April 2018 : Back to Basics.

    Whilst priding ourselves at AGX on being a “Leading Edge High Tech” company, we can also go back to basics when required.

As these devices have been well used over many years they can require regular cleaning. Following a request from the police AGX have initiated an analogue comparator cleaning and repair service. For more details please contact us.    AGX

February 2018 : AGX release the new TreadPrinter 6x14 footmark printer.
