Esko (www.esko.com), a leading global supplier of integrated solutions for the packaging, labels, sign and display industries, has launched the Kongsberg C66, a digital finishing table designed for short run production of corrugated applications.
Built on decades of Kongsberg table innovations integrated with Esko software solutions, the Kongsberg C66 is the largest digital cutting table for heavy-duty corrugated production. It was developed based on market demand as part of Kongsberg’s robotics program. Its combination of size, speed, and precision on heavy-duty rigid materials such as corrugated cartons make it a flexible and effective alternative to conventional diecutting equipment for short run corrugated productions of packaging and P-O-P displays.
Unique in the marketplace, the Kongsberg C66 can run at 100 m/min. It can handle either manual multi-zone production of large 2.2m-by-3.2m (87-by-126-inch) sheets or single-zone production of large 2.5m-by-4.8m (98-by-189-inch) corrugated sheets. This makes it ideally suited for the production of protective packaging with a maximum sheet size of 2.5m-by-4.8m, corrugated containers made from HD double-wall or triple-wall corrugated and packaging and P-O-P displays. The Kongsberg C66 is also capable of processing other materials required in the protective packaging environment, including foam cushioning materials.
