Ashgate targets gap in market

Ashgate Automation has revealed that visitors to The Print Show this year will be among the first members of the industry to see its new Kasfold bookletmaker—a device it says will fill a major gap in the market.

Lewis Price believes the new Kasfold technology to be unveiled at The Print Show will be a game changer for many smaller printers

The machine is able to produce short run digitally or litho printed A4 landscape booklets, as well as 12”-square, A5 and A6 booklets—which can then be trimmed online.

Lewis Price, sales director at Ashgate, comments: “We believe that there is a gap in the market for a simple-to-operate, hand-fed bookletmaker that can handle a 64cm sheet at an affordable cost.

“This bookletmaker has all the features of the Kasfold Sprint 3000 and more. Kasfold bookletmakers are manufactured by KAS Paper Systems in Dunstable.”

Also due to feature on the Ashgate stand at this October’s event is the company’s range of Fastbind binding equipment, including the Pureva XT perfect binder, which offers a choice of PUR or EVA glue in one system. Ashgate bills the device as the only machine of its kinds that can bind and case in hard cover books in a single process, in addition to soft cover perfect bound books.

In addition, Ashgate will show how bespoke and paper over board hard covers can be produced on the Fastbind Casematic range of case makers, while visitors can see the Fastbind Fotomount lay-flat binder and its edge-to-edge binding capabilities.
