The team at Ashgate is delighted to be able to offer demonstrations of Fastbind systems in our purpose built 1600 sq ft showroom, one of the largest Fastbind displays in the world. The Chalgrove site in Oxfordshire is very accessible with rapid transport links from nearby London and displays the full Fastbind and KAS ranges, as well as printing and software systems from our partner companies.
Come and visit us in Chalgrove and in addition to receiving a warm welcome you’ll be able to view complete solutions for digital on demand binding through to a complete print facility. You will also find a selection of ancillary machines on display including Ideal guillotines, Maxit adhesive systems and Matrix Duo laminators.

The team at Ashgate prides itself on providing complete technical support from our highly qualified engineering staff. Full product training is included in our pricing, and for our larger Fastbind systems, we can extend training over two or three visits, as you require.
Unlike some other companies, we do not simply box our Fastbind systems and send them out by courier. Although Fastbind systems are simple to operate, the team at Ashgate will provide you with a complete training and support package tailored to your requirements so that you can get the maximum benefit from your new Fastbind system. That’s the Ashgate promise.
Collaboration is the key when we are all aiming towards a shared goal.
We all want to see print thrive, so we are organizing a series of open days over 2019 to celebrate print and highlight all of the exciting technological advances made within this medium.
The first open day kicks off with a Valentine’s Day theme at Ricoh’s Telford factory on the 12th February. Guests will have a chance to not only have a tour of the factory, but see live demonstrations and introductions to each supplier’s products and technologies. There will be additional activities across the day including creating and printing Valentine’s Day cards – and a poetry competition – all in the name of romance.
