Supplier of integrated solutions for the packaging, labels, sign and display industries Esko has launched Kongsberg C66, a digital finishing table designed for short run production of corrugated applications.
Kongsberg C66 can run at 100 m/min and can handle either manual multi-zone production of large 2.2m x 3.2m (87in x 126in) sheets or single-zone production of large 2.5m x 4.8m (98in x 189in) corrugated sheets.
This makes it suited for the production of protective packaging with a maximum sheet size of 2.5m x 4.8m, corrugated containers made from HD double-wall or triple-wall corrugated and packaging and POP displays. The Kongsberg C66 is also capable of processing other materials required in the protective packaging environment, including foam cushioning materials.
“The Kongsberg C66 was designed to meet market demand for larger format solutions for finishing rigid materials,” explains Tom Naess Esko’s Senior product manager. “It boosts productivity and, when combined with robotics, ensures non-stop production. This allows for fast, efficient completion of heavy-duty packaging and shorter runs without compromising on quality. By moving shorter runs to the Kongsberg C66, operations can eliminate the time and cost associated with conventional diecutting solutions that become unwieldy when dealing with short runs and compressed cycle times.”
The Kongsberg C66’s 3210mm x 4800mm (W x L) work area supports both large-format and multi-zone production. Its Carbon Composite Traverse is rigid, enabling high speed, fast acceleration, quality creasing with minimal deflection.
The larger Kongsberg tables can be set up for MultiZone production, which maximizes production efficiency by ensuring non-stop material processing. While one zone of the table is in action, an operator can set up the other zone by clearing the finished piece and loading a new sheet. The Kongsberg C66 is available through Esko and its resellers.
