The UK’s leading distributors of binding machines and digital print finishing equipment

Fastbind products

Ashgate Automation has been providing expert solutions for the printing and binding industry since its launch in 1989. We are proud to be the UK’s foremost and most-trusted distributor of the Fastbind range of photobook makers, case makers and binding machines.

The Fastbind range is undoubtedly today’s market leader, providing complete solutions for the on-demand binding and photobook making sector. These superb systems make it possible to produce a whole range of top-quality products quickly and simply. Find out more here.

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 new site in Chalgrove has also doubled our warehouse capacity to accommodate increased stocks of Fastbind and KAS products and supplies. So you can feel reassured that we can provide the stock that you need quickly. 

The Ashgate quality of care promise

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.
