covers

The DB-280 offers three binding functions in one compact unit:

(1) Padding, ideal for telephone pads, note pads, NCR pads.

(2) Tape bind, this is ideal if you have A4 size covers to use, for manuals, brochures etc.

(3) Binding of books, manuals etc with wraparound cover (perfect bind).

Manual, Automatic Or Padding

The DB-280 can be set to run automatically or manually.
In auto mode, the full benefits of the DB-280 can be realised through the automation of the clamping, release, nipping and binding functions with minimal operator intervention and maximum productivity.


The DB-280 has a quick warm-up time of around 20-25 minutes, with a display on the LED indicating the status of the glue warm-up time (eg from Cold01 to Warm10 and finally Hot20).

Stand-by & Self-Test

Should the DB-280 need to be left idle for a period of time, by simply selecting the stand-by option the glue temperature lowers to avoid the burning and deterioration of the glue. When ready to use again, simply release it from stand-by at the touch of a button and within 5 to 8 minutes it will be ready.

During initial warm-up or after stand-by, once the glue temperature has reached the ideal operating temperature, the DB-280 automatically performs a self test, stirring the glue in preparation for operation, at which point the LED will indicate “Ready”.
