|Ashgate Automation at The Print Show
Ashgate has announced that the Print Show will be the first opportunity to launch a new KASfold bookletmaker which can produce short run digitally or litho printed A4 landscape booklets as well as 12 inch square, A5 and A6 booklets, which can be trimmed online. “We believe that there is a gap in the market for a simple to operate, hand fed bookletmaker which can handle a 64 cm 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. (More details to be announced soon).
Ashgate will also demonstrate its range of Fastbind binding equipment including the PUREVA XT perfect binder, which offers a choice of PUR or EVA glue in one system. The PUREVA XT makes it possible to take advantage of the PUR hot melt quality for less than £10,000. It is the only PUR binder available that can bind and case in hard cover books in a single process, in addition to soft cover perfect bound books. They will show how bespoke and paper over board hard covers can be made on the Fastbind Casematic range of case makers.
The Fastbind Fotomount lay-flat binder with its edge to edge binding will be demonstrated producing high quality lay-flat books.
